Earlier in the month, in addition to providing us with a free trip around the sun, the New Year once again brought Vizcaya our required annual board elections. The board consists of 5 seats that were contested for by 8 owners. The first 3 seats were won by Jerrold Schwartz, Michael Lynch and me. The candidates for the last 2 open seats ended up in an unusual 3-way tie between Candis Daly, Gene Ferris and Randy Randolph. The tie created the necessity of a future run-off election to be held in February for the election of the two remaining open seats. As required by State Condo statutes, you will shortly receive ballots and voting information for the run-off election between the three candidates. As always, every vote matters and we strongly encourage you to participate in the forthcoming election.
At an organizational meeting held after the first election, the three new Directors elected the following officers: President – Lee Corson, Vice President & Secretary – Jerrold Schwartz and Treasurer – Michael Lynch.
Our Vizcaya property is now in its fourth decade of existence (ancient in dog years) with all the expected aging issues that one would expect in a 31+ year old facility. In the coming weeks, we will be in the process of prioritizing our maintenance needs and establishing realistic budget requirements to insure the continued quality of our property. We will exercise sound business judgement and follow established management practices. As we develop our evolving plans, we will always insure that our efforts respect the wishes of our community’s majority.
Speaking for the new board, we appreciate your confidence, support and good wishes and can assure you that we will use our best efforts to protect your investment, insure your security and provide a collegial community of neighbors in our special community.
Please feel free to contact any of our board members if you have any questions.
