Board Candidate Comment

Submitted by Steve Guderian  –  SOA Board Candidate

Interesting to me that SU only found the two people directly associated with SOA to be the ones experienced enough to be commented upon. I guess the two people who only have association with Sierra Canyon are “inexperienced” with respect to being able to lead SOA. Nevada HOA 101, no one person can speak for the HOA board or make decisions for the HOA board. NRS 116 (the Nevada law governing HOA’s) requires that board elections be staggered. In the case of SOA 2 people voted onto the BOD on one year and 3 voted in the next. One has to believe that voting was set up like this in order to provide continuity and experience for a BOD so that the older people on the board can provide the necessary information to the new people. And, so that new views and direction can be elected onto a board without sacrificing overall experience. I completely agree with SU regarding Jason being good for the SOA board. However, by his own admission at the candidates night held at the Aspen Lodge in Sierra Canyon he is not very familiar NRS 116, which is the PRIMARY governing document for every HOA in Nevada. Jason’s BOD experience is based on developer appointments to board of directors in California, not NV. Two very different experiences. For the record, both Frank Leto & Steve Guderian are part of the SOA community, and by admission above Steve Guderian has direct experience with SOA HOA. I have to wonder why SU has only spoken about the two candidates that are directly associated with Somersett when there are three openings. I also find the coincidence of this SU posting being similar to one in Nextdoor Somersett as well as the Sierra Canyon discussion group.

SOA BOD Election Recommendation

Vote for Glenda Powell and Jason Roland

Ballots for the Somersett Owners Association (SOA) Board of Director (BOD) Elections have been mailed.  Three positions are open for two 2-year terms and one 1-year term.  The two candidates receiving the most votes will fill the 2-year terms with the third most vote getter serving the 1-year term. We now have the following four candidates, with Neil Holets having withdrawn his name from consideration.

  • Glenda Powell – Currently serving as the  SOA  BOD President
  • Jason Roland
  • Steve Guderian – Currently serving on the Sierra Canyon BOD
  • Frank Leto

Of the four candidates, given their experience and  background, it is evident that Glenda Powell and Jason Roland are best qualified to serve the Association at Large for the next two years and, therefore,  recommend that you cast your vote for them.

Be sure to vote and return your ballots on time, and whatever the outcome, all candidates should be complimented for their desire and willingness to serve our community.

Comments with respect to any of the candidates are welcome.
