Ranch Member, John Meredith, weighed in and stated Steinberg’s a “good guy” that was “goaded into this unfairly.” He further stated the board should “decline” Steinberg’s resignation.

President Harbour’s wife gave John Meredith a thumbs up for his comments.

Ranch Member, Onya Remer asked John Meredith to explain his goading remarks and apparently Meredith is basing his statements on gossip and rumors.

Director, Marie Carter called Steinberg a “generous” person and then the Board nominated and elected Director Bill Burt as the new Vice President.
