(WTVD) -- Water damage, mold and mildew were all found inside Durham Housing Authority townhomes but residents say their complaints weren't taken seriously until the Troubleshooter stepped in."I could see moisture coming under the baseboards of my kitchen," said 69-year-old Lois Green.

It's that damage that got Green's attention. And upstairs, there is also water damage in her bathroom ceiling."I pay rent here, and I should get some action here and I'm not getting anything," she said.SEE ALSO | Woman warns others after buying used car filled with vermin, roachesIn August, Green said she complained to management at the Edgemont Elms Housing, which is owned by the Durham Housing Authority.&qu…

Chip LaMarca, member, Florida House of Representatives

Last week: I was honored to participate in Governor DeSantis' announcement with Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran, proposing an increase in minimum salary for teachers across the state. His 2020 budget recommendation includes a base pay raise to $47,500 for more than 7,200 teachers in Broward and 101,000 teachers in Florida, which currently ranks 26th in the U.S. for starting teacher salary. This dramatic increase would bring Florida to 2nd in the nation. The Governor's proposal will help alleviate the teacher shortage, and give our teachers salary they deserve. Our teachers deserve educate our future leaders and I will fight for them this upcoming session.

Looking ahead: As we return to Tallahassee, I am looking forward to working on the bills that I recently filed for this legislative session. The Student Athlete Achievement Act, HB 287, will allow student athletes to enter the free market, by allowing them to capitalize on their name, image, and likeness. I also filed Law Enforcement Vehicles, HB 307, to ensure that no association can prohibit a law enforcement officer from parking their vehicle at home. Police vehicles should not be considered a commercial vehicle for parking restrictions and I will continue to support our first responders.
