Ending Term Limits: One More Hurdle to GoOn June 3rd the UCO Executive Board voted 17-1 in favor of sending the proposal to end term limits to the July 5 Delegates Assembly for a vote. First the petition will be published in the UCO Reporter issue that comes out at the end of June.
Delegates, please be sure to attend July 5th and vote for what you believe is best for the Village. Remember, all this proposal does is give officers a chance to run for re-election beyond the terms currently stipulated in the by-laws. No officer is guaranteed another term. Officers will have to win re-election the old-fashioned way: they'll have to earn it.
At the last Officers Meeting, Dom Guarnagia reminded us that only 13 people ran for 10 Executive Board seats in the last election, and Bob Marshall said that he is normally opposed to ending term limits -- except here in Century Village where it is so hard to find people with the time or willingness to serve. Simply: we don't have enough qualified people who want to do these jobs, and we can't afford to waste the talents of those who do.
For now, please let us know your thoughts and we'll see you at this Friday's Delegates Assembly and on July 5.
