$4,000 is a pretty nifty chunk of cash for most people.
It could be a really nice vacation. A decent used car. Rent money. A semester at CUNY with change to spare.
For a $45,000,000 business like the Park Slope Food Coop, it's pocket change.
It could be a nice donation to CHIPS. It could be 25% of the new Coop start-up loan fund. It could be a silent alarm system at the front desk for the entrance worker to discretely notify the office if someone is stuffing merchandise into the front lockers. That might take a bite out of the $250,000 annual loss to theft.
$4,000 are the expenses associated with holding our meeting to vote on the vote at the Brooklyn Technical High School auditorium. After all, BDS is so very important to the Coop and our joining it will be so beneficial it is worth every penny - NOT.
I want to get my $4,000 worth. Please come out and vote NO. I want to clean their clock.
