"No indebtedness, no miracle" by Anne Randall Stewart, Spokesperson for The Sun City Formula Registry and Publisher of annereport.com

Subject: Rebuts RCSC James Brasher's April 24 Daily News-Sun guest commentary entitled, "Miracles without debt," which is no miracle since RCSC just takes the money it needs (and more) directly from the homeowners, buyers, and beneficiaries, at $3,000 a pop.  RCSC has increased assessments and is proceeding with more multi-million-dollar projects without a membership vote. We need a judge to stop them.  Fundraising for the "Anne Stewart Legal Fund" is ongoing.   Donate to "Anne Stewart", 10526 W Tropicana Cir, Sun City, AZ 85351, with "Legal Fund" notation.  Donations are not tax deductible.

"Proposed fee conflicts with articles of incorporation" by Anne Randall Stewart, Spokesperson for The Sun City Formula Registry

The assessments are not usage fees.  The board is not empowered to write rules that conflict with the articles.  MUST READ!

Subject: The RCSC used their corporate newspaper, website, email, and bulletin boards in an atempt to discredit and humiliate Anne Randall Stewart by name.  She stands by her reports and will carry on.  She calls on members to attend meetings so they can tell who to believe.  At the meeting on May 26, the board will unanimously approve abolishing the "Morning After" notes to keep the members in the dark until the following month when the board votes to approve the minutes.  Annereport.com will publish their version instead.  Without board approval.   Attend Membership/Board meeting May 26 9 a.m. at Sundial Auditorium.  Be a witness to the further erosion of membership power.

"'Saving Sundial Monument' in Limbo"  by Anne Randall Stewart, Spokesperson for The Sun City Formula Registry

"Save the Sundial Monument" Speech

"Sundial Monument rust a ruse" by Anne Randall Stewart, Spokesperson for The Sun City Formula Registry

Subject: Without discussion in an open meeting, the RCSC board had a press release that because of rust on the Sundial Monument it will be removed, citing an engineering report that it is "unsafe".  We found that to not be the case; the steel frame is not any rustier than the new steel found at a construction site.  The steel is still good.  The Sundial Monument is a historic landmark and namesake for the Sundial Rec Center.  It is an icon and necessary for the branding of Sun City.  The Del Webb history is important to perpetuate "Our Retirement Dream Come True".  After this letter was circulated, and others generated from member outrage, the board released a second notice that backed off saying they don't have enough information to tear it down and is requesting "input".  We don't trust them.  Leave the Sundial Monument where it is and take care of it.  And start having open meetings so we don't upset the membership.

However, AFTER THE ELECTION OUTCOME, Director Phil Cook resigned so that the board can appoint someone to take his place.  Is he being a "team player" by resigning?  Will the board have the "gall to install" Craig Brown thereby OVERRIDING the will of the people?

UPDATE 1/26/11: SUN CITY LOSES!!!  BROWN WINS!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

The appointment was Carey Shore, same as Brown.  Both voted to increase the PIF to $3,000 after membership quorums showed up to protest.  Both voted to increase the quorum for membership meetings against state statute so that the members can't ever have a quorum again!  Shore equals Brown, so, Brown wins and Sun City loses!

"Creek project too costly" by Anne Randall Stewart, Spokesperson for The Sun City Formula Registry
THE SUN CITIES INDEPENDENT, Letters, Page 4A, April 8, 2009
Subject: RCSC board wants gutters on Willowcreek costing $435,000.  Stewart wants Pacific Aquascape to be able to bid on the project to keep Willowcreek Del Webb quality.  She fears they will be shut out by specs calling for a gutter which they don't do.  If they are, Stewart calls for recall of board members and dismissal of employees in support of it.
UPDATE: Pacific Aquascape was shut out of bidding.  On Monday, at the 4/6/09 board meeting, Tom Beckwith delivered a PA bid for $203,000 or $308,000 depending on the length, which was immediately rejected.
So, Willowcreek will get a gutter instead of a water feature and it will be done by Alliance, a first-time contractor, with no identifiers on their trucks at the construction site.
