    I am totally for succession planning and change, but i pose one question to the group who have used a very hostile tactic to essentially take over the current board and the community organisation. How can two members who have never sat on this board and one member who has, but was removed due to misconduct, run for complete controlling positions of this organisations?

      Totally irrelevant that “two members who have never sat on this board and one member who has, but was removed due to misconduct, run for complete controlling positions of this organisations?”
      The two you refer to have more than adequate experience.

      Robert Brender I think you should check the accuracy of what you post in regards to the Board stating a person has been removed for “misconduct”.

      Your comments could be slanderous

      Former board member of Sydney’s Montefiore Home Gabby Berger has responded to a reference to him being dismissed from the Board for “misconduct” being featured in a circular sent to the Home’s members.

      Gabby Berger writes:

      Dear Community,
      I have nominated as a candidate for the Monte Board. Many of you will know that I was a previous Monte Board member. You will know this because there is an outrageous letter that the Monte has just circulated stating that I was removed for “misconduct”. This is totally untrue and defamatory.

      I was removed because I had the audacity to challenge the President and Executive regarding Monte’s accounting and corporate governance practices, by issuing a full and frank written assessment to the Board.

      Clearly some members of the Board took exception to my criticisms. If fulfilling my responsibilities as a conscientious Director constitutes misconduct then so be it.

      However, I am assured by lawyers whom I respect that the suggestion of “misconduct” is ludicrous.

      Furthermore, Monte’s letter omitted the fact that I have worked as a Gabbai every Shabbat and Yom Tov at the Monte Randwick Shule, for the past 5 years, for which I recently received an award from the Monte.

      Those responsible for that letter should be ashamed of themselves.
