I grew up in the same South Bend @PeteButtigieg, graduating just a year ahead of him. I see how the media is trying to turn some things, especially with our crime rate, so I’ll just give you my perspective. I worked in downtown South Bend 18 years ago at a restaurant /1
and adjoining nightclub. I worked late evenings doing banquets and sometimes coat check. The drug store down the street would close at 6pm because the criminal element got so bad after dark. I would park there and walk the two blocks to work so I could avoid the parking /2
garages. My co-workers would tell stories of their cars being broken into repeatedly. When I would hostess in the restaurant I would see homeless people with obvious mental health issues urinating in front of the floor to ceiling windows that ran the length of our restaurant. /3

This is what "gentrification" looks like in South Bend after @PeteButtigieg's initiatives to restore our lower income inner neighborhoods. This house sits in the heart of the Near North West. It is listed at $88,000 and is in great shape. Thread…?
This is a house just next door listed at $40,000 which is in more need of help, but still livable. These houses can be bought by basically anyone who is currently looking for homes in the market.…?
The national media has claimed Pete's initiatives like 1000 Houses in a 1000 days caused gentrification in #SouthBend's poorest neighborhoods. That just isn't met with the facts on the ground. What those programs did is make these neighborhoods viable again.
