I must admit it never occurred to me that the B of D and the Management of Lincoln County Humane Society would be so completely and utterly foolish as they have been this evening. Having been handed a golden opportunity to garner some good will within the community, they chose to further alienate the very public on whom they depend for support. Incredible! I truly do not believe that anyone could have orchestrated a more profound example of complete and utter incompetence than that which took place this evening. Incredible! The Board of Directors and Management of LCHS have publicly slapped dozens of potential supporters across the face by “deferring” their membership applications once again and in turn have displayed a total disregard for the lives of the animals for whom they are supposed to be the caretakers. This is a new low even for the B of D and Management of LCHS. INCREDIBLE!
A couple of highlights, during the debate regarding passing a motion to accept the applicants’ as members, Joe Kushner states “I have some concerns with one of the names in the list”. When asked who that might be, he can’t recall the name. When pushed further, he did not wish to state publicly the person with whom he had issues.Then Tom Manney suggested that Kushner should then vote in favour of the remainder of the applicants. NO WAY! Joe Kushner who was introduced as the City Council representative on the LCHS Board of Directors voted against the motion. NOTE: Representatives of Council on the Board of Directors, DO NOT HAVE A VOTE! Also voting against the motion were Christine Probst. Remember her? She is one of the four Directors who had not renewed their own memberships in LCHS and as a result were not in compliance with the ByLaws in order to maintain their positions as Directors but had their memberships renewed at the secret meeting held prior to the AGM (that didn’t happen). Not only did she vote against the applicants tonight but she was able to sneak some friends and relatives applications for membership renewals by this evening. Nice!
Then there is steady Eddie Klassen, the Membership Chairman, who still has not brought a single membership applicant to the table and yet voted against all of the applicants this evening, with the exception of Chrissie Probst family and friends. Understandably, Eddie must be exhausted from spending so many hours of vetting and carrying out DUE DILIGENCE, not.
And the fourth vote against approving the membership applications goes to………President, Ann Davidson! Yep, the President who according to the ByLaws is not the President or even a director as she too was not responsible enough to maintain her own membership but what the hell, just renewed it at the secret meeting prior to the AGM (that wasn’t). Oh and for pete’s sake don’t let a little thing like the fact the President does not have a vote unless their is a tie be a problem for you, just vote anyway AGAINST the applicants. You see there was not a tie vote because Kushner doesn’t have a vote.
For the motion: Manny, Pang, Sgambati
Against the motion: Probst, Klassen
Kushner does not have a vote as council Rep. Davidson only has a vote in the event of a tie.
WHY was the motion carried? INCREDIBLE!
Don’t believe me? Come on, no one can make up this stuff. here’s the article
