Editorial by Vicki Ross

Parker Reid has not been at 2 board meetings. There was no announcements about his absence.  I happen to live on the same floor as he does and when I saw him I asked “how come you missed the meetings” he then replied that he resigned as he felt he could not accomplish anything on this particular board, it was a waste of his time. I was sorry to hear that as I think we should have people on the board that challenge other opinions that they might disagree with. Parker has managed other buildings and is an attorney but found himself alone against a solid clique that exists on the board. We only have two other people that I feel trust in will disagree if they feel the need.

Now for the rumor that is circulating in the building that he resigned as he is ill. This is far from the truth as I stated above the reason why he resigned. The latter rumor makes the board as a whole look better?

Another matter, we have a website that has never anything on it. When I was up north I would have loved to know if someone that lived in the building had passed away, the progress of the parking lot project, and what happened at the board meetings. I thought that was what the website was for. When the talk of the beginning of the website began I suggested a blog as it is free, easily managed and you could upload info very easily. Now we spent money mounting a website and paying someone a monthly fee to maintain it which in the budget is $1200 for the year. Why???

That’s my 2 cents!

Website Calendar Not Being Updated

The Portofino South website calendar as of today does not show the board meeting from last week or the board meeting coming up tomorrow. Board Meetings would be a wonderful addition to the resident’s calendar online, especially for those owners who can not see paper postings at the building due to part-time residency or renting their units.
