Zimmer ignores cancer victim’s letter
Sick Senior visiting Hoboken from 400 miles away booted & ignored
But what happens when the victim of such a racket was not only a visitor from far away – but a sick senior citizen? Well, it seems that even after writing a letter to Mayor Dawn Zimmer and Traffic Czar Ian Sacs – the city just doesn’t give a damn.
Letter: Visit to Hoboken spoiled by ridiculous parking boot
Here’s a letter that Domenic R. from western Pennsylvania sent to our current administration (he’s a bit behind in his letters, it seems):
“To Dawn Zimmer & Ian Sacs:
I am writing this letter about my experience in Hoboken, NJ on November 23, 2010. I traveled to Hoboken from my home in Pittsburgh, PA (about 400 miles). I had seen on the Cake Boss show about Fiore’s Deli and Mozzarella Cheese and went there to buy some and the roast beef hoagie.
The reason I did this is because I have had cancer and had to under go hospitalization and many months of chemotherapy treatment and I am on a 3-year program where I receive chemo every two months. I also had chem treatment 2 days before and since I have relatives in South Jersey I had a place to stay.
When I arrived on Adams Street, that no parking was allowed, I did see the green sign at the end of the street about no parking since the sign was not red I was there about 1 hour when I came out of Fiore’s my car was booted. This had never happened to me before I had to pay $150 in fees to get my car back which I put on my charge card. I also received a ticket for $68 which I went to court on December 23, 2010 and the charges were dismissed, but I could not get my $150 back.
I am a 67 year old man along with chemo medicines I also have high blood pressure and diabetes medicines which can get very expensive and I am on a limited income. If you need proof of hospitals and doctors I would be happy to provide.
Anything you can do to return my money would be greatly appreciated.
411 Note: What would you have done if you were Mayor and received this letter? Would you have quietly just sent him a personal check for $150? Or would you have just tossed it into the circular file like a cheap, soulless individual?
