    Just cast my vote too!

    Thanks for all your support and confidence.

    I feel like we should all dip a finger in purple ink to celebrate this momentous first step of democracy as WKORV owners. :)

    Argggh. Looks like my unit won't close fast enough to vote. I may have to write in/email in if it comes in at the last minute. Sometimes it's not good to have a common name....

    Proxy questions

    I just got my proxy cards. I plan to vote for Jeff in section two of the yellow card, but I'm not sure what to do about the following items:
    1. Should I enter Jeff's name as the proxy holder on the blue and yellow cards?
    2. On the green card, what are the pros and cons of allowing the Vacation Plan Board to cast a vote for my apartment?

    Jeff mentioned in an earlier post that he was not going to be able to attend the meeting, so he shouldn't be the proxy holder. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Pedro, ... You are correct. You don't give the proxy to someone who won't attend. However, the HOA Board, as proxy holder, has to vote the proxies just as they are told to do by the markings on each proxy. ... eom

    proxy questions

    I am still confused. On the blue form, under Designation of Proxy Holder, what box should be checked?

    On the Yellow form, under the same heading, what box should be checked?

    And on the green form, under Acknowledgement of Proxy, what box should be checked?

    This is of course to help Jeff out. Thanks

    Jeff - I hope you can manage to get transparency from the Board to the Owners.

    Wait a second here...are you a new owner at WKORV and I missed it?

    If so, I hope you got yourself a OFD unit.

    No, never mind. Just ignore my post. I forgot that you only get to vote if you own there. :doh: Blonde moment....

    I own at north and also got a second round of ballots. Since there are three different boards, can someone tell me which specific board Jeff is running for? I believe one of the associations is shared by north and south...

    I sent mine in already but his name is pre-printed as a candidate along with two others.

    I'm not sure if this is right, but this is how I marked my proxies:

    Blue - √-"No proxy holder - proxy to be used for quorum purposes only."

    Yellow -
    Section I - left it blank - the default is "The Board of Directors as a whole, to be voted as decided by a majority of the board."

    Section II - √-Jeff Hyman​

    Green - √-"I do not want the Vacation Plan Board to cast the vote of my apartment at the Condominium Association's Annual Meeting."

    I am not going to mail it until tomorrow so I am open to other suggestions about the proxy votes.

    *Since each proxy is different, and has different choices, I am unsure about the best way to mark them.

    DeniseM, ... I do not have the proxy form in front of me. Thus, it is hard to comment. But, what you have done does not seem correct and, in fact, seems inconsistent.

    Please PM Jeff Hyman to see what he says about what you have done. Then, post his instructions here. He's the one who is running and must have seen the proxy by now.

    I think you want the proxy to count in the election - not just for quorum purposes. Also, if the "Vacation Plan Board" is the WKORV HOA, you want the vote to be cast by them - unless Jeff has arranged for someone else to cast his votes. ... eom

    Why no bio for Jeff?

    I just got my proxy and found it strange that the other two candidates have bios while Jeff only has an objective statement. I worry that non-tuggers will shy away from voting for Jeff because of this omission. I for one would always want to know a person's background before voting for them. If I hadn't seen the posts on this forum, I would never have voted for Jeff based on an objective statement because an objective is nice, but I need to have faith in a person's experience and background (and frankly, lack of connection to Starwood) to get my vote.

    Jeff, did you leave your background off or was it truncated?

    Uggh! The first attack on my campaign strategy. :)

    So, here is the deal. I put myself on the ballot, since I was not one of the Starwood-selected candidates. By law, I was entitled to a 100-word candidate statement. Evidently, Starwood allows its hand-picked candidates to be a bit more verbose in their statements. With only 100 words at my disposal, I decided to hit a couple themes that might resonate with voters who are concerned about sky-rocketing MFs and whether anyone is looking out for the owners' best interests on the BOD. I suspected, correctly, that the other statements would be silent on those points. So, it was going to be dueling bios (some unknown lawyer versus some unknown banker versus some unknown property manager), or two dueling bios versus someone saying something that might strike a nerve. I went for the latter option. We'll see if it works, right?

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    Jeff - can you please comment on my post above about how to mark the 3 proxies? It's unclear to me. Since all 3 proxies have different choices, I'm not sure how to proceed.

    I second this request. We don't want to mark our proxies incorrectly. We want all of our votes for Jeff to count!

    I have the proxies for WKORV-N here and we are not voting for any board members. This means that Jeff is running only for the South units board. Can someone say which proxy his name appears on?
