Letter to the Editor :  COMPASSION? THE BOARD? DURING THESE TIMES?? VP Bill Burt, “IS THERE ANYWAY WE CAN GET THIS LADY TO MOVE?”

by Carol Orr

Burt’s words expressed at Monday February 1, 2021 Work Session. Burt is referring to the Commercial Loop where a lady homeowner resides and does not meet Burt’s standards. How sleazy, how swarmy, how malevolent of him. Who do these Board members think they are? The elitists masks are off. This is who our Board really is.

No compassion. They are ramping it up. Burt’s allies are P. Harbour and D. Riddle. Riddles use of the word “forcing” concerns me as well. Ms. Lapora’s paid Assistant is doing the paper work for the CC&R committee. I believe that this is the only paid position on a committee.

At the very least Burt needs to issue a public apology. And perhaps resignation is in order. Do we really want this person governing the Ranch. This is the same person who said he doesn’t have the “temperament” for the leadership job.

Why are they so obsessed with the Commercial Loop is a mystery. The Commercial Loop did fine without them for all those years before the busy bodies started meddling. What a bunch of bullies.

Proper signage and fencing is one thing, pressuring people to move is beyond reproach. Once Burt and Harbour realized that they can’t legally do this, Jefferson co. is now involved. Chris Reeves, Code Enforcer reported yesterday at the Jeffco. Commissioners meeting that nothing can be done with the BOD’s request at this time due to the eviction restrictions.

This stuff could easily happen to anyone of us. We deserve better, or do we. I believe we do. Lastly, D. Proffitt did ask the question that she understood that disabled persons live in the Loop. Her question was ignored with no answer.

Compassion? Not an ounce.
