Boise Co-op Board: We Want to Move Forward.


There has been little to no communication Friday from the Boise Co-op Board of Directors in the wake of the Jan. 13 firing of longtime store manager Ken Kavanagh.

Late Friday, the board sent out a letter to its members, saying it wanted "to share some important information," several hours after most Boiseans had heard the news about Kavanagh's dismissal.

In an interview with Citydesk, Kavanagh said, "I wouldn't treat a dog the way I've been treated."

In its official statement, the Co-op Board said, "A key part of our planning and preparation for the future has been the identification and recruitment of a grocery industry leader who could take the Co-op forward with a continuing emphasis on quality products and outstanding customer service."
