At the July 17, 2021 Board of Directors meeting, the board addressed the acrimony and misinformation in our community. They presented a list of recent hot topics being discussed on social media. All are valid topics to address. However, the tone and tenor, and the intention of some of these posts raises concern.
If the intention is to make things better, wouldn’t it make more sense to address the comments directly to those who can make a change or give supporting information/clarification? Getting to the heart of the matter would be far more helpful than to “gas-light” topics or people online, thereby offering no help to the community, only acrimony.
Your board is a group of volunteers who are serious about helping the community and making PML the best place that it can be. They are primarily here to facilitate the business of PML as outlined in our By-laws and CC&Rs. They are available to listen and respond to issues, and use a variety of media to share their perspective and thoughts to the membership. Furthermore, every PML manager has a monthly article in the PML News that offers insight into what they are doing. Members are encouraged to do their due diligence on issues and bring concerns, suggestions and comments to the appropriate parties.
This “Just the Facts” column is a new communication method to keep our members informed. It will appear monthly in the PML News, and as needed to address current concerns on the official PML Facebook page. We will also maintain and archive here on the official PML website.
