I would sit on this board, however they have to ask me. I am on a public official board now and could complement that. My first task would be to reign in the executive pay as the top brass makes much too much and is not the reason to pay him, but to pay no more than the Governor of California makes. I believe I signed a petition for that but do not know its fate. As a board member I would look at the entire set of books and see where cost cutting can come about as the times for some have a hard time to pay and it is these executives who with pay as much as they get do not deserve it.

With my stance, I know I would never get on that board. You can find me at the Senior Center on Monday mornings if you want to talk.
