As a part of the Local's continuing duty to be transparent and disclose information to members about how their money is being spent, we had an outside, impartial accountant review the Local's books, after finding a discrepancy in the purchase of King's Island tickets in 2016 (before the current administration). Here is her report.Download: GBQ Letter - 9 5 2019.pdf

Brothers and Sisters,
In the interest of full disclosure, I’d like to inform you that I've recently received a communication from Tony Jones, President of Local 413, regarding an offer to purchase the Union Hall property.
I am not in favor of such an action without full discussion by the Executive Board and the Membership. It should be noted that Article 13 of the Local 284 Bylaws provides, in part:
(p) The provisions of this Article shall be qualified as follows; all expenditures, investments, contributions, loans, sales or acquisition of property whether real or personal which exceeds, in any one instance, the sum or value of an amount equal to ten thousand dollars ($10,000), shall, following approval of the Executive Board, be presented to the next regular membership meeting for action. Nothing herein shall require the membership approval of the items entitled Allowances, Expenses and Benefits under Article XV.
This offer should be considered and fully discussed at the next membership meeting on Tuesday, April 30th at 6pm.
I look forward to your input.
