This is the official Candidate Nomination Page.
NOMINATIONS ARE DUE BY MONDAY, JULY 27th.
Important note...While the website was back up and running last week, week of July 5th, there was a delay with this page going live as each board member had an opportunity to weigh in and provide feedback, suggestions, changes, etc.
In order to ensure that the Property Owners have an opportunity to know who they might be electing, fill the information out below. Please note that the responses may be modified to fit the page format.
Note...Elections are for Board Member Positions only. Once the Board has been elected, in the following Board Meeting, the Board will appoint the officers.
There are 4 open Board Positions to be elected. They are Denise Murtha's, John Anderson's, John Nguyen's and Robin Bennett's.
There is one open position to be appointed in which they are in their first year of a 3 year term. Per the bylaws, the position would be appointed by the Board. Rather than appointing that position before elections, the Board has chosen to appoint based on the candidate voting results and the 5th runner up will be appointed.
Laura Tijerina and Monty Lewis are the two Board Members whose positions are in their first year, and therefore will not be voted on.
There is an anticipated vacancy, potentially, so there may need to be another appointed position at some point. So if you are not elected, there is still an opportuntiy for you to be on the Board later.
Nominations may be made from the floor on the day of the Annual Meeting (date to be announced soon). The Board is working on the specifics for hard copy voting for those that do not like to vote via the voting app. We will provide more information as soon as possible and will update on this page and send out an email.
