During Gerry Fusco’s 6 month tenure, he has banned at least 3 volunteers from BARC.
I posted the “Security Alerts” for 3 of the banned volunteers on our website. These Security Alerts would make it appear that the banned citizens are terrorists posing some kind threat to security. But, these are VOLUNTEERS. These are people who have given up their precious free time, to selflessly go to BARC to try to help save animals. Yet, they are treated like criminals and banned from the premises. This is a complete and unnecessary waste of resources that BARC cannot afford to lose. BARC generally does not have enough volunteers. Many of those who used to volunteer, or might be talked into volunteering in the future, will not because of BARC’s new over-restrictive rules and badging requirements. So, those citizens who do go out of their way and jump through hoops to volunteer are becoming exhausted and burned out.
Is the “Change” that Fusco/Bill White promised? Is this BARC’s path to stopping the killing? It sounds remarkably similar to what we had before Fusco arrived.
