Time to vote in Montgomery Village

Time to vote in Montgomery Village

As you read this blog, ballots for the MVF Board of Directors’ election have been mailed out. This is your opportunity to help the Village by exercising your vote and selecting three Directors to serve for the next three years. Each year, one-third of the nine-member Board of Directors comes up for election.

I was very pleased to see so many Village residents turn out for the Candidates’ Forum on January 22. The complete transcript of the forum is contained in the latest issue of the Village News. I know that many Village residents use this information in making their decision. In addition, the video of the forum has been posted to the MVF website at www.mvf.org.

Voting is done as conveniently as possible. All it takes is a few minutes to read and mark your ballot and then mail it. The postage is already paid. Be sure to sign the outside envelope as directed. Although the ballot is anonymous, the signature and address requirement ensures that the ballot comes from a Village resident.

Ballots must be returned by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 1 to the MVF office on Apple Ridge Road. Counting of the ballots takes place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 2 at the MVF office. Everyone is welcome to watch the ballot counting which is done by a committee of Village residents.

I have marked my Ballot for Sharon Cranford, Scott Dyer and Elena Peterson; I encourage everyone to do the same. Let’s keep moving Montgomery Village forward.

I have to say that I mailed my ballot today all signed properly for the 3 postive attitude candidates. Good luck Ms. Crandford, Mr. Dyer and Ms. Peterson.

Repeating oneself seems to come with age! Hummm! Consider it a 'perk' rather than lapse of memory/dementia. LOL! But I will reiterate what I commented on Don O'Neill's blog.... Elections are over. The verbal sparring can now come to an end, Praise the Lord. But we were still holding our breaths before the election for candidates to show up in our neighborhood. History merely repeated itself as well! Their appearance in this ostracized 'island' of South Village never happened! I knew I should have provided them 'directions' to this end of the Village. Hummm! Well, now that it has been determined that the 'Monarchy' is still intact, let's hope one of them steps up to the plate & the children are surprised by a playground this summer @ basically-barren, human-deserted Lake Whetstone. Will hold my breath yet again!

http://montgomeryvillage.patch.com/announcements/mvf-board-of-directors-approves-villages-largest-capital-project Nice, 'seasonal' enjoyment. Sounds like a 'fantasy to behold'! But sad that a playground @ Lake Whetsone (costing MVF definitely a fraction of the cost) was not an agreed upon done deal right after meeting for such took place 'so very long ago'. Year round enjoyment for all! Sure can't hear that 'money' was the issue in opposing such a simple playground project in comparison to this extensive pool 'major project'. The wide-open spaces @ Lake Whetstone must be 'more sacred' than I thought! Hummm!

MVF, we did vote in our extremely 'politically-motivated' Village election...a Village that has become way too political rather than resident/community welfare motivated. The ink isn't even dry yet since winning candidates were elected and even announced in the Village News as new members of the Board. The wheels of Village News press were even halted and distribution of paper delayed so that announcement of 'grand prize winners', Board members, could be made!!! But, just as in the case of Ms Peterson, before new Board (names and photos could be updated on your web site), another such Board member has 'strangely & abruptly' resigned! Are these Montgomery Village elections simply 'dry runs' as a learning curve for the Village serfs in 'How to Vote & How to Live Up to Civic Obligation' but subsequently to only result a week or two later into MVF's new slogan: "Let's take it from the top one more time"??!!!! Oh, I forgot! To fill that now (bizarre) vacant seat that was still cold, MVF 'appoints' replacement (as was done with Elena Peterson)! How convenient! It should be, according to ballot count, the next person with the highest amounts of votes. That 'would and should be' Dave Lechner now, shouldn't it (in all fairness)??!!!!
