IF you want candidates who implement YOUR vision of the community, and
Not the FOA’s/golf club owners’, and golf club members’ plan.
Not Al Liebman’s plan who wanted us to own all of it: the golf courses and the club house.
Not John Krisch’s plan who originally voted NO on the golf club purchase, but whose allegiance is anyone’s guess now that he officially has become a club member.
Not Robin Rakusin’s and Joyce Seelen’s plan, both golf club members, who
· For more than 2 years did everything they could to have you, ArrowCreek residents, buy the dirt of the golf course that the owners, members and their guests get to play on! Fact.
· Had no concerns about potentially raising the HOA fees to more than $300 or $400/month and ask for special assessments to pay for it. Fact.
Their vision of YOU pay/THEY and their friends play goes on.
· They were cheerleaders for the pickle ball course. Any resident, including resident golf club members, can invite outside guests to play and use our facilities. The leader of the pickle ball club, a golf club member, said at a board meeting: “I can invite as many guests as I want! Fact.
· Per eye witness reports, signatures for the pickle ball court were collected at a table at the club house. Fact.
· The Social Committee, mostly golf club members, when presenting their recommendation to the HOA board, excluded voices in opposition. Fact.
· The pickle ball leader also organized a pickle ball tournament with over 20 non-resident participants without obtaining proper approval. Security put an end to that. Fact.
The FOA/ACT site claims their candidates have “independence.” In a post to fellow golf club members, signed by “A Community Team– aka ACT”, Tim Bailey says: I would like candidates on the Board of the ACHOA who are in favor of working with “The Club at ArrowCreek” as good neighbors. We live in the same community and “we depend on each other.”
Nobody disagrees that we need to work with each other for the benefit of all. However, this vision of “dependence” creates the potential for conflict of interest for the FOA/ACT endorsed candidates, because the FOA/ACT candidates all are members and have other strong affiliations with the golf club. The interests of the golf club will not always be congruent with the interests of the community at large.
The FOA/ACT site claims that at this juncture, our community needs the experience of their candidates. They drove the cart into the ditch! – Deeply dividing our community. We need a new set of eyes, and new ideas.
Unless you really believe a leopard can change its spots, please vote for: Ron Duncan, Roger Sheppard, and Carlos Mejia.
And PLEASE share this email with all of your ArrowCreek neighbors and friends!
