McGuirk seeks a seat on Master Association board of directors after being kicked off North Association board

In a letter sent to Edgewater Isle Master Association members, former Edgewater Isle North Association board member Kelly McGuirk offers her candidacy for a seat on the board of directors in an election to be held on August 8, 2022.

It's an interesting choice for McGuirk: about five years ago she was kicked off, removed from the Edgewater Isle North Association board of directors in a vote of owners for what the North board said were McGuirk's improprieties. Examples of those improprieties, according to the Edgewater Isle North Association, included creating fake documentation, impersonating another board member via email, impersonating a resident making a monetary claim, and being censured twice by the North board.

Why does Kelly McGuirk want back on a board of directors?


Previously while on the Edgewater Isle North board of directors, McGuirk "Swindled a Free Lawn from a Patsy Board of Directors" and bought herself some Starbucks coffee and called it "office supplies." Further, McGuirk advertised her husband's business to the association by using an Association newsletter (a benefit received only by McGuirk). Bottom line: self-dealing transactions that benefit none other than Kelly McGuirk.

Self Dealing: The conduct of a trustee, an attorney, or other fiduciary that consists of taking advantage of his or her position in a transaction and acting for his or her own interests rather than for the interests of the beneficiaries of the trust or the interests of his or her clients.

Candidate statement

Hello Edgewater Isle Neighbors, 
My name is Kelly McGuirk, and I have been a North Homeowner for over fifteen years. 
I would like to sit on the Master Board and represent our amazing community filled with talented individuals. I am very much aware of the concerns and various topics related to homeowners as I attend most every Master and North HOA meeting. I have volunteered and served our community as a board member and committee member approximately six plus years so I am familiar with the BOD role. My personal experience encompasses providing excellent customer service, contract negotiations, and familiarity with EWJ budget creation, which includes operating and reserve accounts and financial review. Other topics I am familiar with include general maintenance of condo, landscape and vendor management, have extensive experience in working with a number of management companies over the years and knowledge of what should be expected of them to keep our business running in a professional and proactive manner. I would like you to please consider casting your vote and supporting me on representing you. I am a strong advocate for the EWI homeowner. am willing to ask unpopular questions, learn why things are working a certain way and even help create new and improved meaningful policy changes. I believe that being held accountable and transparent are very important characteristics in business operations running successfully. Our homeowners/neighbors are number one and deserve to be represented and included again in our HOA business matters. I will work to negotiate a win/win outcome to keep our community thriving. Thank you for your consideration. Your neighbor, Kelly McGuirk

Emphasis on Financial Operations

McGuirk's candidacy letter says:

"My personal experience encompasses providing excellent customer service, contract negotiations, and familiarity with EWI budget creation, which includes operating and reserve accounts and financial review."

Yet McGuirk omitted the part about where she was removed by a vote of the members at Edgewater Isle North in 2016. While on the board for the North Association in 2003, she benefited herself in a self-dealing landscape project, even signing the check to pay a vendor in this self-dealing transaction.
