Farmer Harry Young Lobbies President and Congress to Save Black and White Middle Class Farmers’ Land
TO our Esteemed Members of Congress:
The purpose of this letter to the President and members of the United States Congress is that I would like for them to tell me why I cannot get a day in Court, despite filing 500 pages in US District Court. I continue to contact all 535 members of congress, but I get very few replies. When you members of Congress do reply, you say "this is not in my district."
If you are a member of Congress, if you are a lawmaker in the USA, this IS your concern.
Allegedly the FHA/FSA account records of my account reflect a loan balance of approximately $139,000 as of 1980. As of today, the USDA has not verified or substianted this balance, or any other amount in by providing sufficient, written documentation, which is required by law in foreclosure proceedings.
Our family has documentation showing payments made to the FSA ($121, 800.26). The USDA has not, or will not acknowledge these payments. I also have signed receipts from Joseph I. Wathen, the local Daviess County FHA supervisor showing that he received the money. All FSA will say is that I have not made a payment in 20 years. From national televised news, I understand that John Edwards is coming to Kentucky and has asked President Bush to come with him. Something is wrong down here.
I know that the tobacco buy out endorsed by Mr. McConnell has hurt the small and middle class farmers. Here in Daviess County, there is more tobacco being raised now than ever bfore. At least 25-300 acrees per wealthy farmer. What will the middle class farmer and small farmer do when the buyout money is gone?
God is Forever Good,
