Hopefully an honest, knowledgable, experienced individual with integrity. Its difficult for people without experience to provide the oversight necessary to serve on a MUD board. When a citizen raises concerns that there are chunks flowing out of the discharge pipe on Pompano- maybe go take a look instead of telling the citizens its impossible. There needs to be a system of checks and balances. We dont have that system right now although I believe the new company TOPS is doing a good job.
We are likely going to need additional repairs, we cant trust the current board to present a plan to our residents. We will have a hard time funding anything in this environment.
For sure it can be a thankless job. But if you do what is in the best interests of the majority of your community, and you keep the community informed, thats half the battle.
Research, make a plan, get your community on board with it through education and communication, carry out the plan, evaluate the outcome, keep the community informed.
Our current board is failing in several areas. Mostly divided priorities and lack of knowledge and experience.
