The official MCA absentee ballot – I vote NO on everything

Not surprising, the ballot is as confusing as everything else the MCA does and I’m voting NO to all proposed changes.   They SHOULD have included the CURRENT bylaws sections that they want to change.  Also, the most current version of the bylaws dated 5/26/12 states:

SECTION 3. The By-Laws Committee shall recommend to the Board of Governors the proposed changes to the by-laws which, in turn, shall be presented to the voting members at the annual meeting. The proposals will be published in the March/April issue of the Meadview Monitor, the official publication of the Association.

Why would they want to add another section stating that only the membership can change the bylaws?  Does this existing paragraph need clarification?  What’s wrong with what we have?

I also voted NO on the late fee because I don’t know what they will be replacing. I sure hope the new board will improve the voting process.

They need to include the current version, the proposed changes and they need to explain WHY they want the proposed changes.

Of course I also voted NO on the dues increase.

FYI, at the last board meeting I informed the board that the zip code for the absentee ballot return address is incorrect, but they did NOT bother to fix that and the instructions still state to mail the ballots to 88444.

So here is my ballot:

2013-MCA-Ballot

Remember that you need to have a key card to vote in person.

This requirement is violating the articles and has been made up by these MORONS to keep people from voting.  It happened to me last year, don’t let it happen to you!

The deadline for absentee ballots is THIS FRIDAY, 2 pm.  \

If you can’t make this deadline, you must purchase a $10 key card (NO REFUNDS!) to be able to vote.

Again, I hope the new board will get rid of all the corruption, fraud and illegal activities PROMPTLY as I have a number of absentee owners ready to vote to DISSOLVE the MCA.

  1. I agree that a before and after should have been stated for these revisions. Moreover you are correct that the revisions should have been in the monitor.would this make them out of order??

  2. You should have expected no less when Helene Brown Williams raised that ugly head at last convened meeting. Don’t say I did not warn you all. Sell and move closer to a gas station and store

  3. Steve, Helene had NOTHING to do with this. The election was organized by the current board.

    I am actually really looking forward to using the MCA facilities, that nice big screen TV and especially the kitchen. We’ll have all sort of events, from movie screenings to cooking locally grown food and pot lucks — all open to the COMMUNITY.

    And Rick, not sure what you mean by “out of order.” It all depends on which if any rules they follow. And that’s one of the first items I’ll request to put on the agenda, following Roberts Rules (always, not just when it’s convenient for the board).

    I don’t think there’s much of a point to challenging the election results unless the new board turns out to be Ray, AJ, O’Keeffe et al.

    I don’t have the slightest idea who was on the bylaws committee, when it met, etc. I know at least some of the candidates want to conduct an audit.

    I see lots of changes for the MCA. I want O’Keeffe’s contract terminated and have the old board reimburse those expenses. They CONSPIRED to not post the job publicly and when asked at the board meeting who the company that submitted the ONLY bid was, they LIED about not knowing!!! — and I have it all on video tape. I’d also like the old board to reimburse all legal fees incurred on my behalf.

    Well, we’ll see what happens

  4. From the bylaws:

    “Ballots must be returned to the Secretary of the Association in a provided envelope signed by the voting member”

    I don’t see a place to sign.
