To: The FOA, ACT and The Club Sponsors of Ms. Seelen
The Posting is still in both places, so here is the rebuttal. Otherwise, you would have had a quiet weekend.
From: Mr. Duncan, who isn’t going anywhere, win or lose
I’ll begin with the last item in this posting and work my way to the top, if that’s all right with you.
The whisper campaign/attacks on myself and other non-golf supported candidates has emanated from at least one ACHOA committee chair, and a number of club members, who have walked through neighborhoods claiming among other things that we want to raise dues, we’re against the golf course, we’re against pickle ball, we’re behind the erroneous cards mailed by a group called Better Friends Of ArrowCreek, that I am the web master of arrowcreek411 and post despicable things about the club, that the CNA logo was copied from ACT (a fact that is absolutely NOT true as the CNA logo was made from MS Word clip art prior to any ACT formation), and that my vision of the community is a throwback to the developer’s 1997 vision. All of these untruths perpetuated in the latest posting by Joyce Seelen. It’s a little late to curb. To give you the specific names of the individuals spreading these falsehoods, which they most definitely can deny, isn’t worth my time.
So, let’s talk to the ‘conflict of interest’ that seems to have caught attention. Since there are two ‘communities’ within ArrowCreek, one centered around the golf club and then everyone else, the past representatives to the ACHOA Board were drawn from club members. When members competed for the board they could count on receiving sufficient support to become Directors. When non-members competed for the board they had to overcome members’ affiliations. So, now it comes to pass that the entire ArrowCreek community is involved and due to the past dominance of ‘The Club,’ there is suspicion that membership could be to the detriment of the entire community. Now, is that a conflict of interest? Not according to Ms. Segerblom and most certainly not according to the law. Is there an ethical line here? Perhaps. Scare tactic, not intended.
The Better Friends of ArrowCreek Postcards. I’m pretty certain that Ben Collins doesn’t check with Joyce when he posts a response on one of the web sites other than he’s going to do just that. So, Mrs. Duncan has that same freedom and flexibility and she has also been attacked on the Next-Door web site and I’m certain her response was the one you captured below. Yes, I know who did the cards and yes we attempted to steer them in a different direction to no avail. On-the-other-hand, I have yet to see any of the four club backed candidates disavow the ACT writings, flyers and Next-Door diatribes against myself, Roger or Carlos. We have certainly dis-avowed the post cards that your supporters continue to say we generated, WHICH WE DID NOT GENERATE.
Pickle ball. Why this continues to crop up is beyond me. I wrote a simple request to the BOD and you turned it into a major issue. The court is done and we have neighbors now at odds with one another via security calls and complaints. Why this wasn’t handled quietly and became public?? That wasn’t my intent or doing.
Water Rights. Once again ACT, like the blog post, comes forward with a statement from a member of the community saying we should obtain legal counsel based on a false premise that we don’t have Water Rights. This post was done in support of the same four candidates. My advocating a meeting with TMWA to discuss their audit findings and get data for review certainly saves the legal expenses of finding we are already bound by the Water Agreement referenced in our CC&Rs.
By the way, we are only talking about .029 acre-feet per lot.
So, let’s get the record straightened out and cease the Mr. Duncan is the evilest thing to ever walk the earth.
Ron Duncan – Who two years ago stated, “win or lose, I wasn’t going anywhere.” I’m at the end of the road. I still am.
