Colleen Espinosa is a float pool nurse at North Memorial Hospital, and she’s a perfect example of why we need a Main Street Contract For America and a Robin Hood Tax – two causes championed by National Nurses United and MNA.
Here’s her story, as told by her son Nick:
My mother Colleen Mckee Espinosa is a single parent of three who is facing foreclosure after CitiBank refused to accept payment on her mortage, having moved up the due date for her payment without her knowledge. They then added thousands of dollars in attorney fees because the home went into foreclosure, making it impossible for her to catch up.
We have lived in our Northeast Minneapolis home for 16 years, and although we only had six years left to pay off our home, the bank has been unwilling to modify her mortgage so that we can stay in our community.
Colleen has worked as a registered nurse for over 25 years, serving and caring for others, and now she needs our support.
“I’m not leaving my home until we get a good faith negotiation. I’m fighting to send the message to other people not to give up, because if you’re isolated you can’t fight these people. Said Colleen. “The banks that crashed our economy better watch out because people are catching on to their game and we aren’t going to let them take our homes from us.
