Lakewood doomed housing rally

One person that has not given up:


The Rev. Kevin Nunn took deep breaths like a preacher is wont to do and bellowed his introduction at today's sparsely-attended housing rally in Town Square.
"Is anybody here?'' the leader of the Lakewood Improvement Association questioned.Well, no, not really.
A handful of people showed up at the afternoon event meant to be a wake-up call to raise awareness of the need for affordable housing but most of the crowd showed up for the rally's free hamburgers and hot dogs or a nearby clothing and food giveaway sponsored by a local church.
Some activists blamed the turnout on residents who have lost hope...
