The former President of the Credit Union stepping down to a regular board position had nothing to do with Dawne's criminal actions. Dawne had been doing this for a few years, under more than one President. No second gunman in the grassy knoll here.
While that sounds good it would indicate that the past presidnent(s) didn't do their job as I would understand the responsibilities of such a position. That is what you get when you have friends, neighbors,and or relatives working side by side. The same lack of discipline and oversight could be said for the emoloyment of such within the city of Deer Park.

Some say she acted alone, but failure to do reasonable audits was/is a reason to conisder that she had plenty of help even though it was not perhaps direct assistance. Opinion would point to such consideration.

failure to do reasonable audits
State law requires credit unions to be audited annually, by a licensee of the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy or as permitted under the provisions of 741.202(a) of the National Credit Union Administration's Rules and Regulations (12 CFR, Chapter VII, Part 741).

Texas State Law:

National Credit Union Administration's Rules and Regulations:

Drill down to minimum NCUA requirements for the smallest CU's:
http://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/12/715/7

(c) Audit per Supervisory Committee Guide. An audit performed by the supervisory committee, its internal auditor, or any other qualified person (such as a certified public accountant, public accountant, league auditor, credit union auditor consultant, retired financial institutions examiner, etc.) in accordance with the procedures prescribed in NCUA's Supervisory Committee Guide. Qualified persons who are not State-licensed cannot provide assurance services under this subsection.

Summary:
This concludes that a yearly audit is required to be conducted by a state-licensed individual.

Although it might be possible, it's unlikely that any of the directors were personally conducting audits.

So, if there is someone else that might also be held responsible, it only raises a couple of other questions.

Were the annual audits being conducted, as mandated by state law?
If not, then the directors might be held accountable for failure to ensure such compliance or...
If the audits were conducted and showed unexplained or questionable losses, if investigations were not immediately undertaken to resolve such questions, the directors might be held responsible.

If the audits were conducted, who was/were the state licensed individual(s) that put their name(s) on the audit and vouched for the accuracy, any discrepancies or lack thereof?

The link to the Texas laws appear to contain characters incompatible with Topix. You'll have to copy and string together the various parts, by removing the spaces, in order to view the reference.

The audits, of course, were performed by an outside state licensed examiner for the Federal Credit Union Association, not by a board member.

This was addressed already, board members are elected by the members, and are members themselves, there for of course they are employees. However, for some reason you see Deer Park as a "Bubba Republic" everyone knows everyone, everyone is sleeping with someone, everyone is related.... that is such BS. Not every city employee is related, very few are. Yes many are friends, but I would hope most coworkers could be friends no matter where they work. There is no sin in that. Board members have always be responsible people that take their job seriously. A thief can cover their tracks very well, until finally the web of deceit is revealed.

Having worked in the banking business I can say such theft should have been discovered way before it was or from when it appears to have been discovered. Your comment of the "Bubba Republic" would truly explain why it lingered for so long without a whistle blower. One cannot be friends with those who they supervise or you have a lack of discipline and open the door for such temptation and once started it continues to grow. A thief can cover their tracks well as long as they are allowed to under your "Bubba Republic" strictly because a lack of respect and responsibility.

Frequent trips to Vegas, from what has been mentioned, would be a sure sign of the need to do a complete audit. While such vacations would be normal, the frequency should have sent up red flags that someone had a serious addiction and access to money would only heighten the alarm. I also agree that the husband and perhaps even the adult children should have known that an addiction was occurring with the frequency that has been mentioned by close friends and or family. Surely a lack of professionalism helped the accused hide her actions. Chalk one up for the "Bubba Republic".

You want to add your two cents because you are still bitter about the Deer Feeder. The owners were rude and the food sucked. Move on!

He doesn't work at the golf course. He works for a landscaping and maintenance company that several golf courses, including Battleground, use as contract work.

"Seems to me that having city employees on the board of this credit union would create some issues especially since the city has already addressed nepotism as being rampant in the city employment. Perhaps the CU had the foxes watching the hen house. Now one can see the danger in having such an open policy of hiring family, relatives, and or friends (nepotism) especially in such a small community/city government."

In order to be a member of the credit union, you have to be a CITY employee, family member of a CITY employee, a CITY retiree or a member of the CITY fire department. Who else is going to make up the board, brainiac?
