YOUR PROPERTY OWNER’S ASSOCIATION FILES A 175 PAGE LAWSUIT AGAINST THE RESORT
However, on October 20, 2020, the AAFPO Board, including the only 4 elected board members – Penni Davey, Sandra Trom, Carol Rupp and Holly Ham – without the courtesy of discussion or even notice, filed a 175-page lawsuit against the Resort, alleging among other things that the Resort has withheld payment of assessments owed to its organization.
This accusation is unfounded, it does not respect the governing documents both parties have followed for the past 23 years, and it was formulated behind closed doors, but most importantly, it does not appear to reflect the wishes or opinions of the Membership. The complaint contains the unrepresentative views of 4 board members acting without any discernible support or authority.
The Resort denies each and every claim of the lawsuit, and it will vigorously defend itself no matter the cost.
At the last annual election, the Membership selected 4 new board members to join the required 9-member Board of Directors representing over 5,000 Angel Fire property owners. However, within 60 days of the election, 5 of the 9 directors resigned, presumably due to the actions and anti-Resort agenda of only a few Directors. The Resort alleges that the Board of Directors did not have the required quorum and the ability to lawfully conduct business. Undeterred by the Resort’s expressed concerns, these 4 directors appointed new Directors and have been meeting in secret, making decisions effecting the Membership as a whole.
Since the election, the following events have occurred:
AAFPO’s actions threaten delay of development until a resolution to the lawsuit can be reached. These projects include, without limitation, improvements to the new base area, a new wind-resistant chairlift, a townhome project and new subdivisions. Instead, the Resort is now forced to conserve working capital to fight this unwarranted lawsuit, diverting time, energy and money away from its plans for future development. AAFPO’s actions threaten your real estate values and future membership rights.
The Resort will, of course, aggressively defend this lawsuit. However, Angel Fire Resort believes it is important the Membership is apprised of the actions of AAFPO and how they are spending your Membership dues.
A few important things to know about Angel Fire Resort:
It is important for you to understand the actions taken by this Board in your name, and how these 4 directors may delay expenditures benefitting your membership and real estate, the amenities, the Resort and the community of Angel Fire. The Resort believes that it is important for Membership to send a clear message that a few disgruntled and misguided people, acting without legitimate authority, should not imperil a decades-old relationship so many worked so hard to create.
