Default Campaign Issues:

Campaign Issue Name: Stan Booz

Sam Sloan said:
"I feel and many others feel that Stan Booz should have immediately
been removed from his positions. Kindly explain why you feel
otherwise."

George John said:
"As is typically the case, Sam Sloan has reached an incorrect
conclusion
about what I think. I do not think it would be okay for a committee
chair to refer to a board member in this manner"

Here are the relevant motions as to what to do about Stan:

EB 05-33 (Hanke): The EB will send a letter to the CO-chair of the
Finance Committee Stan Booz asking him to cease and desist from
personal attacks on the Internet. PASSED 3-1-3. In favor: Bauer, Brady,

Schultz; Opposed: Shaughnessy; Abstaining: Marinello, Shutt and Hanke.

EB 05-33 (Reconsidered) - The EB will send a letter to the CO-chair of
the
Finance Committee Stan Booz asking him to cease and desist from
personal attacks on the Internet. FAILED 3-3-1. In Favor: Schultz.
Brady and Bauer; Opposed: Marinello, Shaughnessy and Hanke; Abstaining:
Shutt.

George John: George says a private phone call to Stan admonishing him
would be a better course of action than firing Stan or passing the
motion above. George, you are right that is an appropriate first step.
In fact however, that took place months ago. The result was a phone
call from Stan to me where he gave an unconditional apology and a
promise to mend his ways.

Since your recommended action of a phone call failed, what action or
non-action do you George, intend to take, if elected to the EB, on the
Stan Booz Issue.

I guess in my priorities for the USCF, this barely deserved the attention it
required in a past Board meeting. It sure doesn't rise to the level of
important election issue.

The things I think are important for the USCF are finishing the relocation,
hiring a competent executive director and giving him the tools he and the staff
need to improve customer service, building the membership and enhancing
strategic partnerships with other organizations and corporations. And, of
course, developing and living within a credible budget and maintaining USCFs
financial position.

Take your pick, folks, which set of issues do you think are more important?

Here are the relevant motions as to what to do about Stan:

1) Get him really drunk.
2) Bring in the male hooker.
3) Take lots of digital photos.

Works every time. Mouth shuts, problem is solved.

That issue is a strawman issue. A better issue would be why doesn't Bill
Goichberg accept responsibility for another looming Truong & Co. lawsuit.

Sorry I don't hook anymore. But I might make an exception for your wife.

I amnot aware of Truong actually threatening to sue and I do not
believe that he can.

This isn't exactly what I said, but I'm too happy with the Rockets win
over Miami to quarrel with this right now. ;-)

George, you are right that is an appropriate first step.

Good to hear.

the
Stan Booz Issue.


I will paraphrase what I have said previously.

1) The USCF Executive Board would most likely benefit from a written
code of conduct for its executive board advisory committee members.
(Note: the EB would also benefit from doing a better job of following
its own code of conduct).

2) Any discussion of EB advisory committee members should be done in
closed session only.

3) The only action that I think is appropriate in open session is to
vote on committee member assignments.

We need written guidelines that can be fairly applied to all. If you
are having problems with EB advisory committee members, deal with it in
closed session please.

Best regards,

George John

Is Polgar Foundation owed money? That's one relevant question. How USCF
treats creditors is another. Phil Innes
