The Upcoming Annual Meeting
Priority One Credit Union's annual meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, May 27, 2009, at 6 p.m. at the main branch located at 1631 Huntington Drive, South Pasadena, CA 91030. We urge members who still care about the credit union's future to attend the gatherings. Every member should be concerned that President Wiggington has yet to post March's Income Statement which means, the credit union is again, out of compliance.
The President recently told some employees in the South Pasadena branch that he and Board Chair, Diedra Harris-Brooks, are upset by disclosures made on this blog suggesting that the President's refusal to post March's Income Statement is nothing more than one of his infamous hissy fits.
Last Wednesday, we received an email from an employee that the Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee have escalated their efforts to protect President Wiggington and have joined him in trying to hide all records showing that Priority One is experiencing tremendous losses of its Net Income.
Apparently, the President, the Directors and the Supervisors can't fathom that this blog could never exist without President Wiggington. Not only was it his public abuses that brought us into existence but it is his inability to refrain from divulging confidential information that is the fodder that fuels our posts.
The fact that the Board continues to protect him isn't a surprise. In 2008, Diedra Harris-Brooks, led Directors, O. Glen Saffold and Thomas Gathers and Supervisory
Committee Chair, Cornelia Simmons, into ignoring documented evidence that President Wiggington had indeed spent years sexually harassing a former employee. What's more, Mrs. Harris-Brooks ignored the investigators recommendation that President Wiggington be terminated. If the Board covered up the President's violation of federal law, why would we be surprised that they would defend him in any other abuses he's perpetrated?
And the fact is, under Charles R. Wiggington, Sr., Mrs. Harris-Brooks has far exceeded the perimeters of her state-mandated role as Chairperson. She never schedules appointments to visit the main branch. While at the branch, she interrupts closed door meetings. She has taken control over advertising and even personnel issues. She is for all intents and purposes the real CEO of the credit union while President Wiggington is an emasculated puppet. Believe us, we understand why she wants her position on the Board to remain intact.
