Coto de Caza - New Election Laws - Call for Candidates

June 15, 2006  

 

Dear CZ Board Members:  

 

In July, 2006 the new state law governing HOA elections will take effect.  That means that shortly thereafter, the Board should send out information concerning the mechanisms the Board intends to implement in 2007 to comply with this law.   I believe this law requires automatic revision of our governing documents to comply with the law as has occurred in the past when our governing documents conflicted with a new law.  My hope is that our suppliers and the Board will not attempt to play games with this new law trying to retain our Delegate system, cumulative voting etc. when the law clearly requires direct popular elections for HOA's after July, 2006.  If there are any games, I believe we should organize and raise money to go to court to get compliance.  I certainly would be willing to start writing checks because I believe direct popular elections for CZ are critical.  So, I would say that by no later than the end of September, we should have information from the CZ Board concerning implementation of this new law so we can begin to properly get ready for next year's election. 

 
This e-mail is officially also a Call for Candidates to run against incumbents Varo/Mezger/Hill if they choose to run again in 2007.  Mitch Hill should resign now given that he has missed so many Board Meetings.   Joe Morabito
