Just an update to all. I have the petition and am gathering the signatures needed.
Cover letter sent out to owners with the proposed pledge:
I am in the process of contacting individual lot owners asking for their support in signing
the petition I plan on presenting to the BOD at the Annual POA meeting to be held later this month.
The intent of the petition is to gather enough signatures to have the BOD take action to consider using
this pledge for any owner running, appointed or elected to the XXXXXX XXXXX BOD.
This pledge is nothing more than to serve as a reminder of the ethical manner in which candidates or Board Members
should carry out their duties and responsibilities in support of our Restrictions and Protective Covenants
which were established in 19XX, including By-laws. In 20XX these were ‘reinstated’ (including amendments) required by
Florida Statute 712 which allowed them to be renewed and updated prior to the 30-year expiration date.
By gathering enough signatures, we are asking that the owners be allowed to vote on this proposal. To ensure this
happens, we need to get 20% percent of owners to sign the petition and the 2 additional votes for your lots would help
achieve that goal.
One way to put this into perspective is to ask this question of owners.
“If two candidates were running to fill one vacancy due to term expiration, and only one candidate
was willing to sign the pledge, which candidate would you vote for?
Please show your support by reading the attachment in its entirety and printing off page 3. Fill out the
first spot (or more depending on # lots owned) on the signature page, printing the names of all owners, with signatures, lot number,
and date. Scan or take a picture of that page and email it back to me so it can be attached to the formal petition.
If you have any questions, please reach out.
Comments: Now please note that I have suggested that the BOD ‘consider using it’. Will update you all after the POA meeting. Some ‘interesting’ feedback for lack of a better term after our BOD was notified as to what I am doing.
