(Read the full story below or on the Ventura County Star website)
Re: your story March 24, “Repay $5.6M, state orders VCCF — Foundation investments, outlay called imprudent”:
We are so thankful for Vanessa Bechtel (executive director) and Jim Rivera (chief compliance officer) for their dedication, talent and perseverance in working through the problems they unexpectedly inherited at the Ventura County Community Foundation when hired.
We also thank the trustees who made the decision to hire such a uniquely qualified and dedicated executive director.
Mike and Loretta Merewether, Ventura
