    Armond Budish and Cuyahoga County Council Members

    2079 East Ninth Street

    Cleveland, Ohio 44115


    Dear Armond Budish and Cuyahoga County Council Members,


    You make terrible decisions that waste taxpayer’s money. The unnecessary atrium to the Q shows that you are a legal and political moron. A $200 million dollar renovation of the Q for only a $100 million economic impact is stupid. The Q‘s atrium was your way to patronize Dan Gilbert your Jew friend from Detroit. Gilbert made billions on home mortgages. He also made many bad loans and paid off the corrupt politicians and Judges. Gilbert is planning to build the tallest high rise in Detroit not Cleveland. We must stop patronizing all companies not headquartered in Northeast Ohio. Spending money to do necessary renovations to the Q itself is money well spent. This money should come from a small percentage of surrounding counties liqueur taxes. The Q didn’t have an atrium when the NBA had their All Star game here in 1999. Armond, you were unable to sell the NBA on using a remolded Q without the atrium and letting them to use the 1 billion square foot new Convention Center for their NBA festivities. You have done nothing to help Cuyahoga to be considered by Amazon for their 2nd headquarters. Governor John Kasich is working very hard to have Amazon in Columbus. This would keep Kasich from going to jail for stealing over $6 billion dollars of liqueur tax revenue when he opened up his own Commence Department called “Jobs Ohio”. If I was Director of Commerce for Ohio, we wouldn’t have had to open up his new commerce department. Implementing several of my great ideas would have given Cuyahoga County and Ohio a greater chance to be Amazon’s 2nd headquarters. Every time we have a Governor that is not from Northeast Ohio we get screwed. Kasich is from Pittsburgh. Budish, you did nothing to improve Health Services in Cuyahoga County from our 65th pathetic ranking in the state. Budish, why did you refuse to meet with me and a former commissioner whose county is usually ranked #1 in Health Services? Failure to have these important meetings resulted in no improvement in our Health Service ranking. You would have also learned of all the great ideas that you could have implemented to attract Amazon and other companies to relocate here. Instead you covered up the corrupt activity of your county employees and Communist Nazi White Raciest Irish probate Judge Laura Gallagher. Since you are Jewish give your family the Communists Nazi experience. My Father and Uncle were both World War II veterans and that is why you enjoy freedom. Also, when are you going to retrieve the over $9 million dollars that Judge Antony Russo’s Brother Frank Russo and other county employees stole so that I can receive the financial damages that the county owes me? The county prosecutor’s office continues to be corrupt. .Prosecutor McGinty fixed the Brelo trial with his Irish friends so that Brelo would be found “not guilty”. Irish O’Malley is a witch hunter. The corrupt hateful Irish control the Governor, Judges, police departments and prosecutors. The Irish continue to hate us Italians/Sicilians, Blacks and other minorities. My attached letters further explain this situation and damages owed to me. The population of Cuyahoga County continues to drop even though downtown Cleveland’s population is increasing somewhat. Our young college educated children continue to relocate outside of Ohio. Because you, Armond Budish failed to do anything great for Cuyahoga County you must RESIGN!!!!!


    Sincerely,


    James M. Catalano

    Since Gilbert pulled out, what is your plan to replace the jobs lost and income lost because of this.

    NO idea HOW viable You are or long term affect, ‘future’ but You sorta have hit a nerve there of sorts. You may go way of the OCCUPY, other movements and semi historical footnote. Sure Interests will spin this puppy every which way….. rather wry irony HOW RNC among other things ‘gave’. Sour grapes? Pitchfork and tar buckets time? Surprised (them?). Shouldn’t be. EITHER tax code, other THAT out of whack or someone is very delusional &/or Polly Annish. OR all the above…


    SOMEHOW YOU have made ‘the grade’ on a wide enough platform which give You credit for that OTHERS weren’t able to do thou quite frankly THEY had issues, etc. SURE YOU will feel heat to rest of it… BE CAREFUL. BE amazed @ WHO PO n what THEY could do thou FINALLY interests WON 93% of what they sought. WHILE I think came HOME to roost far as certain politicos, NGO non profits (QUESTION that status or ‘term’).

    QUicken Loans Arena ‘loan’? Its ALL of it. SEMI suprising considering NBA ‘16 Cavs FINALS win. ANTI one % wealthy Yuppie vote. Culture crud conflict condundrum to rest of it. SURREAL how DJT able to parlay that. IF can figure THAT out got a winner there. NEO blew WHAT on MED MART/CCC/D.Cleveland Hilton which NOW like this barely mentioned pseudo white elephant, ’tarbaby’ orphan in so many senses of the word… COULD have DONE A LOT of stuff, incremental rehab but instead let it all get to point this ‘dire,urgent’ project that took on life of own…. Whatever validity had by time DIMORA FCI 560275-61 and rest got done it helped take the system DOWN…or sure changed it in a free for all scramble for the tarnished, dented ‘Crown’ in the gutter moment there…. Yeah ed n meds along w/rest of it is the FUTURE and, yes, folks could have planned before or just realize changes, ‘adopt’ but somehow all that got lost on folks…. DO have to wonder WHO the advisers are in all this as were. IF want trickle down economics THIS is perfect case… well if a GOOD looking gal (guy) ‘willing to do X’ then yahoo baby and earn big $ that pays the bills, earn the education. LIMITS to that dynamics. DOES have feel of a walled off city cant relate too n wont get much out of …. take that back. IF on the edge, tired of battling old house, etc. YUPPIE chasers and THIER $ enables a buy out and escape from all that so a win of sorts. Get some $, peace, calm.


    CMSD? GALS least MORE able to ride New Economy. More geared towards them w/whatever ‘fallout’ that entails as all THAT spins out… STARK ENTERPRISES and rest of that? THINK run its course. HOW many satellite expat IT, ed n meds campus/offices of “Name” firms can one have FINALLY doing what work for WHO? ONE thing some old, small historic tax cred old office buildings. NOT new mega huge structures. Put it THIS way… look up articles concerning CHINA’s EMPTY MANHATTAN SKYLINE circa March 2016. STILL see HOW many for rent, for sale signs across NE OHIO even in hot areas. STARK couldnt get a freaking 2 story garage up in WAREHOUSE DISTRICT yet offers this 51 story monstrosity on East 6th? OVERPRICED. INSANE. FAIR chance all this stuff turns into NEXT! ASSININE AMERITRUST ABOMINATION. MAYBE I am assuming worst case scenario but I just don’t see it….


    Got PD/ADVANCE Media The Opinion forum Sep.2015 panel on like WKYC 3 or one of those saying CUYAHOGA COUNTY semi broke, had to dip into rainy day fund in ‘15 to cover employee med costs cuz underfunded the fund &/or miscalculated premiums, etc. and YET talk of funding this n that or micro lending? FINALLY @ end of day HOW MUCHDEAD CONCRETE” does one want to build or keep ’afloat’? IWA to rest? ONE thing bridge rehab. Yeah OTHER states have OWN unions or fighting unions and yeah pension obligations but FINALLY ‘reality’ hits. CITY shot bolt w/west 78th rehabbed underground pass going to Edgewater Pk….


    DONT get tooo excited. WE ARE NOT a Euro socialist country or background by ANY STRETCH. DESPITE all the blank that has gone down. HAD wins like SOCIAL SECURITY, PBGC, VA, MEDICARE, etc. but lot of folks still peeved @ caddy welfare moms to all the rest of it. NOT gonna change THAT lexicon any time soon if ever. LOOK @ 2010 CUYAHOGA COUNTY election. ELLISON the eco green architect got what 2 % of the vote? ED Fitzgerald semi screwed up but again FEW or NO DEMS can win state wide vote… SHERROD is almost a outlier on that score…. EVEN when DEMS/programs successful SOMEHOW doesn’t translate. I THINK its still the machismo thing meets ‘private shame thing’. LOT of toxic swirled together ‘chemistry’ here. OR people feel have to contain more rabid, wild haired aspects of socialism or WORSE. SOME stuff just don’t fool with. AS in a circa 2008 OHIO HSR Strickland gig which certainly did NOT help Him win…. LOOK @ AMTRACK. Heck. OUR own RTA. Ok so RED LINE was ANOTHER pseudo statement bizarre PR BI CENTENNIAL self gift there. FOREST CITY summed it up w/THIER FINAL big time sell off. or utilizing CSU UST 611 study far as their bargain basement scarfing of SCRANTON PENINSULA and ONE of ideas floated was ’GRAFFITI PARK". K&D had HOW much trouble w/STONEBRIDGE II? Settled out of CH finally @ what $10 MILLION and handed over 11 units to a lawyer/claimnant syndicate?


    Far as this threadline? BERNIE SANDERS? Didn’t find out in ’16. MAY never find out. Tales a 1933 or ’80 or ’82 or a 2008 to change the mood, lexicon. yeah private gray money and all that aka PACS….


    AND they wonder WHY 333 agents ran thru city checking up on it all and hauled a U haul big stake truck sized TRUCKLOAD of records away? SOME got the idea, caught religion. OR lot more careful. THINK port authority. THEY help find, issue bond issues BUT cleaned up house there.


    DICK PACE and CUMBERLAND far as Neuvo or E.9th voinivich pk stuff? MAYBE last gig there…. HOW many GBLT IT SM savvy whatever types running around DESPITE insane COASTAL housing costs? WHAT? THINK El Nino, rest of it will wipe all that out? APPARENTLY message lost on FCE or whoever is gonna build that insane high tech $10 billion gig out on that ADHD closed insanity asylum whose Name I forget there…


    MAYBE future is crowdfunding meets Freakonomics meets rest of it but to OUR crew it just comes across as a threadbare cheap salve among other things….


    2017 elections. OR ’18? Yeah I can see WHY think can win or win big enough… still a long shot. ONE thing a issue. PAST LEVIES as in 1996 new CMSD vote win? PS1 viewed as babysitter, food bank, entertainment as well as teach 3 Rs.


    BURBS? NOT gonna win that war tooo well either…is what it is.


    LANDBANKS? Well. WHAT else gonna do? SERIOUSLY…. JEFF JOHNSON and His take on housing, etc. EVEN if true? STILL very old, need big time ENOUGH $ to rehab, RACE thing and whole slew of other stuff. ARE jewels. BUT ONLY so many up to that task, $ input.


    PS1? TIME for 2 track. Lets face it. Certain % just NOT up to regular classroom stuff. IS value to a ECOT or trade school or SOMETHING… if future is uber dog delivery services or whatever so be it….


    I THINK folks FRIED, tired of the CHRIS ROYANANES peddling insane man made bird island WATCHER ‘building’ as Yuppie econ engines or other such dreck. OR stalking out DONNA BRADY…. all this bizarre crap which is a tome in itself. EVEN if system schizoid, semi self serving, CYA still insane… I CAN see WHY ‘natives’ get upset…


    WANT honest truth? THINK indirectly semi servicing ‘defense’ via R&D to Byte Grid to other…. CONSIDERING some of the mentors @ CMU in Pittsburgh and THIER robotics research… SAUDI have KAUST… we have ATHERYSIS? Ok maybe Cleve. Bio Labs closer to mark. TO average slobs who do 1111 different occupations @ 111K firms, other all this feels like some esoteric blank….


    FRANKIE J? MIX for Him. MAYBE feels best deal can get OR thinks can coopt. OR FEARS being overruled, voted out by Big $.

    Remind the senator about Toledo’s water problem two years ago. enlighten the senator about Cleveland’s Cuyahoga river catching on fire on 22 June, 1969. Did he live in a vacuum during those times? Corporate profits over what has happened in the past! We live in a great country, The United Corporations of America.

    thanks to all the losers from your organization that help kill the Q deal. you people are always looking for handouts.

    how about getting an education and working a couple of jobs like I did when I was growing up. Thanks for killing progress. all the jobs

    this project would have created. Having a first class facility, that collects taxes, that helps your garbage people. Thanks for losing the NBA all star

    game that would have generated $50-$60 Million for the city. You are a bunch of losers!!

    I want to start a petition drive to to have Armond Budish and any Cuyahoga County Council member who voted for the Q expansion plan removed from their positions. The Q needs to be maintained and improved but not the elaborate glass enclosure that will do nothing for fan experience inside the Q. This is another waste of taxpayer money. Just go the the 1 million square foot Medical Mart that is being used for yoga classes and no new conventions. Our political leaders must be held accountable for their spending of our tax dollars intelligently. James M. Catalano

    Dear Armond Budish and Cuyahoga County Council Members,


    I have been attempting to meet with you, Thomas Pristow and anyone else at the Cuyahoga County that wants to be present for this meeting. Council member, Yvonne Conwell who heads up the Health and Human Services committee for Cuyahoga County has called me back about our meeting. However since she last left me a message my cell number which 216-406-3585I am not able to connect with any Cuyahoga County employee. This is another problem that you need to fix ASAP. My family was one of the first Sicilians to migrate to Cuyahoga County over 100 years ago. Over 100 relatives were born and lived in Cuyahoga County. Both, my Father, Michael Catalano and his brother, Anthony were World War 2 veterans. We have been Cuyahoga County taxpayers and residences for over 100 years.


    For our meeting I invited several guest to help educate you and your uneducated unprofessional employees at the county of corruption. James Mueller wants to attend. He is an elected official. He served as an Ohio State Representative, former Geauga County Commissioner and is currently Trustee for Russell Township. Russell was recently named Ohio Safest City. Mr. Mueller is extremely intelligent as he is also a Chemical Engineer and President of his own firm, PolyScience. I have several geriatric nurses and personal friends familiar with want happened to me and my Mother in Cuyahoga County. I also have a female who was actual “Kidnapped” and will help educate everyone at the County what actually is kidnapping. Geauga County is the #1 county in Ohio for Health Services and Cuyahoga County is a pathetic 65th. I have spoken with several professionals who worked for Broward County. And they will tell you that what you did to me and my Mother in Cuyahoga County would have never happened in Broward and Geauga County. Corrupt Cuyahoga County Probate Judge Laura Gallagher never had any hearings, changed my parents will, never allowed us legal representation and changed and tampered with police reports. Corrupt Irish Judge Gallagher “Illegally Incarcerated” my poor defenseless Mother. Gallagher also used Cuyahoga County Sherriff deputies and Euclid Police officers to assault/attack me and my Mother. She needs to be removed from the bench and lose her law license. Also why did Cuyahoga County Probate Judge Anthony Russo write a 6 million dollar check to the Tamir Rice family? These damages owed to the Rice family were on the City of Cleveland’s tab not Cuyahoga County’s. When Judge Gallagher removed my Mother from my luxury Lakefront Penthouse apartment all of my Mother’s expenses are now owed to me by Cuyahoga County. I have filed grievances with the Ohio Supreme Court about our corrupt legal system that is controlled by the hateful Irish. I am also planning to meet with all elected officials regarding this situation.


    Fix all these problems or for the good of Cuyahoga County just RESIGN and let have a leader with problem solving skills that you lack.


    Sincerely,



    James M. Catalano

    Hey there! I’m a fellow Trump resistor from Virignia. I’ve been studying the AHCA pretty closely, and there’s a serious, little-known loophole. I’m trying to spread the word about it. The ACA prohibits insurers from imposing annual or lifetime caps on benefits under Sec. 2711, but this protection only applies to “essential” benefits. If the state were to opt out of the 10 essential benefits under the MacArthur amendment, this prohibition would become null, and insurers could again impose coverage caps. This would leave people exposed to bankruptcy risk from catastrophic illnesses, whether with marketplace non-group insurance or employer-sponsored group insurance. This is a fatal flaw. I hope this info is useful to you. Please spread the word!

    CCPC:


    Let me know what I can do to help to prevent the Q arena upgrades. Heres the letter i wrote to Councilman Kelley:


    The Honorable Kevin Kelley


    I never supported the usage of public funds for the Q Loans upgrades. I am disappointed by the end result but not surprised.


    Even someone who has used the Q Loans I don’t see an added benefit in the renovations. I also anticipate ticket prices will rise astronomically just as the team will have peaked. I will not pay these prices. In fact, I have stopped going to the Q Arena because prices have already gotten too expensive.


    Unfortunately, I am not optimistic that leaders can learn from their mistakes of continued borrowing for financing stadiums and other corporate interests. I fear that many leaders will experience individual benefits of supporting corporate interests that outweighs their individual morality.


    Ultimately, it is my generation that will pay for the deficit run up and borrowed Chinese money to pay for such false investments such as these. A sports team is and will always be a psych asset to a city and never anything more.


    I fear it will take a very bad depression or recession that affects Cleveland very severely before people understand how badly politics have failed them.


    I understand the challenge of meeting city interests in the middle for the fear of losing the team but city leaders need to understand the extreme bubble our economy is in. Every single dollar used for corporate interests will weigh heavily on the future of our city. When policies are driven by ideology and corporate interests we all lose.


    The Browns will be asking for money next if they ever turn that excuse of a team around. What say you then, if you happen to be still in office?


    I guess I’ll take my large salary and move out of cuyahoga county.

    Join the Cleveland American Indian Movement –American Indian Education Center- “People not Mascots” and American Indian Movement of Ohio Against Racism

    We are issuing an Open Initiation to join us in our fight against racism. Another season of baseball in Cleveland means another year of degradation to Native Americans everywhere. An insult to any group of people based on their identity in that group fosters the growth of racial prejudice against all peoples. The naming of a sports team as a race of people and the flamboyant marketing of a racial stereotype as a team mascot is a moral wrong which must be righted. The red feather worn by Chief Wahoo is a sacred symbol to Native Americans equal to the Cross for Christians, the Star of David for Jewish people, and the statue of Buddah for Buddists.

    Profit, for the team owners and merchandise marketers is the only driving force. Cleveland civic pride cannot rest on racial humiliation. The entire population of Greater Cleveland is degraded and insulted. One Hundred And Two years of Racism.

    To all people of Cleveland: Join the American Indian Community, against RACISM & Wahoo…The fight to claim American Indian Dignity continues. We support Cleveland Baseball BUT CHANGE THE NAME AND LOGO. Racism has no place in our city. We will demonstrate on Opening Day, Tuesday, April 11th, 2017 at 2:00 pm at Progressive Field along E. 9th Street, Gate C, 100ft. North of the Bob Feller Statue on the Grass Area.Make your own sign with our supply’s or bring your own.

    We‘ve been demonstrating and filing lawsuits since the original in 1973, 1995, 1998, as well as a recent case in May 2016.

    To Everyone,

    I attended the Cuyahoga County Council meeting on February 21, 2017 regarding the Renovations of Quicken Loans Arena and these are some of my personal opinions. 1st point is Cuyahoga County should put this issue to a vote in Cuyahoga County. However, we should just pass on the 2019 NBA All-star Game. Have another NBA city in a warm climate location host the 2019 NBA All-star Game which takes place every February. The game has become a “Freak Show” anyways with no defense. We are really going to miss not having a circus. Because Cuyahoga County accounts for a very large percentage of the Ohio State Liquor tax revenue we should have access to this money to renovate and fix the many problems that exist in Cuyahoga County. However, corrupt Ohio Governor John Kasich stole this money for Jobs Ohio: http://plunderbund.com/2013/03/14/jobsohio-stands-to-receive-over-6-billion-in-state-liquor-money/ The Justice Department put Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora in Federal Prison for 28 years for building a Tiki bar at his home, giving contracts to his friends and taking several trips to Las Vegas. Kasich lost $500 million in State of Ohio Pension money when he worked at Lehman Brothers then he became Governor of Ohio. Our local Democrats stole over 5 million dollars from the Veterans Administration that was to go to assist homeless veterans in Northeast Ohio. Cuyahoga County should get back the millions of dollars that employees and ex-employees stole from us over the past many years and they must go to Kasich and get our liquor tax revenue.

    The Q does need to be maintained and necessary renovations. It doesn’t need all of the elaborate outside renovations that they want. The fact that the Q didn’t have a glass atrium wasn’t a deal breaker for the RNC. Cuyahoga County must stop wasting taxpayer’s money. They are 1 billion dollar in dept. The County just wasted millions of dollars for hosting last year’s 3 day RNC convention and spending on the Medical Mart that never happened. The local trade unions can make money rebuilding, remolding our neighborhoods and tearing down all the vacant homes and factories in Cuyahoga County. WTAM’s Will Burge made an excellent presentation on why we don’t need to renovate the Q and must fix our social problems that go un addressed. Cavaliers’ CEO Len Komoroski made a very good long presentation that showed the Nationwide Arena in Columbus and their 70 foot impressive glass enclosed atrium. This is why the NBA should have their All-star game in 2019 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus. At the same time we can all waive “Goodbye” to John Kasich.

    The Q should make an effort to have a National Hockey League team in Cleveland. The great rivalries already exist between many of the current NHL cities. Also have the NFL have their ProBowl game ever year in Canton, Ohio in conjunction to the Hall of Fame festivities held there during the 1st week in August. Between 1970 and 2009, this game was usually held the weekend after the Super Bowl. Since 2010, the Pro Bowl has been played the weekend before the Super Bowl. Players from the two teams competing in the Super Bowl do not participate in the ProBowl. By doing this all ProBowl players from all the NFL teams can all participate in this game and full week event. Cleveland can partner with Canton to get involved with this great event that would benefit all of Northeast Ohio.

    Sincerely,

    James M. Catalano

    Instead of using tax dollars on the arena take the peoples funds and donate to the Cleveland Free Clinic. The tax funds should be spent on the citizens, not spent on wealthfare. If the citizens are to be self reliant why are businessmen allowed to live off the tax payer? If the workers in the building trades want the sports buildings re built every five years make the businessmen pay out of their pockets. How does the tax payer benefit? Jobs pushing tube steak and popcorn for minimum wage! Vote the Businesscrats out of office! The Businesscrats just think of us as nothing more than sources of revenue, and cheap labor!

    Today across America, thousands are protesting President Trump’s recent ban on illegals. My ancestors discovered America. My Grandparents were one of the very first legal immigrates that settled in Cuyahoga County from Sicily over 100 years ago. My parents, I and hundreds of relatives were all legally born in Cuyahoga County. My Uncle Anthony and Father Michael Catalano were World War 2 veterans. Corrupt Cuyahoga County employees have shown our family no respect. Our family members have paid a lot of taxes to Cuyahoga County for over 100 years and I personally have saved Cuyahoga County over 50 millions dollar. Since Dan Gilbert and LeBron James were not born in Cuyahoga County, they don’t live here and have never saved the county one cent, Cuyahoga County should start showing them the same disrespect that they have shown me and my good family over the years. Cuyahoga County must fix the major major problems that still exist in the county before fixing the Q. Stop wasting Taxpayers money!!!!!!!!!

    I find that this is ludicrous! How can the elected officials think that the tax payers should pay for this wealthfair. It is time the business bastards become self reliant. I encourage you to read the book " Field of Schemes" What does one expect from our Businesscrats. The citizens are thought of nothing but sources of revenue! Time to vote the sellouts out of office. I know of a women who’s house was broken into. Took the Cleveland police 7 days to investigate, while they can’t move fast enough for a sports building. The Bbusinesscrats only get away with what they do because of the voters!

    Both Quicken Loans and the Howard Hanna made over a Billion dollars making bad loans and over charging customers for the past 10 years. Let them pay for any and all improvements of the Q since they didn’t have to serve any prison time and the government bailed them out.

    Dear Armand Baddish and Cuyahoga County Council Members,


    Happy St. Valentine’s Day! Over the past 2 years, I have called your office many times requesting a professional meeting with you and your staff. Since you refused to meet with me to fix the problems that your county departments have caused me and my family over the years, I am requesting that you resign as Cuyahoga County Executive. Jimmy Dimora was a much better County Commissioner. This is not a 3 minute fix. Cuyahoga County is still the most corrupt counties in the State of Ohio. The Cuyahoga County is over 1 billion dollars in debt. Cuyahoga County ranks 64th to all counties in Ohio in Health related issues. My November 2014 to you and my July 2015 letter to President Obama explains what happened. In October 2015 I made my in person appearance in front of you and council members and I never heard back from you. My December 2015 letter to you explains why White Raciest Communist Nazi Irish Cuyahoga County Probate Judge Laura Gallagher must be fired along with many other county employees who have violated all of our American civil, amendment and constitutional rights. Why don’t you have your Ms. Urban from Senior Services call Lebron James and falsely accuse him of kidnapping his own Mother and see how that works out for you? Today across America, thousands are protesting President Trump’s recent ban on illegals. My ancestors discovered America. My Grandparents were one of the very first legal immigrates that settled in Cuyahoga County from Sicily over 100 years ago. Both my parents and I and hundreds of relatives were all legally born in Cuyahoga County. My Uncle Anthony and Father Michael Catalano were World War 2 veterans. Both these 2 very tough World War 2 veterans are the reason that Hitler didn’t eliminate the Jews and your family from the face of the earth. You and your corrupt Cuyahoga County employees have shown our family no respect. Since our family members have paid a lot of taxes to Cuyahoga County for over 100 years and I personally have saved Cuyahoga County over 50 millions of dollars I want to be compensated for all the damages that you have caused me and my family. My April 2016 letter to you breaks down the financial damages that Cuyahoga County owes me which is over $3,000,000. Fix my home and family that you destroyed before you spend a penny fixing Quicken Loan Arena for the billionaires who steal and bribe corrupt politicians like you. Stop stealing and wasting taxpayer’s money!!!!


    In addition to these damages, I am requesting that you and Cuyahoga County pays for a full page apology letter that will be published in the Sunday Cleveland Plain Dealer that will explain why the Cuyahoga County is paying me for all these damages.


    Sincerely,


    James M. Catalano

    Dan Gilbert is a Billionaire because he made a lot of bad mortgage loans. Let this out of town thief get together with Pittsburgh based Howard Hanna who also illegally made over $200 million when they charged customers an extra Administration fee in addition to their high commission rates. Both Gilbert and Hanna pay off politicians so that they can continue to make their millions. Michael Hudson’s book The Monster: How a Gang of Predatory Lenders and Wall Street Bankers Fleeced America — and Spawned a Global Crisis will help you better understand what Gilbert did. Let them pay to fix up the Q with the billions that they stole and made off the public.
