This letter is to endorse the most highly qualified candidate for the Tahoe Donner Association Board of Directors based on my experience serving on the board the past five years, twice as president.
I endorse Jim Stang as an outstanding candidate that will bring a positive contribution to the association. Jim not only possesses a vast amount of financial knowledge and experience, but also has contributed substantially to the current financial health of the association. Jim has comprehensive knowledge on the status of all the facilities and the general plan that will move Tahoe Donner ahead in a manner that will improve the value of ownership to members.
Jim Stang has contributed prudent financial advise to the association, serving on the finance committee while the board made many important purchases such as the Euer Valley acquisition and other needed improvements within budget and without raising dues or a special assessment. Tahoe Donner members now enjoy owning in one of the most financially healthy associations in the nation.
It is important for a candidate to contribute in a positive manner to manage the association, and base decisions on up-to-date knowledge by being actively engaged. During my tenure on the board, I only observed one candidate that attended board meetings on a regular basis and has kept actively abreast on the financial details and the vast improvements made or planned for Tahoe Donner.
Jim Stang represents that kind of professional person that will keep Tahoe Donner on track with the needed improvements and service levels to benefit members, within budget, and support our professional and well-respected current management.
~Suzy Knisley, retired Tahoe Donner Board director and president, 2007-2012
