MOST RECENT FIRST

2/28/17:

A group of us caravaned down to the House of Representatives to give testimony in opposition to SB1175, transfer fees.  Defendant RCSC made Senator Debbie Lesko sponsor a bill that would "clarify" the law so that they could alter the outcome of one of our causes of action about the $3,500-PIF in our pending class action lawsuit.  The bill is retroactive to 2010!  

SB1175 PASSED THE SENATE UNANIMOUSLY WITHOUT DEBATE BECAUSE WE DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT IT AND DIDN'T SHOW UP TO OPPOSE. 

2ARSatHouse.jpg

When we found out, we started emailing and calling both the Senate and the House to tell them about what was behind the bill.  And when it was assigned to the House Commerce Committee, we all drove down there to give testimony. We made some headway.  One "NO" vote from a representative who is an attorney who thought changing laws during a lawsuit was a problem, one "PRESENT" who might vote "NO" on the floor. Others voted "DO PASS", though they said they might vote "NO" on the floor.  So, SB1175 is being sent to the RULES committee.  We must write the RULES committee and OPPOSE SB1175.  Our emailing list will get the info.

For those who want to watch the fireworks, click on the following link: "HOUSE COMMERCE COMMITTEE VIDEO 2/28/17 2PM" 

Keep calling the House of Representatives, especially the Rules committee.  We will object to this bill all the way to the Governor. You eat an elephant one bite at a time.

"As a matter of law, PORA does not have the power to enforce fines against homeowners for violating the CC&R's." Holmes v. PORA Sup Ct Findings Conclusions SJ (CV 2012-018098) (8/29/13)

Anne Report: If PORA does not have the power, then SCHOA most likely does not either.  If you are a victim of illegal fine enforcement by SCHOA, contact Plaintiff Holmes's attorney to ask him what you should do about it.

1/26/13:

The RCSC failed to answer our attorney Nancy Mangone's August 22, 2012, letter!  LAWSUIT IS NOW REQUIRED!

Attorney Mangone sent a follow-up letter on January 24, 2013, which confirms that RCSC's continuing non-compliance with Arizona revised statutes and its own community documents in intolerable and must be brought before a court.  Fundraising is now underway.  Please donate. (donations are not tax deductible).  WE NEED FUNDING TO PROCEED. 

Hard copies of letters and flyers are available at The Send Me Store, Talisman and Del Webb.  Please use them to spread the word.  Or, print it out here:

1/10/13:

On January 10, 2013, Anne Randall Stewart received a letter from the new RCSC President James Brasher threatening and intimidating her.  (And the beat goes on...)

We suspect this to be another frame-up job.  They framed her twice before with false charges and said if there was a third time it would mean permanent expulsion.  

Anne Randall Stewart has obeyed every rule the board has thrown at the members even if they are illegal rules.  Permanent expulsion might mean she could not bring a lawsuit against the RCSC because she is not a member in good standing.  It would not behoove her to disobey the rules and forfeit her "member in good standing" status.

The letter accused her of circulating flyers on car windshields at the RCSC parking lots.  Friends of the Registry have been instructed to obey the rules (BP #11 and #14).  The Registry members circulate person-to-person, friend-to-friend.  Even though we believe BP #11 AND #14 go against the articles of incorporation because they thwart "the action of the Members", until we go to court to challenge them, we must abide by the rules.

The person(s) guilty of this "crime" is either ignorant of the rules or is trying to get Anne Randall Stewart into "trouble".   By the way, there was no flyer enclosed with the RCSC letter even though the body of letter said there was.

12/18/12:

The RCSC is sneaking a $6-million project through without a membership vote.  There wasn't 10 days notice.  Article X of the Articles of Incorporation mandates a membership vote for any "indebtedness or liability, direct or contingent, over $750,000".  It's a North Golf Course reconstruction project with  $2 million just for the irrigation system alone.  $6 million for a golf operation that has drainage ditches instead of golf course water features of Del Webb quality.  Remember the silk purse and sow's ear saying?

Read The Daily News-Sun account from yesterday: http://www.yourwestvalley.com/suncity/article_42251cb2-4866-11e2-b713-001a4bcf887a.html 

Here are all the motions for Thursday's board meeting including the $6 million golf course project and BP17 that kills the orchestra, bands and dance clubs: http://sunaz.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Regular-Board-Meeting-Agenda-with-7-motions-12-20-12.pdf 

Attend and Protest:

RCSC Board meeting
Sundial Auditorium
Thursday, December 20, 2012
9 a.m.
 

12/17/12:
 
Protest the demise of the Sun City Orchestra and other bands as well as the dance clubs.  Attend the RCSC Board Meeting at Sundial Auditorium, Thursday, December 20, 9 a.m.  One opinion expressed recently claimed the musicians would pay the RCSC to perform because of their huge "egos".  This kind of thinking should not be the norm.  It will ruin our sense of community.

12/12/12:

The members showed up to protest the demise of the bands and dance clubs but the board wouldn't listen.  We can hold another protest on Dec. 20, 9 a.m., Sundial Auditorium.

The crux of the problem: "Guest must pay to use the facilities."  That principle is ruining Sun City.  That principle eliminates the participation of the members with not enough money to pay extra to enjoy the facilities with their family and friends in order to show them around to entice them to move here.  There is no need to charge members more.  The facilities are already paid for a year in advance by the annual assessments.  Charging fees only allows the elites to use the facilities while they gouge the poor to foot the bill for them.

The facilities are for the enjoyment of all.  They create a sense of community and were originally established as a marketing tool.  The solution to the problem is to eliminate all guest fees.  Try it and see how enjoyment will flourish and the members will be happier.

10/3/12:

On September 27, 2012, Noel Kasper delivered a letter to the RCSC at a board meeting requesting a petition to bring to a membership ballot vote the issue of saving the Quarterly Membership meetings and the bi-monthly Director/Member Exchange meetings.  Here is the RCSC response by President Vance Coleman.  In his letter dated Oct. 1, 2012, Coleman admits that the board voted for "Motion #1" at the last board meeting despite our petition request.  ("Motion #1" removed one of two bi-monthly Director/Member Exchange meetings.)  With our membership action to bring the issue to a membership vote, the board did not act in the membership interest when it refused to table the motion until the outcome of the petition drive.

Stay tuned...

The RCSC ignored our attorney letter.  We must get financing to bring our case to court.

You can help by circulating flyers and copies of attorney Nancy Mangone's letter to the RCSC's statutory agent, James Hienton, Esq., regarding RCSC's non-compliance with Arizona revised statutes and its own community documents.

In response to our criticism that the RCSC has not convened the Legal Committee and, in closed session, created bylaws and board policies that negatively impact the members, i.e., 100% assessment increases, membership meeting quorum increases to 1250, etc., THEY HAVE OFFICIALLY CLOSED THE LEGAL COMMITTEE!!!

Instead, they are establishing the new GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS COMMITTEE!

They are going to monitor the bills down at the Arizona legislature so that they can continue to NOT OBEY THE PLANNED COMMUNITIES ACT REGULATIONS while they get the "common area" property tax breaks that are given to planned communities.

THEY WANT IT BOTH WAYS! 

They don't want open meetings, open records, and a recall with a thousands signatures, etc.

Contact the board and tell them you are against this change. "KEEP THE LEGAL COMMITTEE!" "Start discussing changes to the bylaws and board policies in open meetings!"

The RCSC Board of directors are strangling the members'. They are totally emasculating the members. They now have given themselves the ability to charge the members whatever they want WITHOUT LIMIT and the MEMBERS CANNOT STOP THEM.

The board is voting to accomplish these bylaws changes at the next board meeting.

RCSC BOARD MEETING
Sundial Auditorium
Thursday, March 31, 2011
9 a.m.

The RCSC is NOT YOUR FRIEND. They are after your money for the corporation and outrageous spending without approval of the members. WAKE UP!!!

The Sun City Formula Registry --- We let you know when the board does something that is detrimental to your interests, but it's up to you to do something about it: "The Action of the Members shall prevail."

HEADS UP! SAVE THE REC CENTERS!Oakmont.jpg

At the RCSC Long Range Planning meeting, to obfuscate the facts and to "calm down the members," it was decided not to target Oakmont by "name," but to open up the discussion to INCLUDE ALL OF THE REC CENTERS for the "chopping block" discussion.  March 25, 9 a.m., all day, the managers will be guiding the committee through ALL of the centers to determine "usage" for possible closure.  BUT THERE'S WAY MORE TO THE STORY!  Read The Anne Report below!  It's too much information to include in the newspapers' "Letters" page.
 
SCFR WANTS OUTLAWED FROM "DISCUSSION" THE REMOVAL OF REC CENTERS AND MONUMENTS!  FOREVER!

HEADS UP! SAVE OAKMONT!Oakmont.jpg
Next Long Range Planning meeting:

TOMORROW!

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Lakeview Board Room
Lakeview Rec Center SECOND FLOOR
Del Webb & Thunderbird
9 a.m.

Good time to talk to the committee members to tell them why you want the Oakmont Rec Center to remain.

Del Webb erected rec centers and golf courses first and then built the surrounding homes. The rec centers and golf courses enhance the property values of the surrounding homes.

You don't want to lose the rec center or the golf course near yours. But, you have to speak up or someone will close it down to "save money".

If you can't attend, communicate with your RCSC board members. Get contact info at :
