Disturbed by the feedback the board is getting about service providers, the board president writes in the May 2006 issue of the CZ President’s Letter: “what makes matters worse is that one would think that these individuals would know better”.  Then the president asks a rhetorical question:  And we wonder where our children learn such behavior?”


Public Service Announcement – OPERA PACIFICA  

Certainly a valid question, on the surface.  


However, as is the case with just about any argument, it is a good idea to figure out who is trying to call the kettle black.  In this case, the caller is none other than the Coto de Caza board of directors, who called CHP management extortionists in public- now according to the FBI, extortion is a crime – thus, the Coto de Caza board of directors is calling CHP management criminals.  For the record, the rest of the board agreed with the president.


We think this may be a case of double-standard:  Apparently it is OK for the Coto de Caza board of directors to call CHP management “extortionists” in public.  It is also OK to turn over control of a board meeting to the producers of a Reality TV show, and deny any access to the CHP to conduct public awareness programs to reduce teen driver accidents.  So now we ask:  “What is the message Coto kids get from these and other similar actions”?


This is the same person who fired the CHP for pro-active traffic control, without a suitable alternative, only to see the traffic accident rate double each year, record its first traffic fatality in the last ten years, and its second one only three months later.  

The same person who let road certification expire on all roads within Coto de Caza, so there is no effective traffic patrol, even when the board was forced by residents to bring back the CHP.


The same person who fired the largest security company in the worlds, replaced it with smallest one in the region, and when asked for evidence of due diligence, was unable to provide any!


The same person who has used association money to publicly promote service providers, but has failed to take action when complaints have been filed.  Indeed, the Coto de Caza board president is right in asking the question:  And we wonder where our children learn such behavior?” – the response” From the Coto de Caza board of directors!
