Election Cancelled!
Hi, Neighbors:
It is my unfortunate duty to inform you that because of an administrative breakdown, the May 24, 2016 Villages of Marlborough Community Association (VOM) Annual Meeting and Election has been canceled.
The mailing that we just completed, which contained the Notice and Proxy was deeply flawed. It contained addresses five miles or more outside of VOM’s boundaries. Those addresses were included in the total count of 1, 863, addresses. We estimate that 1/3 to ½ of addresses were not in VOM. That mailing list was to replace the corrupt one that ProCom passed on to Blackstone.
Our attorney advised us that we need to reschedule the meeting and obtain an accurate mailing list so that all homeowners will be notified of the date, place and time of the Annual Meeting and Election. We will pursue satisfaction from the flawed email list provider, but our immediate focus is on creating a list so that we can move on with the Annual Meeting and Election.
Considering that the entire mail-out has to be redone; the notice and proxies have to be reprinted because of the date changes, the soonest we can reschedule is June 28, 2016. Any date prior to that will not work; ether too soon to be certain that all the administrative parts  will be completed or scheduling conflicts such as court on June 20-23, 2016, VOM vs Codale. 
We are doing all we can to get the word out to all homeowners, but we are limited considering we don’t have a mailing list we can depend on. We have posted yard signs at the entrance to the community indicating that the meeting is CANCELED. This message will be posted on the website, and we will send it to all on Mr. Bowers email network. We are asking you to pass this information on to your neighbors so all will be aware of this change.
We are so sorry for the inconvenience.

VOM Community Yardsale -- June 4, 2016: To be rescheduled do to flawed mailing.
Spring cleaning is in full swing and what better way to help everyone get rid of unwanted items than to have a yard sale!  This will be the third community yard sale for VOM and we are going to change it up this time and have all of the sellers group in one place rather than have the buyers come find us throughout the community.  We originally had sellers set up at their homes for convenience, but we found that buyers had trouble navigating through the maze of roads in our community to find all the great deals so, this time we will all set up in the open area on Governors Grove at Colonels Choice intersection.   VOM will post signs one week prior and state VOM YARDSALE THIS SATURDAY 8AM-2PM plus some with arrows and I will post ads online in the weeks prior to the event, the rest is up to sellers:  Sellers will provide their own tables, seats, shading, etc. for them to be out all morning and everyone participating must be able to have a space up at the sidewalk for their displays.  The hours are as always 8AM-2PM for the specified Saturday only, so it doesn’t impose on traffic or appearance of the community for more than a few hours.  If anyone has any questions, you can contact me at

Trash, Litter, and Stuff on our Streets
Department of Public Works and Transportation (DPW&T) and Department of Energy (DOE) can provide materials (bags and “grabbers”) for community clean-up. Well-advertised community clean-ups (as opposed to paid contractors) help build community bonds, and influences residents into taking ownership of their own environments.

May 19, 2015 Annual Meeting closed for lack of decorum.
Because of the lack of decorum, disruptions, and the uncontrollable antics of the Cooper/Roberts Group at the May19, 2015 Annual Meeting as well as the August 18, 2014, BOD Meetings, all mee
tings have been suspended until an election can be held. We cannot trust that these same individuals and their supporters won’t act just as unruly at the next meeting as they did at those meetings. We know that homeowners must make special arrangements in most cases to attend a meeting. The antics of that group would result in a colossal waste of everyone’s time.
As you know, we terminated Procom as the VOM Manager and replaced them with Blackstone Management; an action that saves us more than $40,000 a year. Union Bank who operates the Smart Street Division to whom many of our residents paid their assessment, refuses to provide VOM with the list of those who have paid. In order for a vote to count we must verify that the voter is not more than 60 days delinquent. Union Bank says that Procom is their client, even though the account is for Villages of Marlborough, and even though the current Board President is signed on to the account. Without Procom’s direction Union Bank will not release the information.
Procom says they no longer have anything to do with this and refuses to assist. Our attorney his now involved.
A vote count cannot be done without that information. Consequently, an election cannot be held without a count of all the votes. So, not to waste anyone’s time and expose homeowners to the constant bickering, distractions, and disorderly behavior of some who claim power, no meetings will be held until all the information is available and an election can be held.

Hi, Neighbors:
On October 9, 2015, ProCom returned the $170,298.48, that they had taken control of in two of our bank accounts. The estimated $50,000 in a Cash Deposit has yet to be recovered, but the account has been frozen until we sort everything out. 
This happened because of our dogged determination that this would not stand, great lawyering by our attorney, the newsletter we published announcing this incident and the avalanche of emails you sent us protesting this action. There is no doubt in my mind that without these four elements we this would not have happened so quickly after we discovered the raid on our bank accounts. 
Exactly what we will do and how for legal reasons will have to be carefully managed. Rest assured, this is not over.

URGENT!!! Are you in danger of being labeled as not paying your assessment fees?

Hi, Neighbors:
As you may know we are being sued by ProCom for terminating their contract. Procom and Union Bank in Georgia are being uncooperative in regards to Villages of Marlborough Community Association (VOM)  accessing the remaining account we have at that bank. Even though my name is listed as a signer for that checking account, the bank told me that ProCom is their client; therefore the Association must go through ProCom for access. ProCom informed us through communications with Blackstone that they no longer have anything to do with the account and will not assist.

We are in a predicament. We know that some of you had your bank accounts set up to automatically pay the VOM’s annual assessment. However, without cooperation from the bank and ProCom, we cannot verify those payments. Some of you told us you did receive a coupon from ProCom for the 2015 assessments and paid it. We are aware that some of you paid the assessments without prompting. Eventually, we will gain access to the account, but in order for us to move forward we need to know who paid assessments to Union Bank’s Smart Street. Without that information, we can only verify those who paid assessments to Blackstone, as we requested that you do.
It is very important that you notify us if you received a coupon from ProCom and if you made a payment.
To avoid being cited as delinquent, please let us know if you paid ProCom via Smart Street and provide documentation, a copy of payment transaction, check and or coupon of any payment you made. This information will allow us to bring our records up to date and avoid citing you as delinquent. Please respond by May 20, 2015.
