Over the years while living in Sun City Anthem, I have watched boards, one after the other, succumb to selfishness, self-absorption, arrogance and subsequently toss the owners over the abyss. I mostly watched carefully the actions of those who assumed power rather than listened to their lies and empty words uttered during election campaigns because in most instances, actions speak louder than empty words. I have spoken out when I think an issue is important and if voted upon, will hurt the homeowners in our community.
Amongst friends, these corrupt people have often been given nicknames and it surprises me that when mentioned when a virtual stranger enters the conversation, they know exactly whom we are talking about.
I personally have had enough of the outrageous behavior of two individuals whom I shall call the “alternate blogger” and his sidekick, “little sir echo”. Neither one of them, can keep their outlandish comments to themselves and both clearly support the destruction of our community by supporting the outrageous actions of some of the current board members as well as past board members. The following is my opinion of what has currently happened.
It “takes a few good men” to organize the silent majority into being courageous and shout, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”. That is precisely what has occurred now that SCA has gone to self-management. Currently, we are in the middle of a drive to recall four of the seven board members. Many homeowners have and/or beginning to recognize the increasingly destructive behavior of the majority of the current board as well as the outrageous behavior of the edicts being issued by the general manager and her underlings coupled with blatant rudeness to some members of our community.
Neither the “alternate blogger” nor his latest associate, “little sir echo” seem able to stop lying about the basis for the two petitions. But in all reality, a long history of half-truths and blatant lies from both of them has left a stained trail behind them. As a friend pointed out to me recently, it is funny that the alternate blogger now worries publicly regarding the cost of a recall vote. Where was this concern when the BOD’s voted to lend the owners of a past restaurant in Anthem Center $40,000 of association money? Let us remember that he and his spouse were, and still are, huge supporters of having a restaurant at all costs here in SCA. Also remember that the board guaranteed verbally that SCA (the homeowners) would NOT lose money as they obtained personal guarantees from the three owners of the restaurant at that time. The restaurant defaulted, and the board chose not to put a lien on the estate of the owner that had the money. That makes the troll a hypocrite. And now the blogger wants to lead the charge to prevent the recall from going forth and defeat it, BUT he has the absolute gall to ask his cabal for monies to support them in this battle.
I am not surprised at their behavior because both the ” alternate blogge”r and his sidekick, “little sir echo” have rather shady pasts.
All I can say to those that have signed the petitions and/or contemplating signing them, you need to vote your conscious and show concern for all residents in Sun City Anthem. Not everybody can easily absorb increases in dues, and do not want their hard earned savings to front outrageous costs of projects and salaries of employees.
As most owners have said after reading the cover sheets on the two petitions explaining them both, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, where do I sign?”
