When we started this blog on March 7th, 2012 we had no idea how residents of Farmington Woods would respond to our message or be curious enough to see what we were trying to accomplish. Little did we know that we would reach 5,000 pageviews in just over two months or even more incredibly, 2,000 in the last three weeks.
The vote on May 10th reinforced our feeling that most residents want their condo fees and district taxes to go toward maintaining the beauty of Farmington Woods, both the grounds and the buildings. For them, the golf course/clubhouse operation is secondary. Results of 67-33% and 81-19% don't lie.
You may not know it but the referendum you just took part in had a record number of voters participating: 1,023 residents voted! We actually had more votes cast on the bond referendum than the Town of Avon had on its budget and they have 11,000 registered voters.
So,congratulation to those who turned out. And to those that didn't, vote next time. If we want representative democracy here at Farmington Woods it's really very easy. All we have to do is vote.
Anyway, by the looks of things people are reading what we have to say here at http://www.farmingtonwoodsinsider.blogspot.com/. And if you'll keep reading, we'll keep writing. If you have something you'd like to contribute, email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post it.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, if I had 5,000 page views on my business website in the span of two and a half months, I'd be writing this blog from the Bahamas. Or not.
In the meantime, waiter, can I get another Bahama Mama?
