The FACT Of The Matter

At the July 15, 2019 Regular BOD Meeting, John Stevens from Ranch Matters addressed the Ranch Board regarding defamatory statements made by Ranch Manager Judy Lapora to former Ranch Director Carol Orr.

According to Ms. Orr, Lapora told her that David Stangland and John Stevens are “DANGEROUS, CRAZY and TROUBLEMAKERS.”

Stevens asked the Board Members if any of them had any questions-No Reply. However, Ranch VP Stu Steinberg stated on the record, “…When Carl (Ranch President Carl Harbour) gets back, we’ll draft a letter, asking you, for your proof…”

To date, there have been No Letters, No Emails, No Phone Calls, No Interviews and No Request for Records-“PROOF.”

Perhaps, FACTS, the TRUTH is the real THREAT.

 

At the August 5 Work Session Meeting, there were two Agendas, one posted on the Ranch Website prior to the meeting and an amended Agenda distributed at the meeting.

Missing from the second Agenda and apparently pulled prior to the meeting,

RESOLUTION 2019-08-05-B, titled

“A Resolution to state public support for Judy Lapora Ranch Manager for Crooked River Ranch Club & Maintenance Association.”

The Resolution states in part: “
“…Judy Lapora has effectively managed all Ranch operations and Staff…”
“…Judy Lapora has shown exemplary performance in key aspects of her job responsibilities including but not limited to: personnel management, attendance, budget development and adherence, event support, accounting oversight, community relations, communications and documentation.”

It concludes by stating, “The Board of Directors unanimously expresses formal, public support for Judy Lapora in her at-will capacity as Ranch Manager, and extends gratitude to Judy for her unwavering professional attitude and diligent effort in fulfilling her job duties.”

Apparently the Board felt their time would be better spent drafting a Resolution promoting the Board’s public support for Ranch Manager Judy Lapora rather than performing some basic due diligence.
