“DOG $ PONY SHOW”

“DOG $ PONY SHOW”

Wednesday, 02/14/24, there will be a Budget Audit Committee (BAC) Meeting at 10:00 a.m. in the Juniper Room. The meeting will be Chaired by Herb Parker, a 15 year veteran of the BAC.

BAC’S ROLE/RESPONSIBILITIES:

According to the Ranch Policy & Procedures Handbook

.

“The role of the BAC is to provide both an operating and capital expenditure budget to the Board for its review and adoption. In addition, the BAC makes recommendations concerning the funding of the Capital Reserve Plan (CRP) to the Board for review and adoption. The BAC, based on the findings, shall recommend to the Board the amount they feel should be transferred to the CRP during the next fiscal year.”

.

Lucky for the Ranch homeowners,

BAC Chair Herb Parker has provided a simplified translation of the above:

“DOG & PONY SHOW.”

The Chairman of the BAC “gives a dog and pony show for the people on the Ranch…”

(10/16/23)

As reported in Ranch Matters (RM) story, “GANG REPORT”, published last October, Parker admitted he has no financial background and added:

.

“I DON’T KNOW A DEBIT FROM A CREDIT.”

.

15 YEAR VET OF BAC?

.

Our report included Parker referring to RM as a “GANG” along with residents Michelle Parcel, Carol Orr and another lady. More recently, he called resident Carol Orr a “KAREN” based on her Letter to the Editor, published by the Madras Pioneer regarding the cancelling of the Steel Stampede Event.

NAME CALLING by a Ranch Official?

Anyone attending the BAC meeting best be careful asking Parker any questions. In a recent social media post/thread, he got upset with one of the members comments and stated:

.

“… You are very misinformed. SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED TO MOVE.”

.

WHO SHOULD MOVE?

.

Parker doesn’t know a “DEBIT FROM A CREDIT”, has an admitted limited financial background and oversees the budgeting process of a multi-million dollar organization?

Strap in, it’s time for another
