2022 Election Candidate's Night Information

September 07, 2022 1:06 AM | Deepa Tailor (Administrator)

Hello LPPOA 2022 Election Candidates:

Thank you for your willingness to give so generously of your time to our association.

To aid the community in getting to know you, the Elections Committee has arranged for a “Meet the Candidates” event on Friday evening, Sept 9th from 7pm to 9pm via zoom. This will be your opportunity to offer some details about your candidacy and field questions from the community.

This communique provides the details and process for how the meeting will be conducted.

Please log in at 6:45pm so we can confirm your technology is functioning. We will open the room to the community promptly at 6:58pm. So be sure to be present no later than 6:50 to test your equipment.

Each candidate will be given 3 minutes to introduce themselves and provide an “opening statement.” Following that, we will give each position 15 minutes for Q&A from the community.

The membership will be asked to type their name, street address of the property they own, and questions into the chat and the moderator will present the question to the candidate(s). You are asked to keep your answers to less than 2 minutes so we can get multiple questions and have time for multiple candidates to respond.

We will ask the members to keep to 1 question per candidate. We will also ask that they use the honor system to only ask questions of the 2 leadership positions and the district in which they live. The Elections Committee will attempt to police this but cannot guarantee out of district individuals will be allowed to ask a question of a candidate they cannot vote for.

Paul Cecala will MC and moderate the meeting. Please note, we will be using the mute function if a candidate’s response exceeds the allotted time.

Here is the agenda for the evening:

6:45 – Moderator and Candidates enter call

6:58 - The membership is allowed into the room

7:00 – Paul opens the meeting with 5 minutes of welcoming and explanation of the proceedings.

7:05 – Candidates begin opening statements in the following order (3 minutes per candidate):

          President

          Financial Secretary

          District 1 (note – where there are multiple candidates for any position, you will be called upon in alphabetical order by last name)

          District 2

District 3

District 4

7:32 – Questions for President

7:47 – Questions for Financial Secretary

8:02 – Questions for District 1

8:17 – Questions for District 2

8:32 – Questions for District 3

8:47 – Questions for District 4

9:02 – Paul will thank everyone and close the meeting

*If there is enough interest and candidates are willing to go longer, we can keep the room open and moderated for an additional 30 minutes of Q&A with the goal of addressing questions that were not addressed in the earlier segments for each position.

Some additional comments:

  • ·       We expect professionalism and decorum by all present at all times.
  • ·       At no time will the membership’s microphones be enabled (unmuted).
  • ·       ALL questions will be entered into the chat function of zoom and presented by the moderator to the candidates.
  • ·       This is NOT a debate. You are to address your answer to your actions or plans only. You will not be allowed to rebut or respond to other candidates’ answers.
  • ·       No one will be allowed to speak negatively of anyone else during the proceedings. First offense will be cause for you to be muted. Second offense will be cause for you to be removed from the meeting.
  • ·       Disruptive members or “zoom bombers” will be removed from the meeting.

Finally, the Elections Committee is making accommodations for those who do not have a zoom enabled device. The limited number of members whom we know to not have the technology capable of zoom will be allowed into the Clubhouse to watch and listen to the proceedings. Like everyone else, they will need to write their questions on paper, give them to the Elections Committee Representative who will then type the questions into the chat for the moderator to address. There will be no microphone capabilities at the clubhouse only viewing capability.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email them to:

lppoa.election.2022@gmail.com

We will respond as quickly as possible and within in 48 hours.

Again, thank you for your willingness to serve our community and to participate in this election. We wish you the best of luck.

It will be solely a ZOOM event. Here is the link for the meeting.
