Public Pressure Forces Wisconsin Management Company’s Hand In Madison Lease Matter Concerning Brittany Zimmerman

April 14, 2008

I received this note from Wisconsin Management Company minutes ago as a follow up to the blog post here, and news stories statewide, over the matter concerning the apartment lease of Brittany Zimmerman and Jordan Gonnering. This should never have been needed to be resolved in the public way it was.  The fact that many people responded in the fashion they did when hearing this news is a sign that Madison has a heart and soul that reacts with strength and conviction for the needs and concerns of others.  I am damn proud of all who did their part to see this matter handled in a way that Jordan Gonnering requires so to move on with his healing.  This blog, and all my readers, send peace his way.

 

Press Release – For immediate release

Wisconsin Management Company, Inc. extends its deepest condolences to both the Zimmerman and Gonnering families. We regret how our statement on Friday was characterized. Wisconsin Management Company, Inc. takes great pride in our service and commitment to our residents. We felt it inappropriate, one week after the incident, to discuss the particulars of the lease situation until we had spoken to the families. We have since had the opportunity to speak with Jordan’s parents. After discussing what the family wanted, we have decided to release all parties from any lease obligations. Once the property is released by the police, we will do any cleaning or repairs that are necessary. We have also offered housing to Mr. Gonnering, which he will consider. Now that this situation is resolved, we hope people can focus on the actual tragedy and work towards healing and justice.
