ATTENTION: MR. RICHARD ABBEY CHAIRMAN OF THE GRIEVANCE COMMITTEE
Dear Mr. Abbey,
I am in receipt of your correspondence about my grievance charge against Curtis Karpel for misconduct. In your January 5, 2018 correspondence you state that I filed the charge against Karpel from an alleged violation of Article VI (G) of the Club’s By-laws. Karpel confessed, a confession is not an allegation? Despite his admission of "wrongdoing" you are rejecting my charge for the second time stating the following;
“The decision of which you complain was made by the Board of Governors, Mr. Karpel is but one of nine members of the Board of Governors. As we found previously, the action of a group, the Board of Governors, is not covered by Article XIV”.
I have read ARTICLE XIV and found no reference as to your above version. What is shocking is that the board and their decibels, of which you are one, believe in such a repugnant elite status and live by it. You have confirmed “WE ARE THE BOARD AND CAN DO ANYTHING WE WANT”. The membership will finally be aware of the existence of such repulsive acts by the board, for the board and their hosts. That makes the entire AD HOCK committee bylaw re-write a sham and is another signal that we must rid ourselves of all of the bylaws and start from scratch. By laws must be written by the members and for the members.
Karpel’s violations of ARTICLE VI (G) is not an allegation, he confessed to the membership, at the meeting on November 17th 2017. You, the chair of the grievance committee, gave him a free get “out of jail card” for his "MISCONDUCT", that is more confirmation of the Boards "Pay To Tribute". I was found guilty for sponsoring a website that was adjudicated as being within my civil rights by the WIPO. I ended the hearing with a 1 year suspension? Donald Snyder a grievance committee member calling me an “asshole” during my questioning of Karpel received a free get “out of jail card” . Snyder was not charged with "misconduct". Jeffrey Smith received a 4 week suspension for posting a four letter word. You rejected Judith Silvers grievance charge brought by the Rosenberg’s for damaging several of their cars using a hammer in her temper tantrum, she received a free get “out of jail card”. A payoff to Sid Silvers elite status. All of the forgoing adds more buttress to our argument that Delaire selectively discriminated against me and others, is a continued show of bad faith. Perhaps that and the fact of you confirming that the board is engaged in the feeling that the BOARD CAN DO EVERYTHING IT PLEASES MEMBERS RIGHTS ASIDE is a positive at the end of the day, similar as your May 30th 2017 letter turned out to be a positive in our Brecker v. Delaire litigation.
What will the Jury think? What are our members thinking? Those that are not graced with the elite status, that is the question?
