IF he was "cooking the books" why isn't he charged with a crime and was just fired/let go?? Maybe they don't want all that money back?

That is RIDICULOUS! NO BOD would ask anyone to "cook the books", how do you think they became reputable in our community? by lying, cheating and stealing from the poor?

And Bill Clinton did not get a B job in the white house. Bernard Madoff was an honest guy. He would never take money. SUCKERS. It will look bad if they have Fox him arrested. They just want to cover it up.

Ron fox would not steal from open door. He is a great man and he and his family was let go for no reason. They were with the mission for many years and will continue to be with the mission I believe.

The board is not telling the entire story. I really don't think they can separate the truth from the lies. I have been a long time donor and volunteer at the Open Door Mission. Living according to my faith I cannot continue to support the Open Door. Ron did not resign, there was no reason to put his wife on sabbatical with him, or to strip his mother of her title. This board of directors appears to operate from the world instead of the laws of the bible. I will continue to pray for the Fox family and hope the BOD will come to Jesus and accept him as their Savior. Maybe then they will be able to get the act together. Pray for the staff that choose to remain loyal to the ministry.

I was referring to a number of people on a Board, NOT one person, that response was just as ridiculous as the original!

They get lots of money at Christmas. Is it all accounted for? He needs to be arrested if theft is involved. I am sick of nonprofit organizations. They suck, The United Way, Red Cross and all the rest are crooks. The management at these organizations milk it. We have the ESL Sports Center that is now bankrupt. Where is the millions of dollars owed to the County? Where is the President of the ESL Sports Center? Gone with the money. He left.

Yes there is accounting of all financials by a outside accounting agency and are available if you ask. I would never accuse the Fox family of such. There needs to be more investigation on this story mainly dealing with 90 percent of the supervisors let go by the board of directors over the last few months. My question is why the president of the boards company doing all the planning to build the new construction and all the concept drawings for the new fundraising campaign.... The board thinks they don't have to be accountable to anyone...

Ron built the mission back to where it was after his dads departure not a small feat by any standard. Those who say he was cooking the books had better be careful before they speak he is one of these men who devoted his life and sacrificed to do what others wouldn't...

Maybe due to economic woes they needed to trim the fat the fox family each lived in Beautiful tax free homes wrote off as church rectories and drove very nice company cars paid for by the mission and were given very nice salaries for operating as nothing more than figure heads for this company. Yes this is a company under the guise as a church not a non-profit organization.
