Jennifer’s question about Renaissance ‘being spread too thin’ was raised in Executive session as were a number of other questions by board members. Each in turn was determined to be inappropriate for Executive session and the discussion moved around the table. However Dave Sheridan and I did our best to cut off such discussion and focus on only financial issues. Dave and his associate composed several specific questions that were germane to the purpose of the Executive Session which was purely financial in nature.
The only questions posed to Mr. Monti in Executive Session and to Mr. D’Amato in Executive Session were these previously crafted and agreed to financial questions. They were asked and they were answered and following the Executive Session each was asked in public if they would submit to the BDDC attorney the documents that were inquired about in Executive Session.
Ms. Janelle is correct, her question was not posed to Renaissance in the Executive Session because it was not germane to the purpose of the executive session. She could have, and should have raised it in public if she was that concerned.
The final question I asked of all directors at the conclusion of the Executive session was, “Other than what we intend to ask Renaissance and D’Amato to provide; is there any other financial information that any member feels they will need in order to intelligently cast a vote at our next meeting?’ Everyone replied “NO” including Ms. Janelle.
It is fair for you to question what discussion or actions took place in the Executive Session, but it is impossible for me, with a strong minded board facing an enormous decision to control what each person says or asks. She raised it, it was not relevant to the purpose of the session, it was not further discussed, it was not asked of or answered by the developer*******
