Reflecting The OCDAC Chairman’s Disappointment

Posted by ocdac on February 2, 2013

I have to reflect my disappointment in not getting the upstairs unit after my appeal to the public for assistance in raising the $70,000 I needed to secure a loan for it. Today I learned it was sold for $90,000 cash. If the deaf community can easily spare all that cash to a violent woman like Dawn Schriver like they did last month, they add insult to the good guys that try to raise money to help more deaf people.

I promise I’m not letting the deaf community get away with this.
