Ramona Sierra & Suzanna Bermudez Eviction Fund

$1,165 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 25 days
Ramona Sierra, 90, and Suzanna Bermudez, 65 and disabled, are on the verge of being evicted from their rent-controlled bungalow homes at 4524 Eagle Rock Boulevard in Eagle Rock. Ramona has lived in her bungalow for 40 years; Suzanna for seven. Neither wants to move, much less out of Eagle Rock. But the owner, Randy Stevenson of Allegro Capital Partners, LLC, plans to renovate and sell their homes and the other three bungalows on the property.  

On Wednesday, Sierra and Bermudez were at City Hall to attend a hearing in the City Planning Department about the owner’s application. Sierra took the bus to City Hall, where she met Bermudez, who had taken the Metro rail.

When it was their turn to speak, Sierra asked the hearing examiner, Courtney Shum, for help. “I am 90 years old,” said Sierra. “Thank you very much. I hope you can help me.”

Shum told the women that there was nothing the City could do to prevent their eviction. She said the City’s hands were tied by the Ellis Act, a state law that allows evictions to occur if an owner/developer meets certain requirements.

Note: There is a 45 day period right now in which the case is in review. Many of these cases do end up in eviction, and this period is a great opportunity to donate whatever you can to help out these women . One is 90 years old and the other 65 and disabled, so no matter how this turns out the extra help will be useful.
