Ms. Huntsberry was not hired temporarily as programme techie.

The actiong director should have that programme figured out by now.

Dat's, I am with you, terrible president. There should be real embarrassment, however I sense at the table that there is no shame from the president on how he has brought the Agency down.

I will admit again "DAT"S you are correct. Waste of money for hiring grant writer. Huge mistake. More wasted money. I did not see it coming or happening but it did. I thought we had for once had the right person in place to do the grant writing.

The president loves control, he loves the micromanage which is totally not in by-laws. He has a key to the building that has not been turned in. I asked around, no board member has ever had a key to the Agency. And yet we have sat back and allowed it all to happen.

The lost money, it's gone for good I think.

When does it stop? I believe when the President is removed from his position and than removed permanently off the board.

Making a plea with the President to please don't tamper with resumes. Please for once act with a small dose of integrity.
We should not have a hiring committee, however the entire board should be involved with the entire hiring of a director. The entire board should have a look of all resumes.
Board members should demand to see all resumes. It was late however the truth was revealed. The president hid, destroyed, or just did not present to the board the last time. Wake up board members and don't continue to allow one board member to make us all look bad.
Agency and seniors deserve better.

Where does your mom live? It is part of the supervisors job to make sure the drivers are passing the shorts route. If the first driver quit it must be they had something to hide. There is absolutely NO reason or excuse for the meal to be delievered that late. I can also say things look to be heading in the right direction. Finally have Dircetor that is caring and willing to make the changes that has been needing to be done to move forward!Please contact your local VCOA office and ask why the meal is so late.

I'm interested in knowing if the problem with the funding (grants) ever got straightened out. Has the funding been reinstated, and if so, does it apply retroactively?

If no one knows, but may have information on who to contact regarding this issue (and others of a similar nature), please post it.

Our elderly deserve to know that something like what occurred has been or is being addressed. They also deserve to be reassured that it won't happen again. They're basically voiceless and are often at the mercy of others at these agencies, and sadly, some could care less how these people (our elderly) are affected by a mistake like the one that occurred in this instance-a colossal, inexcusable oversight that deserved some sort of reprimand (at a minimum, a suspension, IMHO).

This topic should not simply die. Until we are informed if this was ever addressed and are told the outcome of what occurred, I for one, will continue to inquire periodically.

Other than knowing that I too will grow old one day and may be in a similar position that some of our elderly were put in because of what occurred, I have no vested interest in this. And if you readers pause for a moment and think about it in that light, I think you'll realize that the only thing separating you from a similar experience is.....time.
