For MPI South Florida / Hospitality Coalition members and associates – which includes organizations / companies as , Ft Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau, American Cancer Association, Hilton Hotels of Florida, Sheraton hotels in Florida, Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, Ancomp DMC, Kaye Communications, Saffer & Company (and let’s not forget Debbe Barker with Flipfold LLC Florida) – everyone that has been made aware of the complaint regarding Crystal Bay Caterers Sam LoPiccolo inappropriate behavior (i.e. dropping his pants and pressing his bottom them against someone without their consent) – and responding in silence, or worse – threatening phone calls and emails, not just to myself, but to my wife – threaten to take “appropriate action” against me for exposing their organization as part of the network of complicity of sexual harassment – these same organizations that still rewards companies like Crystal Bay owner Sam LoPiccolo with more business and endorsements after being made aware of said facts. You all might want to look up the Miami Herald today (7/23/2018) google “Georgia lawmaker screams N-word and drops pants on TV in ‘Who is America?’ by By Scott Berson July 23, 2018 10:32 AM to see how we handle such inappropriate behavior here in Georgia. Up here in Georgia, we do not consider this behavior of Rep. Jason Spencer appropriate or funny – Like business and meeting professionals in South Florida seem to do. The same behavior (regarding his pants and bottom) that Crystal Bay Caterers owner Sam LoPiccolo has been reported for in this report. Both Sam LoPiccolo, and community members reaction is that this is acceptable behavior and I was the problem. As you can see, up here in Georgia, we have a different view. To be fair, the Miami Herald today seems to agree with us by calling this behavior “bizarre and graphic” and that this person “disgraced himself” and “should issue a public apology for this shameful incident” and “There is no excuse for this type of behavior, ever” One difference between Spencer and Sam LoPiccolo – “Spencer apologized for the “ridiculously ugly” segment but refused to resign, according to the AJC. “ Last email I got from Sam LoPiccolo owner of Crystal Bay Caterer in Boca Raton Florida he stated I was the one who should apologize to him for reporting his actions (not that it was untrue, just that I reported the actions/events first to Ancomp, then other companies listed above). Sam LoPiccolo first email to my wife (and again, not me, but my wife - the company my wife works for HR office has a copy of this email on file) he stated I should just “get over it.” Of course, this does not address the issues of Sanitation reports on Crystal Bay Caterers owner Sam LoPiccolo – but at this point, if anyone still thinks Crystal Bay Caterers owner Sam LoPiccolo is a reputable company that is worthy of your business and money, what is the point …… MPI, I am still waiting for a response to my letter I sent over two weeks ago– the above is just further evidence of your absurd press releases claiming some leadership position in addressing issues like sexual harassment.
