USACA's support base erodes further

In an affidavit in opposition to the order to show cause in the petition filed by Kenwyn Williams asking that USACA be dissolved, Gladstone Dainty claimed that the board's decision to suspend Kenwyn Williams was approved by nine leagues in good standing, constituting two-thirds majority of the twelve USACA leagues eligible to vote.

For the first time since the controversial election, USACA acknowledged that its membership was down to twelve good-standing leagues, down from the fifteen leagues that voted in April 2012.   But that is not the whole story. 

Attached to the affidavit were nine ballots from leagues indicating approval of the board's November 1 decision.  At least two league presidents have since disputed the authority of the signatories.

Michael Dupigny signed the ballot on behalf of Washington Metro Cricket Board (WMCB) claiming to be the Acting Chairman of the Board of Directors for that league.    When reached for comment regarding his league's support of the USACA board decision, WMCB President, Avinash Varma, denied knowledge of the ballot.  Responding via email, Varma wrote that "Mike Dupigny does not hold any office with the WMCB league since March 24, 2012."   Varma noted that WMCB's BOD was dissolved by the membership at a special session held in March. 

New Jersey Cricket Association's newly elected president, Govind Itwaru told DreamCricket.com that he had not seen the ballot and could not comment on its contents.  However, Itwaru said that Sheldon Mollineau, who had signed on behalf of the league, had resigned as the president of NJCA on November 16, 2012 and could not claim to represent the league following his resignation.   The undated ballot had an electronic signature of Sheldon Mollineau whose title appears as President of NJCA.  

Interestingly, even though the ballots had to be faxed or emailed no later than 9PM ET on December 9, 2012, at least three of the ballots had a facsimile date following that date.

If USACA had twelve leagues in good standing, then eight leagues would have constituted a two-thirds majority.  It is apparent that USACA had trouble meeting that basic requirement by December 9th.
