TWHBEA MEMBER CALLS OUT SR. VP SIR WALT CHISM ON CHISM’S ARROGANT “LET’S (ME) BE CLEAR” REPLY TO HER TO HER QUESTION – “Why Are YOU Preventing the California Member From Voting By Secret Mail In Ballots?”

LEWISBURG, TN – A nice lady from Idaho is politely calling out and publicly dissecting King Steve Smith’s “Straw Boss” TWHBEA Sr. VP  Sir Walt Chism in a public exchange of emails over why King Steve Smith and Sir Walt Chism are oppressing the California TWHBEA members and won’t let them use a  50 cent stamp to vote on Christy Lantis removal from office.

SIR  WALT CHISM -TWHBEA SR. VICE PRESIDENT - IN CHARGE OF DAY TO DAY OPERATIONS

SIR WALT CHISM -TWHBEA SR. VICE PRESIDENT – IN CHARGE OF DAY TO DAY OPERATIONS

She asks Sir Walt Chism a simple question:

“Why are you preventing the California members from voting by secret mail in ballots?”

And simply asks him to tell her  “why”.

So far,  Chism has attempted to talk down to her replying with an arrogant “Let’s (Me) Be Clear” in which he arrogantly refuses to answer her question.

Here’s the latest:

From:  A CONCERNED TWHBEA MEMBER

TO:    SIR WALT CHISM

Dear Mr. Chism,

 

Thank you for the swift response to my    email, however you did not respond to my concern.

 

You have yet to directly answer the question “Why are you preventing the California members from voting by secret mail in ballots?”

 

So again, Sir, why?

 

This is the “Clinton” answer to my recent    email:

 

“Let’s be clear, this meeting was called by TWHBEA members from California. The Tennessee law,  that is the basis for asking for a meeting, specifies the location of the meeting. Mr. Smith nor Mr. Chism have any discretion in the matter.”

 

What does  The Tennessee Law  say about mail in ballots? Make that clear.

 

This is your published response to other inquiries.

 

“Reasonable and what I think has no bearing at this point. The meeting has been called under a Tennessee statue and it will be conducted in accordance with  that law.”

 

What Law? Publish it. All of it. Make it clear.

 

“We have bylaws for removal of directors only for cause but under the statue of Tennessee a director can be removed by the members for no cause and then that  same law defines the rules. We’re going to follow  those rules. It doesn’t matter what the bylaws say, Tennessee code trumps TWHBEA bylaws.”

 

What IS  that  law?    What are  those  rules?

 

Publish the Tennessee statue IN IT’S ENTIRETY that states that the designated meeting  location being held in Lewisburg, Tennessee also    states that    you have zero, nada, none, no  discretionary powers to    have the votes sent in by mail instead of handed in    person.

 

Repeating something over and over and over does not make it true.    Show me…and the thousands of others following TWHBEA’s death march online.

 

Don’t paraphrase it, quote it, or give a vague reference, publish that statute, please.

 

As for cost, it has been published online    that the California members will pay all expenses regarding the mail in.

 

What a deal.    They foot their own expenses for TWHBEA business and    you then could actually pay the over burdened, over worked, office staff back their twenty percent pay cut instead of funneling    Association money into totally unnecessary legal fees.

 

Are you delaying    until time absolutely runs out?    Then California    can neither arrive in person or ballot by mail?    Is that how you neutralize opinion that doesn’t align with yours?

 

I’m in Idaho, but it incenses me    the manner in which the California situation is being handled by the Officers and Executive Committee. Apparently I’m not alone.    I’m sure the flood of emails, twitter, faxes, phone calls, at least on this point,    would vanish in a heartbeat if you would eitherprove  you have no alternative or  send California their damn ballots!

 

Sincerely,

 

Connie Graves

FROM A CONCERNED TWHBEA MEMBER

TO:   SIR WALT CHISM
SUBJECT:  What Is Wrong With A Stamp??????????
To the TWHBEA officers and Executive Board,
I just read your latest lawyers letter  regarding the recall procedure.
Help, did I miss something here?
Does chemically altering one’s hair color to Blonde  fry brain cells  or is this   true?
As a TWHBEA member  I  am able to  :
Pay my dues by mail (meaning USPS)
Register TWH horses   by mail.
Transfer ownership of TWH  horses  by mail.
Enroll in TWH award programs by mail.
Buy subscription to Voice magazine by mail.
Order TWHBEA gift shop items by mail.
Vote for my area director by mail.
As a current paid up member  I am not required  to travel to Lewisburg, Tennessee as lovely as it appears to be there, to transact any of the above named official TWHBEA business UNLESS  YOU  DECIDE  I MAY VOTE TO RECALL A DIRECTOR THAT I VOTED IN BY USPS MAIL! Then suddenly it becomes necessary to ride, drive, fly, swim to show up in person   at TWHBEA headquarters?
Really?
If you can’t stand against soring, then at least the Association should be neutral and allow the members to sort it out.
Travel 2,400 or more miles one way to vote when a 50 cent stamp on an envelope could deliver a secret ballot to an unaffiliated CPA firm for counting. Spending thousands of member dollars on unnecessary legal fees you created.   What kind of governance is that? How about UNFAIR!
Please explain,  Mr. Smith  and or  Mr.Chism, how a director can be voted in by above named process but  you two can alter that proceedure  on a whim  to make it
a time and financial hardhip for out of state members to vote in   a recall election.
I noticed the directors contact information is no longer  posted. Members must deal with the executive committee only?   Ok then, here.

Let’s be clear, this meeting was called by TWHBEA members from California. The Tennessee law, that is the basis for asking for a meeting, specifies the location of the meeting. Mr.Smith nor Mr. Chism have any discretion in the matter.
