I am tired of you lying, BOD pretty much is worthless and CBD made it very clear that they don't want anybody except Robert F. Kennedy Jr because of his political clout. Kalow and Witkin are gone. Gary Effren was a CEO but was responsible for all the screw ups and was fired by his friend Cinnamon and moved him to BOD, all of them are shameless as!@#$es who were paid in company shares and hasn't done anything. Most of them were simply loyal to Cinnamon and helped him to run this company like his personal wallet.
Randazzo .......................................don't even want to talk about that !@#$%, she was nothing but an obscure accountant whose fortune changed when she was proppelled to management position for simply being personally loyal to McGowan, she has no management skills, no knowledge of solar, no connections...............................all she knows is how to dilute and issue shares in exchange for peanuts from shadowy funds who mostly registered outside of the US........... I think if Australians are serious which are doubt considering everything they have done so far, but in case miracle happens, then the first thing to restore credibility they have to fire Randazzo.That is how I feel and if you can tell me where I am wrong.....................................what is the point.............
