As a COR you are no doubt painfully aware that the chartered organization
is responsible for the quality of the leaders it has in its units. I
would recommend that you meet with the Institutional Head and Chartered
Organization Representative and discuss this matter with them personally.
They need to know that there is a serious leadership problem. They
should be very concerned to have a leader who is worthy of the trust they
have placed in him/her. If upon review they agree with you they do have
the power to change the Troop's leadership.
At the same time I would give the District Commissioner a courtesy call
to make sure he/she knows the situation. Then you can refer the IH and
COR to the District Commissioner for outside assistance in recruiting new
unit leadership, if they agree with you that this SM should step down.
The conduct of this SM and some of his ASMs creates a poor example of
living the Scout Law and certainly casts doubt on his personal
