All 3 Proposed Documents Were Rejected By Wide Margins

Approval of the Chris Allison-crafted governing documents – the declaration, the articles of incorporation, and the bylaws – failed. It took the board until Monday, June 19th – 9 days after the election – to announce the results. The graph below summarizes what many suspected:

With respect to the vote on the Declaration, we deducted the reported 641 Miller & Smith “Trust” lots from the reported Yes votes for the Declaration to present a fairer picture.

In the end, more than the approval of documents failed. Chris Allison and the board failed to make a genuine effort to promote democracy by adopting voting standards different from recent Lake Holiday elections. Chris Allison and the board failed to listen to widespread discontent in the community, evidenced by the numerous “Vote No” signs on Redland Road and at all of the mail stops. They failed to sell the community on their documents, despite their free Miller & Smith hot dogs and other aggressive sales efforts that continued right through the meeting of members on June 10th.

Chris Allison Admits He Was Wrong

In February, Chris Allison wasted Association funds to send around a 3 page personal attack letter targeting the principals of Ogunquit – the “Mr. Murray” letter. In it Chris Allison falsely claimed that the first communication the Board had with Ogunquit was a letter from our attorney claiming that we suffered $4 million in damages, followed by a lawsuit for the same $4 million. He falsely alleged that the claim for damages was “payable to him.” He left a link to this personal attack letter on the Association’s website for many weeks. Chris Allison’s attack had a fundamental flaw: it was not true.

Welcome To My Condo

We mentioned in our post on Chris Allison’s broken promise that there was an excellent article on The Summit Advisor that provided a powerful recap of issues at Lake Holiday. That article prompted us to do a little more research on the adoption of Goldberg’s Rules of Order by the Chris Allison-led board in October of 2005. Previously, the Associated conducted meetings under Robert’s Rules of Order. Just a minor change, right? Not by a long shot. Choose the rules and you control the outcome.

Questions Chris Allison Should Answer for Members

1. Chris, why let Miller & Smith vote the Trust lots when the owner of these lots is not a member and is not paying dues?

FYI: This was not clearly disclosed to members, especially when one considers that Chris Allison and the Board expressed exactly the opposite position last spring. This seems to put the interest of a non-dues paying entity which is not even a member for those lots ahead of the interests of dues paying members whose interests the Board has a fiduciary responsibility to protect.

2. Chris, why is the 6/10/06 vote on the new declaration at large instead of section-by-section?

FYI: Section 6A has 259 lots, and none of them are owned by Miller & Smith. Chris Allison and the Board’s decision to vote on the declaration at large, instead of section-by-section, means that non-owners will be voting to amend another owner’s declaration. Combining at large voting with allowing Miller & Smith to vote over 700 non-dues paying lots means that voters in every section will be swamped! In Section 4B, there are only 16 lots. How will these lot owners have any chance of a fair election?
