Foothills homeowners must end 'sin' of apathy

I have lived in the greater Ahwatukee Foothills area for over 20 years. I truly believe that there is no finer place to live in Phoenix or Arizona for that matter. What we have here is truly a blessing.
I have elected to write this open letter to my neighbors to address the matter of apathy—a sin that I and many others are guilty of. It must end!
If we are to continue to enjoy all that this Community affords us, we must become more active and involved in the HOA. Two major events are about to take place in the very near future. The first is the election to amend our bylaws on July 30 and the second is the election of new Board members.
Please take the time to investigate both and actively participate. One major element of the bylaws amendment is term limits. We have several current Board members who have served admirably and selflessly for over a decade.
They have continued to serve mainly due to their commitment but also because few others have stepped forward. I thank them for what they have accomplished but it is simply time for new ideas and fresh thinking.
I plan to be a candidate for the Board. However, this is not a solicitation for your vote but a challenge to get involved.
