notice to/or knowledge of the Association Members.

Petition in Voice of a Vote of
NO CONFIDENCE in
GENERAL MANAGER SANDY SEDDON
The undersigned members of the Sun City Anthem Community Association, Inc. hereby submit to the Board of Directors of the Association a Petition in voice of NO CONFIDENCE in the General Manager Sandy Seddon. Ms. Seddon has riled the community with her arbitrary and capricious acts in the management of the Association and treated the Members with arrogance, disrespect and contempt. We the undersigned expect the Board of Directors to take immediate action.
Ms. Seddon’s Actions:
Failure to obtain the respect of Members. Unprofessional demeanor and conduct.
Springing on Clubs and Groups conducting events conditions and procedures that are discourteous and unnecessarily intrusive with no clear necessity requiring Henderson City business licenses when they are not needed. Then after consultation with Henderson City with the City saying licenses would not be needed insisting that performers/service providers obtain a letter from the City that a license is not required.
Arbitrarily coming up with insurance and/or hold harmless agreements requirements for Club/Groups events with no foundation or explanation to Members.
Imposing unnecessary security guard requirements on club/group events.
Requiring clubs to arrange performers an agent provided by her.
Out of control expenditures leading to an assessment increase in just one year of 10% after a transfer of $600,000 to reserves. A 10% assessment increase in 2017 seemingly based on a flawed Reserve Study. Not operating according to Chapter 2 of the Board Policy Manual.
Inability to reconcile Foundation Assisting Seniors and the Community Service Group issues.
Exercise class fees increased by an exorbitant amount without prior notice to members. A sudden and without notice, cut off of previously purchased monthly activity cards ending their validity immediately without regard to their original purchase date and terms. Termination of the $45 activity card program, causing a great inconvenience to members. These actions taken with the most ill-conceived excuses and resisting simple solutions like a use it or lose it date.
Advertising and selling guest passes for 2 for 1, in June that are structured in the same as the previously cut off $45 passes just four months earlier.
Condoning the unprecedented and multiple acts of vandalism in Anthem Center and not reporting them to the Henderson Police Department.
In meetings with members treating them with disrespect and contempt, totally demonstrating a “my way or the highway” attitude and being discourteous. Ignoring multiple members’ petitions. Mismanaging Members actions and conduct at meetings.
Embarrassed the Association by not letting a vice presidential candidate speak during the 2017 election with little or no justification. Damaging the public image of the Association. Not acting in accordance with Chapter 3 of the Board Policy Manual.
Making unilateral decisions and acting as it the Association was hers and hers alone, to do with whatever she pleased.
