I think a question needs to be brought up... Why is Ed Grossman, a delegate and NOT an officer or committee member (that I am aware of) calling anyone and trying to negotiate ANYTHING for the village? HE IS NOT AN ELECTED OFFICIAL and therefore has absolutely no authority to call anyone and try to negotiate anything. He should be reprimanded for doing so.
It is the job of the ELECTED officials of the United Civic Organization of Century Village. The reason for UCO existing is to negotiate the best possible contracts for the village. THAT is the function and purpose of UCO..... Bob Rivera.
In response to this posting :
. Ed Grossman is a delegate. That means he is a member of the Board of Directors for Century Village. That makes him one of David Israel's supervisors. A delegate is in fact an officer. And he is elected to that position by his association.And as President of his association, it is his DUTY to ensure that his constituents are getting a fair shake . Ed isn't trying to negotiate anything. Calling comcast had the effect of bringing them back to the table so THEY could negotiate a better deal. They had been closed out and their initial proposal had been rejected. If no one spoke up then Century Village would be voting on The Atlantic Broadband proposal at the March Delegates assembly.
Does anyone think that a resident needs to seek authority from anyone to make a phone call. It's a free country, anyone is free to call anyone they like, and as for reprimands, Who is going to dish out the reprimand? who has that authority? If any reprimands are to be dished out, David Israel should be reprimanded for continuing to pursue his dream of WIFI when the assembly said NO! Further to this he should be reprimanded for signing a huge contract with CSI without getting authority from the delegates ( Ed Grossman included ) and for not seeking competitive bids for the service.
