Boseman facing foreclosure troubles again

READ MORE:
boseman300.jpg

There are more financial troubles for state Senator Julia Boseman. Two more properties that she owns are in foreclosure. One is a piece of land on Old Mill Road in Winnabow that Boseman owes the bank about $40,000 on. The other is in Wilmington and is a $300,000 commercial building on Oleander Drive where Senator Boseman used to have her law practice. WWAY called the Boseman campaign, and they said they had no comment on her personal financial matters. They said these financial problems stem from other real estate foreclosures the media has already reported on. Those foreclosures involved the residence of Ms. Boseman's former domestic partner, as well as some lots in Pender County. The latest foreclosure documents were dropped off at our station by an anonymous identity. The Boseman campaign said this is a politically motivated attack and her campaign manager said Senator Boseman has been extremely upfront about her financial situation and she wants to get on with her life. The latest foreclosure proceedings are scheduled for court in November. Ms. Boseman is up for re-election next week.

Can't be

Doesn't she need to be MARRIED to a member of the OPPOSITE sex to go through a divorce?

well great!

Ummm, no. She isn't going through a divorce since she is not married to a man. She should not be a public official if she doesn't want her personal life judged.

Judging Julia

How can we NOT judge Boseman by her personal conduct? Boseman's personal life would be private, if she were not a public official. Let's face it - her personal life is a mess. Her sexual preference is contrary to nearly all of the people she represents, and she doesn't handle that side of her life well, either. Witness the dissolution of her relationship with her "partner", and the ensuing blowup there. And her fiscal abilities are abysmal, to say the least. Additionally, her racism is well known, as the recent articles in the Wilmington Journal affirm. It's time for her to go.

what the heck...

...does race have to do with this? You just proved that you're racist by saying all Boseman haters are white.

The fact that she is an elected official

Is the only reason why we should judge her personal life. And let me just say, she has a very active personal life. She is often seen drinking and lip locking with her girl friends week and weekend nights at our downtown clubs. This women is an embarassment to our community.

Prove it

Prove it, if I see a pic or see some video I will not believe this. If I have to hold my nose and vote for her, because of what she is against, I will. As far as what and whom she chooses to sleep with, is of no concern of mine. She does not have a child to get custody of IMO, and she needs to pay what she owes on those houses. Signed, Not decided.

Jewel

Yeah, she's a real jewel.

Let me preface by saying,

Let me preface by saying, that I do not hate Julia. I believe that she has a big heart, good intentions and truly does want to make a difference for NC. I sympathize with the problems she is having, and that they are being made worse for being made public. I sincerely wish the best for her. Having said that, I think it's time Julia step back in to private life. You're right, her personal problems are personal, and maybe she is one of those people who can manage anything better than personal/emotional issues. But the hard truth of the matter is that her constituents badly NEED someone who has their life together. We NEED someone who has shown personal and profession integrity, and who does not have all these tragic distractions that bring scorn and distrust. I really and truly do support Julia on a personal level, but I cannot for her sake and ours, support her on a political level. She needs time to focus on her life.

Julia Boseman should be imprisoned

Boseman's personal life is personal? Hardly. What sacrifice has that lawbreaker made in her PAID job? She was elected to serve and represent. She serves by breaking the law, avoiding her financial responsibilities. She certainly doesn't represent anyone who lives by the rules. Like it or not, elected officials climb upon their pedestals by their own choosing and leave themselves open to public scrutiny by their own misdeeds. And to the woman who inferred haters are white? What race is Julia, and what does race have to do with setting a good example? Get real.

I could tell

It didn't take your last sentence, to know U were black.

Re: Julia Boseman

I agree. Senator Boseman has been one of the most effective Senators for New Hanover County in history. Yes, she does have personal finance issues, but has she ever been accused of using political funds for personal use? No. Other Senators would and I believe that speaks for Senator Boseman's character. Senator Boseman has put her job in front of her personal issues and I believe that is an admirable thing to do. I wish I could say that same for Liddy Dole who has been nothing but a public embarrassment for the State. Before you judge Senator Boseman and decide to vote for or against her, please look at her record. She is an incredibly adapt woman who knows how to work Raleigh to get things done for New Hanover County. Senator Boseman, thanks for everything you've done, and I hope you go back to Raleigh to represent me and the rest of New Hanover County.

What relevance

does Senator Dole have in this? What personal issues in her life do you allude to? Time to put up some specific fact rather than blow hard rhetoric.

Re: Julia Boseman

uh; Liddy Dole is 93 in effectiveness. She does NOTHING for NC. That is the only fact you need to know. I'm sure she's a good person, but she's a lousy representative of NC.

If

Senator Dole is 93rd, where is Senator Obama in that ranking? But again, what relevance does a reference to Senator Dole have in a local election? Looks like some folks will throw mud wherever they can. And for the record, please do not tell me what facts I need to know. Democrats are real good at wanting to limit public knowledge. If you want to go down this road, let's talk about Senator Obama's African relations who are in this country illegally. Let's talk about Senator Obama's yet to be produced birth certificate. Do you really want to keep going down this path? If so, let's go. But then can Democrats stand the light of day?

Julia Boseman supporter - you don't get it!

Julia Boseman works for US, therefore, we have every right to "judge" her based on her personal dealings. I couldn't care less that she's a lesbian, or for that matter that she said the N word. I do however question someone that forecloses on her property and defaults on her legal obligations. That proves to me that she made stupid choices/decisions that were irresponsible. Btw, she isn't going through a divorce, as she isn't MARRIED. She is going through a break up with her partner who as a softball coach, was clearly not the one who was primarily responsible for paying for all of the properties for which Boseman has defaulted. She may be a very nice person, with a good heart, however, I can not cast my vote for someone who has proven themselves to be so irresponsible.

Julia Boseman

And this is who we want representing us in Raleigh? I think not. If someone can't take care of their personal affairs how can they be entrusted to take care of a states affairs. Please, please, don't vote for Julia Boseman!

A good role Model

Wow, she must be a poor lawyer, can't make a enough money to pay her bills. not good leader material. Maybe Gov is the only job she has.

her campaign declined

to comment on her finances except to say that it(her foreclosure notices?) was a politically motivated attack(republicans refused to let her pay her bills) based on her past foreclosures (what?) which were caused because of a bad breakup (I'd love to see that listed as her reason on her credit report). Not only did our senator make horrible personal financial decisions by allowing herself to get overextended in the risky subprime real estate market, she refused to take responsibility for it. Why would any fiscally responsible person vote for her?
