Hello, my name is Terry Coon and I am excited to be running for a position on our HOA Board! I have lived in our outstanding community for the past 9 years moving here from the Pacific Northwest. I have a BS & MS in Elementary Education with a Special Education minor from Portland State University, 1970 and an earned Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from Gonzaga University, 1992.
My career included teaching, school principal, education director of both curriculum and special education. In each position I held leadership roles in which I learned how to interact with varied audiences to bring about consensus through negotiation and compromise, both budget building and management, how to listen, and how to interact with a variety of persons including students, parents, fellow teachers and administrators, state department personnel, and state legislators.
Since moving to SCSH I have been on the Emergency Preparedness Committee and also currently serve on the Information Advisory Committee. On that committee, I monitor “Ask a Question/Make a Suggestion” and get residents the answers they deserve and forward resident suggestions to appropriate personnel.
I believe the Board has an obligation to keep residents informed of Board business in a transparent and honest manner. Executive sessions need to be held only when it is necessary while strictly adhering to California code. Board members should work cooperatively with other Board members to keep our community attractive; our home values high; our finances strong while maintaining dues in a reasonable manner. If elected, I promise to represent all members of our community. Thank you for your support.
Re-elect Big John MacDonnell
Two years ago, when I threw my hat into the ring and ran for Director on our HOA Board of Directors, I was very succinct in my Nomination form saying:
“I am running for the Board, not for myself but for the Community”.
It’s hard to believe two years have passed since that announcement. During that time, I was elected by a majority of the other Directors to serve as President of the Association, and I have worked very hard to fulfill my pledge to work for the Community and not for myself.
I have learned a lot about the operations of our very special Association, always making decisions based on what is best for the “Community as a whole,” and always keeping in mind my fiduciary obligations. I have worked to that end with my fellow directors. Although we have not always agreed on the path best taken on every issue of the many that the Board is constantly required to deal with, I believe our community is better now than it was when I felt compelled to run. I also believe the atmosphere in the Community is better, more relaxed, and the functioning of the Board is more transparent, and the Board is more open to input from the homeowners.
As I say, I have learned quite a lot, and, as they say, there is no substitute for experience. I have decided that I would like to Volunteer that experience for another twoyear term doing so with the support of my wife, and family, and the help and support, and appreciation of many homeowners for my past efforts. Of course, experience can be a very subjective thing, and if your experience with me as your President and a Director is favorable, I humbly ask for your support and request that you vote for me for another two-year term. If re-elected, the position I will hold in the future Board will be determined not by me but by fellow Directors, following our Governing Documents. Whatever that position is I pledge to use all my best efforts to keep the community going in a good direction while maintaining and improving what we have and enjoy, consistent with good financial management as approved by the majority of homeowners. I pledge to you my promise to work hard with all of our Directors to continue improving our piece of Paradise.
Thanks for the opportunity to serve this great Community.
My name is Moira Macleod-Foster. I have served on our board for the last year and 8 months. I am running for re- election for the privilege of continuing to serve as a director on our Board. I have served our community as your Treasurer. I am originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba , Canada. I have resided in our community for 6 years and I love living here.
My qualifications are as follows:
I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Pepperdine University.
I spent a total of 30 years with Bank of America, 28 years as a Vice President in retail banking and 2 years with Bank of America’s Wealth and Investment Management Group as a Senior Client Manager.
I held two SEC Licenses
Upon my retirement from Bank of America, I was recruited by a former client, JFFD, CPAS an accounting firm. My primary responsibilities were interacting with high profile clients. I was responsible for analyzing client information. I prepared complex tax returns for partner review. I also prepared financial statements for various entities.
As your treasurer, I am the Board liaison to our Finance Advisory Committee. This committee reviews all HOA contracts, procurement requests over $5,000.00, all HOA financials as well as the annual budget.
I have also served as the Board liaison to our Landscape Advisory Committee. This committee provides oversight to all common area landscape improvements.
I also serve on the SCSH Creative Arts Club Board as the treasurer. I am very active in social club affairs and events.
Our Board has worked together on all matters that come before us. We strive to make decisions that are beneficial for our entire community. I believe it is of the utmost importance to conduct one’s self with integrity and honesty.
I take great pride in the fact that our community is wonderful and one of the best places to liv in the entire valley. Our HOA dues continue to be one of the lowest in the valley. Our financial position is strong. We have amply funded our reserve accounts.
I believe wholeheartedly that I am more than qualified to serve a 2nd term on our Board in whatever capacity the Board determines, I will serve to the best of my ability. I respectfully ask you for your vote. Thank you for your consideration.
I have been a resident for 11 years. I am currently beginning my second year as President of Lady Putters, a charter club, having previously completed 2 years as Vice President. I am Secretary of the IAC committee which I volunteered for and was approved 4 months ago. I was instrumental in obtaining the “pool chiller” which was a battle. Several years ago I presented a plan to then HOA President to expand the outside seating, purchase of more umbrellas and easy access to the bathrooms for the newly completed Santa Rosa pool. It took 1 1/2 years but it was successfully completed. Each board meeting I was able to gain more support by enlisting more residents to join me.
I am persistent, in a positive way, and a good listener wishing to do the best for my neighbors. I am capable of making difficult decisions, if necessary, while doing the research to complete each task.
