We, the owners and family of M.A.H.P., dba. A.L.H. Roofing, would like to take this opportunity to give an explanation for the unfortunate incident that occurred on Monday, Jan.7. We woke up to phone calls from friends, family, and costumers regarding a broadcast on a radio station.
It was said that our company had illegally dumped trash out at Pipeline, on the outskirts of Globe. Our names were broadcasted and dragged in the mud. Our reputations were damaged and our family deeply hurt by false accusations. When I, Susana P. Hurtado, called the radio station to speak on our behalf to give an explanation, I was told I couldn’t speak and very impolitely hung up on.
What I was trying to explain is that we sold a company truck a few months ago; unfortunately, there was still trash in the bed of the truck. The vehicle was not in running condition at the time. So we asked the person that purchased the vehicle if they would wait for us to clean it out. He said he would just take it and dispose of the trash himself.
After that we do not really know how the trash got out to Pipeline. When we heard the trash came from our vehicle we went out to Pipeline to verify. We asked officers to meet us out there to record whatever was found. When we arrived and saw that it was from our truck, we offered to clean it up. An officer recorded the incident.
As for the person who called the radio station to report this, we have no bad feelings. We appreciate everything nature has to offer, the beauty of the outdoors, and our recreational sites. We have, many times, volunteered in cleaning up our community. So I understand where they are coming from. He just reported it to the wrong person.
But, the person spreading the bad rumors and the fact that he wouldn’t let me say anything in our defense was very unprofessional. We’ve cleaned up other peoples’ messes before; that was not the hard part.
It was hearing somebody talk down upon our family and our roofing company and that did more damage than anything.
To all those friends and family who supported us, we thank you all so much. I have always told everyone “I love our little town!”
We know so many good people in our community and they had our backs on this one. These are the times when true friendship is shown.
God bless our loyal customers, friends, and family. Thank you for the opportunity to explain the story.
With much appreciation,
Susana P. Hurtado and A.L.H. Roofing
