       Enclosed please find copy, including all attachments, of our January 20, 2015 letter to Chief of Police Bart Connelly.  Although you were not originally included in the CC's, we have credible evidence that you were directly responsible for the additional, recent, and/or current violations of our Constitutional, Civil, and Religious Rights.  As previously stated, of all the parties committing said violations, you, as a Jurist, would be considered the most culpable offender since you should be the most aware of Constitutional Law, and your abuse of your power would be the most despicable.

 RE: 4033 Country Club Blvd.

 Dear Mr. Foley,

             We are in receipt of your ridiculous letter dated 5-31-11 and your CR #11014631 pertaining to a 11 year old issue which you give us 2 days to respond to your letter and 15 days to correct your claims.
            Unfortunately, I am leaving for New York in the morning to visit my 88 year old brother, a Catholic Priest, who is terminally ill, and will be then returning to California where I live. I do not expect to return to Florida until sometimes in July.
            Exactly, who are you, or who do you think you are to come on to our property and make false accusations that we have committed some type of violation?  Are you telling me that the City of Cape Coral Building Department and the Cape Coral Code Compliance is so inadequate, so dysfunctional, and so incompetent that after 11 years you find that you made a mistake? And that the building permit you issued in 2000 was never finalized? And that your Assessor's Office has mistakenly included said improvements and has assessed property taxes on said improvements for 11 years even though it was "not finalized?"
            What is your Agency? Some kind of Gestapo Agency? or Goon Squad?  Without even contacting us, or checking into the facts, you arbitrarily state that we are in violation of "your City's Codes and Ordinances and requires immediate attention" (after 11 years) and actually issue a notice of violation for an issue that you haven't corrected for 11 years?
            This has all the indications that said false claims are the result of some vindictive, resentful, or begrudging neighbor or want a be policeman who is using you and your agency for their personal vendetta.  It is also a strong indication that you, in your zealousness and maliciousness have come on to our property in a deliberate attempt to find something wrong and have abused your vested authority to find anything to issue your citations.  If this is found to be the case, please be fully advised that further legal action will be initiated.
            Please also be advised that we have no intention to contact you "within 2 days of receipt of (your) letter to discuss how to best remedy (our) infraction."  We have committed no infraction or violation of your Codes and Ordinances and will not be subjected to your belligerent requirement to correct your incompetent problem.
            Please be fully advised that we, The Haven of Divine Love, The Nelsen Residence Inc., a Religious Non For Profit entity, purchased the referenced property in August 2008, and that said purchase was made on the open market, and that said purchase was made with the published information by the City of Cape Coral of the structure as it stands today, and had there been any indication that said property was not as described, we would not have purchased said property with any flaw or discrepancy. As a result, we have now suffered substantial losses due to your incompetence.
            Therefore, please be fully aware that it is not our responsibility to correct your error, and any ramifications to the contrary will result in claims for damages against all City of Cape Coral Departments.
            As to a second issue, you also issued a violation CR # 11014951 pertaining to the absence of numbers on the building. Yet, any First Grade Child would have recognized that the exterior of the building was in the process of being painted and it is customary that various attachments are taken down during the painting.  Is it the custom of the Cape Coral Code Compliance to punish parties for improving their properties?  It was my understanding that the Code Compliance was established to provide a clean and safe environment, and to assist in making Cape Coral a better place to be.  Yet, you, and your agency apparently have an agenda against parties improving their property. How ironic and contradicting, and yet another indication that the City of Cape Coral Code Compliance is arbitrary, vicious, and out of control.
            Regardless, please be advised that we will be filing a formal complaint with all appropriate Agencies, The Cape Coral City Council, and your related agency in regards to your vindictive and irresponsible actions.
            It must be nice that the City of Cape Coral has so much money (from overtaxing it's citizens) that they can spend countless hours and funds running amuck over frivolous or false issues.
            In conclusion, I resent having to waste my valuable time addressing your incompetence and/or addressing an issue that you were required to correct 11 years ago.  Therefore, if the above referenced false claims are not corrected upon my return in July, formal legal suits will be initiated.

Respectfully,

Jerome F. Valenta

 RE: Case No. CE14-009458

Dear Mr. Cassidy,

            We are in receipt of your "NOTICE OF VIOLATION" dated 6/3/14 which was posted on our office door this morning, July 8, 2014.  It states that it was dated 6-3-2014, yet it was just delivered.  Why the delay?
            Regardless, please accept this correspondence as a formal complaint against the City of Cape Coral Code Enforcement Department, you, and your agent, Marilyn Buck.  It is very evident that this is a continuation of the discrimination and retaliation against The Haven of Divine Love, and myself for filing past complaints against your Department and various agents who seem to have a vindictive attitude against our Entity.  It is also suspected that it is a continuation of the collusion, conspiracy, aiding and abetting, and encouragement of complaints filed against us by a Mr. Michael Anagnos in his consorted extortion effort to "close us down," "destroy us," and "sue us for everything they got."  You, as a Government Agency, are acting like strong armed Gestapo Agents to fulfill the extortion and revenge of a very sick and deranged person who is an atheist, hates God, Jesus Christ and all religious entities.  As previously stated in our June 6, 2014 letter, we at The Haven of Divine Love will not tolerate such actions, and will dispute such actions accordingly.
            First of all, let's get one thing straighten out right now.  That sign has been in the same place required to by the City of Cape Coral since 1999.  So, how is it now, after 15 years, you are claiming a violation?  I remember how irritated and frustrated my sister was when she obtained approval for that sign.  I also remember personally seeing the documentation pertaining to said approval.  It is somewhere in storage at this time, and if I have to spend 50 hours finding it, I will be billing the City of Cape Coral for such expense.
            Secondly, that sign is not a advertisement sign, nor on the street.  It is entirely within our property and for the benefit of only our residents and visitors, and placed in the exact spot that was required by The City of Cape Coral.
            Somebody better do their homework before making false, erroneous, and rash accusation.
            We will now be including this issue in our upcoming Press Conference along with the numerous other complaints we have lodged.  Unfortunately, due to my having to return to California, the press conference is being postponed until late July or early August.
            It has come to a point where we can not operate our religious non profit programs needed due to the continuous discrimination and retaliation of the Code Enforcement Department and other Cape Coral Agencies, and the actions and costs caused by the City of Cape Coral.  Additionally, I personally am suffering from exhaustion from your actions, and can not attend to the necessary duties required of me at The Haven during my short visits to Cape Coral.  I am 70 years old and not in the best of health.  The recent trauma and problems created by the City of Cape Coral have made me sick where I feel like I'm going to have another stroke or a nervous breakdown.  If I do, this Entity will be holding you personally responsible.

            I am leaving for California on July 10, 2014 and will further address this, and other actions, upon my return in the future.

Jerome F. Valenta

CURRENT ABUSE OF AUTHORITY BY CAPE CORAL CODE ENFORCEMENT

Fast forward 3 years to May 2014 and we find the same abuse of authority, agents making false, rash, and unfounded accusations, and are unaccountable for their actions.  Identical to prior incidents, letters, notices and complaints are not responded to and are completely ignored.  There is still no supervision or control of personnel under their supervision or management.

RE: Case No. CE14-009373

Dear Mr. Cassidy,

            I am finally in receipt of your "NOTICE OF VIOLATION" dated 5/28/14 regarding the Convent/Rectory/Chapel Building located at 2307 SE 15th Place, Cape Coral FL 33990, over 3 weeks after your alleged inspection..
            Please be advised that we are in dispute of these alleged violation for numerous reasons, and will be challenging them accordingly.  Additionally, we, at The Haven of Divine Love are extremely conscientious about the health, welfare, and safety of all of our community, and if there was anything unsafe, it would immediately be taken care of.
            First of all, let's get one think straight up front.  A Mr. Michael Anagnos stole, cheated, and attempted to defraud The Haven of Divine Love, The Nelsen Residence Inc.  He was a volunteer who conducted himself, and continues to conduct himself in an unscrupulous, deceitful, and unlawful manner. When challenged, he attempted to coerce, extort, conspire, and blackmail The Congregation, it's Officers, Directors, and Clergy.  He then initiated a deliberate, malicious, and concerted effort to cause The Haven of Divine Love and all involved, irreparable harm.  His actions were deliberate, with malice and forethought.  He contacted every City of Cape Coral Agency in an attempt to cause such harm, and engaged your Department, your staff, and especially, the unknown inspector writing up this "NOTICE OF VIOLATION" to use your Power of Authority to get vengeance for his personal vendetta.  We at The Haven of Divine Love will not tolerate such actions, and will dispute such actions accordingly.
            When I first arrived in town on June 2, 2014, and found that your staff had blockaded the stairway leading up to the rectory with a rope and a sign stating that the stairway was unsafe, I contacted you personally to inquire as to what this was about.  You instructed me to contact a Mr. Mike Vandevtekom @ 239-707-5652.  I called him 3 times and left 3 messages, yet Mr. Vandevtekom failed or refused to call me back.  Then, over 3 weeks after your staff blockaded our stairway and prohibited its use, we finally received your "NOTICE OF VIOLATION"
            We, at The Haven of Divine Love, The Nelsen Residence Inc. are not going to be subjected to coercion, extortion, or blackmail by a Government Entity by a common criminal.  We are a private Religious Community (Convent) and this building is a private residence, Chapel, and Rectory for our clergy and community. For you, your Agency, or your staff to conduct yourself in such a manner is a serious infringement of our religious practice.  In fact, it is our understanding that your inspector, who refuses to name himself, was accompanied by Mr. Anagnos during his inspection, and jointly detailed and determined the various violations to be written up.  We also firmly believe that this action was a deliberate and intentional act in retaliation of past disputes and complaints logged against personnel of The Cape Coral Code Enforcement.  What other reason can be found to justify such blatant and ridiculous claims.  You have single handily assisted, conspired, and aided and abetted criminal activity against our congregation.
            Unfortunately, my brother Anthony, who lives in Oneonta NY, suffered a serious stroke and is currently paralyzed on his entire right side.  I spent 3 weeks in May in NY attending to his numerous needs, and will be leaving tomorrow at 6:00 A.M. to return to NY to continue to assist him.  My religion and family take priority over these current matters.  I do not currently have time to address these issues until I am able to return to Cape Coral at the latter part of June.  At that time additional correspondence and communication will commence.
            We have scheduled a Press Conference for all Local and some National media on Tuesday, July 1, 2014.  We feel that this issue and infringement is very important to disclose to the public, and not just the local residents.  We are a religious non profit entity that provides low cost housing for low income senior citizens and persons with limited abilities.  We perform a very needy and humanitarian service to the community.  Yet the continuous actions by various agencies of The City of Cape Coral have made it almost impossible to conduct our religious practice in a practical manner.  My sister, Eleanor Nelsen literally hated the City of Cape Coral for the last 20 years of her life, even after she spent 45 years (since 1966) educating thousands of Cape Coral children in her numerous schools and child care facilities.  Now, I fully understand her feelings. You may seek additional information about our religious organization at:

www.havenofdivinelove.net

            I have been a construction contractor for over 35 years, dealt with dozens of building and code enforcement agencies in my 70 years, and have never experience such vagrant abuse of authority in my life.  You in Cape Coral should be ashamed of yourselves.

Respectfully,

Jerome F. Valenta

RE: Case No. CE14-009375 & CE14-009458

Dear Gestapo Agent Cassidy and Kangaroo Court Magistrate Eskin,

            As previously noted, the above captioned names seems appropriate to the actions performed and perpetrated by each of you.  Personally, I feel that you are a disgrace and discredit to the City of Cape Coral.
            Your failure and refusal to supply a legible and decipherable copy of your FINDINGS OF FACT, CONCLUSION OF LAW, AND ORDER on the above referenced cases requested on November 3, 2014 is deployable.  Both of you have collectively denied us further due process of law and access to your Kangaroo Court proceedings. As such, we have been denied the ability to appeal said false findings as required.  We will therefore be filing formal Constitutional and Civil Right Violation claims in the Federal Courts.
            In addition, your deliberate attempt to thwart our attempted defenses against your false and conspired charges by scheduling a hearing when you both were aware that I had previously informed you that I would not be in the Cape Coral Florida area.  On September 4, 2014, I informed The City of Cape Coral Code Enforcement through Mr. Michael J. Van Deutekom that "I will be in the Cape Coral area from October 1, 2014 to October 10, 2014 and will be available any day except October 8, 2014 for your hearing.  Request is herein made that any meeting or hearing be postponed until then."  (Copy attached) Yet, you deliberately, with malice and forethought, scheduled a hearing when you were aware that I could not appear.
            We have numerous times notified you and disclosed to you that we have substantial documentation, testimony, and evidence that, although some repairs were necessary, the stairs in question were "STRUCTURALY SOUND" on May 14, 2014.  Any subsequent actions by us is a completely different matter.  However, as a direct result of the latter, and the subsequent actions by you, and the City Building Inspector Liegegott, who lied about his involvement, further substantial damages have incurred as a result.
The stairway as of today, is not the stairway of May 14, 2014, and any allegations to the contrary will result in additional claims against you or any person who so alleges.  Secondly, the conspiracy that exists between Mr. Anagnos and Mr. Liegegott will be addressed separately with the City Building Department.  However, their failure and refusal to respond to our letters of July 8, 2014 and August 15, 2014, (copies attached) has a strong indication of a conspiracy between you and that Department.  Secondly, any retaliation by the Building Department for filing complaint's against Mr. Liegegott will also be addressed separately, but entail your conspiracy.
            Your apparent conspiracy to commit fraud with a Mr. Michael H. Anagnos, who was recently released from prison for a violent crime involving a firearm, is consistent with his history of extortion, blackmail, and attempt to defraud numerous parties.  We will therefore be holding each of you, together with the City of Cape Coral, The City of Cape Coral Council, and all related parties, equally liable for all damages and losses incurred.
       Furthermore, it has recently been discovered that Mr. Michael Anagnos has at numerous occasions, represented to others, and fraudulently impersonated that he was me, Jerome F. Valenta, that he was "the owner of the property located at 2307 SE 15th Place, and that he was an authorized person of authority, including, but not limited to Mr. John Maher  of the City of Cape Coral Fire Department.    We have informed you numerous times in the past, AND HEREIN FORMALLY DO SO AGAIN, THAT MR. MICHAEL H. ANAGNOS WAS NOT, ME, NOR EVER WAS, AN OFFICER, DIRECTOR, OR ANY PERSON OF AUTHORITY OF THE HAVEN OF DIVINE LOVE, THE NELSEN RESIDENCE INC..   As a result, any acceptance of said false claims by you, or any member of the City of Cape Coral, will result in our holding each equally responsible and liable for said fraudulent insinuations and/or conclusions.
       Likewise, your false claim that a copy of the Magistrate's Hearing's transcripts could be obtained from the City Clerk's Office is just that, false.  They could only produce a transcript of a summary of the Hearings for October 16, 2014, and not a transcript of the proceeding of our cases.  Strangely, every case in front of the Magistrate that day was found "guilty."  Kind of reinforces our contentions of a "Kangaroo Court."
       Lastly,  In that I have already submitted to you various documents, I am enclosing a few more, specifically a copy of our complaint for theft of Corporate documents and records to the Cape Coral Police Department including "NOTES ON STOLEN DOCUMENTS, AND SHORT HISTORY; copy of letter from our attorney, Darren R. Inverso to Mr. Anagnos' attorney, Mr. Benjamin H. Yormak, pertaining to said thefts.  I do so because they will be pertinent documents that will be presented to the Court in our discrimination and Civil Rights violations against you, and I don't want you, or any member of the Cape Coral City Government to claim that they were not aware of the vast acts of extortion, blackmail and attempts to defraud that existed.  Your specific refusal and failure, along with the specific refusal and failure of the City of Cape Coral Police Department, Manager, Mayor, and Council, to properly investigate and act upon said extortion, blackmail, and attempts to defraud make each responsible and liable for the illegal acts perpetrated against us.
       I also enclose a copy of our Web Page so that you are fully aware of who and what we are and what we do, so that you can not plead ignorance to that fact.  We will not, nor ever will, permit or  tolerate extortion, blackmail, or attempts to defraud by Mr. Anagnos, or a conspiracy by you, as well as any religious persecution, bias, prejudice, and discrimination, and violations of our guaranteed Constitutional and Civil Rights  by the City of Cape Coral.  Your actions are despicable.  When a person, or Government entity such as yours, discriminates against, persecutes, retaliates, cheats, steals, or defrauds another individual, it is bad.   When a person, or Government entity such as yours, discriminates against, persecutes, retaliates, cheats, steals, or defrauds a friend or relative, it is deplorable.  But,  When a person, or Government entity such as yours, discriminates against, persecutes, retaliates, cheats, steals, or defrauds a Church or religious Entity such as ours, it is the epitome of  disgust since in reality it discriminates against, persecutes, retaliates, cheats, steals, or defrauds God himself.  So get ready for a lot of litigation and press coverage of the acts so perpetrated.
       In addition, and in fair warning to all, please be fully advised that I, Jerome F. Valenta, as a direct result of the stressful action perpetrated against both me, and The Nelsen Residence Inc. in totality, is currently under Doctors care and extended watch.  I have notified 33 separate relatives, friends, and associates of my medical condition, and in the event that any stroke, heart attack, or nervous breakdown occur, they have pledged that corrective action will commence.

RE: Case No. CE14-009375 & CE14-009458

Dear Mr. Cassidy and Special Magistrate Eskin,

             As previously noticed you, I have a conflicting Court appearance in Tampa Florida.  I attempted to reschedule said Court appearance in Tampa, but was unsuccessful.  Therefore, request is herein made for a rescheduling of the hearings on the above noted cases.
            In the event that the Cape Coral Code Enforcement, and/or the Special Magistrate elect to Deny us our Due Process of Law and hold said hearing without us, please insert the following information so that appropriate appeals can be made.

1.)        We have documentation, witnesses, and testimony proving that said claims are the product of collusion, conspiracy, aiding and abetting the perpetration of an attempted fraud by a Michael Anagnos against The Nelsen Residence Inc. and by the investigators, Marilyn Buck and Mike VanDeutekom as to case No. CE14-009375.

2.)        We have documentation, witnesses, and testimony proving that said claims are the product of bias, prejudice and discrimination by personnel of The Cape Coral Code Enforcement as to cases CE14-009375 & CE14-009458.
 
3.)        We have documentation, witnesses, and testimony that said case No. CE14-009458 is the product of intentional retaliation by Investigator Marilyn Buck for filing appropriate previous complaints against her.

4.)        We have documentation, witnesses, and testimony proving that our stairway was structurally sound and was capable of supporting all imposed loads, and that any rot of trim boards did not create a condition of an unsound stairway.

5.)        We have documentation, witnesses, and testimony proving that all permits were obtained as to claims of CE14-009458.  If the City of Cape Coral Code Enforcement and/or Building Department are so dysfunctional, mismanages, and incompetent that they can not locate said permit, it is indicative of serious erroneous and false charges alleged against us.  Furthermore, said actions indicate additional bias, prejudice and discrimination by certain personnel against The Nelsen Residence Inc.

            As to our previous request to provide to me prior to any hearing, copies of all City of Cape Coral ordinances in which you claim to exist that allow City of Cape Coral inspectors to enter private religious RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY and dictate the conditions cited on Ms. Marilyn Buck's report, please be advised that we have not as yet received said request.  Failure to provide said information seriously denies our ability to defend ourselves accordingly, and is a serious violation of our Due Process rights. We intend to challenge the validity of any such ordinances that violate both State and Federal Constitutional guarantees.

            Finally, we herein submit all correspondences made to The Cape Coral Code Enforcement and Special Magistrate Eskin during the past 5 years which are in the possession of both Mr. Frank Cassidy and Harold S. Eskin as evidence of the bias, prejudice, and discrimination inflicted against us..

Respectfully,

Jerome F. Valenta
President

                                              Chronological History of Michael Harwood Anagnos


On February 5, 2003.  Mr. Michael Anagnos was arrested and charged with second degree assault and firearm violations in the State of Washington. He was arrested on October 23, 2005 for Obstruct Law Enforcement Officer; Arrested on June 28, 2007 for Bail Jumping;  Arrested on October 10, 2007 for unspecified charges.

On March 25, 2003.    Mr. Anagnos filed a false and unfounded claim for workers compensation alleging that he sustained a back injury while being employed.  He was terminated from his employment as a transportation security screener with the Department of Homeland Security as a result of his arrest. 

On March 23, 2005 and on March 10, 2006, the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs decision denied his unfounded claims.  On July 27, 2006, The United States Department of Labor Employees' Compensation Appeals Board, DOCKET NO. 06-1031, rendered a DECISION AND ORDER affirming the lower Court's ruling.

January 16, 2009         Michael Anagnos files lawsuit, Addleman et al v. State of Washington et al Case No. 2:2009mc00006.  (Against the State of Washington, Department of Corrections, and numerous parties)

June 28, 2009  Michael Anagnos writes letter to Judge James L. Roberts in regards to his lawsuit, Addleman et al v. State of Washington et al, Case No. 2:2009-mc-00006 claiming to be both physically and mentally disabled, but only certified by the Social Security as having a Bi-Polar disorder.  States that on 2 occasions he was accused of being a child rapist causing him to get many death threats and ultimately on March 23, 2009 was attacked by 3 men who knocked him on the floor and continued to kick and stomp his head and face.

 May 27, 2011.           Michael Anagnos, appearing in a wheelchair and claiming to be physically disabled. filed an application for residency at The Haven of Divine Love Senior and Disability Center located at 2315 SE 15th PL, Cape Coral Florida.

 June 1, 2011.   Accepted under the Haven's disability requirement, Michael Anagnos became a resident of The Haven of Divine Love, and moved into unit #14. **

September 7, 2011.       Questions arose as to Mr. Anagnos' character and disability after background check revealed that he had 1.) Been recently accused by his elderly father, Nicholas Anagnos, of physical and mental abuse and prior assault resulting the father receiving a "black eye, split and swollen lip."  (Case No. 11-000897DR C, filed May 9, 2011, approximately 2 weeks prior to his application for residency)  2.)       He was released from Washington State Prison in 2010 after being convicted and serving a sentence for a violent felony with the use of a gun. 3.)  Was found to have falsely claimed that he was injured and/or disabled as a result of an incident claimed to have occurred when he was being terminated from his employment with the U S Department of Homeland Security. The DECISION AND ORDER dated July 27, 2006 by the United States Department of Labor Employees' Compensation Appeals Board, Docket No. 06-1031.  (although not known in September 2011, in Feb. 2012, Anagnos' filed a lawsuit against his father claiming physical injuries sustained by assaults and beatings from his father that he was claiming to be disabled on May 27, 2011 when he applied for residency at The Haven)

September 28, 2011, after determining that Michael Anagnos was in fact not physically disabled as claimed; that he had a violent past and would be a safety and security risk to the other residents of The Haven, The Nelsen Residence Inc. informed him that they no long wished for him to be a resident at The Haven of Divine Love Facility and terminated his tenancy effective December 1, 2011, giving him approximately 60 days to find alterative housing.

During the months of October and November 2011, Mr. Anagnos continually stated that he had no place to go; that he was living at a Motel 6 prior to finding our facility; that his father and most of his family had disowned him and did not want him around; and that he was new to Florida and had no friends or other family.  He stated that he could be of some help to us; that he was handy and was willing to do volunteer work around the complex if we allowed him to stay.  He stated that he would like to become a part of our community.  He then began helping around the property on his own initiative in an effort to show us his sincerity.  Facing the act of kicking him out and making him homeless, which was contrary to our religious practices, The Board of Directors relinquished its termination.  However, due to concerns of the safety and security of the other residents at The Haven, due to his violent past, it was decided that he could not reside at the Senior and Disability facility, and would allow him to live in the first floor bedroom at the residence building next door.

December 1, 2011       Mr. Michael Anagnos joined the religious community of The Nelsen Residence Inc. and moved into the first floor bedrooms of the residence located at 2307 SE 15th PL.

February 6, 2012         Michael Anagnos filed a lawsuit against his elderly father claiming the father's  refusal to pay him an implied inheritance, other money damages, and filed 2 Counts of Battery, claiming his 85 year old father "willfully and maliciously assaulted and beat" him, (April24,2011 and May 5, 2011) resulting in pain and suffering, disability, and mental anguish."  (It was this event that Michael Anagnos attempted to claim he was physically disabled from his beating from his father upon applying for residency at The Haven of May 27, 2011)

From December 1, 2011 through August 1, 2013, Michael Anagnos lived at the residence rent free and performed odd jobs assisting with the ordinary chores.  Although he was anti-social, didn't get along with most of the residents of The Haven, never attended any of the dinners, Bar-B-Q's, pizza parties or other social events, he mostly stayed to himself and caused little or no problems.

In August 2013, Mr. Valenta, the President of The Nelsen Residence Inc.,     suffered a stroke while in New York assisting his brother Anthony, partially paralyzing him on his entire left side of his body. After returning to Florida in the latter part of August, Mr. Valenta was limited and restricted in his activities for the next month.

February 16, 2014       Spiritual Director Gladys Monji passed away.  Thereafter, Michael Anagnos made numerous insinuations that he should be appointed as a replacement Director, but his requests were rejected.  Although we included Anagnos in our community and he assisted with various chores around the complex, he never participated in any of the social functions or religious services or practices.  He claimed to be an atheist, hated God, Jesus Christ, and any form of religious practices, and his desire to be a Director of a Religious Entity would be contradicting to such beliefs.

March 12, 2014           The Nelsen Residence Inc. purchased a new Hyundai Sonata, and traded in the old 2009 Hyundai Sonata.  This apparently made Michael Anagnos extremely angry because he somehow thought that he was going to be given the old car after his repeated requests that we provide him a car.

April 1, 2014. Wilfred A. Rodriquez and Sarah A. Rodriquez were nominated and elected as Deacon and Deaconess "Spiritual Directors" to replace Gladys Monji

 April 1, 2014. Joseph Valenta was nominated and elected as Vice president and Director replacing retiring Director Knox.

 Around April 10 through April 15, 2014.  Mr. Michael Anagnos stated to resident Mickey Stegar that he was “going to fall down the stairs and sue this place for everything they got.”

 On Saturday, April 26, 2014, at approximately 11:15 A.M., Mr. Michael Anagnos came into the office of The Haven and met with President Jerome Valenta.  He was very upset and agitated.  He started to complain about how we were treating him.  He was visibly upset about our refusing to appoint him as a Director and not giving him a vehicle to drive.  He claimed that we disrespected him and was taking advantage of him and that he was going to disclose to everyone about Mr. Valenta's past and all the "bullshit that goes around here."  He then made the statement that if we paid him $25,000.00, he "would go away."  Later on, after he retained attorney Benjamin Yormak, he attempted to claim that his demand for money was for "wages."  However, it was clear that his demand was an attempt to blackmail for not disclosing Mr. Valenta's past and numerous claims that Mr. Valenta was illegally operating the non-profit corporation.

 On April 26, 2014, Mr. Joseph Valenta, the Vice President, was contacted and informed of Mr. Anagnos' blackmail attempt.  Mr. Joseph Valenta made arrangements and flew to Cape Coral on May 4, 2014.  On May 7, 2014, both Jerome and Joseph Valenta left for New York to tend to Mr. Anthony Valenta, Jerome's brother and Joseph's father, who had previously suffered a stroke and was in need of assistance.  Due to the personal problems, the matter could not be taken care of until Mr. Jerome Valenta's return to Cape Coral on May 30, 2014.

 On May 10, 2014.       Mr. Anagnos filed a Tax-Exempt Organization Complaint (Referral) Form with the Internal Revenue Service falsely claiming that Directors/Officers/Persons are using income/assets for personal gain; that income/assets are being used to support illegal or terrorist activities; that the President of this Corporation is using Corporate monies and properties for personal gains and use; That Mr. Valenta is taking money from The Nelsen Corp and putting these funds into another non profit California Corp. named Extend A Hand For Justice, of which is a front and used 100% for his personal gains; That Mr. Valenta is using Corporate vehicles and monies to drive between California and Florida as to evade local and State sex offender registration laws;  NOTE: A THOUROUGH INVESTIGATION AND AUDIT WAS MADE BY THE INTERNAL REVENUE.  WITH THE EXCEPTION OF FINDING THAT THE NELSEN RESIDENCE INC. FAILED TO FILE APPROPRIATE FORM 1099 FOR MISC. INCOME FOR MICHAEL ANAGNOS, NELSEN WAS GIVEN A CLEAN BILL. ADDITIONALLY, THE IRS CORRECTED THE CLASSIFICATION OF THE NELSEN TO A CHURCH.

May 10, 2014.             Mr. Anagnos filed a false complaint with the Florida Attorney General claiming numerous unfounded corporate fraud and theft.

Around May 10, 2014.            Contacted attorney Benjamin Yormak, who on June 3, 2014, demanded by letter the payment of $36,112.40 for wages claims plus $1,850.00 in attorney fees. (Letter was not received until June 29, 2014); and subsequently on June 14, 2014 (before we even received his June 3, 2014 letter) filed false and erroneous litigation in the U.S. District Court, Case No. 2:14-CV-350-FTM-38DNF. (This is very similar to his false claims for back injuries and Workers' Compensation benefits Mr. Anagnos filed after being terminated from his Homeland Security job for being arrested, and charged with second degree assault and firearm violations in 2003.)

 On May 14, 2014.       In conjunction with his attempt to defraud by "I'm going to fall down the stairs and sue this place for everything they got," contacted the Cape Coral Code Enforcement and filed a complaint claiming that the stairs were structurally unsound and should be condemned; falsely claiming that he was the "property manager;" which was entirely false and untrue;  that there were illegal chemical and pesticides in the garage; that the property was not a hotel/motel and was not in compliance; Conspired with Code Enforcement agents, Marilyn Buck and Mike VanDeutekom, in conjunction with Mr. Frank Cassidy, to cite false and misleading infractions, several of which were directly and personally caused by Mr. Anagnos himself, or were initiated in an attempt to defraud;  Erroneously claiming that the dwelling located at 2307 SE 15th Place was a "commercial" property and not a residential property.  At no time did any employee, officer, or agent of the Cape Coral Code
Enforcement ever contacts any Officer, Director of authorized person of authority of The Nelsen Residence Inc. during their claimed examination and investigation.  All activities were conducted in secret between Mr. Anagnos and the Code Enforcement Agents.

 Approximately May 29, 2014, Mickey Stegar, a resident residing in Unit #1, inform The Nelsen that Michael Anagnos had made numerous statements sometime between April 10, 2014 and April 15, 2014, including that he was "going to fall down the stairs and sue this place for everything they go."  Mr. Stegar signed a Declaration to those statements on June 6, 2014.

Approximately May 29, 2014, Spiritual Director Sara Rodriquez informed The Board of Directors that several times during the month of May 2014, Michael Anagnos made numerous claims and statements pertaining to the operations of The Nelsen Residence Inc. and The Haven of Divine Love Facility.  Ms. Rodriquez signed a Declaration of those statements and claims on June 6, 2014.

 Approximately May 29, 2014, Reverend Fred Large, a participating Minister at The Haven, informed The Board of Directors that on May 18, 2014, Michael Anagnos made numerous statements to him including that;  "I am going to destroy him (meaning Jerome Valenta) and the Residents of the Divine Love, no matter what it takes.  I am going to take him down by all means possible.  I am going to take him down."   Reverend Large signed a Declaration to those statements on September 4, 2014.

On May 29, 2014, upon Mr. Valenta arrived back to Florida, Kwan Chan was visibly upset, emotional, and despondent pertaining to an incident that occurred while he was gone with Michael Anagnos.  She informed Mr. Valenta that Michael Anagnos has entered the house (at 4424 N Atlantic Circle, North Fort Myers, FL) unannounced through the back sliding door and confronted her in the living room.  He did not ring the front door bell nor knock before he entered.  Kwan Chan indicated that Michael Anagnos had acted inappropriately, made some kind of sexual advances she was ashamed of, and proceeded to tell her that "Jerry was no good, was a child rapist, and a very dishonest man."  She stated that Michael wanted her to move with him to Arizona where he had a ranch, and she could plant all the trees she wanted.  (Kwan was very upset and much of what she was attempting to say was not understood at the time)  On May 30, 2014,  Jerome Valenta, went to the Lee County Sheriff's Office on Six Mile Cypress in Fort Myers, and spoke with the desk officer about Kwan Chan's information.  The female desk officer, her name unknown, stated that such a claim is difficult to prove or prosecute; that it was more of a he said-she said situation; and she recommended that Mr.Valenta attempt to obtain more information and or some corroborating witnesses

During the month of May 2014, Michael Anagnos contacted numerous parties including, but not limited to Robert and Judy Minahan, the father and mother of Resident Peter Minahan;  Mr. and Mrs. Donald prink, the brother and sister in law of Resident Keith Prink; Ricardo and Denise Lopez; Mickey Stegar;  Charles Hogan;  John Jarabek; Lisa Marie Bailey (Claussen);  Kevin Conklin;  Salvatore Carsi;  Sharon Sargent;  Keith Otey; James Nutt;  John Heckschler;  Michael Reinbold;  Keith Prink;  Edna Cannavale; Mario Marroquin; and Reverend Fred Large;  and made numerous derogatory, disparaging, and defamatory statements, insinuations, and innuendoes about The Haven of Divine Love, The Nelsen Residence Inc., and any some of the Officers and Directors, including Jerome Valenta, in which he disclosed his personal sex offense past, including showing them pictures of the Internet Sex Offender Registration Flyer.

During the month of May, while Mr. Valenta was in New York tending his brother Anthony's situation, it appears that Michael entered the Offices of The Nelsen Residence Inc. and made over 100 photocopies of Corporate documents.  (Although it was suspected that an unauthorized party illegally entered the office on or around July 8, 2014, it was not learned until December 2014 that Michael Anagnos and his attorney, Benjamin Yormak were in possession of 190 corporate documents when they submitted the document to Nelsen Residence attorney Darrell Inverso.  82 of the 190 documents produced were stolen from The Nelsen's  corporate files without their knowledge. 69 of the 82 stolen documents were stolen from their Corporate Office files located at 2315 SE 15th place, Cape Coral, FL 33990, of which 7 of the 69 documents were stolen documents dated after 5-31-2014.  (See letters dated July 10, and December 8, 2014 and  to Chief of police Bart Connelly)

On June 1, 2014, The Nelsen Residence Inc. notified Michael Anagnos that they no longer wished for him to be a volunteer, and notified him that he was not allowed on the property located at 2315 SE 15th Place, The Haven of Divine Love Facility.

June 2, 2014, after disobeying notification to not come on the Haven property, and after causing disturbances and dissentions, Mr. Anagnos was cited for trespassing by the Cape Coral Police Department, and told not to return.

On June 4, 2014.         Filed a false, misleading, erroneous, and untrue Petition for Protection Against Stalking, stating falsely that:  "On June 1, 2014, Mr. Valenta served me various papers in retaliation." "On June 2, 2014, Mr. Valenta continued to yell and use foul language;"  Posted door demanding more rent than owed;"  "On June 3, 2014, Mr. Valenta yelled, screamed, and called me a fucking piece of shit as I spoke with Donald Prynk;"  "Mr. Valenta then turned to Donald Prink telling him that if continued to speak with that fucking lieing (sic) piece of shit that he would be listed in a deformation/slander and other legal terms;"  Mr. Anagnos' Petition was denied in its entirety, stating "Petitioner has failed to allege facts sufficient to support the entry of an injunction for protection."

Sometime in June 2014.          Made an anonymous telephone call with caller ID 2392716395 stating that Mr. Valenta was failing to register or notify the Sheriff that he was visiting the Cape Coral area. (See document #'s 25-26- Joseph Valenta letter to CC Police Chief Connelly)

June 6, 2014, The Nelsen Residence Inc. gave Michael Anagnos a 30 day notice terminating any implied rental  On July 6, 2014, Michael Anagnos refused to vacate his room and appropriate eviction process was initiated.

From June 1, 2014 through August 15, 2014, the date of eviction, Michael Anagnos was continuously disruptive, combative, and filed numerous false complaints with various agencies

On June 3, 2014.         Attorney Benjamin Yormak, representing Michael Anagnos, sent a letter (which was not received until June 30, 2014) demanding the payment of wages in the amount of $36,112.40 and $1,850.00 in Attorney fees.

On June 7, 2014.         Mr. Anagnos filed a false and erroneous complaint and Application for Compensation for Tax Information with the State of Florida Department of revenue, falsely claiming that he was a "manager" from 6-01-11 through 5-31-14; falsely claimed that Corporate purchases were for personal use; that personal electronic and various household items that are kept at 327 18th Street, Bakersfield, CA; falsely claiming that personal electronics and various household items, along with multitudes of dining-entertainment and other items are kept at North Atlantic Cir., N. Fort Myers, FL; that he knows all this to be true as he worked as a volunteer for the Nelsen Residence Inc. from 6-01-11 until he discovered all the illegal going on.  (See documents #'s 105 through 110)  NOTE: A THOUROUGH AUDIT WAS CONDUCTED BY THE STATE OF FLORIDA OF ALL PURCHASES MADE, AND FOUND NO DISCREPENCIES.  THEY ISSUED A NEW EXEMPTION CIRTIFICATE ON MAY 13, 2015.

On June 10, 2014.       Michael Anagnos calls Cape Coral Building Department inspector, Kent Liebegott and falsely claims that someone at The Nelsen Residence Inc. is building a stairway at 2307 SE 15th Place without a permit.  Inspector Liebegott arrives at the residence, and after discussing with Mr. Anagnos, posts a STOP WORK IMMEDIATELY poster on the building prohibiting The Nelsen from doing the minor repairs needed on the stairway.


 On June 25, 2014.       Michael Anagnos filed a Complaint in the US District Court, Case # 2:14-cv-350, falsely alleging that The Nelsen Residence Inc. was a “RESIDENTIAL CARE FCILITY” and was required to pay him wages for his volunteer work.  On January 23, 2015, Anagnos filed an Amended Complaint under Florida wage laws.  The Nelsen Residence Inc., DBA The Haven of Divine Love was not, nor ever was a “RESIDENTIAL CARE FACILITY” and Anagnos’ attorney, Benjamin Yormak was dutifully informed of that by both State and Local Agencies.

 On July 7, 2014, The Nelsen Residence Inc. filed a criminal complaint against Michael Anagnos for his extortion, blackmail, and attempts to defraud.  (Case # 14010948)  The Cape Coral Police Department stated that extortion, blackmail, and attempts to defraud were "civil matters, and not criminal matters."

On July 12, 2014.        Mr. Anagnos filed a false and erroneous police report, No. 14-011223, claiming falsely and known to be untrue that Mr. Valenta said, "smile for the camera asshole this will be your last picture."  Mr. Anagnos also stated that he was "attempting to file an injunction against Valenta," which was filed in his unlawful detainee and eviction case, No. 14-CC-003184, which was found to be baseless and unfounded. On August 15, 2014, the Court issued a Final Judgment of Eviction and Writ of Possession against Mr. Anagnos, and he was official evicted from the premises.

On or around July 21, 2014.    Mr. Anagnos and Mrs. Edna Cannavale contacted a known gang member, Mr. Manual Sanchez, at his place of business, and attempted to persuade Mr. Sanchez to inflict bodily harm to Mr. Valenta. (See document #'s 22-23 letter to CC Police Chief Connelly; and #24 letter to Lee County sheriff)

On July 30, 2014, Mr. Anagnos was suspected in tampering with The Haven's fire sprinkler system by turning on the control valve located at the south side of our Senior and Disability Center located at 2315 SE 15th Place.  Although a formal complaint was made on August 1, 2014, no investigation was made by the Cape Coral Police Department.

 On August 2, 2014, Michael Anagnos went to unit #1, the residence of witness Mickey Stegar,  at 2315 SE 15th Place, 2 times between 4:30 and 6:30 A.M. and was banging on his door attempting to confront him about his being a witness against him.  On August 3, 2014, upon learning of the incident, Nelsen filed a complaint with the CCPD, and on August 4, 2014, a formal letter of complaint was lodged with Chief of Police Bart Connelly.

 On August 11, 2014, The Nelsen filed a formal criminal complaint against Michael Anagnos with the Cape Coral Police Department for violations of Sec. 871.01, disturbing religious assemblies.  The CCPD did not investigate or act upon the complaint.

On August 15, 2014.    A Writ of Possession was issued by the Court, and Mr. Michael Anagnos was evicted from the residence.
 

On August 18, 2014    Mr. Michael Anagnos instigated, initiated, and colluded with Edna R. Cannavale to file a false and unfounded “Petition for Repeat Violence” against Jerome F. Valenta, Case #14-031580DR U, specifically falsely stating “On 7, at August 10, Mr. Valenta-has sent letter to my house and has told people I am threating him.  He has stated in writign that he track me through the US postal office after I refused to give him my address he states that he house watched my house continually in the letter.”  Mr. Valenta was never notified of said filing, and the Court dismissed the Petition “for failure to allege facts sufficient to support an injunction for protection.”  Jerome Valenta did not learn of this filing until April 7, 2017.


On October 16, 2014.  A hearing by the City of Cape Coral Code Enforcement was held not in the presence of The Nelsen Residence Inc.  Michael Anagnos testified under oath, making numerous false and untrue statements.  The City has continuously refused to provide a copy of an audio or transcript of the testimony.

 December 1, 2014.      Received discovery from Attorney Darren R. Inverso, on behalf of Michael Anagnos, containing 190 documents.  The Discovery documents were received by Nelsen’s Attorney Inverso three months prior and was not disclosed to Nelsen until December.  Upon examination, it was found that a large amount of documents were illegally obtained from both the corporate office and the personal residence.

December 5, 2014.  Attorney Inverso notified Attorney Yormak of their possession of stolen documents.

On December 10, 2014.          The Nelsen Residence Inc.  Noticed Attorney Inverso of their failure to properly represent Nelsen against the actions of Anagnos.

December 13, 2014.    The Nelsen Residence Inc. filed a criminal complaint against Mr. Anagnos with Chief of Police Bart Connelly for the possession of stolen documents.  Out of 25 separate correspondences made personally to Cape Coral Chief of Police Bart Connelly, not ONE was ever responded to, acted upon, or addressed.

On January 5, 2015.    Michael Anagnos called the City of Cape Coral and left a telephone message making numerous false claims.

On February 19, 2015,   Michael Anagnos instigated, initiated and colluded with Mario Marroquin to file a false claim for damages, Case #15-SC-000910, against Jerome Valenta.  The case was dismissed by the Court as being unfounded.


On April 2, 2015,   Michael Anagnos instigated, initiated, and colluded with Mario Marroquin’s filing a false claim of “Cyberstalking” against Jerome Valenta, Case #15-DR-030697, making numerous incoherent statements that were indecipherable.  Mr. Marroquin did state that “somebody throw a brick to my Window glass. Is Possible Valenta sent a Person to vandalize it is Pattern to revenge Persons. Case CFS#15-129868 (LCSO).  Mr. Marroquin referenced that his claim for stalking was related to stalking of Michael Harwood Anagnos, Case # 14-031078DRU; and stalking of Edna Cannavale, Case # 14-DR-031580  Mr. Valenta was never notified of said filing, and the Court dismissed the Petition “for failure to allege facts sufficient to support an injunction for protection.”  Jerome Valenta did not learn of this filing until April 7, 2017


 During the latter half of 2014 through July 2016, Michael Anagnos continued to contact numerous parties of The City of Cape Coral and local media, (Wink News, TV 2 and 7 etc.) making numerous erroneous, false and untrue statements in which he knew or should have known were false.

On September 24, 2015   Mr. Michael Anagnos instigated, initiated, and assisted Mario Marroquin in filing an Appeal after the Court dismissed his false and incoherent claims against The Nelsen Residence Inc., Case #15-AP-000031


On October 14, 2015.  Michael Anagnos E-mailed the Assistant City Attorney, Steven D. Griffin, making numerous false claims pertaining to a Zoning Issue that he knew or should have known were untrue.  He stated that he “personally delivered said notice directly to Valenta..” a notice that was determined to not have ever even been sent.

On September 7, 2016, a Jury trial commenced on the Labor Case # 2:14-cv-350.  During testimony under oath, Anagnos made over 20 false, erroneous, or untrue statements, claiming numerous acts which never happened which he knew, or should have known to be false.

On September 14, 2016.          The Jury unanimously found that The Nelsen Residence Inc. WAS NOT A RESIDENTIAL CARE FACILITY and not subject to paying Michael Anagnos wages for his volunteer work.

           The above demonstrates the majority of the actions of Michael Anagnos’ deliberate attempt to destroy and cause economic damages to The Nelsen Residence Inc. and specifically its President Jerome F. Valenta.

                                                                                     ABOUT MICHAEL HARWOOD ANAGNOS

            Michael Anagnos is a convicted felon of violent crimes, and has a history of extortion, blackmail, and attempts to defraud.  His continuous lies and perjury under oath are enormous.  His intent to “destroy him and the Residents of Divine Love, no matter what it takes” has been fulfilled.  32 senior and disability residents lost some or all of their respective subsidies, and 82 low income students lost their respective Scholarship grants.  The Nelsen Residence Inc suffered tens of thousands of dollars in damages.

** MICHAEL WAS A "RESIDENT" AND PAID RENT AT THE HAVEN OF DIVINE LOVE FROM JUNE 1, 2011 THROUGH NOVEMBER 30, 2011.  IN SEPTEMBER, THE NELSEN RESIDENCE INC. TOLD HIM HE HAD TO LEAVE AFTER THEY DID A BACKGROUND CHECK ON HIM AND FOUND THAT HE WAS NOT DISABLED AS HE CLAIMED, HE HAD FALSIFIED HIS APPLICATION, AND  HAD A VIOLENT HISTORY, AND THEREFORE COULD NOT BE A RESIDENT OF THE HAVEN.    AFTER MANY DISCUSSIONS, CLAIMING THAT HE HAD NO PLACE TO GO, THAT HE HAD NO FAMILY TO HELP HIM, THE NELSEN RESIDENCE INC. OFFERRED TO LET HIM LIVE IN ONE OF THE BEDROOMS OF THE HOUSE (2307) UNDER THE CONDITION THAT HE WOULD HELP OUT, CONTRIBUTE TO THE HOUSEHOLD, AND BE PART OF THE RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY.  (UNFORTUNATELY, IT WASN’T KNOWN AT THE TIME THAT MR. ANAGNOS WAS A DEVOUT ATHIEST WHO HATED GOD, JESUS CHRIST, AND ALL RELIGIOUS ENTITIES)  THE NELSEN RESIDENCE INC. TOOK HIM INTO THEIR COMMUNITY, TREATED HIM LIKE A FAMILY MEMBER, AND EVENTUALLY, MR. VALENTA TREATED HIM LIKE A SON.  FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF, THINGS WERE OK.  AFTER MR. VALENTA’S STROKE IN AUGUST 2013, THINGS BEGAN TO CHANGE.  MR. ANAGNOS APPARENTLY THOUGHT THAT MR. VALENTA WAS GOING TO BE OUT OF THE PICTURE, AND HE COULD TAKE OVER.  IT ALSO APPEARED THAT HE THOUGHT THAT BECAUSE OF HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH MR VALENTA, HE WOULD BE THE SOME KIND OF "HEIR" TO MR. VALENTA’S PROPERTY AFTER HE WENT.  MR. ANAGNOS DIDN’T UNDERSTAND THAT MR. VALENTA WAS INDIGENT, AND THE PROPERTY BELONGED TO A NON-PROFIT CORPORATION, AND NOT MR. VALENTA.



                                      Declaration of Sara Rodriquez

           I, Sara Rodriquez, herein declare the following:

      I am a Community Member and Minister of The Nelsen Residence Inc. living at The Nelsen Residence located 2307 S.E. 15th Place, Cape Coral, Florida 33990.  I have knowledge of the facts attested to herein, and if called upon to testify, I could and would competently testify thereto.

      My husband, Anthony, and I have been Community Members and lived at The Nelsen Residence facility for about two years now.  As soon as we moved in, we have tried to be a positive example of The Community and in unity to and for the Residents of The Senior and Disability Center next door at 2315 S.E. 15th place.  In doing so, my husband Anthony, who is the Community Chaplin, (Deacon) and I have been available and have had access to the onsite Chapel of Divine Love that is in our dwelling.  Since the first day that the Chapel was utilized for prayer and Bible studies for the Center's Residents, Mr. Michael Anagnos was very verbal and emotional about showing his negativity regarding the use of the Chapel and "the religious crap" that was now taking place at the Center.  He many times let us be known, to whomever would listen, that he was not OK with the fact that services were being conducted, and that he was a "Buddhist" and didn't even like people. (that's really funny since Buddhists teach and follow the teachings that everyone should be gentile and loving to all creatures and mankind)  When Pastor Fred Large came on board in April, 2014, Mr. Anagnos went out of his way to let me and my husband know that we were slowly being replaced because Mr. Valenta, The Nelsen Residence Inc. President, was that kind of sneaky person.  Mr. Anagnos, in a very deranged way, was always trying to turn everybody against each other in a way to divide and conquer.

      Although Mr. Anagnos resided at the Residence below us, we rarely spoke with him because of his grumpy demeanor and his distaste for religion. Although he was suppose to be the Residence maintenance volunteer, and received a free apartment to live in, I rarely saw him doing any meaningful work around the properties.  In fact, the only time he did anything was when Mr. Valenta was in town and he assisted him in various chores.  When Mr. Valenta was not here, he spent most of his time working on his garden across the street on our lot located at 2306 S.E. 15th Place, or in his apartment watching TV and working on his computer.  When other residents needed something, he was always rude to them and constantly complained about them and what he had to do, almost like they were bothering him.

      On one occasion in early May, 2014, when our cable was out, (as I understand it, he has the main cable box in his unit and could turn it on or off at any time) he came up to our unit via the stairs leading to our unit on the second floor and was working on our TV set and manual remote control.  He said he would be right back, left, and came back in 5 or 6 minutes later.  He was working with the TV when it flicked back on.  We thanked him and asked him what had been wrong, and he said "Anthony must have pressed the wrong button on the remote."  He then said "you need to be careful with those steps on the stairs because you can easily hurt yourself since they don't look safe, and someone could get hurt.  We assured him that we used the stairs each day and didn't feel they were unsafe.  He responded "they are old, and Jerry (meaning the Residence's President Jerome Valenta) should do something to fix them.  He left right after that comment, and thought nothing more about what he said until we heard that he had told several people that he was "going to fall down the stairs and sue them for everything they got,"  Then we fully understood that Mr. Anagnos was going to attempt to defraud The Haven of Divine Love for his personal gains.  It was almost like he was always planning to do something that he could make money on. (he was always bragging about how much money he was making day trading the stock market, and buying real estate)

      Regardless, since Mr. Anagnos's comments about the stairs, every time we went down and up, which was 5 or 6 times a day, we bounced on each of the stairs.  Every stair step was very solid and there was no evidence that any step was unsafe, broken, or falling down, and were confused as to why he would say such things.

      Other times Mr. Anagnos seemed angry and discontent with the work he had to do around the property.  He was loud and vocal with his comments about Mr. Valenta and his family, and how he thought it wasn't fair that he didn't get to "travel" like Jerry did.  One day when I drove into my parking spot, Mr. Anagnos was standing there with some papers in his hand.  He asked me to take a look at Jerry's criminal history and said "that's the kind of person you are dealing with."  he then said he "had an accident on the stairs and that his heal had gone through one of the rotten stairs, and he was hurt."  When I went up the stairs, I could not see any broken or rotten stair that his heal could have gone through.

      At this point, feeling that Mr. Anagnos was a very conniving  and distrustful person, I was advised by my husband to stay away as much as possible from Mr. Anagnos because he didn't seem stable and seemed to be bent on causing trouble.

      Although our relationship with Mr. Anagnos was never good, our relationship seemed to have gotten worse when he found out though Community notices that my husband and I had been placed on the Board of Directors of The Nelsen Residence Inc., and we were now serving as the deacon and deaconess of the Chapel.  (I heard that he had made demands in the past that he be made a Director because he was watching the place while Jerry was gone) He started saying to anyone who would listen that that was only to make himself (Mr. Valenta) look better.  When Mr. Valenta was expected to be back in July, 2014, his statements to me in late June was that he was working on getting Jerry picked up by the police for court violations and said to a group of us outside, "don't be surprised if this place is closed down soon."  That statement right there had been the most damaging since it sent many of the disability Residents into panic about having to move from the Center. My husband and I saw and heard many Residents, especially those with mental disabilities, state how afraid they were of having to leave when we were handing out food donations to them.

      Because of the turmoil and disruption Mr. Anagnos was causing during the months of April and May, 2014, the Board of Directors decided to terminate Mr. Anagnos's residency, and on June 6, 2014, Mr. Valenta gave him his required 30 day notice to terminate.  After that, Mr. Anagnos became more vocal and vicious, to a point were he seemed dangerous and violent.  He started to try to get as many people to side with him and turn against Mr. Valenta and The Haven of Divine Love in it's entirety. As a result, the Community banned him from being on the property of the Haven of Divine Love at 2315 S.E. 15th Place, and even had to cite him for trespassing because he continued to go there and cause disruption amongst the Residents. When Mr. Anagnos was banned from the Haven at 2315, where he did most of his speeches and rants about how he was so unhappy to be in a phony, religious living arrangement, he became even more angry and vocal.  He set up seating on the front lawn of 2307 and took to yelling across the parking lot to some of the Residents that engaged with him in character attacks on certain disliked Residents and Mr. Valenta.  It got so bad that many a Saturday morning when most people slept in after a long week, they could hear him yelling at 8:00 or 9:00 A.M. from the front yard across the parking lot.  He often spoke bad about several of the Residents calling them, or often referring to them as "dirty, pigs, tramps, drunks, and crazy." He spoke the worst about Peter,#6, Suzette, #7, Bonnie, #8, and Keith, #11. It was very disturbing to say the least, but because he was still living below us, and in fear of retaliation, we were patient to wait on the formal removal of this person through the lawful stages that Mr. Valenta took to see happen.  We wanted to call the police many times to file complaints, however, our lack of confidence that the police would help came from experiences that other Residents had had, and was what kept us from going that route.

      As bad as things were for the past year or so, it got even worse from the last week of May through August 10, 2014.  When we held our Bible studies during the week, and our Sunday Services, Mr. Anagnos would make a point to disrupt our gatherings by being out front and cornered several of the Residents attempting to get them to take his side, or intimidate them if they were going to be witnesses against him.  It got so bad that many of the Residents stopped coming to the Bible studies and services. On July 8, 2014, after it was evident that Mr. Anagnos refused to vacate his apartment as required on his June 6, 2014 30 day notice to vacate, we had to cancel our Bible studies we held on Tuesdays and Thursdays until Mr. Anagnos was gone.  Also because of his constant disruptions and attacks, my husband and I felt very threatened and were in fear.  We decided to go away on weekends to visit our daughter in Miami because we were in constant fear of confrontation with Mr. Anagnos.  Our President, Mr. Valenta, filed many complaint against him with the Cape Coral Police Department, but they always refused to help or protect us from Mr. Anagnos.  When the police didn't do anything, Mr. Anagnos became more encouraged to continue his abuses, and continued to cause even more disruption amongst the Community.  It was almost like the police were helping him commit more acts against us.

      There are many Residents who can support my statements, but most are still in fear of Mr. Anagnos even though he finally was evicted from our property.

      I declare under the penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my ability.

RE: Code Case # 11-014631 (4033 Country Club Blvd)

 Dear Mr. Cassidy,

            Please be advised that this Organization will be handling the legal litigation on behalf of The Haven of Divine Love, The Nelsen Residence Inc. against the City of Cape Coral, Cape Coral Code Compliance Division, Mr. David Foley, and yourself.  Said complaints and suits will be initiated for the following reasons.

1.)        On or around May 31, 2011, Mr. Foley issued a citation stating "At this time 'your' permit # 00-14495 for addition has not been finaled )sic). You must obtain a final inspection - your lanai was changed into a room back in 2000 and the permit was (?? Illegible)" all the while when he knew or should have known that The Haven of Divine Love only recently purchased the property and did not request or obtain any such permit.

2.)        The County Assessor's Office had incorporated any changes in 2001 and has assessed the property for taxes for the completed work since then. The property was purchased with the information supplied by both the City of Cape Coral and the County of Lee indicating that there was no discrepancies or clouds on the title or the structure.  It is mysterious on how, after 11 years, Mr. Foley and the City of Cape Coral Code Compliance now discovered that someone made a mistake 11 years ago and didn't complete their required paperwork.  To assume and hold The Haven of Divine Love responsible for the incompetent actions of your City's compliance is mind boggling.

3.)        Mr. Foley apparently has a specific vendetta against The Haven of Divine Love, and is acting in retaliation of previous complaints.  I am sure you are aware that approximately 2 years ago, Mr. Foley came onto the Haven of Divine Church property and proceeded to intimidate, threaten and harass one of the Haven's parishioners who was voluntarily assisting the Haven with a few maintenance chores. Mr. Foley abuse his power of authority  at that time claiming that the parishioner could not do any work because he was not a licensed contractor and his vehicle had an out of state license plate.  A telephonic verbal complaint was lodged and the matter was abated without further action.  Mr. Foley has also initiated several other frivolous claims against The Haven of Divine Love, and the founder, Sister Eleanor Nelsen (now deceased) in the past.

4.)        This matter was disclosed and addressed to you by Mr. Valenta of The Haven of Divine Love on June 6, 2011 and you failed or refused to respond and/or correct the matter as required.

5.)        There are other issues which will be raised upon completion of the discovery process, including but not limited to the failure of the City of Cape Coral to disclose said discrepancies you now claim against the property at the time The Haven purchased same.  Had said claims as you now assert been known, it may have deterred The Haven from purchasing the property and/or would have reflected in the consideration paid.  Thus, The Haven has conceivably suffered excessive damages or losses.

            Therefore, to expedite the completion of this issue, please supply Extend A Hand all documentation regarding previous permits and inspections in which you allege such a violation by The Haven of Divine Love was made.  Additional, we request, or will be requesting upon filing our discovery motions, documentation as to the employment of Mr. Foley including any and all complaints alleged against him and/or the Code Compliance in the past.  Lastly, we request a complete disclosure as to the events leading up to Mr. Foley's reasons for inspecting the Haven's property and his "mysterious discovery" of claimed violations.


            In as much as the necessary information is not available, we will be requesting the scheduled hearing of August 18, 2011 to be postponed until such defense information is obtained.  We additionally request that a copy of all information requested above be also submitted to The Haven of Divine Love to eliminate the forwarding of same to them.

Yours, Truly
Gladys Monji,

RE: Case No. CE14-009375 & CE14-009458

Dear Gestapo Agent Cassidy and Kangaroo Court Magistrate Eskin,

            The above captioned names seems appropriate to the actions performed and perpetrated by each of you.  Never have I experience such acts of arrogance and disregard for Law, and I use such terms in total defiance to the bias, prejudice and discriminatory actions both of you performed.
            I am in receipt of your FINDINGS OF FACT, CONCLUSION OF LAW, AND ORDER on the above referenced cases.  However, copies supplied to us are illegible and indecipherable to a point where it indicates an intentional attempt by you to deter us from filing appropriate appeals. They contain unreadable  scribbling and incomplete statements. (1)  Therefore please supply us with a proper copy so that we may file appropriate appeals and Civil Rights Litigations.  Failure to do so will result in another act of intentional denials of Due Process of Law.
            I herein incorporate in this correspondence my letter of October 14, 2014 even though it appears to have already been entered in the record and completely ignored.  In said correspondence I diligently noticed you of a conflicting appearance in a superior court which could not be altered by law. (2) You claim to be a legal Magistrate, but you deliberately Denied us Due Process of law and Access to your Kangaroo Court.  This matter will be fully addressed in the Federal Courts as well.
            There appears to be an illegible notation stating something like "Mike Anagnos formrs (?) maintenance" on your Findings of Fact, Conclusion of law, and Order.    Please take Notice that Mr. Anagnos was not, nor ever was any manager or maintenance person of The Nelsen Residence.  He was a simple volunteer who picked up cigarette butts and watered a few trees. Was Mr. Anagnos somehow Subpoenaed and treated as a "credible witness"?  If so, please take notice that Mr. Anagnos is nothing but a con man who has continuously engaged in acts of extortion, blackmail, and attempts to defraud. (3), (4), (5)  He is also the principal party in the conspiracy to commit fraud along with  Marilyn Buck and Mike VanDeutekom and numerous other City of Cape Coral Code Enforcement personnel. For the City of Cape Coral to utilize Mr. Anagnos as a pertinent and credible witness is the epitome of ignorance and stupidity.
            Lastly, please take note that sometime in June 2014, another City of Cape Coral Agency posted our property and ordered us to "STOP WORK EMMEDIATELY" contrary to your Findings of fact, Conclusion of Law, and Order.  Said order also stated incorrectly that our property was "UNSAFE" and contained illegible and undecipherable notations.  After numerous correspondences with the City of Cape Coral Building Department, they have refused to provide us with legible copies and disclose the names of Supervisors and Administrators of the agent who lied about his appearance at our property and the circumstance surrounding this entire issue. Also please take notice that your Findings of Fact, Conclusion of Law, and Order should have pertained to the citation of May 21, 2014 and not to subsequent dates.  As of May 21, 2014, there was no violation pertaining to the stairway which was in FACT structurally sound and was capable of supporting all imposed loads, and that any rot of trim boards did not create a condition of an unsound stairway.  Said false and erroneous claims was the product of a conspired attempt to defraud by unscrupulous characters which will be the subject of future litigations. Our conscientious attempt to repair the rotting trim boards was deterred by other actions in June 2014.  It appears that you base your findings on unqualified witnesses who are not knowledgeable in construction, and have a precondition to their testimony.  Thus, you earned the title of Kangaroo Court Magistrate.
            As to your false and erroneous claims pertaining to Case # CE14-009458, we have documentation proving that a sign application and permit was issued in August 1999 and will be the subject of litigated in the future.  Said false citation was a deliberate, discriminatory, and retaliatory act by your Agent Marilyn Buck in response to complaints alleged against her.  Therefore please take notice that any further intimidation, threats, retaliation by your Agents Marilyn Buck will be address accordingly.  Additionally, please take note that said recent actions of Kangaroo Court Magistrate Eskin has been determined to be further evidence of bias, prejudice and discriminatory acts from previous complaints and actions over the past 5 years.
            If you thought 6 flags was a national news item, please wait until this issue becomes a public record and hits the press. There is little sense in arbitrating further with a City that has a morbid reputation for Malicious Prosecutions and Judicial Misconduct.  We have purposely submitted documentation attacked to make sure that no one within the City of Cape Coral Government can claim that they were not aware of such conspiracy to defraud, aiding and abetting, deliberate indifference, and abuse of Constitutional Guarantees of Religious and Civil Rights.  Said correspondences have been purposely submitted to the City Council, Mayor, and City Manager, who each have failed to correct or take seriously and accomplices them for all acts involved.

            Request is herein made that all proceedings be stayed pending applicable appeals and Civil Rights litigation be determined.

 Respectfully,

Jerome F. Valenta

RE: Code Case # 11-014631 (4033 Country Club Blvd)

Dear Mr. Cassidy,

            On August 6, 2011, we submitted a letter to you in regards to the actions of your employee, Mr. David Foley. (copy enclosed)

            Mr. Jerome F. Valenta, the President of The Haven of Divine Love, The Nelsen Residence Inc. has recently inquired as to the status of our activity.  Upon investigating the file, we discovered that we have never received any reply to our letter and apparently no action or investigation has been conducted into the unusual actions of Mr. Foley.

            Please inform this organization as to the current status of the issues pertaining to the property located at 4033 Country Club Blvd., Cape Coral, Florida, the status of the citations issued against The Haven of Divine Love, and the complaint we have alleged against Mr. Foley.

Dear Mr. Cassidy,

            Please accept this correspondence as a formal complaint against your code compliance officer Mr. David Foley as well as the City of Cape Coral Code Compliance Department in it's entirety.  Said complaints pertain to the recent actions of Mr. Foley as described in the attached letter to him and the attached letter from him together with copies of violation claims made by him.
            I am 68 years old and have been a Licensed Contractor, Real Estate Broker, real estate owner, and businessman all my life.  Yet, I have never witnessed such an abuse of power by any government authority as that of the City of Cape Coral Code Compliance Department in my life. Although I do not reside in Cape Coral or in Florida, I have witnessed countless occurrences of abusive activity by the Cape Coral Code Enforcement and its agents and officers..  You say that the Code Compliance is a "Compliance through cooperation" and is wanted by the Cape Coral property owners because they have adopted an attitude of a clean and safe environment.  Exactly what does that mean when incidents such as those of our complaint occur?
            Although I do not reside in Cape Coral, my official capacity with the Haven of Divine Love, The Nelsen Residence Inc. requires that I can not, nor will not tolerate such actions to be falsely levied against us.  Please be advised that we will be addressing this issue and complaint with formal complaints lodged with the City of Cape Coral City Council and any other appropriate Federal or State agencies necessary.
            Please accept this correspondence seriously since in the event it is not corrected by the time of my return to Florida in July, it will result in further actions.

RE: Case No. CE14-009375 & CE14-009458

Dear Gestapo Agent Cassidy and Kangaroo Court Magistrate Eskin,

            As of this date, we have not received the documentation and information requested in our letter both of you on November 3, 2014.  We have no choice but to conclude that said refusal to submit legible and decipherable copies of your FINDING OF FACT, CONCLUSION OF LAW, AND ORDER is a deliberate attempt to deter us from filing any appropriate appeals.  We have therefore filed a formal complaint with the City of Cape Coral Manager, John Szerlag; Mayor Marni Sawicki; City Attorney Delores D. Menendez; and the City Council as to your refusal, and/or your refusal to respond to our letter.
            This matter is not a game or a joke.  It is a serious matter that has caused irreparable harm to every Officer, Director, and Resident of The Haven of Divine Love, and has seriously jeopardized the safety, security, and economic well being of our low income seniors and disability Residents.  Your continuous abuses of powers vested to you can not, nor will not be acceptable now, or in the future. Additionally, your complete defiance to Civil and Constitutional Rights will be fully addressed in the future.  Both of you had the power to correct this situation months ago, and you, Mr. Cassidy, had the opportunity to correct it at its inception.  Your failure and refusal to do so can only be construed to be intentional, with malice and forethought.

            Your collusion, conspiracy with, and the aiding and abetting a known felon to commit extortion and attempts to defraud a Religious Entity is simply deplorable.

Respectfully,

RE: Case No. CE14-009373

Dear Mr. Cassidy,

            It has now been over 10 days since I again requested the name of your inspector on your 5-28-2014 report.  We have to concur that your refusal to supply is intentional and we must proceed accordingly.
            We have a signed declaration from a very strong witness that on April 15, 2014, Mr. Anagnos stated that he was "going to fall down the stairs and sue them for everything they got."  At the trial for eviction, Mr. Anagnos testified and submitted documents stating that he did call Cape Coral Code Enforcement, Code Enforcement set up an appointment with him, and he detailed all of the violations written up on the report, including that the stairs were unsafe.   He then reportedly fell down the stairs, claiming to hurt himself, and went to a doctor to corroborate.  However, he as of yet can not find an attorney willing to take his case.  He also testified that when we were in the process of repairing the stairs, he called the Building Department, met with the inspector, and reinforced his claims that the stairs were unsafe and were being repaired without a building permit.  We therefore feel that we have enough information and documentation to prove intentional attempt to defraud.
            As to your inspector, we suspect that whoever he was, he is not knowledgeable enough about construction to make a correct determination.  He simply took Mr. Anagnos's claims to write up his report. Your refusal to supply his name is detrimental to us, as well as the difficulty we had in obtaining a copy of said complaint or report.  We have 2 contractors, plus myself, who will testify that, although the stairway needed repairs, there were trim boards that had rotten, and some support boards needed to be replaced, the stairs were in fact structurally sound.  Minor repairs could have, and would have solved the problem, at least for several years when the stairway could have, and would have been replaced, updated, or improved.  A simple repair on a Residential Dwelling, (not a Commercial property as claimed) has now turned into a serious legal matter.  We therefore feel we have enough information and documentation to show a conspiracy, through collusion existed between the Cape Coral Code inspector and Mr. Anagnos to claim that the stairwell was unsafe for personal reasons.
             In conjunction with this, we now have the Cape Coral Police Department's failure and refusal to investigate the claims of extortion and attempted fraud claims made on July 7, 2014, and interview the critical witnesses that could have and would have testified that the stairs were in fact safe, that they used them every day, and were not in any fear of them being unsafe.
            In addition, we now have a building inspector who lied that "he was just driving by and saw construction being performed, and stopped to check it out."  His further actions of requiring our worker to stop all repairs is enough to show premeditated deliberate indifference.
            In short, Mr. Anagnos's deliberate attempt to defraud The Nelsen Residence Inc. aided and abetted through The Cape Coral Code Enforcement's collusion, combined with the aiding and abetting of Building Department's Inspector's deliberate Indifference is going to be a very interesting case.  We will be seeking damages in the amount of $100.00 per day that denied us the use of said stairs that could have, and would have been repaired within a few hours, and costs of less than $200.00.  In addition, our past problems with the City of Cape Coral Code Enforcement will now substantiate our claims of bias, prejudice and discrimination.  For Your Information,


       Conspiracy is defined as "An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action."

      Collusion is defined as  "An often secret action taken by two or more parties to achieve an illegal or improper purpose."

      Deliberate Indifference is defined as  "Deliberate indifference is the conscious or reckless disregard of the consequences of one's acts or omissions. It entails something more than negligence, but is satisfied by something less than acts or omissions for the very purpose of causing harm or with knowledge that harm will result."

      Bias is defined as "A predisposition or a preconceived opinion that prevents a person from impartially evaluating facts that have been presented for determination; a prejudice."

      Prejudice is defined as "A fore judgment; bias; partiality; preconceived opinion. A leaning toward one side of a cause for some reason other than a conviction of its justice."

THE  SAGA  BEGINS

                                           Declaration of Mickey Stegar

          I, Mickey Stegar, herein declare the following:

      I am a Resident living at the Haven of Divine Love Senior and Disability Center, Unit #1, located at 2315 SE 15th Place, Cape Coral, FL 33990.  I have knowledge of the facts attested to herein, and if called upon to testify, I could and would competently testify thereto.

      Sometime between April 10, 2014 and April 15, 2014, while I was sitting at the picnic table outside my room, Mr. Michael Anagnos walked by me. He had a container of bug spray and was spraying around the building. He was coming from the Unit #9 towards my unit #1 when he started talking to me.  Actually, he wasn't so much talking to me but was swearing and cursing, and was complaining, as he often did, stating that he doesn't know why he "puts up with this shit."  He stated "I don't know why Jerry puts up with those pigs, Bonnie (#7), Keith (11), and Chuck (#3).  He said that "Jerry never listens to me."  He continued to complain about how hard he works and is not appreciated.  (I don't know what he meant, since all I see him do is pick up cigarette butts and do some bug spraying a couple of times a week. He spends most of his time complaining and working in his garden across the street, especially when Jerry is not around.)  Michael was also complaining that Jerry has 3 cars and he has to drive his old truck, and that he should be given a new car because he is working so hard for "this stupid place."  That's when he stated, "I'm going to fall down the stairs and sue this place for everything they got."  I wasn't sure what stairs he meant since there were no stairs at my building.  Michael then started walking away, still swearing and complaining.

      I declare under the penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my ability.

                                         Declaration of Rev. Fred Large

           I, Reverend Fred Large, herein declare the following:

      I am the Pastor for the Sunday Services at the Chapel of Divine Love located at 2307 SE 15th Place, Cape Coral, FL 33990.  I have knowledge of the facts attested to herein, and if called upon to testify, I could and would competently testify thereto.

      On May 18, 2014 at approximately 10:30 A.M., I, Reverend Fred Large was preparing for our Sunday 11:30 Services when I stepped outside for a brief break.  Mr. Michael Anagnos approached me and started telling me a lot of negative things about Mr. Jerome Valenta, our President of The Haven of Divine Love, The Nelsen Residence Inc., concerning his long ago past.  I told him that I did not want to hear about Mr. Valenta's 25 years ago past, and especially when Mr. Valenta was not present.  Mr. Valenta was in New York tending to a brother who had recently suffered a stroke, and was not in Florida or at The Haven of Divine Love facility.

      Mr. Anagnos then stated "well, I am going to destroy him and the Residents of the Divine Love, no matter what it takes.  I am going to take him down by all means possible."  He then repeated himself, "I am going to take him down."

      I then told Mr. Anagnos that I had no time for murmuring, and especially when Mr. Valenta was not present, and walked away from him back into the Chapel.

      I declare under the penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my ability.

RE: Case No. CE14-009373

Dear Mr. Van Deutekom,

            I am in receipt of your August 18, 2014 letter informing us as to the name of the code inspector., (copy attached) and referenced to a hearing and an attempt to mail said notice.  I do not understand as to why I have not received any notice of any hearing you refer to.  Are you sending these letters to my California address?  We only have one mailing address as noted above, and every City of Cape Copal Agency has it, including you and Mr. Cassidy who have received and sent mail there accordingly.  So why we are not receiving mail from you at that address is a mystery.
            Regardless, I will not be in Florida on September 18, 2014.  In fact I am leaving tomorrow, September 5, 2014 at 8:00 A.M.. I will be in the Cape Coral area from October 1, 2014 to October 10, 2014, and will be available any day except October 8, 2014 for your hearing.  Request is herein made that any meeting or hearing be postponed until then.
            As to the alleged charges against The Nelsen Residence Inc., please submit to me prior to any hearing, copies of all City of Cape Coral ordinances in which you claim to exist that allow City of Cape Coral inspectors to enter private religious residential property and dictate the conditions cited on Ms. Marilyn Buck's report.  We intend to challenge the validity of any such ordinances that violate both State and Federal Constitutional guarantees.

RE: Fla. Sta. 509.092

Dear Gestapo Agent Cassidy,

            As previously noted, the above captioned name seems appropriate to the actions performed and perpetrated by you, and until you start acting and behaving like the Public Servant you are, or should be, I will not treat you with respect.
            Please accept this correspondence as a formal complaint to your incorrect assessment and actions pertaining to Florida Statute # 509.092 which caused us substantial damages.
            On  9/29/2014, you informed Cape Coral Police Office C. Cannady (010801) that we were "zoned Commercial Pedestrian and in order to evict, Mr. Valenta must go through the usual channels."  (see attached)  This, you knew, or should have known, was not correct.  This appears to be rooted from Mr. Anagnos' original complaint of May 14, 2014 and the subsequent conspiracy of your Agent Marilyn Buck. (see your own files for this reference)  In Mr. Anagnos' deliberate attempt to extort, blackmail, and defraud, he accomplice your Department and your agents in his criminal actions. If you wish to continue to align with a known felon in committing criminal act against a reputable and responsible religious community, so be it.  But be prepared to suffer the public disgrace and consequences.
            We have always been, and are currently, a C-1 commercial property with a Planned Development Permit which was approved in 1995 with special exceptions approved for a hotel/motel with efficiencies in order to provide for long-term, low-income senior housing.  As of this date, the PDP is still ACTIVE. (see attached)  As such, we are, and have always been a Public Lodging Establishment pursuant to Fla. Sta. # 509.092. (see attached)
            In 2004, after we filed a formal complaint with the Cape Coral Police department for their failure to provide adequate police protection, Chief of Police Dan Alexander, Captain Michael Maher, and Sargent Perrin specifically stated that we were, and always was, a hotel/motel public establishment pursuant to Fla. Sta. 509.092, as approved by our PDP, and laid out the procedure that must be followed.  They even gave us the documents needed to use and gave us specific instructions as to what to do.  They informed us that if we ever had any party who became disruptive to the facility, to just call them and they will do what was necessary.  Since that time, we have followed their instructions to the T.  Up until you entered the picture and decided to make your own changes.  Your statement that we need to be licensed or have a ALF, Assisted Living Facility is ridiculous.  We are not an assisted living facility, and need no such license.  We are, as applied for, a hotel/motel with efficiencies for long-term, low-income senior housing, and nothing more.  And, as such, we are a Public Lodging Establishment pursuant to the State of Florida.
            Now if Mr. Frank Cassidy, The City of Cape Coral Code Enforcement, The City of Cape Coral, and The City of Cape Coral Police Department want to discriminate against us and start making up their own rules, we will have an additional Civil Rights violation that needs to be addressed.

           As to the situation at hand, here is what happened, and here is what the consequences of your actions were.  A party by the name of Kent Sears, falsified his application, lied about his disability, and was erroneously accepted in our program.  Shortly after moving in, he began trafficking in drugs, using drugs, having numerous drug associates constantly visiting and disturbing the facility.  He became very disruptive and caused anxiety and fear amongst the other Residents.  We did, as Chief Alexander, Captain Maher, and Sargent Perrin instructed us to do, posted his door, and called for police assistance.  I have no dispute with Police Officer Cannady, as he did what was required.  However, after talking to you, he retreated without performing assistance.  Subsequently, disruptions continued, police where called out several more times costing unnecessary time, effort, and expenses to the City, other residents lived in fear, turmoil was rampant, and eventually, after abandoning the premises, we suffered over $1,800.00 damages to our property. Your INCORRECT  actions caused both us, fellow Residents, and the City of Cape Coral unnecessary damages.

            Let's get a few things straight so that there is no misconception as to what is going on.

            The Haven of Divine Love Senior Complex is A Religious Non-Profit Organization designed to provide low cost living facilities to low income senior citizens and persons with limited disabilities.  (see attached)  We strive to provide a low cost, clean, safe, quite, and a peaceful environment.  We provide low cost housing to low income seniors and persons with limited disabilities.  Our Religious Entity subsidizes over $200.00 per month for qualified low income parties.  We do so internally, and do not seek or utilize Government funding or outside sources.  It's very simple. we provide low-cost housing for very low income individuals, just like our PDP calls for.  If your mother sold her $million dollar house and wanted to retire in our facility, she would not qualify. We do not rent apartments, we PROVIDE LOW COST HOUSING FOR THE NEEDY.  In fact, we are the ONLY low cost housing for the needy in the ENTIRE CITY OF CAPE CORAL. (Something the City of Cape Coral should be ashamed of)
           The Haven of Divine Love prides itself  (and we work very hard to do so) in providing a low cost, clean, safe and secure, quiet, and peaceful environment.  However, when we do not have the assistance and cooperation of the City of Cape Coral, it is impossible to do.  I sincerely respect the City's prior Chief of Police, Dan Alexander, and his staff, in that they were conscientious and proper, and worked together to resolve the problem, and made Cape Coral a better, safe, and peaceful community.  Just the opposite of your actions.  It upsets me to no end, that people of authority, who have no knowledge of law, can interpret the law as they see fit, and can abuse their power vested to them by causing irreparable damages to the citizens they are paid to serve.  Your actions are indicative that they are intentionally performed to deliberately create and cause us further harm or damage.  Is this another act of retaliation for filing the numerous previous complaints?
            I am submitting this correspondence, along with all of the attachments to the current Chief of Police, Bart Connelly, Mayor Marni Sawicki, and City Manager John Szerlag.  In the event that this matter is not addressed and corrected within 15 days, we will be initiating additional legal actions.

Respectfully,

Jerome F. Valenta
President

PRIOR ABUSE OF AUTHORITY BY CAPE CORAL CODE ENFORCEMENT

Gross abuse of authority by code enforcement agents appears to be a common thing for a long period of time.  The following incident, which occurred in 2011, only one of many, is suspected to be the catalyst of the future retaliations by code enforcement agents.   Just as in the current case issue, code enforcement agents make false, rash, and unfounded accusations, and are unaccountable for their actions.  No responses are returned for letters of complaint or inquiry, and proper supervision and control is maintained by administrative directors.  When you file a complaint against a Cape Coral employee for improper conduct, they remember it, and sooner or later, the person complained about, or one of his associates, will visit one of your properties and retaliate.  Such is the story herein being told.
