The nation’s top housing official got up close and personal with Boynton Beach home owners victimized by defective Chinese-made drywall as part of his recent South Florida trip. U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan met yesterday with some of the 70 homeowners in the Cobblestone Creek neighborhood who have faced health problems and financial complications from the noxious building material, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Heather Desola said her family and neighbors have had a heartbreaking experience, and joined others in asking for more help with grants and assistance with loan troubles.
