Coto de Caza BOD Elections – Down to Brass Tax

We regret to announce that Brett Muiter is withdrawing from the 2006 race.
Due to personal issues, we have been informed that Brett is dropping out from the 2006 Coto de Caza elections. Of the initials six candidates, the remaining ones could not represent a more stark contrast:

For Status Quo
George Haggard:
Long time Coto resident. Has served in the Varo/Mezger CZ boards and like other members of the current board, hold district delegate seat, as well as seat on the board.

Steven Zipperman:
Three year Coto resident and practicing real estate lawyer. Has indicated sympathy with board’s regarding public safety, and has admitted lack of historical perspective in this area.

For Change:
Xochitl Yocham:
Long time Coto resident (16+). Experienced running multi-million dollar product line. Feels “ is important to bring new and independent views into the governance of Coto….”

Betty H. Olson, PhD
Long time Coto resident (16+ years). Professor on main campus and Medical School at UC Irvine.

Assuming there is a minimum number of “hit and run” district delegates (those who for ulterior motives vote for status quo, then hide), the community is actually well-served by Brett’s withdrawal as independent delegates have a real choice, and less of a chance that their vote will be diluted through the use of cumulative voting.

We hope/expect to see Brett back, but for now, we trust all his issues will be taken care of soon!
