Bob Drummond has served as president and CEO of TLC for Children and Families since 2001. Having worked in nonprofit organizations, I understand the skill and dedication it takes to serve the community. However, I also know that nonprofit organizations cannot participate in political campaigns.
According to the Internal Revenue Service, nonprofit organizations “may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.”
A veteran of the nonprofit world, Drummond should know using his work e-mail as his campaign e-mail places his nonprofit organization at risk for losing it’s federal and state funding. Drummond’s inability to understand regulations that guide his nonprofit places hundreds of children and families at risk of losing services they seek from his organization.
As part of his platform, Drummond says he wants to “enhance the economic benefit of JCCC with increased business and school district partnerships.”
Let’s just hope that if he’s elected to the board, Drummond will take the time to learn the regulations that guide JCCC.
