We all know how how the hierarchy of scouting works and how this "should" be escalated. However each council is different and more importantly each CO is different with some actively engaged in the program to some who just tolerate scouting and are very hands off and will be extremely annoyed with being forced to deal with drama.
My old unit was public school based and chartered by the PTA that consisted of about 8 board members. When I accepted the position of Co-President I was surprised to find out the only person on the board who even knew the PTA was the CO was one of the past Co-Presidents. A couple of the board members expressed concerns about the PTA being the CO due the controversial BSA policies at the time. Some issues still remain. Fortunately my Co-President partner was a long time Scouter at the District/Council/National level and we were able to allay those concerns and continue on.
I doubt this situation is unique. Perhaps bringing this kind of drama to the CO could have a detrimental impact on the unit and it is best handled within scouting in many cases? My wife manages about 30 employees many of whom are high maintenance "creative" types. Her mantra is "Bring me solutions not problems."
