Hammocks Money Matters

Florida State law requires all homeowners associations with operating budgets exceeding $500,000 to prepare externally audited financial statements each year.

The last official one we have seen was for 2014, when the Hammocks was led by a fiscally responsible Board.

Since 2015, Presidents Rosanna Cetraro, Maria Teresa Martinez and Marglli Gallego respectively, have led the Hammocks Boards, and during these years requests for documents have largely gone unanswered.  The law states that the association has 10 days to comply with homeowner written requests for association documents, delivered via certified letter.  Information reaching us from inside the Clubhouse indicate that Marglli Gallego has instructed the staff to NOT accept certified letters from mail carriers.

What happened to our 25 MILLION DOLLARS???

There have been no board meetings for as long as we can remember, so kudos to Marglli Gallego for not canceling last Wednesday's budget meeting under the pretense of "no quorum" like she did last year.
Alas the praise stops there...  [Click 'Read more' below to continue]

Tick Tock.

Marglli Gallego finally acknowledges in writing to the Heron community that she is under criminal investigation by the authorities, but she tries to whitewash the facts by stating:
"... The only reason there is a criminal investigation is because MARIA ALONSO AND HER ATTORNEY REINALDO CASTELLANOS WENT TO THE POLICE WITH FALSE ACCUSATIONS.  Their motive is to stay in control of HERON AND NOT HOLD ELECTIONS..."

Ha ha ha ha HA!  Really?

Behold the missing page!

Almost halfway through December and there is no mention of the 2019 Hammocks Board of Directors' Election.  This is yet another breach of the stipulations of our Governing Documents - nothing new for our current Board of Directors - Authorities please take note!

Recently, we have received in the mail notification of the upcoming 2019 Budget Adoption Meeting to be held next Friday, December 21, 6 PM at the Clubhouse, but not the proposed budget that homeowners are entitled to review in good time beforehand. Another violation.

Junk "fish wrap" (now reduced to one folded page) brochure, promoting the board members has been hand-delivered to our doors, but nothing about the Election. 

Madam President (Marglli Gallego): we understand that due to the lawsuit, you cannot consult your former Attorney Celena Nash who might know about these things. So in case you have lost your reference copy of the Hammocks Governing Docs, or just the relevant page so you don't know you need to call an election,  HERE IS THE MISSING PAGE!

Click HERE to see the details of Celena Nash's lawsuit against the Hammocks (public record).

Since we know that some board communications tend to miraculously bypass certain communities, please let us know, via the comments, if you have received anything related to the 2019 Election. Otherwise, we know you have lots to say. The previous article is now closed for comments, please ensure that you get caught up, then continue the conversation here... Take it away Truth Seekers!

This post is now closed for comments, please continue the conversation on the current article.

The Hammocks Hustle

Above: a thick layer of disgusting brown muck lines the sides of our lake. The 2015 Board of Directors fired the contractors who used to maintain the lake and it is unclear who, if anyone, does it now. This is just one sign of the deplorable state of our community today.

Leading up to the 2015 Hammocks Board of Directors Election, Marglli Gallego pounded the pavements in our community declaring herself independent of all other candidates and gathering support in what appeared to be a genuine desire to make the Hammocks an even better community.

The cycle of abuse

We know the Marglli Gallego community take-over strategy well by now:

Befriend (one or more in the community)
Demoralize (community members by showing all that is 'wrong')
Discredit (the current Board members by accusing them of wrongdoing)
Instigate (a recall of the current Board if possible; rig next election)
Implant (herself and/or her friends on the new Board)
Divert (the community funds to her associates through new contracts)
Select new community and repeat.

It appears that once again the DBPR has failed to connect the dots and identify M.A.R.G.L.L.I.   G.A.L.L.E.G.O. as the source of all evil in the Hammocks, facilitating her latest attempt to take the Heron Board.  Elections for the Heron Board of Directors will be held on May 10th and all the relevant information and instructions has been mailed to all homeowners there.

Our warning to the Heron community remains the same as previous years:

3 years - waiting to exhale

Another record-breaking landslide election victory to Marglli Gallego and friends. 2018 Hammocks Board of Directors with "President Gallego" now, in case you hadn't heard. 
If the past is any guide to the future, then we'd better brace ourselves for more of the same or even worse. Over the past 3 years, an increasingly emboldened Marglli Gallego has continually refined her successful ORGANIZED CRIME formula and retained control of the Hammocks. Since SHE holds the key to the ballot box, only the authorities can intervene now and put our community back on the right side of the law. 
We wait with bated breath! [Click 'Read more' below to continue]
