Letter: Were current residents association board members elected properly?

Dear editor:

In an email this week to all members of the Chautauqua Residents Association concerning the election of directors at the organization's recent annual general meeting, it was acknowledged that the association board “… did not conduct the election properly and so, there were no changes.”

This interpretation of the bylaws caused the three new proposed directors to stand down and two existing directors to resign in protest. 

I would like to point out that I believe the returning directors must also be elected annually, so in fact, it is likely that none of the board members, including the president and secretary-treasurer, were properly elected. 

I would also point out that there are likely remedies to this problem other than calling for another election at this time. The focus of the so-called returning directors is doing things right. What happened to doing the right things?  

I am writing to you because there is no other way of communicating with CRA members.

Paul Weiss
