Crime spree concerns at Century Village in West Palm Beach
Story by Al Pefley / CBS 12 News
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Frightened by a rash of home break-ins, some people who live at Century Village in suburban West Palm Beach are putting their heads together, looking for a solution.
About 60 residents of this retirement community near Okeechobee Blvd and the Turnpike met at the pool Tuesday night for a community meeting.
In 2009, UCO’S insurance was
renewed. The insurance Company UCO used during that time was sold to another
Company. When the policy was renewed, the new company made the mistake of
writing one policy with a $50,000 limit for mold damage.The original policy called for EACH
association to have a $50,000 limit for mold damage. This error meant, in the
event of a hurricane the village would only be covered for a grand total of $50,000
The policy was effective in January and Dan Gladstone, insurance chair at the time,
did not receive the policies until March of that year. As a result, when he received them anddiscovered the mistake, he immediately
notified the insurance Company of their error. The insurance company agreed to
issue an endorsement to the policy to correct the mistake. Meanwhile, the
hurricane destroyed many units, and because of the error,
contractors refused to repair any damage, unless they were guaranteed payment in
While the Insurance Company
was putting together the endorsement, Jerry Karpf had his monthly umbrella club
meeting and invited a representative of 1st priority as a
guest.This was the first meeting
between Dan Gladstone and 1st Priority. At that meeting, Dan saw an
opportunity to speak to 1st priority about our problem.1st priority agreed to do the
work without receiving money up front. They understood the problem and said
they would wait for the insurance Company to issue the endorsement to allow
each Association to have a total of $50,000 in mold damage.Dan said OK but insisted all work must have
permits. At that time, none of the unit owners had permits for the work needed
to repair their units.(Thirty eight
inspections previously failed due to violations.)1st priority was told by the
inspectors, they were not allowed to begin work until all violations were
removed. After the violations were removed the inspectors would issue permits
to begin work.The inspectors gave the
responsibility of removing the violations to the unit owners and the
Associations. This created a long waiting period in which repair work was held
up due to the existing violations. Many unit owners were unaware of the cause
of the delay; they became frustrated and blamed Dan. Dan Gladstone went before
the Insurance commission to complain about the inspectors not giving permits to
the contractors to allow them to begin work. He was told by the commission,
“What do you want us to do? Have those contractors to do the work without
permits? They have to wait.”Eventually,
the violations were removed, and 1st priority completed all the
work.The delays caused the unit owners
to become frustrated, and they put all the blame on Dan.David Israel saw the perfect opportunity to
capitalize on the owner’s anger and frustrations by using Dan Gladstone as a
whipping boy.The owners quickly forgot
about all the work and effort Dan Gladstone put into serving the village for
the past ten years. The result was David Israel won that election by only TWO
Authors note:1st priority had previously worked
in Palm Beach County and had never encountered any problems.
Their reputation was sullied by David Israel and his henchmen that wanted David
It was because of a threatened lawsuit by 1st
priority that David Israel knew he could not defend that he was forced to write
this letter of retraction. Please refer back to this letter.
This is only a vignette of the real character
of David Israel.
Mr. Rivera has chosen to single out Dorothy Tetro, UCO's Treasurer by making certain
claims as to her residency. At a meeting he came right out and said
so. He makes the statement that it is not personal, but rather for the
good of all CV residents to abide by the rules and by HIS interpretation of
residency. If you believe that garbage, he'll tell you another one.
He talks often about how everyone should live by the established
By-Laws; he's adamant about that, - "FOR THE GOOD OF ALL." he
says. The Camden "B" Condominium Association documents, where
Mr. Rivera resides, state in part: "TO SHOW NO SIGNS, ADVERTISEMENTS
OR NOTICES OF ANY TYPE ON THE COMMON ELEMENTS OR HIS (sic) UNIT ....."
In the rear of Mr. Rivera's unit, on his porch, facing the
roadway, he has erected an illuminated moving message sign similar to what you
might see on a building at One Time Square, New York. His moving message
sign has red letters, with other colors added for emphasis - some words are
even blinking. The letters are 3" to 4" high and the sign is 2 to 3 feet long. The
moving sign reads in two word segments the following: "DON'T BE
FOOLED BY THE SCARE TACTICS OF THE ANTI-DAVE PEOPLE. THEY SAY THINGS
WITHOUT PROOF. NEWS FLASH. IF AN OFFICER OF UCO DOES NOT RESIDE IN CENTURY VILLAGE THEN
ACCORDING TO THE BY-LAWS THEY MUST RESIGN. SIGN THE PETITION REQUIRING
PROOF OF RESIDENCY FOR ALL OFFICERS IN DOUBT OF THEIR RESIDENCY. THANK
Now, about the By-Laws, Mr. Rivera, - do you practice what you
preach, or is it that you
couldn't care less about what anyone says? If anyone demands that you
take the moving message sign down because you are violating your own By-Laws,
what are you going to do, - BANG, BANG - SHOOT HIM with the gun you admit
Century Village has numerous problems, no doubt, but you are its'
biggest. Tell everyone who pushed your buttons - was it Mr. Israel or Mr.
Black, - or both?
Mr. Rivera, a
number of things have been said of you and about you in great detail on this
Blog, including quotes from you, and you haven't responded to a single
posting. The unwritten law of mutual understanding and recognition in the
civilized world dictates that if you don't respond to the matters put before
you that are duly recorded, - it is normally deemed that all that is said of
you and about you is authentic.
And, since you haven't responded to all
that is now on record, then you are hereafter known to be a CERTIFIED
FAKE. The sad part about this is that you know it.
that you have admitted that you own a gun, - are you a FAKE or a FLAKE?
Because if you are on medication that may indicate that you are a FLAKE, owning
a gun may be something people have to worry about.
LOOSE LIPS DAVID ISRAEL WAS FORCED TO EAT HIS WORDS WHEN HE DEFAMED 1ST PRIORITY SERVICES, INC, David began his history of lies and deceptions while running for president of UCO. His strong need for power promulgated the treacherous actions which led to the defeat of his opponent Dan Gladstone. Without receiving payment in advance, Ist Priority was the only Company willing to enter Century Village to begin cleanup operations after the hurricane. At that time, no other Company was willing to begin restoration of water damage without first being paid by the insurance company. Hence, Dan Gladstone's only choice was to allow Ist Priority into the village to begin cleanup. One problem resulted with Ist priority out of many and was blown up out of proportion by David Israel and his gang of supporters in order to defame Ist Priority and his opponent Dan Gladstone.
In reading the letter below you will discover that David was forced under threat of serious legal action to retract his infamous deception.

**LETTER OF RETRACTION**
Defamation of 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc.
1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. Attn: Yitshak Levy, President
3389 Sherin Street Suite 127
Hollywood, Florida 33021
Dear Mr. Levy:
On , 2009 during a United Civic Organization (" UCO" ) Insurance meeting, I took it upon myself to publish to its President, George Loewenstein and other committee members, then in attendance, a purported memorandum regarding the validity and experience of Ist Priority Restoration Services, Inc.
My memorandum commenced with five(5)" key" questions, to wit:
How and why is UCO First Named Insured?
Why is UCO interfering in Association Insurance Affairs?
Why are so many claims involving potentially unnecessary repairs being filed? What is our risk of being unable to acquire insurance as a result of our escalating claims~ volume?
Why did we select a 5 year old inexperienced firm for such a major project?
My memorandum first states that " 1st Priority Restoration" does not appear to be licensed in Florida. I then go on to state that " 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. " appears to be the true name
of the firm. I hereby acknowledge that at all times relevant herein, 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc., was a duly incorporated Florida corporation and I apologize for inferring that the company was not licensed in Florida for not having filed their articles of incorporation with the Florida Secretary of State, Division of Corporations.
My memorandum then states that 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc.'s web site refers to MC Enterprises of South Florida, Inc. (" MC" ) which is " reminiscent of those who do handyman jobs in CV and advertise in the Reporter under other people's name and license." I further stated that MC is licensed but made no mention of First Priority. What I should have stated is that the corporate address, the President and Vice President of both corporations are identical. Thus, this is NOT reminiscent of persons who perform other " handyman jobs" . I hereby apologize for defaming the activities of 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc.
Letter of Retraction to Ist Priority Restoration Services, Inc January 8, 2010
Page 2 or 2
My memorandum further states that " I would suspect the Legal ability of either firm to carry out Mold mitigation." I acknowledge that I have no competent substantial evidence of the truthfulness of this statement and apologize for defaming the services rendered by 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. mld/or MC Enterprises of South Florida, Inc.
My memorandum further states that " The Corporation filing clearly indicates that 1st. Priority Restoration Services, Inc., was created on September 9. 2004 (within a week after Hurricane Frances had devastated Florida ) specifically, I suspect, to rape Florida Citizens of all those juicy Insurance dollars and Deductible payments." I acknowledge that I have no competent substantial evidence of the truthfulness' of this statement and apologize for defaming the good name of 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc.
In addition, I acknowledge orally stating at a recent UCO meeting that 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. operated under the following entities: (a) First Priority DKI; and (b) First Priority Restoration, Inc. 1 acknowledge that at no time did 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. ever operate under the foregoing names and that I have no competent substantial evidence of the truthfulness of my statement. I hereby apologize for defaming the good name of 1st Priority Restoration Services, Inc. and misleading the public as to its work and reputation.
It appears that my memorandum, while only distributed at the UCO meeting, was in fact disseminated to other members within Century Village, Boca Raton. Accordingly, 1 hereby request that those who made copies of my previous Memorandum to make equal or greater numbers of copies of this retraction letter and that they distribute it as they did my Memorandum.
Finally, please consider this correspondence as my formal retraction of all defamatory references to IST Priority Restoration Services, Inc I realize that I was remiss in not checking more carefully to ensure the accuracy of my information, for which I sincerely apologize. I hereby formally state that I have no reservations whatsoever of UCO or any other entity within Century Village or elsewhere from soliciting and utilizing the services of IST Priority Restoration Services, Inc
First of all, let me
make it clear, I do not want to see housing on the golf course; I would far
prefer to have it returned to being a golf course, "in perpetuity".
However, there has to be
some limit to the rapacity of the Non-UCO ProActive
Committee's unbridled greed for our money!
At Mondays meeting of
the Executive Board, a member of the ProActive Committee, which I hasten to
point out, is not a UCO committee, by their own choice, made known plans
to make a motion at the upcoming meeting of the Delegate Assembly to place in
the UCO budget for 2013 a line item of 98 cents per month per unit to continue
paying an attorney to fight the developers plan to convert the golf course to
residential housing. I hasten to note that this sort of
motion was defeated at last months Delegate Assembly meeting!!
Having already burned
through $25,000.00 of unit owner money and an undisclosed sum of donations, the
ProActive committee now wants another $92,363.04 in 2013 from our unit owners!!
The developer has
millions, we do not!! This hemorrhagic rapacity must stop. Is this to
become a Common expense in perpetuity?
If the Proactive
Committee wants money, let them canvass for donations from the "true
believers" in the miasmic not to be golf course in the sky, and stop
trying to make their vendetta a Common expense which we can ill afford. - Delegates, please ask your Unit Owners what they
think, before you vote!
He resigns from UCO, which included all committees, the Executive Board, the UCO Reporter, making the coffee, etc.- RESIGNING!
No, he's not going to resign because somebody looked at him cross-eyed and he's really pissed - NOT RESIGNING!
Oh yeah, he resigns because his health is more important than working with uncontrollable UCO people - RESIGNING!
He decides that he can take anything from anybody, so he's not going to resign - NOT RESIGNING!
Absolutely resigning because he's alienated and did dirt upon too many people and he can't face them - RESIGNING!
Absolutely not resigning because the people elected him, but fails to say which, people elected him to committees, the UCO Reporter and making the coffee - NOT RESIGNING!
Resigning, - he needs to see his doctors at the VA Medical Center and doesn't have time for the people who don't particularly like him - RESIGNED!
He can't resign now because he may be considered a dope and he considers himself a brilliant person and besides he still want to get Dorothy Tetro out of office for very personal reasons - NOT RESIGNING!
He's got to resign because everybody is laughing at the goofy statements he's made on Israel's private blog and Israel won't let him use four-letter words - RESIGNING!
Resigning, hell no! - why would anyone ever think that? He needs to be among all of his pals who hate his guts, but love his doggie - NOT RESIGNING!
Hey Bobby-boy, I know that you think CV residents are really dumb, like bloody stupid, - you made a statement to that effect, indicating that they need to stick theirs heads up their rear ends. But, face up Bobby-boy, - before you make another statement about RESIGNING or NOT RESIGNING, you really need to get your head examined by at least three professionals. I would think it sensible for the people presently in power to duct tape you to your motorcycle and stick a banana in your mouth. Everyone would then go on their pleasant way and continue to enjoy Paradise. The PRIVATE blog and the PUBLIC blog would join hands and then be talking about rosy-posy stories. Everyone would be so happy. Gee-whiz, I can't wait ... Where's my hanky? Will someone get my hanky!
P.S. Mr. Israel, sir, - if you're reading this posting on this PUBLIC blog, - please know that Mr. Rivera is shaming and embarrassing UCO, their officers and you in particular, in that you are the President, and thus you would be most astute in using your powers to shut him down. Since he is so far out of control, you would be applauded by many, I'm sure. And, because he is a loose cannon, I do hope that he doesn't own a gun. I don't have to tell you sir.
David Israel stated on his personal blog that he rarely
takes a posting off of his blog, - but he did so because of wicked,
mind-blowing statements made by Mr. Rivera, his runner.Mr. Rivera is a loose cannon and I should
think that the President would put a harness on him.
Interestingly enough, in that very same posting, Mr. Israel
stated: “Most of us live our live plus or minus 2 Standard Deviations on the
bell curve; that channel is 20 sigmas out of the asymptote, please don’t be
dragged into it.”Now, I have a number
of years of advanced learning, but I can’t fathom what the hell he’s talking
about.Do any of the “afraid to speak”
people out there know?Wait! … I think
I know, - maybe he’s sending a coded secret message to his coolie Rivera, giving
him a gag order.
Boy, oh Boy, - such sophisticated language in Paradise has
The statement made by Mr. Rivera is dripping with arrogance and sarcasm alike. He talks like he's the Captain of a battleship resigning after 30 years of service. Holy mackerel! ... UCO is going to come to a complete crash and stop without him! I can see clearly why he is prohibited from making any more postings on the OTHER blog (that is what is on the street). And, how he wants to come back to this blog again even though he said good-riddance with a posting a short while ago.
Mr. Rivera stated: "I hereby offer my resignation from UCO, and all committees effective 30 days from now, the UCO Reporter effective today." Everyone is supposed to shiver and reach for a hanky. Does he lie, or what? It has been reported that he was seen at the Reporter office on Friday, July 19th and was supposedly working. HUH? One can reasonably assume that resigning from UCO included everything to do with UCO, - it's like spitting after you say "UCO". He means, of course, the Executive Board as well, unless that becomes another falsehood. By the way, he "offers" his resignation from UCO like they're supposed to refuse to accept it.
Mr. Rivera very lovingly states that "...people are so closed minded with their heads so far up their own rear ends that they could not see light if it was an inch in front of their noses." We finally hear it from him - what he thinks of YOU.
Mr. Rivera also says, -- "Too much dissension within UCO, volunteers, friends, former friends." Nice touch ... Mr. Rivera is so egotistical that he'll never understand that he is the dissension among his peers.
Mr. Rivera goes on to suggest that the good people of CV "...dis-respect the servicemen of this once great country..." This guy is really off the wall. He's like a run-away train. Or, simply put, a real dope.
Mr. Rivera .... bye-bye .... and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.
I have never kicked the enemy when he was on the ground, and I will not do
Mr. Rivera has chosen to
relieve himself of his duties at UCO and as a staff member of the UCO Reporter.
I shall let that decision rest in peace and not gloat over it as he suggested I
would do. I will respect his decision without the consequence of facing any reaction
He did admit that although he
was resigning from these positions, he would continue his campaign to disparage
and malign me; that is his choice but I will no longer participate in his
negativity against me by answering him. I have decided to leave him alone and
let the readers of this blog deal with his actions.
I will add that in the event,
Mr. Rivera chooses to renege on his decision to relieve himself of his duties;
I will also renege on my decision not to participate in any response to his
Bob Rivera has made a serious accusation against me on David Israel’s blog.
And since I am forbidden to respond there, I will respond here.
The accusation is this: “I am sure she’ll take the opportunity to spit
on my grave as she probably did to returning Viet Nam vets during her so-called
I was married to a man for 35
years, the father of my two children, who fought in World War 2.He was in the Navy on an LCT in Normandy
France that delivered equipment to the beaches. He enlisted at the young age of
seventeen because he felt that war was necessary.He returned home, as many soldiers did;
horrified by their experience, not by the justification of war but by the
horror of it. This was one of the reasons why he felt the Viet Nam's war was a
mistake. There was no justification for it. I and many of our friends felt the
same way.Therefore, we chose to protest
it. We felt we were protecting young innocents from being brutally tortured and
sent to death while the very politicians who were perpetrating the war kept
their own children safe by sending them to College.
The accusation made by Bob
Rivera, is a falsehood and is detrimental to my character.It is suggested he retract this lie on
David’s blog.When he does, the matter
will end.Should he decide otherwise it
will be a blain on him?
It is unfortunate that Mr.
Rivera felt the need to stoop so low in his attempt to discredit me, and the
fact that David Israel had to give him the vehicle to do it is commentary on
their heart of darkness.
*A further note to this
article is a reminder that Robert McNamara Secretary of Defense in the Kennedy
administration who was a consummate hawk and helped to escalate the Viet Nam's
war had pangs of guilt, and before he died, he openly admitted tothe world that the Viet Nam's war was a huge
(Vladimir Putin and Barak
Obama speaking on the telephone)
PUTIN: Barak, Ve gotta a problem, this Snowman boy of
your Vants Russia to give em temporary asylum. Vat do you vant us to do?
BARAK: Give him asylum for a year.
It will give us time to decide what to do with him. You see we have a problem
too. He’s a spy. He gave away our
darkest Secrets. But, under our constitution,
he could be considered a whistleblower not a spy. If we take him back,
prosecute him and fail we will look like fools.
Putin:Ok Barack, if ve do this for you, what are you going to do for us?
BARAK: Tell you what Vlad. How About a nice vacation in sunny Florida? We have a great senior community for your
comrades called Century Village WPB. I
spent some time there when I was running for president. They will love it. Plus,
well throw in some kegs of vodka. They have a terrific political fight going on now. Your comrades could join
in; they will love it. What do you say
PUTIN: I tink about it and
let you know at the G-20.
Mr. Rivera: - It would
appear that the Israel Blog comments by Mr. black is tippy-toeing and gently neutralizing you. I
think that he, Mr. Black, has realized that you've gone too far and what you
have to say isn't the way to go. In fact, Mr. Black, from the looks of things, is distancing himself from you. And, this
was very likely to happen because what you're trying
to do can be very hurtful to lots of CV residents. Mr. Black has used
you, like others, but it's clear that you're way out of control, and Mr. Black
does things in a
more subtle, back-room style. So, what are you going to try now to get
rid of Dorothy Tetro as UCO's
The man who hides behind a thousand faces attended the last
advisory committee where Mr. Bob Rivera presented a petition for a bylaw change.
The change presented, was made to force any UCO officer on demand to prove
their (9) month residency.Fortunately,
the motion did not pass and was thrown on the garbage heap. The man also wrote
a lengthy article on David Israel’s blog expounding the virtues of passing such
a bylaw, yet he never raised his hand in the advisory committee to second the
motion in order for it to go forward. If
he felt so passionately about the motion, why did he not second it at the meeting?
Was it because he did not have the courage to speak up or was it because he is
not sure about himself what he believes in?
In any event the man with a thousand faces is none other
than ED BLACK.
You continue to malign the people on this blog who tell the truth about what's been happening behind closed doors in Century Village. You Praise David Israel as if he was master of the Universe. Now I am going to put you through the test. I am going to ask you the following question, and I dare you to answer it on this blog:
BESIDES HIS BLOG, WHAT HAS DAVID ISRAEL DONE FOR CENTURY VILLAGE?
You know, Mr. Rivera, you've got
an awful lot to say. It just seems to spill out of your mouth like you
ate a lot of excreta. You're so egotistical that you don't even care
whether you're morally right or wrong. The fact is, you make no sense at
all. What reasonably acting person, with some degree of intelligence,
would do what you are doing? You tried to tell everyone, in a
round-a-bout way, that it was all about making CV honest and a better place to
live, with everyone following stringent rules. You are the savior, -
you're going to straighten out everything that is faulty in CV. But, you
are a prevaricator, not a savior. Do you really expect people to believe
you after your buffoonish antics?
The biggest question that numerous people have is WHY?
You're so dense that you don't understand that your actions are going to affect
not just the one person you expect to hurt, but literally thousands of others
in one way or another. You fumbled, and let loose the other day, nearly
losing your composure in front of several people, admitting that all of what
you are doing is directed solely to UCO's Treasurer, Dorothy Tetro. You
want her out of office, - nobody else, just her. Now, you deny that over
and over, again and again. And, your justification is that your actions
are all for CV, right? Everybody is stupid in CV, but you're ever so
smart, right? You're going to save CV from pigs running loose, vans all
over the place, etc., - but what about motorcycles Mr. Hypocrite? They
were never allowed overnight.
I believe that you're the sacrifice front man. I firmly
believe that you and Mr. Black, who, it would appear, pushes all of your
buttons, expect Dorothy Tetro to resign under all of this pressure from you, so
that he, Black, can once again become UCO's Treasurer. Well, I don't
think that that scenario is likely to happen. When he held the
Treasurer's job, Mr. Black, kept the UCO files top secret, and it was toward
this end that we teetered near bankruptcy. So many files were
conveniently, "LOST" or misplaced. Mr. Black, in my considered
opinion, wants that job back so bad that he will go to any lengths to try and
make that happen. So, Mr. Black conjured up this intricate scheme to use
a loud-mouth lackey to do his underhanded back-room shady work. Mr. Black
never puts his name to anything, and he uses other people for his own personal
gain. You don't get what I'm saying and I don't believe that you ever
will. Mr. Black expects to get the Treasurer's job just like he did last
time, i.e., with no effort because nobody challenged him at a Delegate's
You seem to believe, in your narrow, crass way of thinking, that
all of Century's inhabitants are mindless dummies and that they can't see
through what you're doing. When all the facts are brought forth, people,
- especially the Delegates and members of the Executive Board, are going to
look upon you as a blow-hard, mean-spirited idiot. And, when your button
pushers lose confidence in your ability to convince people of believing stupid
things, - they'll dump you like you haven't bathed in a week ... simple as
that. You are such an unlikeable person that I can't wait for you, your
dog and your DD-214 to take a hike (no disrespect to your DD-214 intended).
ED BLACK WANTS TO BE TREASURER
SO BAD; HE HAS COME OUT OF THE CLOSET TO POST THE UCO DOCUMENTS REGARDING THE (9) MONTH RESIDENCY RULES ON DAVID ISRAEL’S
When I ran for Executive Board
and Vice President, I was only asked to show my Driver’s License, my Century
Village ID and to announce I was a resident for more than (9) months. That was
it until suddenly our treasurer decided to sell one unit and purchase another
in Century Village. Why suddenly should this desire for a bylaw change arise?
Why didn't it occur when John Glusak became Vice President? John has always
been a snowbird. What proof do we have that he is not domiciled here. Was it because
if you eliminated John Glusak, you would wind up with Olga Wolkenstein? Is this
what they were afraid of? Her being privy
to their secrets would force them to toe the line because she will be watching
I believe that this bylaw
change is whole heartily motivated by replacing out treasurer with Ed Black.
At the advisory meeting of July, 11,
2013 Mr. Rivera submitted a bylaw change which required all present and future
officers of UCO, if challenged, to provide proof of residency. This change, if
passed would have meant:
All residents submitting a candidacy,
or reelection to an office, whether officers or Executive BoardMembers will show proof or their
(9) nine-month residency using the following criteria:
1.Their Florida Drivers License showing
their Residence address in Century Village
2.Their Voters Registration Card
showing their Residence in Century Village
3.The prior (9) nine-monthwater billing showing their Residence address
is Century Village
(Stratford residents may use FPL
4.Any two of the above three methods
shall be considered acceptable proof.
Failure to respond to this will cause
their submission of candidacy to be canceled.
This motivation for this bylaw change
was only to discredit and remove our present treasurer who has been serving us
honorably for past three years.It was
unnecessary and a disgrace for Mr. Rivera to present this bylaw change to the
committee simply because we already have an amendment to the bylaws requiring a
(9) nine-month residency. His bylaw would have required every person running
for office to show proof of the above underlined criteria BEFORE even getting
on the ballot.
Mr. Rivera has been saying we need
Term Limits because we cannot get experience candidates. How many candidates
did he expect to get with this insane bylaw change?– Not many, I guess.
Fortunately, for the first time, the
advisory committee could not muster one vote, and the bylaw was DOA(Dead on Arrival).
and his companions continue to repeat the false accusation that the suit Myron
Solomon and Olga Wolkenstein initiated against WPRF cost the unit owners
$600.000. This is so grossly untrue that the time has come to bury this lie
once and for all. The truth is the settlement was for $3,000.000 less $600.000
for expenses, and the remainder of $2,300.000 returned to the unit owners in
the form of paying a lesser monthly fee to WPRF. (Remember, if we did not sue
the residents would not have received one penny.)
and friends are trying desperately to discredit a small group of us who are vigorously
fighting the battle to keep Century Village from being used as a revolving
credit card. We want to see financial stability and decision making that benefit
Century Village rather than destroy it.
Olga are fed up with David’s excremental verbiage. His tirades in the UCO
reporter on this issue are abhorrent to any self-respecting individual.It has finally reached a point where you must
close the lid on the casket and bury this issue.
A TERRIBLE INJUSTICE IS TAKING PLACE IN THE VILLAGE.
Bob Rivera has started a campaign to remove our esteemed treasurer. He wants to eliminate the one honest and intelligent Officer UCO has at this time. I can only guess what his real motives are, but I will say it is the most foolish thing he can do. Especially when our finances are so low, and we have to have someone like our Treasurer to watch our spending carefully.
I urge all our delegates to keep our treasurer in office.
Mr. Bob Rivera is fabricating a vicious lie about the UCO Treasurer not being a resident of Century Village because her residence is being rented out. The fact is her residence IS NOT RENTED, and Mr. Rivera should be ashamed of himself for perpetuating this lie. He appears to be taking lessons from his mentor, David Israel, in how to distort the truth.
is unfortunate that at the July 5, delegate's Assembly, the delegates decided
to disrespect the snowbirds and voted to end term limits for all officers. When
the snowbirds were here, the delegates voted to retain term limits, and as soon
as they left David Israel and his entourage decided to pull a fast one. While
the snowbirds were away, they put term limits on the agenda again. They have temporarily
succeeded. . Term limits have been abolished but next month it will be on the
agenda again, and delegates will have the opportunity to rectify the situation
by voting to have TERM LIMITS FOR ALL.
must admit that I was not surprised by the vote; I expected it.Many of the delegates are not aware of the
real David Israel. The one who has fits of anger, the one who uses his NSA
experience to tarnish the reputation of his adversaries, the one who denies
civil rights, and the one who circumvents the truth.It is unfortunate that many delegates have
come to canonize David because they are just privy to one side of him. I can just
hope that in time; most of the delegates will come to awaken to his sinister
side and VOTE TO HAVE TERM LIMITS FOR ALL THE OFFICERS OF UCO.
Grace just opined on David Israel's blog that Solomon and Wolkenstein's lawsuit cost $7,000.000. I realize that inflation is taking a toll on all of us but come on Grace, first you say it cost $600.000 now you say $7,000.000 - I think that's a little bit too far fetched.
Grace seems to be sinking deeper and deeper into the mud. Pretty soon the mud is going to turn to MERDE and she will begin to smell so bad, none of her friends will want to go near her.
Friday is the Delegate Assembly where you will have the opportunity to vote yea or nay to Term Limits.
David posted on his blog a last-ditch effort to Kill term Limits by attempting to malign the proponents FOR term limits by reminding them about the pending lawsuit against UCO. Little did he realize was that it is FOR that very reason why delegates should KEEP TERM LIMITS.
This pending lawsuit comes with a great deal of evidence to show the ineptitude and malfeasance of David Israel and the Officers of UCO. Therefore, for the time being, you should KEEP TERM LIMITS.
made a statement on David’s blog, that there was no term limits in the USA
until after 1945. True, but he neglects to say the Republicans were responsible
for eliminating them because they wanted to take the power away from the Democrats.
It’s always about power, and that is the
main reason why having termed limits is so important - it keeps the country
from becoming a dictatorship.
states, there is no term limits for Senators and Congressman, and it is STUPID
to do so. He suggests we continue to have no term limits for Senators and
Congressmen. He wants to keep EXPERIENCED Senators and Congressmen in powers
that are presently in the middle of such squabbling; they should all be thrown out.
He also claims it is a stupid suggestion to put the Term-Limitvote on hold until the snowbirds return. He says each Association has the
responsibility to have an alternate delegate present to speak for the
snowbirds. Get real Bob. Some associations are lucky to have ONE person taking
interest in their association much less an alternate. We cannot deal with Bob’s
wish fulfillment fairy tales; we must deal with present day facts. He also seems to forget that the snowbirds pay
FULL dues and are entitled to the same political decision making as the yearly
