Simon Saddened

Dear Editor,

We are saddened by the fact that the president of the Dayton Beach Park Coop, Jennifer Grady, does not want to be honest about my role in trying to solve the water bill crisis and save Dayton residents large financial penalties. We were back and forth on her business and cell phones with DEP. The plan we negotiated with DEP was a good, but temporary offer. Because Grady did not want the offer or did not know how to accept it, the offer expired.

If Dayton Beach Park shareholders or the local press want to check this story please contact me and we will arrange an interview. Stop playing silly, childish games. It is time for you to give credit where it is due. I opened the door for you but you did not do the right thing. I said that helping the community this way would help get me elected City Councilman. Grady agreed and helped circulate petitions for my election.

It is very sad that the Local 32BJ contract is still being hijacked.

I came to Dayton Beach to help them ask for their contract. They had neglected to get a sound permit. I had to use my big mouth instead of a bullhorn. I wish to thank all those Dayton Beach residents who called to thank me for coming out to help them with many problems big and small.

A number of shareholders at Dayton have told me about Grady’s poor management of Dayton’s business. Some said that Grady got them thrown off the board. We understand that some have sent letters supporting me and challenging Grady’s facts to The Wave. When these letters are printed other Dayton residents and the community will understand what this is about.

As a non-paid elected official I feel the pain of living on a limited income. If I had my way I would lower the cost of living, give a COLA to all Social Security recipients and bring the cost of gasoline, water and electricity down, Unfortunately, I don’t have a magic wand.

It is time for Grady to stop trying to defame me. My mother said that a knock is a boost. Just spell my name right and give me the attention I deserve.
