Here is a page for shareholders to register so we can try to get a group together to begin litigation against these folks and their stolen assets
Not too shabby for a days work,
|click here for UPDATED contact information to 13th Regional Corporation Directors.Updates are located throughout this page…
UPDATE: January 24, 2011: The 13th is now known as a “Ghost Corporation” in the media. Read more about the inactivity of our directors at Alaska Dispatch.
UPDATE: January 7, 2011: New MAILING ADDRESS for 13th Regional Corporation: Visit the offices at Seattle Indian Center, Leschi Building, 611 12th Ave S., Suite 300 Seattle WA 98044-1911 (address provided on State of Alaska filings dated January 4, 2011). A photo of the building is at left. Better yet, give them a call at , ext. 3, or call Mike Rawley directly, CEO, at .
UPDATE: DEC. 12, 2009: New article on Alaska Dispatch website: “Ailing 13th Regional Corp. shrouded in mystery“ Mike Rawley is quoted as saying (in response to questions about The 13th’s financial health, future plans, and whether The 13th is in the process of collapsing—posed by Jill Burke, the seasoned reporter for Alaska Dispatch), “that’s for our shareholders to know.” When asked if shareholders have access to that information, he said “the ones that contact us individually do.” CLICK HERE TO ASK THEM DIRECTLY AND SHARE YOUR RESPONSE WITH 13TH ACCOUNTABILITY.
UPDATE: NOV. 27 2009: On November 9, 2009, Jackie Rashleger filed a new Biennial Report with the State of Alaska. This document, with a change of officers, indicates an ongoing intent (by the named directors) to operate The 13th Regional Corporation, and they need to be continue to be held to the standard of care of ordinary and prudent directors and officers of a corporation. Read below and make your own decision to determine if you believe they are using the care required of directors of native corporations (not providing required financial reports, not having annual meetings, collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue and NOT reporting to shareholders). PLEASE CALL YOUR DIRECTORS AT THE PHONE NUMBERS BELOW!
Remember: No Shareholder Meeting for over 3 years now; as of the last proxy solicitation (which never resulted in an actual meeting of shareholders), Art Smith was NOT elected by shareholders as a director, George Samuel’s term expired in 2007 or 2008, Mike Rawley’s term expired in 2007 or 2008, Jackie Rashleger’s term “expires in 2009”; Tom A. Harris’s term “expires in 2009”, and Christopher J. Kiana’s term “expires in 2008”.
In its last communication with its shareholders, The 13th Regional Corporation’s directors informed its shareholders that members of its Heritage Foundation would “renew contact” with shareholders “in the next few weeks” … “While the Board of The 13th focuses on recovery.” Why they would think that a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation was going to fund the ordinary course of business of a for-profit entity is another question. Nevertheless, that was nearly one year ago. Click here to see that document.
Since it has now been 3 years since the directors of The 13th Regional Corporation have held an annual meeting of shareholders, this update will serve to inform shareholders and the public of the current status of the Corporation and its subsidiaries from this shareholder’s perspective. As I have always striven to do, I will gladly change information on this page if the directors ask me to do so and provide proof that any of the information is inaccurate. I won’t, however, change information if the posting merely reflects negatively on the directors’ performance.
The lowlights of the directors’ management of The 13th Regional Corporation: No audited financial reports to shareholders since FY 2006 reports were delivered, in violation of federal law 43 USC § 1625 and Alaska Statute 10.06.433. No quarterly financial reports provided despite legal demands from shareholders for well over a year. The directors continue to operate and collect money (revenue of over $700,000 alone from Talon Ridge/Alindeska Development Services LLC). The directors have allowed judgments and liens against the corporation for past employee withholding and employee benefits in the amounts of hundreds of thousands of dollars (see below). Separately, it owes settlement funds for past litigation in the amounts of several hundred thousand dollars. Washington State Tax Warrants have been filed in several counties (amounts undetermined at this time, but believed to be over $100,000). Eviction proceedings were commenced in August 2009 relating to The 13th’s main offices in Tukwila. Separately, eviction proceedings were commenced in summer 2008 relating to subsidiary offices in Bremerton, Washington. The 13th was alleged have left behind assets: “Vehicles, office supplies, furniture and equipment were all abandoned in the premises,” alleges one source.
As of October 14th, 2009, The 13th’s web site is now shut down. Its last communication with shareholders was during Fall, 2009. The 13th refused to provide information to regulators in Alaska and to Congressional staff in Washington, DC. Its directors refuse to comply with quarterly demands for financial statements.
As a reminder, these are YOUR directors as taken from The 13th’s web site before the directors allowed it to go dark (the list of directors were taken from the website when it was running, and from publicly filed documents with the State of Alaska; these people may or may not be directors as of 10/15/09; however, they were directors at some point during the period(s) covered in this update, from FY 2006 forward, according to the most recent proxy statements and/or regulatory filings).
