2008 Coto de Caza Elections - Next Chapter, the Climax

2008 Coto de Caza Elections - Next Chapter, the Climax

March 16, 2008

The next chapter in the 2008 CZ elections is scheduled to be written the first week in April, 2008, when the CZ kangaroo court convenes to elect CZ district delegates.

Traditionally CZ boards have treated the event nonchalantly, so much so that, a good number of CZ residents are not even aware that delegate selections are taking place - we have fielded a number of questions from residents wanting to know what the process is to volunteer as delegates, for example. It is also fair to say that the CZ board dedicates more ink time to socialist agenda items, delegate elections. After all, delegates are restricted to a one-year term and they only vote for potential board members and vote to recall the board if necessary.

The problem is that the use of district delegates is no where near emblematic of a representative local government – delegates do not have to disclose how they vote, and they certainly do not have to vote the will of the residents in their district. More a symbol of total lack of accountability. Take for instance the results of the most recent elections to consider direct popular elections:

70% of CZ members who voted support Direct Popular Elections, and

69% of Delegates who voted support Direct Popular Elections and

Allegedly, the majority on the Board supports Direct Popular Elections, so

what happened? Direct Popular Elections amendment failed!

It has been our position that as long as CZ continues to support an arcane system designed to keep a vested majority in total control of the association affairs, district delegate elections are more important that voting for CZ board of directors, for obvious reasons.

Hence we suggest that CZ residents vote only for those delegates absolutely, positively committed to Direct Popular Elections and delegates willing to stand up in public and in private and voice their position. If you do not have enough information, feel free to send us a note at
