At the end of August, McHenry County Blog published a letter from long-time local physician, Bill Dam.
Dam was brought in to clean up the Fox Waterway Agency and the Village of Fox Lake when officials ran afoul of the law. He subsequently served as a Republican State Central Committeeman.
Dam’s letter announced a 7 PM meeting on September 25th at Crystal Lake’s Holiday Inn to discuss
- administrative salaries
- pending lawsuits
- by-law changes without membership notice or consent
- the process of becoming a member
- the process for nominating candidates for the Board of Governors
A list of administrative salaries from 2010, as reported to IRS in a report (Form 990) that not-for-profit corporations file, was included with Dam’s letter.
In response, Centegra’s Board of Directors sent a letter about two weeks later to members who elect the Board members at an annual meeting urging people not to attend Dam’s meeting.
Dr. Dam commented under the Centegra letter urging people not to attend his meeting with the following comment:
The letter from Centegra telling people not to attend the Wednesday 25th meeting underscores the very reason why this meeting should be held.
The meeting is not about hospitalists.
Personally, I embrace the concept.
I use hospitalists to help coordinate the care of all my patient admissions, every time, everywhere.
The problem is that there is no effective communication with the administration.
The reason for the meeting, as a 35 year member of the Centegra Community Corporation, is that I want my vote to count once again.
The Community Corporation membership has been essentially hijacked.
I did mission work for 2 years in a socialist country.
At election time there was only one hand-picked candidate.
Everyone was required to take a day off work to vote “yes.”
This is not how it works in America.
Learn about this and more.
At first I invited fellow Corporation members.
Now, since this is supposed to be an organization of “Community Governors” I would like to invite all interested members of the community.
