Malden residents rally against Fannie Mae, foreclosure
MALDEN, Mass. (WHDH) -- Residents in Malden were fighting a foreclosure this morning. They gathered outside Malden District Court to show support for Gary Rogers.
Rogers was scheduled for hearing in court this morning to try to repurchase his home after foreclosure. He's been approved for a new mortgage by a non-profit lender but said Fannie Mae won't accept the offer.
“I just want my house back. I'm willing to pay, to do whatever I have to do to stay in my house, but Fannie Mae doesn't want to do anything with me. They want to stick it to me and take the house and do nothing with it after,” said Rogers.
Thursday’s rally was led by the North Side Bank Tenants Association, an organization that fights bank evictions.
