By Cecilio-Augusto F. Berndsen, Candidate to the Board of the Association
It is that time of year again.
An old building with a lot of potential. Owners are ready to cast their votes. Candidates have shown their platforms.
It may be useful to think: Should I protect my investment or should I let the decay take over? Are we really protecting our valuable asset or are we being frugal to the point of loss? Penny wise and pound foulish?
Where are we headed? Is proper management the constant firing of managers, employees and vendors? Certainly not.
What is the cost of so much in fighting?
I think it is time pause and reflect. To continue to neglect, to manage by firing, to distrust any service or vendor that comes into the building may give us the worst.
Have we ever thought about the cost and time to train and educate a new manager? A new Security team leader? A new maintenance crew? Think again and vote.
It is time to change! Vote with your head not with your heart. Let’s bring Aquarius to a status where everyone can have a safe, comfortable and trouble free life.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. Albert Einstein
