Current candidates for positions on Board of Governors are Bob Trocki and Sharon Bruce.
All nominations will be taken from the floor at the meeting of June 27, 2020.
My name is Bob Trocki, and I live at 22 Blue Heron Rd. I would appreciate your vote for an officer position on the Black Point Beach Club Association Board of Governors.
My wife, Cindy, and I fell in love with Black Point from the first time we visited in 2015. We bought our home the following winter and love living here. We have 3 children, Leah, Ryan and Kyle.
I am running for the Board as I am concerned about the lack of financial controls on the Association’s spending and the inconsistent application of the regulations of our charter.
With respect to the financial side, I am the Vice President of Underwriting and Actuarial Services for a regional health plan in Massachusetts. In this role, I have fiscal responsibility for pricing decisions that impact the company and to ensure we have an adequate level of reserves to fund our future liabilities. The Board needs to be better stewards of the Association’s finances. Members need to be assured their money is being spent wisely. This needs to be done with transparency and accountability.
I am troubled by the way the Town of East Lyme infringes upon our status as a municipality, and even more by the apparent unwillingness of the current Board to stand up for our rights. Our house sits across West Lane from the development which has been proposed for Old Black Point. This development will utilize the water system the town installed exclusively for Black Point and add additional traffic on our roads on top of the increase we already have this year as a result of the card reader and gate installed by the Old Black Point Association for its members. We are fighting this development at our own cost with the help of other like-minded residents of Black Point. If this development is allowed to go through, it is only a matter of time before similar development may come through on Billow.
I will provide a voice for not only residents of the southern part of Black Point, but all residents, to make sure our community remains the little slice of Heaven we all love.
I appreciate your consideration and hope you will vote for me on Saturday for the Black Point Board of Governors.
