Ah, dear Rancho Santa Fe. All eyes are on ye.
What happens when a board president tries to represent homeowners in a dispute over millions of bucks going into the pockets of managers? Well, you just slap her upside the head. And toss that woman off.
According to the story linked below, Ann Boon, president of Rancho Santa Fe Homeowners Association just wanted to raise a few questions about the unusually high salaries going to HOA managers. The salaries were approved IN SECRET by a three member minority of the seven-member board. And Boon was never included in discussions of the eye-popping salaries.
No problem. The board members protecting the management company against any questions of inappropriate behavior just voted Boon out of office. It was 5-2. Majority rules.
Egads, you would never find this kind of behavior in a traditional government institution where the public has a right to know how money is being spent. But once you’re inside of the phony ‘governments’ of Homeowners Association all bets are off.
