For example, former President Brown sold for $10,000 an easement owned by CA. She was not authorized under CA governing documents to sell it. Moreover, she sold his property (estimated by a knowledgeable Board member to be worth $100,000 to $300,000) without even getting an appraisal. When asked why she did this, she said that she didn't want to "gouge" the buyer, which was one of the largest real estate companies in the U.S. Guess whose interests CA was protecting in this instance.
