Letter From a Visitor to Venice
Dear Venice Beach BID Management,
I wanted to take this time to thank two of your staff members who helped me through an incident that happened on Venice Beach while I was on my short vacation with my children. On Tuesday, November 20th, my kids and I were out for a bike ride and parked all 3 of our bikes on the designated bike rests. Our rental bikes were run over by a woman in her white van. Your two staff members Marielle Mink and Eduardo Edwards were there to help make sure the woman in her van did not take off and was very kind to myself and my daughters. They both were helping to retrieve all the information for me from the woman while I was trying to deal with the hotel where the bikes were rented from. Both Marielle and Eduardo had diffused the situation and helped tremendously on not making the situation ignite. The woman was cooperative in the beginning and accommodating with her insurance information and then mid way did not want to give any more contact information. The issue has been dealt with by the insurance companies, but I wanted to make sure you are aware of what a great duo you have.
T. Eugenio, Northern California
