Cuyahoga County Land Bank Organization: Remove Gus Frangos as President

Gus Frangos is president of the county land bank which serves to protect county property from the foreclosure crisis, to remove blight from our neighborhoods, and to protect real estate from out-of-state investors that are eager to flip the property for a profit. The county land bank receives millions of dollars in funding that is being wasted. The land bank president is a hypocrite / con artist that can not be trusted and has lost his own shell LLC property to delinquent property tax foreclosure. His own shell property looks like a war zone. He has also given away numerous properties to out-of-state flipper investors. Gus Frangos can not be trusted to be in charge of county taxpayer's property. His six figure salary is paid via the collection of delinquent property taxes. His numerous shell LLCs are or were tax delinquent and owing thousands of dollars. He needs to be removed immediately.

Please sign the on line petition to remove Gus Frangos as President of the Cuyahoga County Land Bank.  Click on the following link to sign:

Gus Frangos

Cuyahoga County Hypocrite Con Artist GUS FRANGOS - President of the Cuyahoga County Land Bank

Folks, it is time to step up to the plate and perform your civic duty.  SIGN the petition and SHARE with all of your friends and family.  SHARE with the WORLD like I am doing.  SPREAD the good word.

Cuyahoga County has experienced corruption long enough.  It is time for citizens to step up and DEMAND better for our county.  Demand CHANGE.  

Cuyahoga County deserves better than this.  We can not have a con artist / hypocrite in control of the Cuyahoga County Land Bank, MILLIONS of dollars, and thousands of taxpayer's real estate.

America is not a Communist country which allows the government to control our real estate.  The government should not have the ability to decide which person they are going to GIVE our property to and which person gets excluded from purchasing real estate.   The free market needs to take over and get the corrupt government out of this process.

Millions of HUD dollars are being wasted in the Cuyahoga County Land Bank by removing property from the free market so  the land bank can give the property to out-of-state investors that are flipping the property for a quick profit- with the assistance of the county land bank.  Cuyahoga County taxpayers should not be footing the bill for the out-of-state flippers to continue residing in million dollar homes.

Gus Frangos can NOT be trusted.

Gus Frangos is allegedly protecting us from the foreclosure crisis.  Meanwhile Gus Frangos has been named as a defendant in several foreclosure/ civil cases for failure to timely pay his own mortgage on several shell LLCs.

Gus Frangos six figure salary is paid by the collection of delinquent property taxes.  Gus Frangos is or was property tax delinquent on several of his shell LLCs and recently lost one of the shell LLCs when the county foreclosed upon the property for DELINQUENT PROPERTY TAXES.

Gus Frangos is supposed to help fight blight in our county.  Gus Frangos has blighted an entire neighborhood with his dump shell LLCs that look like they are in the middle of a war zone.

Gus Frangos has a history of hiding property behind numerous LLCs and as president of the county land bank this creates a very dangerous scenario with taxpayer property.

Gus Frangos is supposed to protect county property from out-of-state investors that have the desire to purchase cheap real estate and flip it for a quick profit.  Meanwhile the county land bank and several community development organizatins are GIVING or nearly giving away property to several out-of-state investors who are flipping the property for a quick profit.

Gus Frangos is nothing more than a scam artist.  Cuyahoga County has been scammed AGAIN.   

It is a very dangerous position for Gus Frangos to remain president of the county land bank - MILLIONS of dollars and thousands of properties are at great risk with this scam.

READ more here http://realneo.us/blogs/lmiller on all of the details and evidence on Gus Frangos and SIGN the PETITIONSHARE the PETITION.   Spread it like wildfire.     The evidence that I have collected speaks for itself. http://realneo.us/blogs/lmiller

The President of the Cuyahoga County Land Bank - GUS FRANGOS - needs to be removed immediately.

Gus Frangos has created numerous conflicts of interest and is unethical. 

Gus Frangos has violated the trust of Cuyahoga County.

He does not deserve to be president of anything and taxpayers do not deserve to pay his six figure salary.

Any person who would allow their shell property to rot away does not deserve to be in charge of county taxpayer's property.   End of discussion.

Gus Frangos is a master of hiding property and he could very well be hiding taxpayer's property.

GUS FRANGOS is in charge of protecting Cuyahoga County's property and his property looks like this?

003_crop.jpg
004_crop.jpg

Unsecured property - doors and windows wide open.

001_crop.jpg

  White van - license plate # EVC9343

While I was at the property today, I was followed in my car, watched and approached by two men in the above van.

The two men - black, heavy set , 50ish,  well dressed male and young white male passenger- parked in front of the property for several minutes and watched me as I sat in my car.

Prior to getting out of my car, the driver rolled down his window and asked me if I was lost. I believe the driver was Ladon Ruffin, Gus Frangos hired agent.

I was at the property just over one week ago and took these photos.  http://realneo.us/content/hypocrite-con-artist-gus-frangos-president-cuyahoga-county-land-bank-and-his-shell-llc-prope

I decided to go back to the property today to get a better look and see if any of the properties were boarded up and secured after my posting last week.  The numerous properties have not been secured and are dangerous- wide open.

The numerous properties have been in control of Gus Frangos since 2001. 

Cuyahoga County Community Development was named as a party to two foreclosures that were filed against this property.  I believe Gus Frangos received community development money for this property.   

It is unbelievable that the city housing department overlooked these properties for years.   No cases for housing code violations were ever filed- although other property owners with petty violations are often targeted.

It is also unbelievable that the City of Cleveland would not label these properties as 'nuisances' and board up the property at the owner's expense - as is the case for non-connected property owners.

Other property owners in Cleveland have been targeted, fined and had their properties demolished for violations, and their property was no where near the condition of Gus Frangos' shell LLC property.

The shell LLCs are or were RENTAL PROPERTIES - ignored for years - while other less connected property owners actually lost their personally occupied homes.  Many were left homeless.

Instead of Gus Frangos being held to a much higher standard considering his position, he has been give a free ride by the City of Cleveland.   And a free ride by Cuyahoga County on property taxes for numerous shell LLC properties.

 

 

Gus Frangos is PRESIDENT of the CUYAHOGA COUNTY LAND BANK and should be ashamed of himself.  He needs to be removed from his position immediately.

Final property generating rental income - 907 East 70th Street

008_crop.jpg

The above property located at 907 East 70th Street is the only occupied property owned by Gus Frangos shell LLC - Quinn Court Properties.

The rest of the numerous properties are all vacant, deteriorated and wide open to the elements and crime.

This roof on this occupied property has rotten and missing shingles which expose rotten wood.  There is no way that this roof does not leak.

Rusted and broken downspouts and gutters.  

Chimney in need of repair.

Numerous housing code violations on this occupied rental property.

Below is a google aeriel view of the house which shows a garden growing in a gutter area and thru the siding:

It is a pretty secure bet that the ceilings in this occupied rental property look very similar to this:

Quinn Court Properties LLC - Gus Frangos

Gus Frangos' signature appears on numerous mortgage documents relative to Quinn Court Properties LLC - the legal owner of the above dumps.

Hard to believe that Attorney Gus Frangos would be willing to assume the financial liability for these dumps if he did not own them.

Gus Frangos signed the mortgage documents as 'member' of Quinn Court Properties LLC.

I believe Gus Frangos is the only 'member' of this LLC.  I have reviewed dozens of mortgages, deeds, etc., and Gus Frangos is the only connection that I found:

Gus Frangos named Ladon Ruffin as an agent for several of the self-created LLC shell properties- including Quinn Court Properties LLC.

On September 15, 2011, Ladon Ruffin appeared in court and gave sworn testimony that Gus Frangos is the owner of the above mentioned properties and several other properties.  Ladon Ruffin swore under the pains and penalties of PERJURY that he worked for Gus Frangos to collect and hand over rent money- and that he last worked collecting rent  six months prior to the September 2011 court hearing.  Ladon Ruffin specifically mentioned  collecting rent for the property on Quinn Court.  Below is a copy of the court's order:

047_crop.jpg 

 

Gus Frangos has a history of this type of behavior with numerous other properties hidden behind shell LLCs and is a great risk in his position as the President of the Cuyahoga County Land Bank.

This pattern of behavior is unethical and a conflict of interest- at a minimum:

Gus Frangos can not be trusted to be in control of taxpayer's property.
