Recommendation comes after yesterday’s Meet the Candidates Night
PLEASE VOTE FOR: Judy Neyhart:
We want to share our unqualified endorsement of Judy Neyhart for the Pelican Landing Board of Directors. We feel so strongly about ensuring Judy’s election to the board, we recommend you vote only for Judy, as casting a vote for a second candidate could diminish her chances of being elected. ( see the footnote about “bullet voting” for the rationale behind this recommendation)
When elected, Judy will help lead Pelican Landing through the turnover process and she will bring common sense to the day to day operations of our “small city”. Judy has worked tirelessly on behalf of the residents of Pelican Landing for well over a decade. Judy is currently a Co-Chair on the Unit Owner’s Committee and she understands not only the issues before the PLCA Board, but also those concerns of the residents she has so ably represented.
Judy has the institutional knowledge, the command of the facts and the steely resolve to make things happen. She is determined to communicate with the residents and act on their collective best interests. She will build bridges not walls.
Please review Judy’s resume and pass this along to your friends throughout Pelican Landing and The Colony. And please cast your single vote for Judy.

PLEASE DO NOT VOTE FOR: Clyde Knowles
We thank Clyde for his year of service on the PLCA board but his comments at yesterday’s Meet the Candidates Night clearly showed he will not represent the interests of the RBC, our supporters and Pelican Landing in general. Most importantly, he offers an inordinate amount of trust of WCI, trust we thought might be shaken when even he was surprised by their sudden rezoning request to build 4 towers in Raptor Bay. He stated that he has no interest in proactively working to protect the strain on our amenities that annexing more WCI property into Pelican Landing would create. His demeanor was tough, some say arrogant or combative, and not the style we need to reboot the governance of our community. He spoke of professionalism but has shown judgment lapses and lack of respect that are contrary to that.
WHAT ABOUT: Joanne Holt and John Tomlinson?
Joanne and John are relatively new to full time living in our community and we are pleased that each wishes to serve as a member of the PLCA Board. They each have impressive backgrounds and skills that can help us move the community forward. There are many positive attributes that each could bring to the board. But there are too many unknowns in their positions for our endorsement. We recommend that each do more research and flesh out their positions, especially as it relates to annexation and turnover. There is a lot at stake in this election and we can’t take chances. A vote for either could dilute the chance of Judy getting elected which is why we strongly recommend voting only for her.
WHAT IF YOU ALREADY VOTED?:
The voting instructions that came with your ballot says “Once the Association receives your ballot, it may not be changed or withdrawn”.
However, Pelican Landing’s Annual Meeting and Election Procedures (PLCA Policy Document number 100.17) Click this link for the document that “a Meet the Candidates Night will be held prior to the mailing of the election materials”.
This is to ensure that a resident make an informed decision before choosing his/her representative on the board. Most residents received their ballots this past Saturday, before last nights event.
If you already submitted your ballot and have changed your mind on the selection of your candidate(s), we believe that you should be able to request a new ballot at the Pelican Landing Community Center and you can change your vote prior to the election on March 22nd. A quick check finds that there is nothing in Florida State Statues nor our Governing Documents that disallow this. Please let us know if you experience any problems
