Board President, Phoenix Earth Food Co-op
Court Victory for Phoenix
An albatross has been removed from Phoenix's neck. On June 30 a Toledo judge dismissed a lawsuit against the Co-op claiming repayment of a $40,000 loan after the death of the lender. The Co-op was skillfully represented by Scott Ciolek, arguing that the terms of the loan excluded transfer to third parties. Scott Ciolek had previously fought a number of cases defending the public interest and individual rights and has won national recognition for his work (see New York Times NPR). Thank you Scott!
New General Manager
At its April 22 meeting, the Co-op's board decided to appoint Sean Fitzgerald as new General Manager. Many thanks to Leah Foley and Helen Elden who stepped in as interim joint General Managers after Lisa Blake's resignation. Please join the Board in wishing Sean much success in guiding Phoenix on a path to prosperity and growth. To see pictures of Sean and the Board celebrating, go to the "About Us" page.
