Winds of Change in Coto de Caza?

Winds of Change in Coto de Caza?
By Joseph Morabito, former member, CZ Master Association Board of Directors.

May 30, 2007

Hello All: It gives me great pleasure to congratulate CZ’s new leadership, Board President Zipperman, Board Vice President Yocham and Board Treasurer Hylka. I am very optimistic that this new leadership team will be open to fresh ideas, proper management of the Association in accordance their fiduciary responsibility and our governing documents and more transparency as required by new state laws. Clearly, the last Board election gives Steve, Xochi and Vince a mandate to pursue change, reform and a new agenda. We can now officially refer to the CZ Board as the Zipperman/Yocham Board. In doing their work, our new leaders should never worry about giving credit to others for good ideas because in the end only the CZ Board can turn good ideas into reality. As such, the CZ Board will be credited for their accomplishments no matter who in the community may have advanced an idea.

And, I want all to know that if I occasionally I refer to Steve as “The Zipper” or Xochi as “That Woman” since she is the only woman on the Board there to discipline the other boys, it is with no malicious intent; but rather because I have a completely uncontrollable sarcastic sense of humor. Let’s face it when you are fat, bald, short and old like I am about the only things I have working for me are great teeth, which are only visible when I am smiling, a very, very, very high IQ and my sense of humor. So, I just can’t resist the punch line. JM

P.S. I would like to thank Mr. Varo and Mr. Mezger for getting control of the Welcome Home Center, though we probably paid too high a price for it and cleaning up the transponder mess that the Glisson/Rose Board that I served on left behind so that now we can charge non-CZ Members much higher transponder fees which was not possible before. These were real accomplishments during the Varo/Mezger years that should be recognized and applauded. But, now I am pleased to say that thankfully the Varo/Mezger era is OVER.

Hi Joe:

Like you, we applaud the winds of change. Being a volunteer in any CZ capacity, is like constantly wearing a big target - not much fun, but comes with the territory.

Following your advice, we trust in the Yocham/Zipprman era. However, in less than 100 days we will verify, if this is what the community wants and needs. Since there was no dissention coming from the Yocham/Zipperman camp during the Varo/Mezger regime, the fledgling board has a lot to prove – namely that it has its own convictions. Buzz
