Where is Waldo?

It is fair to say that under current business environment, corporate accountability and transparency are extremely important, and corporate officers and legal counsel stay as far away as possible from anything that could be construed as conflict of interest or unethical – more so for non-for-profit corporations.

So, what can we say about a non-for profit corporation responsible for the disbursement of $9,000,000.00 per year, so enamored with secrecy that they demand, as a condition for volunteers to join any committee that they agree to abide by a confidentiality agreement?

Particularly for committees such as the landscape and public safety committees, which combined spend close to 80% of the total yearly budget – yet are prohibited to even discuss details with the rest of the shareholders?

This attitude mostly resembles that of the Chinese government intent on keeping a lid (different lid from that used by Varo/Mezger/Hill) on dissention by encouraging kids to rat on their parents – the ultimate shareholders!

We do not make jokes, we simply watch the Coto de Caza Board of directors, the LA Trash and the Orange Crud Repository and report the facts
