The GPICA board election process

Subject: Last meeting of the faux Greater Pine Island Civic Association

The last meeting of the faux Greater Pine Island Civic Association meeting was for the election of three board members instead of the 6 or more board seats that should have been up for election.

In front of the WGCU camera crews at the meeting and prodded on by a member of GPICA, the board refused to state how many board members had been appointed or when they were elected.

Instead of being up front and committed to being transparent to the members of GPICA, the board treated us to an explanation by Noel Andress about how the board has appointed members to serve past the election time.

State laws governing corporations in Florida are required by law to have an election for all board appointed directors at the next election of board members.

I guess this board wants to control who gets on the board that believes in the way that they want in order to make sure that their agenda isn't challenged. Breaking state laws along the way to maintain their aggressive push to get Matlacha and Pine Island incorporated is a goal that goes along with all the thousands of dollars they have spent to push this through.

These same folks want to be your representative in a new city government no doubt the faux Greater Pine Island Civic Association spins on laws will continue.
