Or: It’s not so funny when the membership sues you….
It has been a remarkable movie, over the last 11 months, to watch Melanie and these board members as the tide of public understanding has risen all the way up to their ears. Early in this movie some of them laughed and made ridicule as, one by one, all the senior board members quit and employees walked away by the dozens. Whatever the origins of their various arrogance, the vessel on which their fate collided was our North Coast Co-op. Observing this eclectic crew, it was obvious that the underlying reason they personally felt comfortable with all the resources burning up on their watch was this simple fact: almost nobody attends these meetings more than twice. The membership is asleep. It’s true.
