The members of Corona Community Ambulance Corps, are seeking a pro-bono attorney to assist us in removing the current president and administration of the organization.
I can try and elaborate as to what is going.
The agency went through a scandal where the previous administration embezzled a lot of money, and the president at that time was desperate and went to the community board and asked for help, and local business
man (Albert Perna) said I can help, but I have to be in charge, the president agreed to that, and brought him in, we are unaware as to what agreement was made, but he took over and slowly started just throwing people out, including the former president who was chief of operations at this time.
He illegally changed the bylaws
, and took the membership away from the members, has not provided the members with any direction, no bylaws, no standard operating procedures. He got wind of us wanting to remove him and is now on a witch hunt and investigating members involved for petty things.
The board of directors
are all of his friends and are not members, he has no administration, no vice president, no treasurer, just him, he makes all the decisions.
We had a meeting last night and presented the board of directors with the complaint package and the lawyers, we aren’t sure if it’s the presidents lawyers or the corps lawyers, but they took the package and said the board will be investigating the complaint, but what we don’t understand is that the board is being brought up on charges also, so how can they investigate it?
We were blocked by the lawyers and they kept mentioning the whistleblower policy, which was never explained at the meeting but then they sent us a copy of the policy,and it still isnt clear.
I can elaborate more on the phone or in person, but I will attach all the documents that we have, including a charge package that we put together with all the violations
