Because of the sheer number of votes, space constraints and costs of printing, The June 2015 printed version of TowerTalk only showed the votes that were “split.” That is to say votes that were not unanimous.

The seriousness of the work of the board is unquestioned as is the amount of time and effort that each member of the board needs to devote in order to exercise their position whole-heartedly. It is with this same seriousness of intention and research that each voting member of the association must approach the election of candidates to the board.
In 2014, only 50.2% of unit owners voted in the election. The News & Social Media Committee hopes that the provision, in more accessible form, of the motions and votes of the board for the past 2 years will help our members to understand the seriousness of the work of the board and consequently the seriousness of our election and will encourage far more members to participate in the election, to ask questions, and to vote.
