Assemblyman Andrew Raia shakes hands with Susan Lagville, Executive Director of Housing Help, Inc., a Huntington-based home-assistance organization. Raia and Housing Help co-sponsored the January 13 event.
“Increasingly, homeowners in our area find themselves underwater,” said Raia. “Suffolk County foreclosures rose 37 percent in 2009 and our national economic recovery has a long way to go. I would like to thank Housing Help for their commitment to mitigating the foreclosure epidemic on Long Island, and I look forward to joining them for future informational seminars. I send my gratitude, also, to all those who attended the January 13 event. I hope to continue to fight for your rights as homeowners.”
