Moonflower draws criticism over recent firings

Board responds with statement

Members of the Moonflower Community Cooperative packed into the Grand County Library’s conference room for the monthly board of directors meeting on Feb. 21. The unusually high attendance was triggered by the recent firing of the Moonflower’s outreach coordinator, which followed a series of other unexplained terminations over the past few months. Because the matter is a personnel issue, board members were unable to offer a specific explanation for any employee’s termination.
