Steve Ratto, the regional director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, received the following email from Cathyanne Nonini. Ratto contacted executive Ryan Davis of the Kootenai County Boys & Girls Club of Kootenai County afterward. Moments ago, Huckleberries Online contacted Davis, who is at an organization conference in San Francisco today. Davis confirmed that Ratto told him that he'd received the email from Cathyanne Nonini, who'd also sent a copy of Pat Whalen's 2006 DUI arrest record to the national office.
Good morning Steve,
This is per my conversation with Tony in your National Office. This gentleman is currently the Board President for our local B&G Club. We do not feel it is a good example for a person with a DUI conviction to be serving on a B&G Club Board.
Peace and Blessings,
