Review for Ocean State Theatre Company Inc, Warwick, RI, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

As clarification and correction to previous comment, the referenced staff members are Board members, per the orgainization's bylaws. Under their employment contract terms, they were entitled to pay increases. In fact, both individuals offered to forgo these increases. They recused themselves while the remainder of the Board considered, and declined, their offer. As all Board meeting minutes reflect, any Board member who might have a conflict of interest in a particular topic, recuses him or herself for the related discussions.
