Why won't Plantation directors answer important questions?

Re: Plantation article of May 20(Plantation battle drags on, heats up).

I want to ask a question of the Board of Directors at Plantation. Reference your article concerning the ongoing problems at Plantation. What are they afraid of? We saw during the last president's reign how to divert the main issues from those of substance to those of foolishness. The board is not answering the questions of the people at the meetings. This problem could be resolved if the board would answer the questions and not turn the issues around.

This is not a feud between management and Mary Jo Kail; this is an issue about a concerned citizen and homemaker in Plantation. Why won't the board answer the following questions: Can you account for the money received for the sale of the palm trees? Why are they being sold? Who is responsible for dumping the barrels in the lakes after being told not to by environmental agencies? How can you justify the cost of the barrels and the thousands spent to remove them?

Why would certain board members send letters saying they do not want Mary Jo to call on them? After all, they are supposedly there to represent the owners of Plantation.

Mary Jo is not against the Boys and Girls Club per se. She is against the slipshod manner in which it is being forced down the throats of the homeowners in Plantation. Why are they afraid to answer the questions about liability future costs, etc.? Why won't they answer the questions instead of turning the issues to a supposed feud?
