HAF Board of Governors Appointment

In the second paragraph of Vera's 1972 will she stated "the foundation has been created by a declaration of trust execute by me this date."

Below is Section V of that document "Board of Governors" to oversee HAF's daily activities. This system was followed through 1992 and scraped post 1993.

 



BOARD OF GOVERNORS

(a) APPOINTMENTS: A Board Of Governors shall be appointed to direct the application of the income and principal of the fund or funds of the Foundation in all cases in which the respective donors thereof may not have specifically made provisions as provided in Articles II and III. The Board of Governors shall consist of seven (7) citizens and residents of the United States Of America and of the State of California residing in the County of Humboldt or within fifty (50) miles from the boundaries thereof, selected for their knowledge of public trust purposes, or any of them, as specified in Article I hereof

One member by the President of College of the Redwoods for four years. One member by the President of the United Way for the County of Humboldt for five years.


Vera's Perrott watchdogs allege that there is something rotten in Denmark. There is no record in Vera's Courthouse file of HAF approaching the Court to get permission to scrap this part of Vera's trust agreement, appointment of Board Of Governors. Jack Selvage, who was the chairman of the board when the 1995 north of the house and residence `destruction' was applied for (Humboldt County Planning) was nominated by the Humboldt Superior Court. The Court first in 1999 ruled that the Perrotts had standing, then reversed itself (under pressure?). Yes there must have been some `red handed' and `red faced' trustees. HAF did not approach the court for permission to destroy the Nature Preserve in 1995. They just did it, and only admitted to the court that they had used invaded principal on approaching the court for the 1999 `further building', telling the court, essentially, HAF and WFB invaded principal last time in 1995, why not now? The Court agreed. Vera and Watchdogs (who were not informed of the Court proceedingss and not present) are not amused. The public should be outraged.


See the 'bogus' Attorney General letter. Therein the Attorney General informs that no one but his office can approve a modification to a Trust or Foundation. The selection of Board Members is part of both the trust document and the Foundation. HAF, the Perrotts allege, did not have the right to alter that procedure without the AG's consent. HAF just did it, another illegal breach of fiduciary responsibility.
