For those that do not know me, my name is Penny Bateman. I have decided to run for the Board primarily because I would like to see transparency and a sense of community restored to our association, and, because I can bring valuable board experience to the table. My husband Don and I have lived here since April of 2014. We have made many good friends on the Flying L, and we have had lots of serious fun over the years playing golf, visiting in back yards, meeting new residents at POA “socials”, and truly enjoying being part of a very special community.I was appointed to the Flying L POA Board of Directors in February of 2016, elected in November 2016, and served until I resigned in March of 2018 due to a perceived conflict of interest after I went to work for the new owners of the Flying L Ranch Resort. I have considerable knowledge of state statutes, our governing covenants and by-laws, and the overall operations of our association. Admittedly, I made mistakes during my tenure, but I learned from them. If elected, I promise to work hard and to encourage board members to take measures to accomplish the purposes I stated above for running. Additionally, I would like to see the board revisit guidelines that were established during my time on the board for covenant enforcement, mowing and tree maintenance, and road building and repairs. More than anything else, I promise to always have the best interest of our community at heart.
