McGuirk seeks a seat on Master Association board of directors after being kicked off North Association board
July 25, 2022
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.
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.
