We have received this letter from the PLP. There has been a takeover of the Board of Directors that has led to uncertainty of the leadership. We suggest to refrain supporting either financially until this is resolved.

To all PLP members and supporters,
The Board of directors must inform you of the current situation we are experiencing. We were hoping to have solved this matter sooner. However, it appears this might take longer than we expected so we must inform you now of recent events. Here are that facts:
On July 14, 2016, this board received resignation letters from four of our board members:
- Ray Kender, resigned Secretary
- Barry Wetherby, resigned Director
- Pat Keene, resigned Director
- Duane Platz, resigned Recording Secretary.
On July 21, 2016, a meeting was held at Keene Engineering, unannounced to us and to you as PLP members, and an election was held that supposedly removed the current board members and supposedly placed Ray Kender as interim President. It appears all resigned board members were present.
On July 23, 2016 Ray Kender, without any knowledge or consent from PLP, executed various corporate documents purporting to be an authorized agent of PLP, including the filing of an updated statement of information with the California Secretary of State appointing himself as an officer, director and agent of service of process. Soon after, Mr. Kender under the self-assumed title of “President” presented falsified documentation to the bank that PLP banks with, usurping our corporate bank account. He also changed the locks on our mailbox withholding access of all PLP property from your current board of directors. Acts that this board sees as an improper exercise of corporate authority that Mr. Kender did not, and does not possess.
