This forum is an introduction to the seven candidates who are running for three 3-year terms on the Pine Mountain Club Property Owners Association’s nine-member board of directors. Ballots will be sent out next week.

Voters can cast votes for three candidates. To be sure your secret vote counts, carefully follow these instructions:

• The “secret ballot” double envelope system requires voters 1) to place their ballot inside an anonymous inner envelope, then 2) to place the ballot envelope within an outer mailing envelope. Be sure to sign the outer envelope which also has your lot number. Ballots that arrive in unsigned envelopes are disqualified. Sign the outer envelope so your vote will be counted.

By mail, your ballot should be sent by June 7 to arrive by June 14. You can also submit your ballot 12:45 to 1 p.m. on June 17 at the PMCPOA Members’ Annual Meeting in the Condor Room. Results will be tallied and announced there.

The sequence in which candidates appear here is based on the order in which they replied to our questions.

A word budget is given for each question, so all have equal space in which to reply. We do not edit the candidates’ answers. If they overshoot their word budget, the answer is cut off at the count, and marked with **. Their spelling, grammar and expression are the candidates’ own, unedited.
