But there the backlash was, in between (again, we're guessing here), outcry by the same people over Cleveland's abysmal and failing school ratings.
Anyway, the PD's Michelle Jarboe has an update on the story this morning. K&D was caught off guard too, it seems, and even issued a freaking press release on the topic:
"We didn't even know it existed," said Doug Price, chief executive officer for the company, which is based in Willoughby. "We're watching Channel 3, and then we started getting hate mail from people."That's all well and good but maybe K&D should focus more on taking care of its tenants first.
K&D and Forest City Realty Trust, Inc., the seller, made arrangements to transfer control of @TowerLightsCLE, along with a website where people can submit lighting requests for the tower. At night, the slender top of the tower is illuminated by tens of thousands of LEDs, which change colors to mark everything from solemn events to holidays to hometown sports teams.
In a Thursday news release, K&D said the account is here to stay.
"You'll notice we will proudly be flying the K&D flag later today," the company wrote.
