Fight the Deck appointment to Jumbo
Like many Basin residents, I find the appointment of Greg Deck as both the chairman of the Columbia Basin Trust and the mayor of Jumbo Resort Municipality offensive and a conflict of interest.
Existing directors of the Columbia Basin Trust made the decision to accept Deck’s dual appointment demonstrating their support for the Jumbo resort municipality and disregard for the wishes of thousands of residents of the Columbia Basin.
It is clear the Columbia Basin Trust has strayed far from the grassroots, community driven organization promised by its founding directors. To allow the mayor of Jumbo resort municipality to sit as chairman of the board of the Columbia Basin Trust demonstrates that the Trust is not a grassroots organization, nor is it community driven. Were this so, we wouldn’t have this reprehensible appointment and directors of the Trust would have stood up and shown some backbone instead of being lapdogs of our current provincial Liberal government.
Instead of serving residents of the basin, it would appear the Columbia Basin Trust and its directors serve themselves at considerable cost to residents.
If you feel like me and thousands of other basin residents, why not sign our petition to have Deck removed from the board of CBT. You can do so at this web addess: change.org/petitions/columbia-basin-trust-remove-greg-deck-as-the-chairman-of-the-board-of-columbia-basin-trust. Send the message that this is wrong.
