The Results Are In

The Annual Member’s Meeting of the Twin Lakes Homeowner’s Association took place on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 7:00 PM. The quorum was met by 56 homeowners attending the meeting in-person, and 184 homeowners represented by absentee ballots. These 240 homeowners constitutes 17.6% representation. (At least 10% is required to achieve quorum) When the votes were tallied, the count was as follows:

  • Tim Walls 145 votes
  • Nancy Albasini 135 votes
  • Cally Huston 128 votes
  • Bob Butler 118 votes
  • Bonnie West-Armstrong 88 votes
  • Gerry Wieder 59 votes (Note: Gerry decided to withdraw his candidacy prior to the election)

The (3) candidates with the most votes were elected to serve as Trustees for a 3-year term: Tim Walls, Nancy Albasini and Cally Huston. They will join the other 6 trustees at the Board meeting to be held on Wednesday, September 19th. Officers for the 2018/2019 term will be selected at this meeting.

As always, all homeowners are invited to attend this Board of Trustee’s meeting, which will be held at the HOA office located at 3420 SW 320th St in Federal Way, WA.

Thank you to Board Members Bob Butler and Jerry Burbank for their service at the expiration of their terms.

Important Update for Annual Meeting / Election

Dear TLHOA Members,

The TLHOA Election Committee has been informed by Gerry Wieder that after careful consideration he has decided to withdraw his candidacy for the Twin Lakes HOA Board of Trustees. In the interest of transparency we feel it is best to inform as many voters as possible of this development as quickly as possible. Of course, all Members who appear at the Annual meeting will be notified as well.

The election is obviously too far underway to take an action such as sending out and receiving a new mailed ballots, however, there are two options for those who have already returned their ballot and wish to change their votes based on this development:

1) You are welcome to come to the HOA office and fill out a new ballot until 5:00 PM, Tuesday, September 11th. Your old ballot will be destroyed in your presence. The HOA office address is 3420 SW 320th St., Suite B-3.

2) You may revoke your absentee ballot by appearing at the Annual Meeting on September 12th, 7:00 PM and voting in person. Please arrive early for check-in.

Despite this unforeseen event we want to reassure you that we still have five excellent candidates to choose from and that this year’s election will continue to be executed as openly and as fairly as possible.

If you have any questions please contact Office Manager Steven Adams at 253-838-0464.

Sincerely, TLHOA Election Committee
