The Colorado chapter of Americans for Prosperity is planning a rally next week to oppose the $1.15 million separation agreement for Memorial CEO Larry McEvoy.
The separation agreement, which has sparked public outrage, includes 18 months’ severance pay, or $1 million.
It also includes $20,000 to help McEvoy find a new job when he leaves Memorial and transferring title of a 2007 Toyota Camry hybrid that McEvoy has driven during his time as CEO.
The rally will be at noon Wednesday at Memorial Hospital, 1400 E. Boulder.
According to AFP’s blog, the name of the event is: “Stop Memorial Hospital Golden Parachute Rally!”
The state director of AFP is Jeff Crank.
Here’s what AFP’s website says about Crank:
Jeff is currently the Colorado State Director of Americans for Prosperity, a grassroots free-market, free-enterprise organization.

He owns Rocky Mountain Consultants, a Colorado Springs based company providing business development consulting services to several business clients.

He also enjoys spending time with his wife, who has put up with him for over two decades and his daughter, Jessica, who melts his heart.
