A very public battle is about to get much hotter.
The vice-chair of the Cassellholme Board, Mark King says he is going to introduce a motion at the next meeting to remove Bill Vrebosch, who was appointed just last week, from the body.
King says it is based on comments made in today's BayToday article.
"It's obvious to me at this point that the councillor is unable to meet the governance requirements as a board member of Cassellholme and it will be my intention to put a motion forward to rescind Councillor Vrebosch's appointment to the Board," King told BayToday late Wednesday afternoon.
The next board meeting is scheduled for the middle of October, but Chair Chris Mayne could call a meeting before then.
King calls Vrebosch's words and actions "very concerning."
"This councillor has been attempting to influence some of the other board members behind the scenes and certainly it may look at this point that he is attempting to intimidate these board members. There is no way that the governance should operate that way. We're in a democracy, not a dictatorship, and certainly, I'll be moving a motion at the next meeting."
Reminded that it's Council that appointed Vrebosch, King responded, "Based on the governance issue that's in place at Cassellholme there's a requirement of board members to work in the best interest of the board and the residents of Cassellholme.
"Based on the comments he made in that article, obviously he's not prepared to go in that direction.
"He's totally gone over the line!"
