I am writing to follow up problems associated with
our 2012 election.
As I mentioned in my emails of July 19, 2012, December
6, 2012, and January 14, 2013:
I did not receive a receipt for my vote during
the last election (although you said they were sent
twice); I want to know if my vote was counted, and
if not, why not. I also understand that a fraudulent
proxy was sent on behalf of one of our neighbors;
I want to know if the fraudulent vote counted.
While I do realize and appreciate that election-related
issues were raised at the last meeting, I also understand
that no plan was made to investigate these very serious
As I stated in my message to you on April 24, 2011,
and again on June 25, 2012, and again on January 14,
If the past is any indication, our Board would
be inclined to let this issue slide. Our past Election
Committees deferred to new administrations, and
our new administrations purportedly wanted to “move
forward” rather than investigate the “past”.
In light of the irregularities that have plagued
every one of our recent elections, it is clear that
this is not a successful strategy. .. When we face
problems in our elections year after year, it stops
looking like honest mistakes, conflicting priorities,
or a desire to “move forward”, and starts
to look like deliberate foot-dragging and obstruction.
At this point, it is clear that our Board of Directors
has a perpetual unwillingness to acknowledge, let
alone investigate the fraud that has been in evidence
for for the past few years. This certainly encourages
the fraudster(s) by sending the message that the SPC
Board of Directors will not investigate election-related
fraud under any circumstance!
With that in mind, I respectfully claim that avoiding
an investigation of the documented problems in our
past election represents an abnegation of the due
diligence that you are obligated to perform. Enough
with the delays and deferments! I ask that you and
the rest of the Board set a precedent by investigating
the problem with the diligence and attention it deserves.
