Farewell!

On April 9th, 2018 I resigned as president of the Aristocrat Condo Association and Stan Eisen took over as acting president of the association.

As some of you may have already heard, my wife Denise and I are leaving Florida and moving to a new winter home in Aruba.

It has been my great pleasure to do my best to help you, my friends and neighbors, by serving as the president of the Aristocrat Condo Association over the past 8+ years.

Whether it be with the addition of the electronic access system, our new sophisticated alarm system, the sidewalk on SE 12th street or the pedestrian crossing on A1A, the safety of our residents has always been my primary concern. 

I’ve helped to build a strong financial position for the Association with currently over $200,000 in reserves and kept the  building well maintained with our “if it’s broken, we fix it” policy. 

We successfully passed the dreaded “40 year inspection”, refreshed our lobby, upgraded our elevators and cooling tower and are in the process of installing a new hallway AC system. We even updated our governing documents for the first time in 25 years.

By implementing a phone broadcast system and sending email blasts I did my best to keep you informed, especially when I knew that you were concerned as hurricanes approached. 

I leave knowing that the best interests of the Aristocrat and its owners will continue to be at the forefront as we have the most engaged group of members on the board of directors that we have ever had during the time that I have been involved with the Association. With that team combined with our new, dynamic and tech savvy office manager, Ali Cannone, you will be in good hands. 

To those of you who have been supportive of me over the years:
Your votes, your show of appreciation and your positive feedback has always made my efforts feel worthwhile.  They say that being a condo president is a thankless task. Because of your kind words, it wasn’t.
I will miss you all.

It is with a sense of adventure and a heavy heart that Denise and I leave our Aristocrat neighbors and friends. 

We wish you health, happiness and the best that life can offer.

John
