I am a relative newcomer to SCA, only 2 years of living in this wonderful community. Not unlike big government (city / state / federal), the lack of transparency re. our small BOD is disappointing. Seriously, it’s five local residents managing a 7,100 home community with residents from a pretty common demographic. The board isn’t overseeing a dept. of defense, an education or health depts., etc. they basically run a large planned residential complex. The stories I’ve heard about the shenanigans that goes on behind closed doors and how our dues are handled, albeit taken with some skepticism, sounds like scripting for a soap opera.
Having new faces on the board gives me a level of confidence and optimism but tempered with caution. I would encourage the new board, especially those with minimal political experience (Forrest) to keep your guards up and watch your backs. LISTEN TO YOUR CONSTITUENTS, PLEASE!
I wish the new board well.
