No surprise Randy. These people promised to have a
Board election last summer....never happened. All
paid personnel are self-appointed and set their own
stipends/salaries........claiming to represent the
"grassroots" but unwilling to democratize the
movement. These are good people, well motivated, but
self-appointed and potentially, self-serving. The PPC
has challenged them tactfully on this and their
response was mainly to try to "buy some of us off"
with promises of undemocratic appointments to various
"advisory groups" et al...... This is constructive
criticism but no condemnation.
