After a 2 1/2 hour meeting, the board of directors of the Lodi Boys and Girls Club did not release a decision on the fate of club president Paul Bonell, who was connected this week with a former medical marijuana outfit that is under investigation.
Bonell did some consulting work in 2011 with a now-defunct medical marijuana operation. But Bonell did not list this work on his resume, and did not disclose it to the board of directors during the hiring process.
Bonell was mentioned in a New York Times story published Sunday regarding federal action against the marijuana operation. That operation included medical marijuana dispensaries and a warehouse where more than 2,000 plants were cultivated.
The Times article focused on Matt Davies of Stockton. Davies is currently facing federal charges for cultivating marijuana, after federal authorities raided two dispensaries and a warehouse filled with marijuana plants in Stockton in July 2012. Davies is challenging the charges on the basis that he ran a medical marijuana dispensary in line with California regulations.
The board of directors met on Wednesday to discuss why Bonell chose not to list the work on his resume or mention it to his employers.
Board chairman Mark Bregman said to expect confirmation of the board's decision by Monday at the latest.
