Christmas present for Polish community in San Francisco

Very well known and respected investigative Polish journalist from New York City is interested in writing a story about San Francisco Polonia conflict. His name is Leszek Lechowicz. His best reference is recent article "Polonijny kretacz" printed in Polish National Alliance [PNA] Daily:

He is open to meet with both sides of the conflict which surrounds discrimination over membership in Saint Stanislaus Society, one of the founding member organization of the Polish Club in San Francisco together with control of assets Polish community accumulated over its nearly 125 year history in San Francisco and is estimated at over three million dollars.

Leszek Lechowicz proposes to meet with both sides of the conflict as much as would be necessary to find out details. He proposes both sides to share the expenses 50/50 so he could be viewed as an impartial observer. The immediate reaction from the Saint Stanislaus Society 57 was agreement to talk to the journalist. The position of Benevolent Society is not yet known. The contact with the journalist is via email: panleszek(at) or can be obtained through PNA daily Dziennik Zwiazkowy.

The conflict is in the appellate court, because despite the verdict of the judge for the plaintiff Saint Stanislaus Society, the Polish Club other organizations under the leadership of one family, are

recognizing the defendant corporation Saint Stanislaus Benevolent Society Inc. as the rightful member of the Polish Club. In order to avoid legal proceedings a group of people asked Leszek Lechowicz for help. This could save the Polish community hundreds of thousands of dollars in coming appellate procedure. Once the matters are explained by an independent observer, the community will have knowledge to act accordingly. So far, the community is witnessing a one sided blasting of propaganda materials with the other side waiting patiently for the resolution. The fact that Leszek Lechowicz is being published in the PNA daily newspaper, should be helpful due to the strong connections between the Benevolent Society members and the PNA. One of them is even paid officer of PNA - Commissioner for the West Coast.

Hopefully this initiative will bring peace to the community. Lets hope for the best and celebrate this Christmas 2005 with lots of prayers for Polonia.

Dear Mr. Lewandowski,
Thank you for you e-mail and your kind words. I do read Polish and I am aware of the issues raised in the articles you sent. In fact Dr Tadeusz Witkowski, the editor of our publication, Periphery is currently doing a research project on the issue of the Polish Security Service and its involvement with American Polonia. The issue, as significant as it might be from number of other stand points, is not in any way central to our project of identifying all congressmen whose districts contain more than 5% Polish Populations and getting them to be responsive to Polish and Polish American concerns. In fact, it could be a distraction. Most of the people we need to mobilize in this effort to increase our Political clout, using means other than the traditional Polonia channels, have no connection to Polish American organizations or media. There are 10 million people who identify as Polish Americans and only 5% of them were born in Poland. I think we have as good a plan as any to educate and activate a significant number of those who are part of that "sleeping giant". I send my best wishes along with my thanks. I hope to hear from you again and if Dr Witkowski decides to publish some of his research I will let you know.
Thad Radzilowski
