Sun City Anthem Board Looked the Other Way
Regarding "Enrichment" Definition
When it Came to "The Machine"
What's good for the goose, didn't seem to apply to the gander !
I guess it matters who you are when it comes to defining the word "enrichment" as it pertains to one's eligibility to serve on the Sun City Anthem Board.
Just why would I ask this question?
Well now, not long ago, we had an individual named Bella Meese who served as both President and Secretary of the Sun City Anthem Board; and if I recall, the subject of "enrichment" never seemed to be addressed during her reign as to her eligibility to be a member of the Sun City Anthem Board...
...despite the fact that two members of the Sun City Anthem Board, Rex Weddle & Thomas Nissen (both subject to the removal election), were a part of that same "regime".
While Nona Tobin may have been tossed from the Board for trying to "enrich" herself by keeping a home she was entitled to own as a trustee of the property, for some reason Mrs. Meese's actions never seemed to be of concern.
What were those actions?
Her husband, George Meese, is the publisher of a monthly magazine circulated to all homes in the Sun City Anthem community.
It includes various articles and...advertising, which provides income to him and is wife, that thereby "enriches" them, doesn't it?
Now I am the last person in the world to criticize the capitalistic system, but when that magazine was established, Mrs. Meese was a member of the Sun City Anthem Board, and my guess is that it not only brought revenue to Bella and George Meese, but also COST the association valued income by losing ads that, up to that time, had been placed in the association sponsored publication, "The Spirit".
At the same time, it was widely known that Mrs. Meese would greatly utilize The M Resort for a number of Association sponsored functions...
...functions believed to have earned her numerous amenities and points which seemed to have "enriched" her as well.
In spite these actions, no such charge of "enrichment" seemed to have been brought against her to make her ineligible to remain on the Sun City Anthem Board.
Hmmm...I wonder why that might be ????
Then again, she was an integral part of "the machine", wasn't she?
Obviously the moral of the story...
It's OK to enrich yourself if you're a member of a political machine, but damned if you wish to reform it !
How hypocritical !
How Sun City Anthem..ish !
How Sun City Anthem..ish !
Still looking for a reason to oppose the removal of those who look the other way...when it's convenient to do so?
Now it's your turn.
How about your opinion ?
