‘This is our community’: Leona Helmsley on the impact of Trump’s policies
Leona Helensley, wife of U.S. Senator Joe Helmsleys (D-NM), has been a vocal supporter of Trump during his presidential campaign.
Her support for the Republican nominee has come at a cost to the family, though, as she told The Huffington Post in a statement that “this is our family, and we cannot let anyone take away what makes us who we are.”
“This is not about us,” she said.
“We have a long, proud history with Joe and our children. “
We have grown to love each other and look forward to living in a nation that values the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. “
We have a long, proud history with Joe and our children.
Helmsley and her husband are raising their three children, ages 10, 9 and 7, in a home that was recently sold to the city of Manchester. “
These are our values, and these are the values our family believes in.”
Helmsley and her husband are raising their three children, ages 10, 9 and 7, in a home that was recently sold to the city of Manchester.
The purchase, which will be managed by a nonprofit called the New Hope Community Development Corporation, was approved by the Manchester City Council.
Manchester Mayor John Thackard, who was appointed by Trump to serve as his representative in the state legislature, was not immediately available for comment.
The New Hope Homeowners Association, which Helmsay said will be responsible for purchasing the property, will also be responsible to maintain the home, which has been home to two young adults for several years.
In addition to the purchase, the city is also in the process of purchasing the land that will be used for the new home.
Helmleys children will also receive a new home, but it is unclear what that home will look like, as the home will be privately owned.
As for the two-bedroom home, it will be in a new building, the New Haven Sun reported.
