Occupy Homes MN: Save Rose McGee's Home!OccupyOurHomes on November 05, 2012
Rose McGee is working with Occupy Homes MN to get Citimortgage and Fannie Mae to stop her eviction. She's created a campaign on Start2.OccupyOurHomes.org to help build support for her fight natioanally. Rose is asking "CitiMortgage and Fannie Mae [to] reverse the sale and allow me to stay in my home of nearly 20 years." Rose has the money to make payments and wants the banks to take her money, not her home.
In her petition, she tells her story:
I am Rose McGee. Please support me in my effort to get CitiMortgage and Fannie Mae to allow me to stay in my home. I am like you; I have worked hard all of my life. I have contributed to my community. I pay my taxes. I tried to live out the American dream by buying a house. I have lived in my home and paid my mortgage for almost 20 years.
And like some of you I am middle aged and have raised my children in my home. It is the source of my fondest memories, children growing up, backyard barbecues, basketball games in the yard, graduation parties. For nearly 20 years it has been my home.
Unfortunately like many other Americans I was laid off from a job I loved. When I regained employment, CitiMortgage promised to work with me to modify my loan--but at the same time as they were reassuring me that they were going to work with me, they sold my home from under me. Citi says Fannie says they will not re-instate my mortgage. I can pay, I am working, but they don’t want my money. Instead, Citi and Fannie are putting me out of my home that I have worked so hard for.
I don’t understand why they aren’t sympathetic to my plight. After all, the government bailed them out and gave them our tax dollars when they needed help. I am not asking for a handout, just a modification. Please sign my petition asking CitiMortgage and Fannie Mae to reverse the sale and allow me to stay in my home. Thank you. Rose McGee
