We tried to ask a manager if that’s exactly what was said, but she just handed us a statement, refused to answer any questions, and called an officer to escort us off the property, before we could press any further:
“While the Lodge on El Dorado admires our resident’s patriotism, we must enforce our property rules and guidelines. Such guidelines maintain the aesthetics of our apartment community and provide for the safety of all residents. The apartment community already proudly displays our country’s flag in a safe and appropriate manner at the entrances to our community.”
But we saw other patriotic symbols hanging from other balconies in the complex, and Tran doesn’t plan to budge.
It’s Texas. So I hope that a classic Texas shitstorm is in this property management’s immediate future.
