The Day has come, Madam President.

Madam Presidents favorite little jingle goes something like this:
.....Delay, procrastinate; procrastinate, delay
.....
If I stall them long enough, maybe they,
.....
(And all their questions) will just go away!
Alas, MP, its not going to happen.

Remember the last general meeting? Remember your words?
“There will be a treasurers report in 2 weeks”
Guess what? Two week have gone by! (Amazing isn’t it how fast times flies!)
Just think, its been 16 months (a calendar year and quarter and month!) since there has been a public treasurers report. But now, we member are going to get the facts.

Should I sit by my mailbox waiting for the delivery?
Do you think I will be disappointed?

Did you know that MP shared (with some members) some paperwork on NOV1st--that perportated to be the treasurers report?
(Which reminds me to ask; JUST WHAT WAS THE PRESIDENT DOING?
Isn’t a TREAURERS REPORT, by DEFINATION, prepared by the TREASURER?)

And here we are 24 days later, (16 month later), still waiting?
(always, later, alway, not now, but soon; alway delay.
Delay, delay, till the questions go away)

What are we waiting for?
If there is NOTHING TO HIDE, then show us the money!
After all it is OUR MONEY, not Madam Presidents.
And it’s sure not being spend on our behalf.
Its not going to members programs
Its not being spent on printing an mailing the CityPurls.
Its not working to make the BAKG a better organization.
Just what is being done with our money? And who is doing it?

If you won't say, this Pip has to wonder WHY?

I think it's probably too late for a financial statement.
Producing a financial statement would expose the president for who she really is.
There may be nothing left in the treasury.
Stall tactics are used to wear down the members who will just give up and/or drop out.
How desperate can one person be to skim the treasury.
We pay our dues so we can connect with other knitters, knit and enjoy our programs.
And not to subsidize the presidents income.
