Remove President due to pending financial crisis

This petition made change with 36 supporters!

The President of the Windsor Day Care Society has shown poor diligence in adequate fiscal responsibility of the daycare and in protecting the public reputation of the daycare.

Update May 14: An additional request for a public statement of the resignation is included in the email letter.

As per the daycare Society's effective bylaws (1976), parents enrolled at the daycare are members of the Society. A petition with 25% of those members' signatures forces the Board to call a special meeting. However, as the current Board does not recognize these bylaws or the membership rights of parents, this petition is to offer both parents AND the community an opportunity to add their voice.

Several years ago the President of the Board of Directors and the Town of Windsor agreed upon a financial arrangement for purchase of the land to build the daycare's new facility. Due to the President's neglect of that financial arrangement, the Town is now forced to pursue other means of payment. This has created an immediate potential crisis for the daycare as it faces a loss of real estate equity as well as significantly increased taxes.

We request the resignation of the current President, Leslie Porter, to be effective immediately or before May 19.

Town Council will decide whether or not to approve their proposed bylaw amendment at their meeting on May 26, and we believe that the Town would consider postponing their decision with a new team in place. 

With a new team on the Board, we are confident that an appropriate resolution to the daycare's financial sustainability and public reputation can be made.

If Leslie Porter is removed, the board must appoint a temporary Chair from the membership to serve until the AGM on June 15, at which time nominations for new members can proceed.
