Report of the Executive Director at the October 8, 2015 Board of Trustees Meeting
Thank you Mr. Chair,
I have three items I would like to present this evening.First, I would like to address a comment made by Mr. Adolphus Pruitt regarding the Board of Trustees. He stated that because the Board of Trustees was not interested and refused to discuss his issues, he had decided to escalate his actions, including actions against the Board members and their business clients.
So the public can be fully aware of the situation, let me review the facts surrounding this statement. On May 14, 2015, Mr. Pruitt sent a letter to the Board of Trustees which included 28 allegations and statements against MSD. He requested that the Board of Trustees attend the next Oversight Committee meeting or subsequent meeting to discuss these issues.
On May 22, MSD sent a letter confirming receipt of his letter, acknowledging the start of the 60 day cure period as provided for in the CBA agreement, and committed to having Board members attend this next meeting.
