CC & R Ballot
Recount Results for Questions
#2, #3 and #7
3/13/15 This morning the CC&R ballot questions, #2, #3 and #7, were recounted due to close voting. Each person counting and tallying the ballot questions had a second person sitting next to them to insure the correct answer was read and tallied properly. The final tallies were also rechecked.
FINAL RECOUNT RESULTS
The numbers slightly changed, but not enough to change the end result. Due to current CC&R requirement, 816 yes votes are needed for the ballot questions to pass.
Question #2) Allowing the HOA to work with Golf Club in common projects to benefit the community - 798 yes votes received for the proposition.
STILL DID NOT PASS
Question #3) Spending Limits for Capital Improvement Projects that will need homeowner vote approval – 824 yes votes received for the proposition. CONFIRMED PASSING
Question #7) Changing future voting of CC&R revisions from the current required 816 votes to pass to having at least 50% plus one voter participation and then a 2/3 majority of the votes cast – 809 yes votes received for the proposition.
STILL DID NOT PASS
From the recount results there was not enough change in any of the three questions to affect the original final outcome.
We would like to thank those who helped recount the ballots and all the many volunteers who helped with the entire CC&R Road to Vote process.

SCAM & IDENTITY THEFT PROTECTION
Courtney Bennett of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office visited SunBird and made an awesome presentation on ways to help protect against scams and identity theft.
Here is a summary of some of the items addressed at this meeting. The best rule of thumb is “If it sounds too good to be true, it is”. If you did not purchase a ticket or participate in a lottery and you receive notice of winning but need to pay money first or cash check first before receiving the full amount, it’s a scam. “Spoof” emails are being sent meaning emails that look and have the logo of real companies stating your delinquent or they need further personal information from you. If in question, contact the company directly by using other contact routes other than the ones provided in the “spoof” email.
The IRS will not call you or send emails to you if they need to contact you. The IRS will contact you by postal mail. When making payments online use credit cards and not debt cards. Better yet purchase a prepaid credit card to minimize the amount of potential theft. When making payments online always look for the “https” in the browser address. The “s” means secure and a picture of a lock.
To minimize telephone soliciting please either visit donotcall.gov or call 1(888) 382-1222. Charities, politicians, and government agencies do not have abide by the “do not call” list.
For free credit reports to monitor your credit activity, please visit annualcreditreport.com. Arizona has organized a group called Taskforce Against Senior Abuse (TASA) to help with any questions or concerns of identity theft or scams. TASA can be contact at (602) 542-2124 or azag.gov/seniors/elder-abuse. We thank Courtney for visiting SunBird and excellent presentation.
