BINGO AND THOSE WHO HELD OFFICE
Who were they? Let’s start in June 2006 when Bingo became the responsibility of the HOA to the present:
If that doesn't get your attention, how about that many were also heavily involved in Bingo, either in its running or as volunteers, and their elections were backed by Bingo Funding. Consider the current ONLY four people running for the remaining 4 seats on the HOA BOD - ALL have been closely associated with Bingo and its misuse of funds.
For example, Frank Ota, LAVA Commander, PROMISED the Residents of Lake Ashton, that the veterans memorial would NOT cost the Residents of LA anything. Remember that pledge? However, not only did Frank Ota received funds from Bingo, he has never paid the CDD for its use of the LA electricity grid; it is the CDD who is responsible for paying all bills for our community, and Frank Ota never paid the CDD a single penny.
This wasn’t an accident. As you know many of us have been talking to the HOA BOD for several years now about this issue, and HOA BOD continue to profess they did nothing wrong AND that we simply didn’t know what we were talking about. The HOA BOD, as recently as 14 Nov 2010, stated as public policy that ‘they’ had investigated the Bingo issue and no wrong doing occurred. It’s hard to now say ‘opps’ made a mistake or ‘didn’t know’ once law enforcement got involved.
It takes a bit of due diligence, but I encourage all residents to read the HOA minutes from 2006 to present. They will see who held elected positions and knew how to run Bingo correctly yet they intentional turned a blind eye.
If anyone wants to review the records I have, please contact me to discern for yourself, and not what your neighbors, friends or what the HOA BOD told you. See for yourself, from public records alone, what the HOA BOD has known about Bingo since 2006. When you get done, I am sure you will see this entire situation differently.
