Woman forced out her home by DNC convention

Posted by billamos on August 21, 2012 at 5:05 PM


Nadina Monroe has one week to get out of her home. The 27-year-old rents a hotel room at the Motel 6 in south Charlotte.

“It's not much of a home, but it’s a home to me,” she cried.

Monroe is an advertising student at Central Piedmont Community College and works at a local plastics company. She said her income was too unstable to get a leased apartment so she picked the hotel because it’s close to bus stops, as she has no car.

Like a few others across Charlotte, she has been told by a hotel manager that her room has been booked for the Democratic National Convention starting the week of September 2. She claimed she had a two week notice.

“I feel like it’s a great opportunity for Charlotte, but I feel like it wasn't properly thought through,” she said. “There’s nothing out there. No system, no program. There's nothing out there to help me.”

Hey Nadina. You got a two week notice to move out. What more do you want?
