Angered By Grady’s Letter
Let me preface this email by stating that I am furious with the letter submitted by Jennifer Grady.
Let me clarify some things for you. Something that maybe should have been done prior to printing.
The rally that took place on Sunday, July 11, 2011 began at approximately 8:30 a.m. not at 7:00 a.m. and lasted until 10:00 a.m. At no point in time did it become unruly or violent. There were no residents or shareholders out there drinking beer, water and coffee were the beverages of choice. There certainly was no littering. And more importantly, Ms. Grady’s vehicle was not rocked, not even touched. My car is the car parked directly next to Ms. Grady. I was there, in my car. Nobody, at any point in time laid a finger on her car (she has a surveillance camera either pointed at her car or in her car, ask to see the tape). This was a peaceable rally.
What Ms. Grady fails to tell The Wave is that she screamed several times off of her terrace the day prior to the rally, calling names and making threats. She fails to tell you how she trundles in and out of the parking lot at rates of speed over 30 miles per hour in reckless disregard of tenants, shareholders and her personal security escorts. And on the day of the rally she persistently kept setting off her car alarm, making as much noise as anybody who attended the rally.
No board members have been harassed. Ms. Grady has not been harassed. These are all figments of her imagination. She has cameras strategically placed all over the buildings, with one right outside her door right now. She claims acts of vandalism, ask her to prove these acts by showing you the tape.
Your photographer was there the day of the rally. Taking pictures. I am sure that your photographer can tell you that at no time did anyone get violent.
As for the remark about the “noose and sheets,“ this is not racial, it never was. I think it is despicable on her part to play the race card. There are many types of races living in Dayton Beach Park and never have we had any type of racial problems. We are not attacking the Russian and Polish people, in fact, we are trying to help them understand by having one of our Russian and Polish workers going to speak with them at the church, in their own language, and a conference call was held by 32BJ in English, Russian and Polish.
Dayton Beach Park is a community, a community of shareholders who care about not only the quality of their own lives, but the quality of the lives of the maintenance staff, who have been working at these buildings for many years. They have become a part of our families. My children, who are now 21 and 19, have grown up with their familiar faces, they know them all by name, feel comfortable with them.
I think in the future, prior to print, you should investigate the facts.
If you want the facts, the real facts, I, along with the over 200 people, (not 50 people as she mentions in her letter) shareholders that have signed a petition would be more than willing to sit down and give The Wave the truth.
