I didn’t mean that to be disparaging or the single factor but when I toured the 
property I was told that with his expertise in putting together various grant 
and subsidy programs, you were able to move forward after a long period of 
feeling stuck — as all groups get for one reason or another.

What I was most impressed with and wanted everyone to know about is that people 
like this exist independently from agencies, banks, etc. Most of us, I think, 
are unaware of this. We rely on bank officers and government officials to give 
us the correct and full information. As anyone who has called the IRS knows, 
that is not always the case. Even after you master the lingo.
