by Bob Shamo – In recent years, the Newsletter Committee has developed a set of pertinent questions for announced candidates to address here, in a special ‘Question and Answer’ story. The questions focused on the candidates’ backgrounds and views, in hopes that readers would then be better able to decide which would be the more capable Board members.
This year is different in that all three announced candidates are current Board members running for re-election. Owners have gotten to know them by attending Board meetings, reading minutes of those meetings, and interacting with them at various town halls and social events. Sheldon Atovsky has summed up Board and management accomplishments in his excellent story, Your Board in Action, found on page __ of this issue.__
So this year, the committee has shortened its list of questions to just three ..
Instead of asking for written responses, we have suggested to candidates that they be open to discussing them at the Meet & Greet the Candidates event on June 3, and then address them specifically at Meet the Candidates Forum on June 7.
The Newsletter Committee urges owners, first, to engage with candidates on these and other issues that may concern them personally .. and second, to vote either by signing, dating, and submitting their proxy forms ahead of time or by personally attending and voting at the June 12 Annual Meeting.
Friends, take note: Whether by proxy or in person, 20% of owners (a quorum) must vote in order for election results to be valid. If you choose not to vote ahead of time by proxy, please do remember to attend and vote at the Annual Meeting.
We share a home here at Park Tower. Please, stay informed and involved. Your voices and your votes matter!
