HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE -- Eight members have submitted applications to serve on the Property Owners' Association Board of Directors, according to a POA news release.
Five seats are up for election in 2021, replacing Director Peter Kirk Denger, interim Directors Pam Avila and JoAnne Corry, and filling the unexpired terms of Diana Podawiltz and Lloyd Sherman, who resigned in 2020, a news release said.
The following members have been certified for candidacy in the HSVPOA Board of Directors election: Linda Anderson, Pam Avila, Gary Belair, JoAnne Corry, Peter Kirk Denger, Chris Jones, Robert McLeod and Marcy G. Mermel.
Candidate photos and unedited resumes will be included in the spring edition of the HSVPOA Advocate.
The 2021 board of directors election, which will be conducted by a third-party election service, The Inspectors of Election, will provide members two options to cast their votes. "The first and preferred option uses an online voting system that offers a cost-effective, safe and easy way for members to vote. The second option is to vote with a paper ballot," the release said.
Election packets containing ballot, candidate resumes and voting instructions will be mailed to property owners in good standing on Feb. 26. Online votes or paper ballots must be completed/received, respectively, no later than 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 31.
