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

    Thank you Cecilio for your common sense comments. Let us exercise our right to vote and put in a slate which will represent all of us and not just the few .


    • Dear JUDITH
      When we elect Republicans. Will they represent all of us? When we elect Democrats. The same question. Which slate will represent all of us? The problem is to work with opposing parties and respect the minority, even if they are just few. The previous board majority of 1+2 against 2 ignored the opposing parties and interests of unit owners. No matter how you represent the removal of VP and P, it was done by DBPR government agency according the laws of the country. You said very clearly that you are against special assessments, till the 2017 year clarify what is exactly is needed. But now you are in the slate with people ( at least you are in their list) who are ready to put new huge not proven assessments right away. I cannot wish your slate “the luck” and hope you will keep your promise.
