Outfoxed?

While the Paramount board may not have considered Boisvert's suggestions in the past, future competition with the Fox may force them to. The board is slowly starting to look into ways to strengthen its financial base. For example, they're currently looking into adding another bar in the main lobby.

Too bad Boisvert won't be around to help. Last September, five out of nine members voted against renewing him to another four-year term. Boisvert informed them that they weren't following bylaws, and continues to show up at bimonthly meetings. But according to Ren Hoopes, they're simply waiting for city approval of his replacement.
