SOA Board of Directors Election

If you have not already, you will soon receive your Ballot for the election of two Somersett Homeowners to the Somersett Owners Association (SOA) Board of Directors (BOD). To make sure your Ballot is properly counted, please follow the instructions contained in the Ballot mailing package. As previously discussed on this website, there are four candidates vying for the two open positions. Whereas the Ballot mailing package contains candidate statements for each, they are relatively brief and while they may provide some insight as to candidate qualifications, they should not provide the sole basis for deciding who to vote for. Therefore, talk to others in the community about their knowledge, experience and/or opinions on the declared candidates. Perhaps more importantly, plan to attend one or both of the “Meet the Candidate” nights, which are currently scheduled for Wednesday October 23rd from 6-8 PM at The Club at Town Center, and on Monday October 28th from 6-8 PM at the Aspen Lodge. These are moderated sessions wherein: 1) Candidates will be given the opportunity to address the audience with opening and closing statements, 2) Specific questions regarding qualifications and community issues will be asked of each candidate, and 3) Given time constraints, Somersett owners will be given the opportunity to ask questions directed to individual or all candidates.

Unfortunately, one of the candidates, Craig Hanson, will not be in attendance at either, this due to prior commitment dates, of which he advised the SOA prior to their setting of the October 23rd and 28th dates. However, Mr. Hanson has provided SU with an extended candidate statement, which was previously published on this website. One may view his statement via the following link:  Craig Hanson SOA BOD Candidate.

The preceeding Post on this website (Decision Time!) addressed the liability issue between the SOA and the Somersett Golf & Country Club (SGCC) over the Rockery Wall failure on SGCC leased land. A brief history of events was provided along with some identified options. This post resulted in several Homeowner comments including a lengthy one from Mr. Nelson (i.e., Craig Hanson on Decision Time!), who addressed many of the items covered in the Post. Since this issue is near and dear to many Somersett owners, you may wish to access his comment in the right hand column to determine what impact his stated positions may or may not have on your vote!

If any other Candidate whishes to post an extended qualification statement on this website, you may do so my emailing it to However, time is short.
