A day or so ago, President Gary Tucker announced that there will be no election this year. The reason for this is that there are just four people running for four seats, hence no contest. I guess I’m not too surprised. For the most part, everything is going very well, the building and grounds look great, and most people are happy.
Three of those running are incumbents: long-time Secretary, Rosemary Smith, Vice President Lew Werth, and Charles Lea, recently appointed to serve the balance of Laura Nettleton-West’s term after her resignation. Charles is probably not well known to many of the owners, but he is known to me, and I wrote about him in my February 8th blog.
The final candidate is Jim Dobbs, whom I have known for many years, as his time at the Hawks Nest overlaps with mine. You may remember Jim from his run for the board last year. He is an attorney and has extensive board leadership experience in his church, his condominium and several non-profits.
As you know, the other three members of the board are President Gary Tucker, Treasurer, Charlie Weidner, and long-time director, Alden Corley.
I feel that the two newcomers will work well with the rest of the board, and will help provide continued good performance and leadership.
On the staff front, the revolving door is still spinning. According to President Tucker’s announcement, several members of the staff have left our employ. Since I am down here, I know that it was two housekeepers, one maintenance man and the Facilities Manager, Carmen. In his announcement, Gary did not give any details about these departures, and I have no direct knowledge regarding the reasons for them either. Gary suggested that any questions be directed to him or Kathy Clausen.
