  1. So why didn’t he say anything at the last meeting on Wednesday when discussion was held if board members are absent (him specifically) 3 times they should removed? He was already removing himself. Which is a great plan! “Adios crook.”

  2. At least Mr Torrez left in a much more dignified fashion than Linda Wilbourn. She did it in a very gutless and classless fashion, giving a resignation letter to the HCCA attorney couple of hours before the Board meeting.
