The first letter, written by "New Majority" leader Kip Browne and signed "on behalf" of the JACC board of directors, is addressed to "Old Majority" Vice Chair Ben Myers, and bears the address of Myers' home at 2615 Logan Ave. N.
The letter demands Myers to "cease and desist" from representing himself as the Vice Chair of JACC, to cease taking actions on behalf of JACC with vendors, donors, businesses or the community, to return all property belonging to JACC, and to stop sending communications indicating that the JACC office has moved from 2009 James Ave. N.
It is unknown which letter was written first or delivered first. It is unknown if one letter may be a direct response to the other, or if both Browne and Myers--each an attorney--just naturally went for the "cease and desist letter" as a tactic.
Again, the amazing duality of this saga continues to be a dominant theme: Two chairs both named "Browne/Brown." Dueling agendas. Competing bylaws. Two boards, each proclaiming itself the "true" JACC and calling the other illegitimate. And now dueling "cease and desist letters."
Oh, yes, there is a second letter from Kip Browne, directed at Jerry Moore, and nearly identically worded, telling Moore to stop representing himself as Executive Director.
However, I am in possession of yet ANOTHER letter. This one is from Ben Myers to Jerry Moore. It says Moore is still under contract as Executive Director and, therefore, Moore should keep playing that role. Moore is then directed to go find an office for (Old Majority) JACC, since they have been forced out of 2009 James Ave. N.
It appears Moore still has the JACC checkbook(s) and the power to write checks.
