Cover Oregon board member falls asleep at meeting, shows up late

I wrote in our Oregon 5 Things We’re Watching news letter this week that I thought the Cover Oregon board had gotten a pretty clean pass through much of the last 12 months.

I’m sure they don’t feel like they’ve gotten a pass.  But, compare the criticism of the board to the criticism leveled at the senior staff and there is – in my mind – no comparison.  The staff have taken most of the brunt of the criticism, like this, this and this.

But, when board members can’t show up on time to meetings – nor apparently stay awake – it seems reasonable that more criticism might be directed at the board than has previously been offered.
