Why Boycott Realty Executives, Passport Health and PumpItUpFunBrands to Save Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center?

(Thanks to the professional work of Lirong Huang, http://azctv.com/).     

True North Companies (www.tnch.com/) of Scottsdale, Arizona is powered by an investment banker named David Tedesco.  In June of 2017 he and his company purchased 97 units at the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center.  Since then he has attempted to drive the Chinese-American businesses out of the Center. 

He bullied Super L Ranch Market, the anchor store, by giving them a thirty day notice to move, almost immediately after the sale closed on the units he purchased.  Recently, he locked Beijing Garden out of their space but not before using some of the most boorish tactics people have ever seen used against a tenant.  His team cut the phone lines four times, cut the internet lines four time, so Beijing Garden could not take credit cards.  He then had his property manager call the electric company to change the service out of Beijing Garden's name and into theirs.  Then a few days later, in the middle of lunch, while kitchen workers were cutting vegetables with sharp knives, women were in the restroom, and people were in the Dining area eating, they ordered the electricity to  be turned off.  Later that night, True North hired a crane service to pluck the exhaust fan off the roof in order to prevent the restaurant from cooking.  THEY DID THIS AT THREE IN THE MORNING!  If that was horrible enough, they then waited until the next afternoon and then called the Phoenix Fire Department falsely reporting that they smelled smoke and that customers were complaining of breathing problems.  There are currently two active police investigations into True North, 668 North Company and the illegal way they treated their tenant, Beijing Garden.  This video exposes the three companies owned by True North that power  their rude and in some cases illegal actions against the Chinese-American businessmen who have called the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center their home for decades.  The three companies we outline in this video, Realty Executive (www.realtyexecutives.com), Passport Health (www.passporthealthusa.com) and Pump It Up - Fun Brands (www.pumpitupparty.com) are the engine behind True North Companies and 668 North.  Without franchise fees and seed money from these three companies, True North could not treat Chinese-Americans with such utter disrespect and discrimination.  In the video, we encourage each viewer to

Press Release: True North Companies Sanctioned Under Anti-SLAPP Law

PRESS RELEASE 

For Immediate Release

April 24, 2018


True North Companies Sanctioned Under Anti-Slapp Law
Judge Grants Anti-Slapp Motion and Sanctions Investment Banker’s Company  True North Companies for Violating  the Law Known as the “Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation (SLAPP) Pursuant to A.R.S.§ 12-752”


Phoenix, Arizona— In a groundbreaking ruling, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge has granted a motion called Anti-Slapp and has sanctioned  the Investment Banker True North.  Additionally, the lawsuit  against Charlie Lai, the owner of Super L Ranch Market, the former anchor store at the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center has been dismissed.  In her ruling, the judge also ordered  True North to pay attorneys fees and costs.

 On September 12, 2017, Mr. Lai went to the Phoenix City Council to speak before them. In his public statements, he chronicled True North’s actions  in dealing with him. He told the City Council not to trust them, and not to trust anything they say.  True North tried to silence the grocer by suing him.  The court ruled that this was a violation of his free speech rights to speak openly at the council meeting.

In her ruling, included below for your reference, the HONORABLE KERSTIN LEMAIRE, one by one points out why each element of Mr. Lai’s testimony before the City Council is protected speech.  She found that True North brought the lawsuit “to deter the defendant from exercising his constitutional right to free speech.”  

“I went to the City Council to warn them about True North, 668 North, and their owner David Tedesco,’ said Charlie Lai.  ‘I’m very grateful that the court opted to protect my free speech rights,” he added.

Attorney Jack Wilenchik represented the supermarket.  After receiving the ruling today, he said:  “It’s very rare to have a judge issue sanctions.  This is a groundbreaking ruling under Arizona’s Anti-Slapp Law.’  He added, ‘Justice has been done for Charlie Lai.”

Mr. Wilenchik and Mr. Laivare available for interview.

Scottsdale, AZ:   A protest is planned for Wednesday morning at the Valley Ho Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, the site of a franchise meeting between Investment Banker David Tedesco  and his franchisees from True North subsidiary Passport Health.   

Passport Health, along with Realty Executives and Pump It Up (Fun Brand) is an investor in the 97 units purchased at the Chinese Cultural Center by Tedesco almost a year ago.   Since then, he’s been trying to systematically destroy the Center and replace it with another regular office building.  He wants to move Passport Health into the Center, along with his other companies, and push the Chinese businesses out. 

The protesters plan to be available to talk with and educate the Passport Health employees on the precious  nature of the Chinese Cultural Center. They do not believe that True North has told them what they are trying to do to the Center, and they hope explaining to the investors and franchisees what is happening to the property will inspire the good hearts of the Paassport Health employees to pressure David Tedesco into stopping the destruction  of the Center, while at the same time protecting the Passport Health brand.

The protest will begin at eight a.m..

WHAT:  Protest to Save the Chinese Cultural Center and to educate visiting Passport Health investors, franchisees and employees.

Press Release: Szechwan Palace Restaurant Defends Itself Against Motion by David Tedesco and 668 North, LLC. to Increase the Bond

For Immediate Release!!

The Fight to Save the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center Moves to the Superior Court Again this Morning as Szechwan Palace Restaurant Defends Itself Against Motion by David Tedesco and 668 North, LLC. to Increase the Bond In the Case that Has Kept the Investment Banker from Destroying the Center

For Information:  (480) 758-2863
thomassimon124@gmail.com

What:  Court Hearing to Decide Bond Amount 

Where:  Judge Warner-Courtroom 912,
East Court Building, 101 W Jefferson St, Phoenix, AZ 

When:  10 AM, Thursday, March 29, 2018

Dateline Phoenix, AZ:  After the Appellate Court in Arizona ruled to STAY construction on the exterior of the Chinese Cultural Center in Phoenix last year, Investment Banker David Tedesco, owner of 668 North, Realty Executives, Passport Health and Pump It Up Games (Fun Brands), returns to court this morning to try and get the Maricopa County Superior Court Judge in charge of the case to increase the bond amount paid in the case.  The Szechwan Palace Restaurant has already posted a bond in the tens of thousands of dollars, but Tedesco is asking for as much as $250,000 more.

According to court papers, the investment banker claims he is losing over $40,000 per month as a result of being told by the Arizona Appellate Court to stop all construction to the iconic Chinese roof, the Prayer Garden and the exterior of the building at the Center.  He wants the small business owner of the Szechwan Palace Restaurant to come up with more cash...a lot of cash.

The restaurant owner, Michael Zhao,  is expected to testify, telling the court that to require hundreds of thousands of dollars in more bond money, when the appellate court has already said that he is likely to win this case, will put undue stress and hardship on his company. Jack Wilenchik, the attorney representing Szechwan Palace, Will ask the court to keep the bond at the same amount it currently sits.

The hearing is expected to last about an one and a half hours.

Fight to Save Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center

The real story of History and Culture in Phoenix, and an investment banker's attempt to Destroy it.

DATELINE, Phoenix, AZ: David Tedesco and his partners bought 97 commercial condominium units at the Chinese Cultural Center, but they have been ignoring other owners’ rights, in a fictitious attempt to eliminate the landmark Chinese Cultural Center by acting like they bought the entire property. This is not true! Here is “The Real Story.”

On Monday, April 16, 2018 a Maricopa County Judge will oversee a jury as it hears an eviction case between Beijing Garden Restaurant and 668 North, LLC, a company owned by Investment Banker David Tedesco of Scottsdale. (Tedesco is also the managing partner of True North Company, Realty Executives, Passport Health and Pump It Up-Fun Brand.) At the root of the case is who has rightful possession of the restaurant property, located in the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center. The restaurant has a 5 year option, which they have exercised…Tedesco is refusing to accept that option.

In the past three weeks, Tedesco and his operatives have tried to forcibly evict the restaurant from the space where they have done business for the past 5 years. They have cut the phone and internet lines (4) times, and in the middle of the lunch hour, while kitchen workers were prepping food with sharp knives, women were using the restroom and patrons were eating in the Dining room, they cut the electrical power and locked the APS box. In the middle of the night, they hoisted a crane to the top of the building and stole the restaurant’s furnace and blower to prevent them from cooking food. Then they called the Phoenix Fire Department and falsely reported that there was smoke filling up the building and that customers were complaining.

Unable to force the restaurant out, they turned food delivery trucks away, attempted to lock the front door with a chain while workers were still inside, and even filed trespassing charges against the restaurant and their agents. None of this produced the results such thuggish behavior expected, so now we wait for court.

This is just the latest chapter of a saga that began last August when members of the community learned that Tedesco who had purchased part of the Chinese Cultural Center intended to destroy the Chinese elements and iconic roof and garden at the Center and replace it with another standard office building. The investment banker’s plan is to evict the Chinese businesses and put his own companies, Realty Executives, Passport Health and Pump It Up-Fun Brand in their place. But the community and the other owner of the property have different ideas.

If you have followed this case at all, you probably know that David Tedesco, True North Company, Realty Executives, Passport Health and Pump It Up-Fun Brand thought they could run roughshod over the Chinese American community.

They were wrong. Over and over again, Tedesco and his band of thugs have lost court battle after court battle (there is currently a STAY as ordered by the Arizona Appellate Court preventing them from tearing down the iconic Chinese roof, the outside Chinese elements at the property, or from altering or destroying the Prayer Garden).

Last week, they asked Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christopher Whitten to throw the restaurant out, but as has happened so many times before, they were rebuffed. They have made it clear that if they can’t get approval to destroy the Chinese Cultural Center on the merits, they intend to wage continual court battles in order to financially bleed the smaller businesses to economic death. They will not succeed.

Szechwan Palace Restaurant owns the property in the Center where it does business, and they have no intention of seeing the property they bought turned into just another office park. They have property rights under Prop. 207, and they intend to exercise those rights as a property owner. Despite the fact that they own their property and an undivided interest in all the common areas on the property, Tedesco has directed the property management to rekey the doors to the common areas and the roof and they are now refusing to give Szechwan Palace a key, despite their clear right to have one as an owner, not renter, of the property. The restaurant has filed suit against Tedesco and his partners to keep them from tearing down the Center, and they are expected to head back to court this week to have the investment banker told to give up the key to the common areas. STANDBY!

On the Next part, please find 10 Questions we ask of David Tedesco, of True North Company, Realty Executives, Passport Health and Pump It Up-Fun Brand. These are questions of the heart, questions that must be answered!

Best wishes, and thank you for your support!!

-----------------------------

10 Questions We Ask David Tedesco Managing Partner of True North, 668 North, Realty Executives, Passport Health and Pump It Up (Fun Brand):

1). As the other owner of the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center, don’t you think Szechwan Palace Restaurant, which has been operating there long before you, is also protected by Prop.207?

2). As the other owner of the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center, the Szechwan Palace Restaurant has the equal rights to enjoy and access the common areas of the community. Why do you lock down the Chinese Prayers Garden, without his consent? Don’t you understand that you are not the sole owner there?

3). The other owner, Szechwan Palace restaurant, has non-dividable interests in every piece of the roof tile and every piece of Chinese elements in the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center. Your forceful demolishing and removal of these Chinese elements without the other owner’s agreement show your arrogant and disrespectful attitude toward small business and minority groups. Shouldn’t you be ashamed that you damage your image and reputation

4). Who gave you the authority to block the other owner, Szechwan Palace from accessing and cleaning their exhaust hood, which is a safety issue for an operating restaurant? Where is their property rights?

5). The other Chinese restaurant in Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center, Beijing Garden (BJG), has been a tenant for 6 yrs. They exercised their option to extend their lease seven months ago. If you believe their renewal is invalid, why can’t you get a court eviction order?

6). Without the court eviction order, who gave you the right to repeatedly cut off Beijing Garden’s phone line 4 times in a week? What kind of business image are you depicting?

7). Without the court eviction order, who gave you the right to dismantle the fire exhaust fan of BJG, and bully its employees from restoring it? Don’t you know you have intentionally created a fire hazard environment which puts BJG’s employees and customers lives at risk?

8). Without a court eviction order, who gave you the right to steal BJG’s APS utility account and change it to your name and order a power disconnection to the restaurant? Don’t you understand honesty is the foundation of a business?

9). Do you think the FAKE leases that you used to secure the mortgage loan with Enterprise Bank are beyond the reach and arm of the law?

10). What makes you believe you are above the law?

Press Release: County Judge Orders Investment Banker David Tedesco and his Company 668 North to Refrain from Harassing the Beijing Garden Restaurant

PRESS RELEASE 

After Nearly Four Hours In Open Court Debate A Maricopa County Judge Rules Beijing Garden Restaurant in The Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center Can Stay Where They Are for Now!  Judge also Orders Investment Banker David Tedesco and his Company 668 North to Turn the Electricity Back On, Turn the Phones Back On and to Refrain from Harassing the Restaurant Employees or Customers!  

For Immediate Release
Contact T. Simon: 480-758-2863
thomassimon124@gmail.com


March 13, 2018:  Chinese Americans in Phoenix, Arizona continue their hard fought battle against an investment banker who wants to turn the iconic Chinese Cultural Center and Prayer Garden into just another office building.

On Tuesday afternoon, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christopher Whitten held an emergency hearing to decide whether to approve the request of 668 North, LLC, part owner of the Cultural Center, to “kick out” Chinese owned business Beijing Garden Restaurant, even though  the restaurant has 5 years left on their lease.  The court said no to the investment banker’s request.

The hearing followed a tumultuous two weeks in which 668 North representatives attempted to drive the small restaurant out of the Cultural Center by cutting their phone lines and internet connection four times, turning the electricity off twice, threatening to have workers and even customers arrested for trespassing, and dismantling the kitchen exhaust and fire emergency systems to prevent the restaurant from cooking.  Despite this harassment, the owner of Beijing Garden Restaurant and his employees pressed on, at times serving loyal customers without the benefit of lights, credit card service or a fully functioning kitchen.

At the hearing, the judge told Christopher Payne the attorney representing 668 North, that he couldn’t believe the things he was hearing, adding “...if they are true, they are not only horrible, they are criminal.”  The judge then warned Mr. Payne that if he is advising his client to do these things “you may be heading across the street” to the criminal division as a defendant.  It should be noted that as the judge chastised Mr. Payne for nearly 15 minuets over what may be criminal conduct by his clients, True North in house attorney Andrew Christensen and property manager Rob Reblin, two police detectives sat in the back of the courtroom.  They were there to observe the proceedings first-hand, since there have been countless calls for service at the Cultural Center this month relating to 668 North’s activities at the Center.

At the end of the hearing, the judge ordered that the electricity should be turned on, the phone service and Internet service turned on, and that orders of protection from harassment be put in place to allow both sides to do business peacefully.  

Attorney for the restaurant  Jack Wilenchik asked the Court to set the case for jury trial next month.  The court agreed and the trial was set for Monday, April 16, 2018.  The court denied 668 North’s request for an injunction, which would have forced the restaurant out of its space, which it has occupied for the past 5 years.

668 North is a division of True North Company, Scottsdale.  True North owns and operates Realty Executives, Passport health, and Pump It Up (Fun Brands).  The companies are owned and operated by David Tedesco of Scottsdale.  

“We are very pleased with today’s ruling,” said Wilenchik.  ‘The judge signaled his disgust with 668 North’s bully tactics.  The judge made it clear that this kind of conduct is not right, it is ‘criminally wrong.”

Press Release: After Losing In Court, Investment Banker David Tedesco Attempts to Self-Help Evict Tenant Beijing Garden Restaurant In Chinese Cultural Center

Press Release For Immediate Release

Simon:  480-758-2863

Press Release: After Losing In Court, Investment Banker David Tedesco Attempts to Self-Help Evict Tenant Beijing Garden Restaurant In Chinese Cultural Center.  Restaurant Vows to Serve Food 24 Hours a Day And Honor the Remaining 5 Years on Lease.

For the third night in a row Chinese Americans have held vigil overnight to prevent investment banker David Tedesco from illegally evicting them from the Beijing Garden Restaurant in the Chinese Cultural Center.  Not able to get what they want from the courts, 668 North Company and their attorneys have turned to rogue criminal acts to try to get what the courts have refused to give them.

In just the past 24 hours, True North has cut the phone wires of the restaurant, blocked their kitchen exhaust fan to prevent them from cooking, threatened to arrest them for trespassing, and attempted to lure them from the property and forcibly lock them out of the building.  

They called the police and tried to have supporters of the effort arrested and they even attempted to have their advisor arrested when he walked to the common area roof to turn the kitchen fan back on.  The police denied their request.  They called the fire department, after they themselves turned the exhaust fan off to the kitchen, and asked the fire department to shut the restaurant down.  Again they were rebuffed.  Finally, last night when the owner of Beijing Garden Restaurant went to the store to purchase supplies, the in-house attorney for True North lured the manager to the property office, saying the fire department wanted to talk with him, while a second employee of Investment Banker David Tedesco, Robert Reblin, ordered the remaining employees out of the restaurant.  They refused.  The police were called and again the restaurant was saved from illegal takeover and eviction.

So the Beijing Garden Restaurant, which has 5 years remaining on their lease, remains on watch for the next illegal attempt to evict them from the property.  Customers and workers at the restaurant will remain inside for as long as it takes for them to receive justice.  The owners of the restaurant thank the Phoenix Police and Fire Department for protecting their rights as law-abiding citizens.  They will remain law-abiding and they call on True North and David Tedesco to obey the law as well and to cease these illegal acts.  If you feel you have a valid claim, Mr. Tedesco, take it to the judge who has repeatedly told you “NO.”

                 by True North and David

Contact:   480-758-2863   thomassimon124@gmail.com

Phoenix, AZ:  Arguments in a Phoenix courtroom this morning in what is being called an Anti-SLAPP Motion to Dismiss against True North Companies, one of two owners of the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center.  Attorneys for Charlie Lai, the owner of Super L. Ranch Market will ask the court to dismiss a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation (SLAPP) filed against him by True North.

 

According to the Lai's Attorney, Jack Wilenchik, the grocer spoke before the Phoenix City Council on September 12, 2017,  in support of a "Citizen Petition" related to preserving the Chinese Cultural Center.  In his speech to the Council, Mr. Lai told them that based on his own experience, True North was not trustworthy or acting in "genuine good faith."  He was trying to tell the Council members not to be deceived by True North or their proposal.  True North sued Mr. Lai for defamation on the basis of six statements he made in his eight minute, eighteen second speech to the Council.  (Speech is available on line at: https://youtu.be/lz9j6NiuVCE)  One of the statements objected to by True North hit too close to home, as Mr. Lai stated, based on his experience with them:  "So from the beginning to the end, and to our last day, they were...they were lying."

 

Pursuant to the Anti-SLAPP law in Arizona, a lawsuit may not be brought to prevent or deter someone from exercising their Constitutional Right to Free Speech before a Governing Body.  In this case, Lai's attorneys maintain that everything their client said was true and the only purpose of True North's Complaint is to intimidate Mr. Lai in connection with another law suit in which the Super L. Ranch Owner has named them in, as well an attempt to quash Mr. Lai's Free Speech rights.

 

In addition to asking the court to dismiss True North's Complaint, Lai's attorneys are asking for reasonable attorneys fees and costs, as well as damages of up to five-thousand dollars.

Chinese Cultural Center Exterior Construction Halted by Court. Where Do We Go Now?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


February 6, 2018— The Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center and Garden has been top-of-mind since August 2017,  when people rose up in protest after learning an investment banker from Scottsdale wanted to tear down there iconic building and prayer garden.   To them, it has been a bitter battle between history and culture and big business. Last week, the Arizona Appellate Court, Division One, struck  a blow to 668 North, the investment banker, and handed a major win in the fight to preserve the Chinese Cultural Center to its grassroots supporters. 

The Court ruled “that there is a strong likelihood of success [for the constructions opposition] on the merits,” and so they granted a Stay, preventing 668 North from altering the exterior of the property in any way, while the court reviews the case – – a process which could take up to a year.

You may be wondering, what is this fight all about? The investment banker has continually touted  his position as being one of property rights...his, and his alone. We agree that property rights is at the core of this important debate. But were you aware, there are two owners of the property known as the Chinese Cultural Center? Don’t worry, most people do not know the center is owned by CJ Design the Szechwan Palace Restaurant and 668 North.   Yes, that is correct, the restaurant owns a small part of the center…it is NOT a renter. 

So, the same protections afforded by Prop. 207 to the investment banker belong to the restaurant owner, as well. This is important because when the restaurant purchased their property, they did so with the understanding that they were purchasing a property that was designed and built as a Chinese Cultural Center. They don’t want that to change, and since David Tedesco of 668 North has attempted to run roughshod over them with his piecemeal plan to tear down the roof,  close off the garden, and destroy all the exterior Chinese elements at the center, the minority owner of the property, Szechwan Palace Restaurant, has hauled him off to court. 

In his closing arguments, attorney Atticus Finch, in the 1960 American classic To Kill a Mockingbird, looked straight at the jury and said “In this country, our courts are the great levelers.“   What an apt description of what is happening  in this instance as we strive to save the Chinese Cultural Center. A rich, powerful businessman, David Tedesco, owner of 668 North, attempts to run over and bully a small businessman, who merely wants to run his restaurant, as he has for years...as a Chinese restaurant in a Chinese-themed center.  Left to his own devices, the owner of Szechwan  Palace Restaurant would have lost, so he went to court with his modern day Atticus Finch by his side, Phoenix Attorney Jack Wilenchik.  Wilenchik presented his case before the court, “where all men are created equal,” and he won.  

The court told David Tedesco “NO”,  A word the powerful rarely hear. NO, you can’t tear the iconic Chinese roof down. NO, you can’t destroy the Chinese prayer garden. NO, you can’t rip the Chinese elements from the exterior walls of the building. And NO, your property rights under proposition 207 are not more valuable than the 207 property rights of the Szechwan Palace Restaurant...the little guy. 

So now we stand at a crossroads. We extend to 668 North and David Tedesco an olive branch. We invite you to come to the table of reconciliation and search with us for a resolution. We stand ready to compromise with you. We are prepared to purchase the property from you at a fair and reasonable price. Now that the courts have acted as the “leveler“ it is time for us to seek out a win-win solution that benefits us all.  Mr. Tedesco, if we were in the midst of a chess game, I would say to you, the next move is yours.

Peace! 

Arizona Court of Appeals has stopped the construction at the Chinese cultural center and reversed an order from the lower court

For Immediate Release

480-758-2863


February 1, 2018:   Arizona Court of Appeals has stopped  the construction at the Chinese cultural center and reversed an order from the lower court that would’ve allowed 668 North to tear down the iconic tile roof and Chinese elements at the center.  

 “This is a big relief to the Chinese Americans, stopping big business from destroying culture and history. We now call on 668 N. to sit down with us and work out a win-win solution for all parties. The courts have spoken, they have stopped True North from destroying the center, so it is time for us to work things out,” said Thomas Simon spokesman for the preservationists. “The Court of Appeals granted our request to keep the injunction in place, which the judge was going to lift in December. It will stay in place during the appeal, which can take as long as a year. Today is another proud day in the fight to save the Chinese Cultural Center and the Chinese businesses,” said Attorney Jack Wilinchek.

Press release       January 31, 018
 
Phoenix, AZ, January 31, 2018: Beijing Garden Restaurant, located in the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center, 44th Street and Van Buren, Phoenix, AZ, will be in Maricopa County Superior Court this morning asking a judge to issue a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) prohibiting 668 North, LLC, from violating lease terms and from evicting them. The restaurant has been a tenant at the CCC since November of 2013, however Beijing Garden claims in its lawsuit that since David Tedesco purchased most of the lots at the Center in June of 2017, he has purposely tried to destroy the restaurant’s business, and is therefore in breach of Beijing Garden’s right to quiet enjoyment of the propererty.
    Despite having a 5-year option to further lease the property through 2021, 688 North is attempting to evict Beijing Garden so that they can move ahead with their ill-advised plan to remove the Chinese Cultural Center iconic roof and destroy the Chinese exterior elements prominently displayed on the building property.  Attorney Jack Wilenchik represents the restaurant, and he intends to ask the judge for a TRO which would keep the investment banker from making it appear to the public that the Center is closed and prevent them from evicting the restaurant until the court has the chance to hear the case.
    Today’s hearing will be at 10:00 AM in Judge Sherry Stephens Courtroom, East Court Building, 101 West Jefferson Street, Suite 712, Phoenix, AZ.

The “Real” Truth on Chinese Community Effort and Property Rights
(Here’s the Money…Where’s True North?)

PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Thomas Simon

January 5, 2018–In the last three months, True North has engaged in a public campaign to lead the local community to believe the Chinese Community should stop protesting, since they cannot come up with the funds to purchase, and that proposition 207 only protects the private property rights of investment bankers like them. 

The Chinese community today wants to expose the truth with hard evidence:

1.     Here is the money, where is True North?

We have the money and are ready to show it but True North is not sincere about public claims to meet with us.

True North purchased the property on June 9th, 2017 for 10.5 million, with a 9.6 million mortgage and less than a 900,000 cash investment. 

On August 29, the Chinese United Association of Greater Phoenix (CUAGP) delivered its first Letter of Intent to True North, offered them a 500,000 profit on their 2 month investment, and promised a thirty day cash closing.  This Letter of Intent was never answered by True North.

On September 18, the Chinese United Association delivered its 2nd Letter of Intent to True North, offered them a 2.5 million profit on their 3 month investment, and promised a thirty day cash closing.  This letter was officially turned down by True North.

On October 25, 2017, the Chairman of a publicly listed Chinese Company flew from China to Phoenix and, accompanied by two other Chinese executives, delivered the 3rd Letter of Intent to True North, offering them close to 3 million dollars profit on their four month investment, and an immediate 1 million dollar cash deposit in an escrow account, along with a 30 day cash closing.  (True North was provided the evidence of verified bank letters and bank deposited funds that will be used for its closing, plus a Letter of Intent representing a new higher offer.)  These three executives waited at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Phoenix for 2 days, and True North refused to meet with them. 

Please note, the 3rd Letter of Intent was facilitated by Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio.  After his office contacted Investment Banker David Tedesco, the owner of True North,  and requested a face-to-face meeting between the buyer and seller, the Tedesco made several demands, including the buyer’s verified bank deposits proving net worth.  The buyer produced all the documents per True North’s demands, but continued to sit and wait for the phone to ring at their hotel.  The buyer sent Tedesco a direct email with its Letter of Intent and verified bank deposits showing the available cash to purchase the property.  Despite all this good faith by the Chinese, Mr. Tedesco showed no respect for his special trip to meet with him, and the buyer had to fly back to China in two days without ever hearing anything from True North.

It is a pity that True North covers up these facts, keeping them from the public, his associates, the Arizona Republic and Rose Law group, and whoever is still stating “Where is the money, or show me the money.”   

We want to share all the facts and evidence:  

1.  On Wednesday, October 24, 2017, after waiting most of the day for some word from the investment banker, a representative of the Chinese buyer asked the following of Councilman Sal DiCiccio’s office: “Do you think there will be a meeting today?” Answer, “At this time, I rather doubt it.” In a last ditch effort to “Show the Money” the representative of the buyer said via text: “Can you call them to confirm? …really would like to meet Mr. Tedesco, and he can deposit the 1 million today.” “Will do,” said the councilman’s office. That was the last words heard.  As for the disrespectful manner in which this businessman was treated by True North, one text from the Councilman’s office sums it up: “This is B.S.,” they said. 

The Chinese Community and its media advisor Tom Simon presented to the newspaper reporter Abe Kwok many of these facts during an in-person meeting on October 26th, however, the truth was again ignored, and Kwok’s article on the very next day still asked: “Where is the money?”   Kwok published an opinion letter in which he continued to push the narrative  that the Chinese cannot come up with the money and have not exhibited the good faith to purchase it.   This is unbelievable to all the Chinese community as True North continues to mislead the public?  What is the agenda behind your untruths? 

With these hard facts, the Chinese Community is now asking Rose Law Group and the Arizona Republic to be constructive, not destructive, and, therefore help facilitate the purchase.  We are transparent and happy to share with you the bank verified funds, and the Letter of Intent.

2.      Where is the private property rights for the Chinese owner and Chinese Cultural Center?

Much has been said about property rights as they relate to the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center and the saving of the property, however, no one is mentioning that the Center is a condominium property, and there exist a Chines owner whose property rights is totally forgotten.

The American Constitution protects all citizens, and so far the paper, the lawyers and even the city, have taken the view that the Chinese Cultural Center private property rights only belong to True North, as if he were the sole owner of the property.  HE IS NOT!  The mere fact that True North neglected and violated the property rights of his co-owner, Szechwan Palace Restaurant, resulted in the Investment Banker being hauled into court and the issuance of a Temporary Restraining Order against him.  However, this fact is covered by True North’s lawyer, the Arizona Republic and the city. 

What’s more, in the dispute involving whether to destroy or save the Chinese Cultural Center, we have forgotten some very basic principles, like social responsibility and fair and honest dealing with the community.  While one private property owner, Szechwan Palace Restaurant, is totally ignored, even though he clearly has property rights under Prop. 207,  the Chinese Americans are accused of not having good faith, in spite of the fact that the community is volunteering its time and donating their money to save the Center, not just for themselves but for all of Arizona and America.  The drive to Save the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center is above all an honest and sincere effort to protect culture and history.

It is very sad to see that the newspaper has taken statements by the investment banker at face value, without sufficient vetting. Out of concern that the careful reader may not understand the actual situation, we have compiled a response to the articles and misconceptions in the public space by those who would suggest that destroying the Center is somehow their right and a good thing for the community at large.

Please note that as of today, what has been published by the Arizona Republic and Rose Law Group could be nothing further from the truth.  We want to announce to all of the readers that Chinese Americans in Phoenix metro represent a significant percentage of business ownership. Operating many small businesses, including restaurants, hotels, shopping centers and countless other service oriented businesses in the community. The Chinese contribution to the economic engine of Arizona is unquestioned. Despite this, the Arizona Republic, through its “Asian” columnist Abe Kwok, has repeatedly attacked the veracity of the Chinese Americans seeking to purchase the property, chiding them with catchy phrases like “Save the Cultural Center by saying: “Shouldn’t it be one first?”

We hope the above facts provide enough evidence to counter the newspaper’s most recent article, in which its reporter Kwok disrespects the Chinese Community by taunting them to “Show the Money.”   This journalist, who admits he has “no business experience whatsoever,” effectively does the bidding of Investment Banker David Tedesco by stating that the he has rebuffed two earlier offers from the community because “there was no real demonstration of who the prospective buyers are and their proof of funds.” The reality is that neither Mr. Tedesco nor Mr. Kwok have demonstrated the seriousness needed to proceed with a win-win solution to this problem.
True North is using the newspaper and his own lawyer to make a big deal of proposition 207, the property rights law, but we adhere to a higher law. To David Tedesco, True North, Pump It Up and Realty Executives, all Companies owned and controlled by David Tedesco, we remind you of the words of Martin Luther King who passed away decades ago but whose idea of social responsibility and Socially Responsible Investing is fresh on our mind at this writing. He said: “We don’t have to argue with anybody. We don’t have to curse and go around acting bad with our words. We don’t need any bricks and bottles, we don’t need any Molotov cocktails, we just need to go around to these stores, and to these massive industries in our country, and say...Make the first item on your agenda—fair treatment, where God’s children are concerned. Now, if you are not prepared to do that, we do have an agenda that we must follow. And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you.” (Martin Luther King Jr.)

The Chinese Community sincerely hopes that this press release clears up the biased reporting and misunderstanding created by True North.  We are hopeful the Arizona Republic and the Rose Law Group are now equipped with the truth…we have a real buyer, with real money, and would advise Truth North to sit down at the table to deal with the Chinese Community to Save the Chinese Cultural Center and preserve American value and cultural diversity for this community and all future generations.

December 27, 2018–Phoenix, AZ:  In a post-Christmas gift to the Phoenix Asian-American Community, the Arizona Appeals Court has stayed two lower court orders by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Randall Warner.  Left unchecked, the rulings would have allowed Investment Banker David Tedesco to move ahead with the removal of the roof and exterior Chinese elements of the Chinese Cultural Center as early as Wednesday, January 3, 2018.  This Order by the Court of Appeals halts any destruction of the property for the Immediate future.

“We argued that the Judge in the case has misinterpreted the law and by its ruling has deprived the Appeals Court of its oversight role in the court system,” said Szechwan Palace Restaurant Attorney Jack Wilenchik.  “For the moment, the Court Order prevents 668 North from destroying the exterior of the Center.  It’s a big win for those who care about history and culture,” Wilenchik added.

The Arizona Court of Appeals has Ordered David Tedesco and 668 North to file a reply to the motion to stay by January 9, 2018.  Meanwhile, the Appeals Court Panel stayed Superior Court Judge Randall Warner’s December 1, 2017 and December 20, 2017 rulings, which otherwise would have cleared the way for the destruction of the Chinese Cultural Center.  

This is a big fat Christmas and New Year’s gift to all members of the Asian-American community,” said Thomas Simon, Spokesman for the Szechwan Palace Restaurant.  “Enjoy the New Year,” added Simon, “The fight to Save the Chinese Cultural Center goes on,” he said.

Press Release: The Szechwan Palace Restaurant Files a Motion to Reconsider with the Maricopa County Court

For Immediate Release

Date: December 1, 2017

IMG_0565.JPG

 

Motion to Reconsider in the Chinese Cultural Center TRO case filed tonight.  The owner of the Szechwan Palace Restaurant fights back by filing a Motion to Reconsider with the same court that ruled against it earlier today.

In the filing the restaurant claims the Court erred in failing to recognize that destruction of the iconic roof and garden at the Center interferes with the restaurants right to do business.

The ruling earlier today calls for ending the Temporary Restraining Order protecting the roof, garden and Chinese elements at the Center.  If the Court fails to change its position the TRO will cease on December 11, 2017, paving the way for the Center to be demolished.

This is the first response from the restaurant since this morning’s ruling.  They are prepared to go to the Arizona Appellate Court for relief shout the lower Court refuse to reverse itself.

March this Morning to City Hall Chambers as Preservationists Call for City Council to Cancel Permit to Destroy Iconic Chinese Roof

March this Morning to City Hall Chambers as Preservationists Call for City Council to Cancel Permit to Destroy Iconic Chinese Roof

Contact:  480-758-2863

November 15, 2017–Preservationists working to preserve the Phoenix Chinese Cultural Center will march from the Center to City Hall Chambers today at 11AM as they call for City Council to cancel their issuance of a permit they recently issued to True North Company.  

The marchers will leave from the Szechwan Palace Restaurant at the Center at 11AM on Wednesday, November 15.  They will walk down 44th Street to Washington where they will board the light rail towards downtown Phoenix. Taking the train is significant because during the late 1870s and 1880s, the first Chinese immigrants to Phoenix, mostly laborers who were brought to the state, came for the back-breaking job of laying down railroad tracks in the desert, and they settled around First and Adams streets. 

The Chinese Americans who march plan to head to City Council Chambers this afternoon to call for the city to recall the permit.  The preservationists believe the city attorney mistakenly issued the permit to True North Company who owns some of the condo units at the property but not all.  Szechwan Palace Restaurant also owns the property and objects to the proposed demolition of the Chinese elements at the Center.  It is the restaurant’s position that issuing a permit to an owner of some condo units is improper as it favors one owner over the other.  The only entity which can legally request a permit, the restaurant believes, is the condominium association.  

So far, a judge in State Court has sided with the restaurant, issuing a Temporary Restraining Order barring True North from taking down the roof, destroying any of the exterior Chinese elements or making any changes to the religious Chinese garden at the property.  A hearing in that case is set for this Friday to determine the status of that Temporary Restraining Order.

What:  March from Chinese Cultural Center

Who:  Preservationists who want the city council to recall issued permit which would allow destruction of iconic Chinese roof

When:  11AM Wednesday, November 15, 2017

Where:  Chinese Cultural Center - Szechwan Palace Restaurant

November 13, 2017–Customers at the Szechwan Palace Restaurant, located at the Chinese Cultural Center and Garden, were evacuated last night shortly after 9:00 PM when a suspicious item was found outside the restaurant’s entrance.  Police taped off the Center and temporarily closed it while they investigated what turned out to be two oxygen tanks and medical-style masks left on the sidewalk about fifty feet from the restaurant entrance.  The bomb squad was called to investigate and the Center was eventually reopened after the “all clear” sign was given about 10:45 PM.

Police were called after the oxygen tanks were found in a place they should not have been—in the middle of the sidewalk for no obvious  reason. The restaurant owners are on heightened alert due to recent unsubstantiated reports of criminal activity at the Center by True North, owner of 97 lots at the property—Szechwan Palace owns the rest.

 

“True North has made unverified  claims of criminal activity at the Center to support their aggressive fencing of the property.  They have, however, failed to cite any police reports to support those claims,” said Thomas Simon, Spokesman for Szechwan Palace Restaurant.  “By making  public statements about alleged criminal activity, without any proof, to score points in a highly publicized court battle, True North creates an atmosphere which is extremely charged.  Therefore, Szechwan Palace, out of abundance of caution, must do the responsible thing and call authorities whenever there is a possibility of risk to its staff or patrons,” Simon added.  

As the Chinese Cultural Center continues to be open for business daily, we remind True North and COFCO management of their fiduciary duties to both the Master Association and the Condominium Association.  

Though safety and security should be their primary concern, they have launched a campaign to make it appear that the Center has closed.  They have had to be repeatedly reminded to turn the parking lights on after dark.  The premature announcement on Google and Yelp that the Center is “permanently closed,” along with the aggressive fencing, lining up of large unlocked dumpsters in the front of the Center, the eviction of the anchor store and the removal of signage from the property all add to their narrative that we are not open for business.

 

The Chinese Cultural Center has been a safe-haven in Phoenix for the last twenty years.  This mismanagement hurts business, attracts vagrants and homeless to the area, and can only lead to more situations like last night where we have to interrupt our daily lives to maintain safety and security, compromised by a partial owner of the property who attempts to float the narrative that the Center is closed and unsafe.

Szechwan Palace Restaurant reminds the community that the Chinese Cultural Center is open for business.  As owner of the property itself, the Restaurant will maintain a safe, secure and customer friendly environment for all its customers.
