Ladies and Gentlemen !
Now that the Organizational meeting is behind us, it is time to start concentrating on achieving tasks on hand. Through your votes, you have made it very clear that you are keenly interested in seeing results.
As one of your Directors, I can assure you that I will concentrate all my energy on bringing about an order for managing current lingering construction projects. I look forward to receiving your input through your participation in various committees. I am aware that some of you, who have resided here for a long period of time, would like to keep pursuing what happened in the past. While that is good for having background information, it does not help with completing tasks on hand or accomplishing goals for the future.
Besides completing long over-due open projects, our community is facing a real challenge of meeting 40 years certification requirements. Please do not be misled in believing that we can do that by simply making cosmetic changes to get around addressing the real needs of our facility. W e have some serious structural, electrical, and safety-to-life issues that we must address in a logical manner. Our goal must be to have a safe and secure facility for all of us to enjoy and also to protect our investment for the future.
In order to address these concerns, we must have full accounting of funds available and earmarked in the past into various line items. This information will assist us in re-prioritizing and matching funds with need for funding current projects. Please keep in mind that a logical approach to fund projects adequately keeps personal preferences and biases out of discussion.
Again, thank you for your support and willingness to participate in meeting the challenges together.
