Default Frustrated with Conditions - How to complain?

Greetings All,
This is my first post and I'm not sure of what I'm doing but giving it a shot anyway. I'm hoping someone can give me some direction on where to direct my concern. To make a long story short the roofs are leaking so badly on A yard that my fiancé has spent the last 2 days mopping water off the floor. His isn't the only cell with water running down the walls. Many of the cells are too as well as the dayroom. Currently they are being cell fed due to the roof in the chow hall leaking. This isn't a current issue, the roofing problem has been just that since last year.
Who should I direct my concern to? Any information or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. The conditions in that building and probably the others is unacceptable

PLEASE: Email the OMBUDSMAN: Karin Richter: Karin.Richter@cdcr.ca.gov
Her number (916) 324-5448

In the email be sure to CC her boss Sara Malone: Sara.Malone@cdcr.ca.gov
Her number (916) 324-8263

Our love ones should not have to endure these types of conditions.

Good Luck

I hope this helps.
