Anybody on this board who owns land in TR & plans (& knows how) to vote on the upcoming issues?If so, I'd love to trade brief thoughts, and perhaps get your advice enlisting a proxy, as I think I'll be out of the country by the time I get my ballot.[trying desperately not to post this same message on one of the numerous, and sometimes combustible, Yahoo groups]TIA...
Thanks for the insight Robert & Kathleen.A convincing argument (imho) to vote against this Article-3 proposal...
Soooo...continuing my soliloquy...after reading many of the TR Yahoo groups last night, I have changed my mind again seems that (at best) the BOD has presented a flawed ambiguous plan of action for selling the TR assets. And it seems that they can't even do that without getting this proxy vote passed.So I guess the TR landowners have the leverage here. By voting no to the proxy amendment it will (I guess) force the BOD to come up with a better plan.And, why do they say the road maintenance contract with Porter is "temporary?" How temporary is it likely to be if they sell off the road maintenance equipment? And why is the ex-ranch mgr suddenly working for Porter? Coincidence? Who knows...I am beginning to see the [warped] logic behind not paying one's assessment fees. I suspect I will not pay them next year...at this rate POATRI will implode & cease to exist long before they come after a relatively recent non-payer like me. I suspect I will be like number #742 on the 'collections' list or something like that.Do I agree with some of the lunatic-fringe black-helicopters cries that the BOD is corrupt? Don't know, probably not. But, at best, the BOD is certainly inept.And I think financially starving them into non-existence is looking like a pretty good plan right about now...So, umm...I'm voting "NO" to the proxy amendment. -- monologue off --
I would be careful about calling us the "lunatic fringe" as Alida did.
