Judging by this comment as well as others you’ve made, I now believe I can easily make that same claim considering that you have “profiled” our neighborhoods for these co-op ordinances because they are not located in affluent sections of town, much like your own home on the hill is.

Your section of the hill will never be subject to co-ops Ms. Burton. How do I know this? Because I visited the Assessors website to see where your home is located.
