In an email to the State Executive Council of the NCDP, Chairman Voller claims that the authors of a complaint to the Council of Review leaked their petition online:
"A member of this council and three members of the State Executive Committee (SEC) filed a complaint for the Council of Review and instead of allowing due process to operate they have posted it on BlueNC and leaked it to the media."
-from Voller email
This is absolutely untrue.
I was asked to be a signatory to this petition but declined since I am no longer a member of the SEC. However I did agree with the grounds of the complaint, which details an abuse of power in the attempt to circumvent review of grievances against the Chairman at a Council meeting on April 28th.
I kept my digital copy of the complaint and after it was filed, shared it with several people, including the administrator of BlueNC. I did so without the knowledge or permission of the authors of the petition. They are without fault in this matter. As this is a public document and will be heard in a public forum, so am I.
This case addresses an uncommon abuse of power by a Chairman with the capacity in his double role as Executive Director to exercise undue influence on the process. Therefore I believe that this complaint and its petitioners require the added protection that full transparency and public attention bring. Hopefully, more eyes on this matter will ensure that all dealings are above board, and that our party remains a model of free and open governance.
