Timeline Reminders:

  • August 20, 2022 - Transition begins.

  • Disclaimers
  • The candidate bios have been cut and pasted as written. The Del Norte Place Neighborhood Association is not responsible for claims made by the candidates.
  • For full disclosure purposes, candidates Smith are married.
  • A word about Del Norte Place Neighborhood Association as a “volunteer” association:
  • A petition that was circulated in April and May (to select residents) requesting elections stated, "For the last four years, the association has continued as a volunteer-only effort," and "..it is time to reinstitute elections of officers."

    As such, the group that circulated the petition made it clear they no longer wanted a “volunteer” association.

    The current board called a special meeting that took place on May 26th and the majority attending voted to change the process of our association by voting in favor of elections.

    While board members are technically volunteering their time, we have refrained from using the term “volunteer association” regarding the future board so there would be less confusion, especially since any resident could have simply volunteered at any time for any position in the last several years.

    Candidate Withdrawal - Updated Ballot Procedure

    Cari Conden has withdrawn as one of the treasurer candidates for the Del Norte Place Neighborhood Association board elections. The position of treasurer will now be uncontested and will revert to the same instructions that were provided for the uncontested positions of Vice President and Secretary. This means that the treasurer position will also be required to receive 51% of “YES” votes in order for the candidate to win.

    Due to the cost and time required, we will not be providing different ballots. The new instructions for marking the treasurer position are as follows:

    Marking the box for Cari Conden will be a “NO” vote.

    Marking the box for Sharon Torre will be a “YES” vote.

    PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. DO NOT mark out Cari Conden's name, DO NOT write “YES” or “NO” on the ballot, NOR write any other additional marks.

    All other ballot instructions remain the same. (See below.)

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the board president, Destyn Moreno, at destynmoreno@gmail.com.

    Sincerely,

    The Del Norte Place Association Board
