Bruce Marley

I am Bruce Marley, current HOA Board member, and candidate for re-election to our Board. I have enjoyed my time on our Board, as Treasurer, and would appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve our community. During this past two years the Board has worked hard at transparency, professionalism, collegiality, and to collectively make the right decisions for the community. In doing so, I believe this Board has contributed to a kinder and more friendly community. Yes, our Board has had to deal with challenging issues, has not always agreed on every issue, but in the end, we have each worked to the benefit of the entire community.

Our Board has been involved in making 100's of decisions over the past two years, whether personnel, contracts, or how to spend our money. To that end, the financial decisions we have made account for between $1.1 and $1.3 Million of our dollars spent each month, between daily operations and Replacement Fund expenditures! Additionally, our Board works with Comerica Securities in managing over $13 Million of investments, as part of the Replacement Fund. I take great pride as your Treasurer in championing fiscal conservatism, accountability, and sound decision making. Remember, we are a $32 Million city within the city of Indio! My career in banking and finance, and community service, have prepared me for this very important role as a member of our HOA Board.

I commit to continue to work hard with all Board members for the greater good of all Sun City Shadow Hills residents. I take my fiduciary responsibility seriously to make honest, thoughtful decisions on all matters that come before the Board, regardless of any personal interests or allegiances. I ask for your vote.

Thank You.
