I am in need of advice.
Here is the scenario:
Controversial Merit Badge Counselor Application declined and current
Counselor status revoked. It has been alleged by a Scout and his father
that MB Counselor has been harassing them, and the Scout's twin brother, to
leave the MB Counselor's former Troop to join the MB Counselors current
Troop. It is also alleged that in making such suggestions the MB Counselor
repeatedly used profanity and criticized the boy's Scoutmaster. The
District Chairman advised the MB Counselor that they may appeal to Council
should they disagree with the declination of the application and revocation
of MB Counselor status.
The problem: was this correct procedure?
Can the District Chair make this decision?
Any ideas or comments will be appreciated.
