My question is really this:
Our Scoutmaster was very unhappy about which boys got voted
into the OA. His favorite boys didn't get elected.
He even told the parent's committee how terrible it was and
told the parents that he wanted them to influence their boys in the
election next year. He repeated it in a second parent's meeting.
My question is:
First, if all the boys on the ballot were qualified, and the boys
in the troop voted for their choice, is the Scoutmaster supposed to say
anything. Does he get to criticize the vote?
Second, is the Scoutmaster allowed to tell the parents to influence
their boys votes?
Finally, how does it work about the Scoutmaster being sore that
his favorites didn't get in? What about the feelings of the boys that did
get in. They are qualified and their peers voted them in, but the Scoutmaster
won't even congratulate them?
