To the Editor:

How many of you who are not self employed are given the luxury of working the hours of the day and the days of the week of your choosing? How many of you that are ­not self employed consider yourself to be a “full time”  employee when you are at your employer’s place of business 20 hours per week or less? If you were a customer of the aforementioned Business, would it be frustrating if the person in question titled the  “Executive Director” was seldom available to you the customer?  Would you be upset if this “Executive” was being compensated with not only your donated money but with  “Taxpayer” funds also with all of the above being said?

A 501c3 Non-profit is required to have a board of directors. The board of directors is a group of individuals who are elected or appointed to govern and oversee the organization’s operations. The board is responsible for setting the organizations mission, strategy and goals and ensuring that the organization operates in compliance with legal and ethical standards.

In this writer’s opinion it appears to me that there is a serious case of the “Tail wagging the dog” at the BCHS and it has been going on for far too long.

I would like to believe that the Board Of Directors would be ecstatic to see  organizations like Alley Cat Spay and Neuter Mission and Dakota Dog Rescue Services step up to the plate to offer their FREE services to Huron and the surrounding communities when it comes to to animal welfare.  

Apparently they are not and support the behavior and actions of their “Executive Director.” For the benefit of the animals, the community and its citizens maybe it is time for a change of leadership at the BCHS?
