I never thought I would ever say this, but I have absolutely no interest in who or what runs for the Sun City Anthem Board of Directors.
Over the past 2 years, in my estimation, the actions of the many Boards have shown they no longer “call the shots”, but instead are “ruled” by a lawyer in association with a C.E.O. who have, with the full assistance and backing of a devious and unethical blogger whose past baffles many to allow him such influence, created an atmosphere of distrust combined with disgust.
Nonetheless, “it is what it is”, it is their community, not ours, and the actions of the past year have destroyed even the most fervent of us who believed that somewhere, somehow, good and honest individuals would prevail and act as neighbors who cared for one another.
They do not. Those we made every reason to trust, betrayed us.
A loving and kind individual whose record of community service, Rana Goodman, was sabotaged by unscrupulous individuals, and was coerced and condoned by the weakness of various Board members who frankly, don’t deserve mention in the same sentence with the distinction she brought so many seniors in her never ending battle to achieve guardianship reform.
Trust in governance all but totally disappeared as a result.
We have a younger crowd that emerging in our community and it is with hope they might recognize those who have not acted in their behalf; however, after watching the actions of this Board for the past year, the hope is a flicker of what it once was.
As a result, I for one, will take the Director’s ballot and pitch it in the recycle bin once received and live a calm and peaceful life where friendship will always take precedence over power.
