Yesterday I read this on the TTA web site:
(follow the link at the end for whatever meat there is).

I was aware that both the President & CEO of TTA had resigned recently, but being a local comp player, a volunteer for table tennis at a community centre and a PCYC, on the local association committee, and a state level umpire, was obviously not well connected enough to hear why, and the announcements of both on the TTA web site gave no clue. Am I putting 2 and 2 together and getting 5 here?

Can TTA be a little more transparent about what is going on?

According to the open letter from 19 December, it was known from the completion of the Australian Open that TTA was in trouble. TTA is apparently also committed to providing open, transparent and ongoing dialogue with all key stakeholders. I am affiliated with TT NSW at the highest level. Am I not a stakeholder? Or is the state association a bottleneck in this instance?

The State Associations would be the direct stakeholders of TTA (as well as other bodies that work directly with TTA), and as mentioned in the letter, TTA has been is discussion with the State Associations for a while to resolve some of the issues.
I think the letter was a good move to inform the rest of the TT community. Whether they should have published this earlier, or more details, is open to debate. I do know Scott (the new CEO since a few months ago) personally, and I think he's highly capable of sorting out the issues.

The open letter appears quite reasonable. They have some financial difficulties and are working through them. Could probably ask for more info if you wanted.

If be pretty confident that 100% of our membership couldn't care less unless it comes to a point where we can't play anymore. Local issues are far more important to us and even then most people have their head in the sand.
