One Taxpayer’s Revolt Against the “System”

Friday September 25, 2015

Re my losing battle with Coast Dental. I sent a letter of complaint to Gov. Scott and
got this reply from Martha Lynn, Office of Citizen Services, Executive Office of the Governor:

“Although we appreciate your concerns and your best source of assistance is to contact
Commissioner Putnam’s Office directly.”

I then sent this letter to her today:

Dear Ms. Lynn:

I followed your advice to no avail and was told:

“We are an informal mediation process and cannot force a business to take any action” You’ll
have to take them to court.”

(Sure! Anyone know a lawyer who will represent me for $1 an hour?)

To Lynn:
I strongly believe we taxpaying citizen’s have a right to be protected and defended
against unscrupulous businesses who rip us off with impunity. What should be done is
to pass legislation
giving the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services power to fine companies
that refuse to arbitrate with complaining citizens as Coast Dental did in my case.

Since Governor Scott is an ex-businessman, I doubt that my suggestion will become a
reality, but I tend to follow the saying that “nothing ventured, nothing gained.”

Last week I sent my complaint to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Iowa, and
have yet to hear from them.

I shall not give up seeking justice until I have exhausted all of my options. I will
keep posting my concerns on Face Book and my website. I am following the admonition of
St. James who said:

“Whoever knows what is right to do and fails to do it, for him it is a sin.”

A sincere frustrated taxpayer,
Francis T. Sganga

Stay tuned. I have just begun to fight!!!

Afterthought: Anybody willing to make a contribution to my taking them to court? I sure would
relish doing it!!! We live check to check and can’t afford to do it.
