Attempt To Remove Regional Director Noba Anderson From Office

Main Index Page

In early January 2019, Cortes Island was rocked by an unprecedented event. After a close election -- and during ongoing community discussion of whether or not to support our 2 community halls with a regional district property tax service -- 14 Cortes residents filed a petition to litigate against our recently re-elected Regional Director. The stated aim of the petitioners was to remove her from office and prohibit her from running again until the next election cycle.

The petition accused Director Anderson of accepting bribes and delivering kickbacks. It also, implicitly, accused 27 community members of bribery, and 7 non profit community organisations of accepting kickbacks.

Nothing of this kind has ever happened on Cortes before, as far as I know. This page is intended as an archive of the event and the history leading up to it, and will be updated with new developments as they occur.

How to Write to SRD

If you would like to communicate with SRD about these issues and questions, the address to write to is...

... and please note, your email should be clearly directed to "the Chair and Board of Directors" for it to be included in the public record.

The most effective form of communication with a body such as SRD, in terms of formal process, is to ask questions. I'm not going to tell anyone what they should say; express what you need to express. But if you would like to maximise the usefulness of your letter for future process, then requesting clarification or explanation of things that bother you is the most effective format. The letters by Sprungman and the Le Cheminants (in the corrdespondence file are excellent examples of how to word a courteous but specific letter of inquiry.

If you would like your letter to SRD to become part of this archive (the page you're now reading, that is), send a copy to De Clarke at the address below.

This site may not be updated on a regular schedule, so please be patient if your letter does not appear immediately.
