"Mr. Alvarez, in my opinion, is being very negligent and being very abusive of this lady, because she dared come forward about the condition of her unit," said George Alejos, with the League of United Latin American Citizens.
This summer, George Alejos, LULAC's affordable housing director, heard about the case and started asking SAHA questions. Alejos is not an attorney, but he has raised the legal question of "adverse possession." Under this concept, if an owner abandons property and raises no objection to tenants using it as their own, the owner effectively forfeits any claim to the property. "SAHA didn't do any maintenance or provide any upkeep for 13 years, whereas Mrs. Segundo lived there since 1965, didn't pay any rent, and she spent $40,000 on upkeep," Alejos said.
George Alejos, affordable housing chairman for the San Antonio office of the League of United Latin American Citizens, said LULAC has tried without success to work something out with the Maurers to help Tamiga Acres residents.Alejos said LULAC hoped to help the Maurers sell the 20 acres to someone who could repair the septic systems and enable families to stay there."This past Monday, we thought we had a contract at the title company by the prospective buyer," Alejos said."It turns out because of the (Maurer family's) three children's unwillingness to sign the contract, it cratered at the last minute."Alejos said he, the LULAC counsel and the prospective buyer would seek a 30-day extension from Waldrip while the property owner works to buy another site where the families could move."I also ask Mr. Waldrip for a date and time for the eviction hearing that's supposed to take place so we can be there," Alejos said.

George Alejos, a director of District XV of the League of United Latin American Citizens, said that so far, the city had conducted grievance hearings for four of the street department employees he believes were wrongly fired in August and September. City Manager Chuck Pinto hasn't reinstated one of them, Alejos said."My opinion is the city will deny the reinstatement of any employee," Alejos said."They have to do all or none.I don't agree with him, but I have to respect Mr. Pinto's decisions."Alejos said the seven fired employees who have sought assistance from LULAC had been instructed this week to file complaints with the EEOC."We didn't want to go that route, but the city's actions have left us no choice," Alejos said."We think these men have valid complaints."Also, Alejos added, some of the workers would soon be talking to a San Antonio attorney familiar with labor issues who could accept their cases on a contingency basis."If the attorney doesn't win, she doesn't get paid," Alejos said."We found some interesting news," Alejos said of the employee, who he did not identify.They suspended him for two days, but he was allowed to keep his job," Alejos said."He must have cut a deal.If he was guilty of the same actions as his co-workers, why was he given a suspension?That's food for thought."Two of the fired workers, Alejos said, are now drawing unemployment insurance."I've instructed the other five to contact the Texas Workforce Commission so they too can be paid during the time this is being resolved," Alejos said.
