For his comment, thanks to Mr. Retter for clearing up what the “Emergency” Executive meeting was all about. Perhaps if the BOD had addressed in general the purpose of the meeting at the time of the announcement, some of the negative speculations could have been avoided.
As for his determination that Mr. Bower has a “paranoid” attitude toward the SGCC, he like Mr. Bower is entitled to his opinion. However, it is evident that many Association member attitudes regarding the SGCC are based on past history, true that is now water under the bridge, but memories linger on. Hence some concern over the ongoing issues with the SGCC related to Rockery Wall Failure and Water Supply System liabilities.
In response to Mr. Retter’s closing comment: “And the fact that Somersett United propagates these statements of misinformation makes me wonder about their objectives as well”, SU would like to remind Mr. Retter that this is a “Blog” site wherein Association members posts and comments are welcome and unedited regardless if SU agrees with them or not.
