In an e-mail to me dated July 27, 2019, (copies preserved) currently sitting GFA 'president' Mr. Fibiger admitted the following to me:
"The bylaws are, at this time, the only document that describes the "workings" of the Goodnow Flow."
Mr. Fibiger was correct at the time, and remains correct now. The only "authority" the currently sitting GFA board of directors has is that which is codified in our bylaws. All GFA Members are subject to our bylaws.
Here's an unedited screenshot of part of our bylaws (red underlining for emphasis):
In jurisprudence, a natural person is a person that is an individual human being, as opposed to a juridical person or entity, which may be a private or public organization. In the simplest terms possible you and I are natural persons. The Goodnow Flow Association, Inc., for example, is not. ONLY a natural person owning a lot on our Flow is allowed to be a Member of the GFA. The "natural person(s)" standard is realistically only applicable to Voting Members, not to Associate Members. Lots owned by anything other than a natural person(s) should presumably be classified as owned by non-voting Associate Members and still pay dues, since all lot owners are presently required to do so (a concept I personally agree with). https://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/natural+person
Here's another unedited screenshot of another part of our bylaws (my underlining for emphasis):
To serve on the GFA board, one must be a Voting Member of the GFA. Again, as outlined above, ONLY natural persons are allowed to be GFA Members.
Here's an unedited screenshot taken from the Essex County Real Property website (underlining for emphasis. the red lines indicates the registered owner, the blue lines indicate only the mailing address for the bills associated with this piece of property):
I have redacted certain mailing and billing information to preserve Mr. Fibiger's privacy. Essex County clearly demonstrates that the lot which the currently sitting GFA board incorrectly attributes to Mr. Fibiger is not in any way owned by Mr. Fibiger. At best, Mr. Fibiger can be seen as a guest of the true owner; namely, Fenster-Fibiger Trust. Obviously, a trust is not a natural person as required in our bylaws, and therefore is not eligible to be a Member of the GFA.
IMHO, Mr. Fibiger does not and cannot belong to the GFA because they do not directly as a natural person own a lot on our Flow. IMHO, William Wesley Fibiger has been passing themself off as the 'president' of the Goodnow Flow Association for several years now on a wholly illicit standing. IMHO, the GFA nominating committee, chaired by Director Suzanne Gold, has repeatedly put forward for years now a single "candidate" for the presidency of the GFA whom they either did or should have known was completely ineligible to hold any post on the GFA board of directors. As I have repeatedly stated in the past, our bylaws are woefully inadequate and in desperate need of updating - especially now that we and our descendants are in debt for literally millions of dollars.
