Petition for the Removal of Directors at KOTOfm

To be delivered to San Miguel Education Fund Board of Directors

Petition Statement

We, members of KOTO pursuant to Article I, Section 1 of the By-Laws of the San Miguel Educational Fund (“SMEF”), petition for removal of Ray Farnsworth and Robert Allen as directors of SMEF and state: This petition is made pursuant to Article VI, Section 5 of the SMEF By-Laws, which allows removal of directors with or without cause upon proper petition and special election. For Matters surrounding the departure of Janice Zink.
There are currently 148 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

KOTO members believe that, in direct violation of the By-Law provisions, the SMEF board and KOTO’s executive director Dina Coates-Koebler, in meetings not properly noticed and improperly designated as executive sessions, voted to rewrite the job description of Janice Zink, a long-time and invaluable KOTO employee, to falsely classify her job as part time; to dramatically reduce Janice Zink’s compensation by approximately half; and to make this new job description and compensation reduction a “take it or leave it” offer.

In the opinion of KOTO members, these actions were improper and secretive, and the result has been the forced resignation of Janice Zink, causing incalculable and irreparable harm to KOTO.

KOTO members believe that, as the board president and the board secretary, respectively, Ray Farnsworth and Robert Allen are responsible for ensuring compliance with the SMEF By-Laws. In the opinion of KOTO members, their failure to ensure such compliance, and the making of these decisions in improper, secretive, so-called executive sessions, resulted in substantial harm to KOTO and its members, requiring their removal as directors.
