Our new CC has asked me to post this for him. You may remember last fall
I asked for advice because our CC and here son were causing problems.
She always came unglued when her son was in a difficult situation. Most
suggested that we get rid of her. Well it took 4 months and another
incident but as of January our Troop has a new CC. Now our old CC has
decided to declare war on us.
She has torn us apart verbally and in a two page letter she sent to all
the district positions. Our DE backs our decision (he also suggested we
remove her from her position) and knows the letter was only her side.
But our commissioner and many former leaders who she decidided to get
involved believe her. Her complaints were everyone picked on her son,
discipline and boys did not participate in district activities. Etc. Etc.
Last Monday night we told our boys that she and her son had moved on
to another troop to help them out. That is all we have said. Some how
every one out side of the troop knows what has happened. Even the letter
in detail. We are getting tired of hearing how terrible our troop is
and would like to devote our time back to the boys, not defending our troop.
We did not want to get the parents involved but they are very supportive
of the leaders. Our new CC wants to know if we should tell the parents
their concern of the former CC behavior. Or just keep quiet and hope it
goes away. What upsets us know has gotten after her for her behavior
but they got after us because what she wrote about us. Any suggestions.
Sorry this ended up long. Thanks
