A low point

The 2013 Sealaska Annual meeting will be in Hoonah, Alaska during the month of June. Sealaska directors Patrick Anderson, Sid Edenshaw, Jacki Peta and Byron Mallot all share one thing in common. None of them have been elected on the merits of their ideas. All are Sealaska appointees. This year, they will be the Sealaska endorsed nominees.

 

In fact, 8 of 13 of the current directors are all appointed and I believe none of them has an idea between them. Or shareholders would have seen it by now. We are at a low point now where Sealaska directors are appointing their own directors to fill vacancies.

This monopoly of discretionary directors is proving to shareholders it will take decades for this group to find itself. If you judge this group on its ideas, where are they?
