After reading the article and having been a chamber member for many years, I must say that I AM DONE WITH YOU INCOMPETENT LOSERS. This is the most arrogant board and president I have ever seen. What a waste of money!! From what I understand, the other applicant was not only local but much more in tune with what is going on around the region - not too mention older and hispanic. Hmmm, younger white guy.... Wow, it doesn't take a brain surgeon... Hoffman, Haws, Richards, Wood, Cheney, etc. etc. I guess the scale had no balance and the other guy had no chance. You all are FOOLS! I will be cancelling my membership ASAP.

So I just opened up my new business in LC last year. I was solicited by the marketing lady from the GLCCC to join. So I foolishly did. I never heard anything from that lady again. She got her number and her sale. No service after I bought the product. THEN, I find out that she was running a capitol campaign and all of our dues went to lavish parties then paid for a trip for this group to go ride in hot air ballons in Abq and have a nice weekend. WHAT A WASTE!!!

Come now! Did you not do your homework before opening a business in this town? This is nothing new. Corruption abounds. It is the good ole boy network at its finest. This is the "norm" for this town.

Hays, Kansas must really be an armpit for someone to turn it down for Las Cruces.

You're right Dejected! I to was sucked into a chamber membership by that same women and didn't get S*#T from her afterwards! No service. They are useless. I hope their trip to Abq we paid for was worth it! They hit their campaign goal and the rest of us paid for it. They only care about numbers! I'm out of here!!

I am reminded of several tidbits of wisdom growing up. one of which goes like this..
"he who is faithful in little will be faithful in much and he who is unfaithful in little will be Unfaithful in much"
This saying is a very TRUE one and i am ashamed to know that our GLCCC Board does not know this..
People, Cant you see that in order to SAVE the GLCCC from going backwards and LOSING membership,(i will not renew at the chamber if this clown is ALLOWED to lead here.) What the message here that the GLCCC is sending to all our precious business owners is (We will hire a liar and are comfortable with it because we are of a kindred spirit)
Do you really think righteous and upstanding men in Las Cruces will follow a man who will flip on you just as easily as he has demonstrated to others with deception, lies, and broken promises?? i suppose the next campaign the GLCCC will launch will be "GLCC, you can trust us!" "we are ALL about local business"! ahhaha oh wait, that is their mantra right? LOCAL LOCAL LOCAL...
HA what a hoot! that makes the GLCCC hypocrites.
Kiel Hoffman and the other 4 people who made this decision for over 1000 members without asking them better change course before the GLCCC gets shipwrecked with Kiel Hoffman starring the captain of a wrecked ship.
Kiel, you should resign, the new guy fired, and another (FAIR) local decision be made. This is the only way the GLCCC will "RETAIN" the members.
FACTS DON'T LIE!
Statements directed at the GLCCC Board.
Fact 1. you knew what he was up to . you admitted it.
Fact 2. you still hired him.
the GLCCC board is corrupt and needs some housecleaning if they are allowing unscrupulous persons to be leaders here and if they cut off the "snake head" on the board and make some better decisions about this new GLCCC leader position they just might save face enough to keep most of the current members.
Also, my prediction....
If he is hired,
1. he will still be looking for another job somewhere else than here.
2. He will spend the GLCCC money on projects that will not work here..
3. his lack of understanding of local culture will make his current bag of tricks useless
4. He will not serve out the entire commitment term and will leave us scrambling for another leader at the last minute.
If he is NOT hired..
1. GLCCC will redo the hiring process and stay local.
2. Kiel will or will not step down as our liar endorsing Chamber President.
3. membership numbers will remain about the same
4. I will still not renew my GLCCC membership if Kiel Hoffman,(our GLCCC leader) is still in leadership.
DONT HIRE A LIRE!!!!!!

Let's not besmirch Hays, KS because of an idiot like Bill Allen. He's the real armpit, not Hays nor Las Cruces.
