Letter: Loss of credibility


The Prescott Country Club Property Owners Association (POA) held an election for two vacancies on its board of directors. Four candidates put forth their names, and the two with the highest number of votes were duly elected.

A few days later, another of the directors gave notice of their resignation, and that position was to be filled at the next meeting, a few days later.

At that meeting to appoint a replacement for the resigning director, the person who came in third place, eleven votes short of taking one of those two earlier elected positions, was completely overlooked by the board of directors in favor of a person who had not previously entered the election process.

So the person who had garnered 210 votes at the original (month-earlier) election lost out to a person who only got four votes at the appointment meeting.

This is why there is a complete lack of trust amongst the membership towards the actions of the POA board of directors.

This is why members don’t go to monthly meetings and shun the POA and its various poorly thought out programs and events. When 210 voters lose out to four voters, there is something very wrong, morally corrupt and dysfunctional at the POA.
