IBJ Letters To The Editor

I worked with Mike Hartman at Lauth briefly. Your [Sept. 14] story about him is heart-wrenching and hits very close to home.

My husband lost his real estate development job and was fortunate enough to find something after only a few months (but at 50 percent of the pay). We are keeping it together, but there are no extras. I hope shining a light on his situation will help him—there are so many like him who are going through the same thing. It’s really heartbreaking—thank you for showing others how it really is.
