Arena management superb

  • Follow Letters

It is with great pleasure that I take a few moments to tell you how much I appreciate Global Spectrum, its management and staff.

Many hard decisions had to be made by my family when my father, James Brown, passed. One decision was to keep the annual turkey and toy giveaways going. I remember that being one of the first questions I was asked, by someone I didn’t even know. I said “yes” without even knowing how it would be done.

We have been blessed with the help from the city of Augusta, individuals and businesses from this community to help the Brown Family Children Foundation continue these charities. We have expanded the James Brown toy giveaway by having it at James Brown Arena and providing more space for more toys to service more families. This past Christmas, we helped more children than we have ever helped. I thank God for the resources and the open hospitality and professionalism from everyone at Global Spectrum who makes it possible for parents to have a warm and safe environment for their children to have some Christmas joy.

I truly do hope that Global Spectrum is given the opportunity to continue managing James Brown Arena and the Bell Auditorium. This community will benefit from companies that not only do great work at their trade but also reach out and help the citizens of the community.

Admittedly I am not intimate

Admittedly I am not intimate with the details of this situation, but on the surface it would appear Global Spectrum has done a pretty good job of running the facility. In my opinion, the leadership in Augusta would be fools to change anything......especially with their track record of picking contractors and negotiating deals.....or, in the case of the golf course, just outright blowing deals for no reason other than.......oh well, you know who blew the deal and why. How about it black commissioners? If you are NOW looking for golf course deal how about looking where the sun don't shine because that is where Virginia Beach Golf Management told you to stick it. Pull it out, wipe it off, and see if there are any other management companies who will put up with the stink of dealing with this dysfuntional government. Another smooth move from the group who's main mission in Augusta is to play "who's got the biggest one".
