Earlier this summer, allegations were made about Scott Lynch, a longtime Board member for 4th Street. While none of the allegations involved the convention directly, some of the allegations were matters for serious concern, and we received a formal safety report requesting that we determine whether there was any ongoing risk to the 4th Street community.
Various members of the Board were either directly involved in or witnesses to some of the events in question, and they all recused themselves immediately from the investigation. We formed an ad hoc committee of uninvolved Board members, volunteers, and members of the 4th Street community. This committee investigated all available allegations, witness statements, and follow-up statements, and have determined that our Code of Conduct was not violated, nor is there a risk to the 4th Street community. The member who filed the safety report has been contacted and agrees that the report has been resolved.
Thank you all for your patience.
