As probably everyone reading this blog knows, for a few years now I have been standing in regular opposition to the all too frequent unethical and shamefully shameless behaviour of most of the currently sitting GFA board of directors. And, I have certainly taken my share of heat for having the "temerity" to simply stand up in a distinct numerical minority and in a clear and fearless voice just say;
But, this does not make me perfect, nor even always correct.
The largest error I have made in my efforts to simply bring genuine transparency and accountability to the board for the benefit of the entire Goodnow Flow Association and Community has been my sometimes overly self-certain nature. I was previously certain all decent-minded people would definitely be as outraged as I am, and this unjustified self-certainty of mine regrettably allowed my commentary to become overly acerbic at times. But because only a very few GFC Members know of the absolutely most vile and detestable things which some members of the board and their committee members have done and said to me, the outrage I have experienced at their outrageousness was unfortunately lost in translation.
Too many people around our Flow very understandably read my poorly expressed outrage as anger, when I felt and feel no anger toward anyone on the board, nor even on our Flow. My disgusted outrage at the repeated antics, particularly of our immediate past "president", was understandably misinterpreted by some as unhinged rage. And for this miscommunication, I take full responsibility and proffer my sincerest apologies, while assuring all that I have learned from this error of mine.
But please allow me to be clear that my earlier outraged and acerbic tone is all which I apologize for regarding my statements about the board. For simply telling the truth; for simply exposing the board's refusal to even ask their supporters to stop stealing my personal property; for putting their thundering arrogance and revolting hypocrisy on full display for all to consider; for simply being appalled that the immediate past "president" willingly participated in a blatant violation of the laws of NYS by a GFA Member who was not even possessed of sufficient courage to sign their name (nor even subsequently apologize for) when they 100% illegally defamed me at the 2019 AGM ; for these acts of genuinely gross misconduct by the board and for so many more that I have literally lost count, I offer absolutely no apology -- instead, I only repeat my plea;
