And I have heard that Craig Lammers has denied any knowledge of wrongdoing. How can you be the Executive Director and not know this type of thing was going on? His own Operations Director, Eric Jaegers, is supposedly George's Campaign Manager.
On another note, has George severed all business relationship with the YMCA, or did he merely change offices....I thought he was getting paid...
One more item to make this even more outrageous - The Operations Director at the YMCA is apparently George's campaign manager.....I bet they are busy all day working on YMCA-related issues!
Seems to me that the gift of a corporate office and a car (allegedly) would be at least a violation of the fiduciary responsibility of the BOD. If these sort of allegations are true, I do believe the Board may be at risk of a lawsuit by a group of YMCA members.
Realistically, if the BOD is to have the ability to partition and gift away parts of the facility, then why not just go ahead and give the remainder of the YMCA to George and be done with it.
I believe that what has allegedly occurred is a violation of federal tax law, and the YMCA tax-exempt status is indeed at risk with these sorts of activities.
