In response

To the editor:

I must respond to Anthony Catania’s letter in the March 7 newspaper. 

I don’t believe Mr. Catania shared enough facts to fully understand his issues; however, comments such as these are potentially damaging to our city’s and county’s reputation. Apparently some things happened with a commercial property he owns here, and he was not satisfied with getting the help he felt he needed.

I also own commercial property in Greenville, and I have leases in place that protect both me and my tenants. If one of my tenants should damage one of the properties, then it would be deducted from their deposit. I also have a local property manager who ensures my tenants are taken care of and also make sure my property is being maintained. 

I don’t know what happened to Mr. Catania’s property, but if anyone did something criminal against me, then I would press charges against them through the police department or file a civil law suit against them. These are rights we all have.

As far as the comment that there is a “buddy system” at work here, I am not from the state of Texas, I do live in Hunt County now and I have made the choice to get involved in this city in which I conduct  business. Being involved in the community is not a “buddy system,” but a requirement of good citizenship. I am a member of the local Chamber of Commerce and have joined several organizations including the local Rotary to give back to the community from which I hope to profit.

Many aspects of Greenville and Hunt County contribute to it being a wonderful place to live and work. Of course, we can and should always seek improvements.

Mr. Catania, have you considered getting involved and becoming part of the solution?
