Allow a real election!
This petition had 81 supporters
OB People's is an amazing member-owned vegetarian grocery store that anyone can join for $15 per year. However, the current board of directors is anti-democratic and has only allowed two members to run for two open seats on the board, despite a petition signed by 152 owners being delivered to them as provided by the bylaws.
The board has become insular and self-protecting, retaliating against workers and suppliers alike who have questioned management policies, and spending owners' money sending themselves on expensive trips around the world. They have also refused to prioritize and promote fully plant-based products in compliance with the bylaws.
In accordance with the democratic member control required by the bylaws and the California Cooperative Corporation Law, OB People's must cancel the psuedo-election currently being held, in which owners are only being allowed to vote for two candidates for two spots, and allow owners who have been nominated by petition to also be on the ballot.
