the people in our village.

As a member of the SECURITY Committee I was very instrumental in 1 year member


advising and checking the bar code/transponder systems. I spend days
walking around the village, checking the condition of the fences, taking
pictures and repairing where needed, because I care about your safety.

As a member of the TRANSPORTATION Committee I have been active in 1 year member

As a member of the ADVISORY Committee I have been instrumental in not a member


changing our bylaws to up-to-date, because I care.

As a member of the SAFETY Committee I have been helping in making our not a member
village safer, because I care.

I removed our insurance policies from the maintenance companies that nothing
were unprofessionally handled and were in a confusing stage, and I united
it under our UCO INSURANCE Committee.

I was extremely successful in handling over 2,000 Hurricane claims. It nothing


was unprecedented compared to the other Century Villages and other
communities, because I care.

I was instrumental in changing WPRF insurance policies from what could nothing
have been a tremendous liability to our residents with millions in deduct-
ibles at outrageous cost. We now have veto powers, much cheaper pre-
miums, and by far better coverage and deductibles, because I care about
you.

I reversed many insurance claim denials to the Associations into full pay- nothing
ments. It was hard, it was nerve racking, but I was successful because I
care.

When Wellington Federal was disconnected from our village and had to nothing
pay extra $850,000 in insurance premiums, it was I who reached all the
way to Tallahassee and reversed the decree. The $850,000 was returned
to the residents of Wellington, because I care.

I introduced Mitigation Reports to our village and the result was nothing — trying to stop UCO volunteers’ help
$2,500,000 cheaper premiums on our property policies for the Associa-
tions. I also introduced Mitigation Reports to the Unit Owners and the
results were up to 70% cheaper policies, because I care.

When no one believed that it was possible, I managed to get $168,000 nothing
more for the UCO office relating to the hurricane claim under the code
insurance provision, because I care.

My biggest achievement has been helping the private rsidents, hundreds nothing
of them, in their private struggle against rejections of insurance claims
that can ruin their life. I have been successful in seeing to it that everyone
got full payment. Why? Because I love and care for my neighbors and our
residents!

I want to be UCO’s president because UCO has come a long, long way in
making many things happen for you, but still has a way to go to make ev-
eryone understand and appreciate what their ultimate goals are. I believe
that I can lead down that road.

I have always been here for you, and I will continue to be.

Please come to my meeting on Friday, February 26th at 10 a.m. in Room C


at the Clubhouse.

This meeting is hosted by Cambridge F Condo Association under the


agenda of “the Future of Century Village”. Come to the meeting and ALL
your questions will be answered.

Why Do I Want To Be President of UCO?


By: Dave Israel
First and foremost: I have lived here for 9 years and have a love for the Village. I would like to repay the Village for what it is has meant to me.
I have the skills and experience to help in this capacity.
What skills and what experience? I’m a detail person. I worked as a cryptologist with the National Security Agency for over 30 years I was
the chief of a large division of analysts; I solved many intractable problems, the solutions thereof impacting positively on the National Security,
I received the National Intelligence Distinguished Service Medal; the highest award bestowed by the Intelligence Community. Herewith the
unclassified Citation:
“In recognition of his especially meritorious service with the Intelligence Community for over twenty years. During this period he has
earned admiration and respect for his breadth and depth of technical knowledge. He has made key discoveries which have impacted
decisions making at the highest levels of government. Mr. Israel has patiently given scores of intelligence professionals the benefit of his
knowledge and experience and his superb leadership has provided an example for a new generation of analysts. His exemplary service
and dedication to duty reflect great credit on himself, the National Security Agency and the Intelligence Community”
After the terrorist attack on September 11th, I was recalled to set up entirely new protocols to find the perpetrators and launch new capabilities to
prevent additional attacks. I know how to do research and analysis, ferret out facts, and get to the bottom of things when faced with a question,
I do not guess; I get the accurate answer. I also know how to delegate. I have been a vice president of UCO now for the past year, in that short
time, I have created the kernel of an Information Technology department to maintain the UCO Computers and the network that controls the gate
security system and the UCO telephone network. I have been the president of my association for five years, and I serve on a number of UCO
committees; such as Advisory, Cable, Security, Operations, Insurance, and Finance. When complex questions need to be researched, which require
correct answers; I do that research for UCO.
What are my main concerns? It troubles me that our people go into UCO and are sometimes treated rudely. It troubles me also that UCO
personnel too often give out misleading or just plain wrong information. It troubles me that some of our operations are so cumbersome and time-
consuming. With the cooperation of the officers and the Delegate Assembly, I will change this. Clearly the goal is to place more professional and
highly experienced personnel as part of the UCO staff. Prime candidate departments for personnel upgrades would be Finance, Investigations,
and Information Technology and Communications. I am dedicated to total transparency in UCO Operations no secret gatherings and decision

for President of UCO:
1. He already brings sanity and reason to the village.
2. He is genuinely caring and protective of older residents. He treats
everyone with respect and dignity.
3. He is incredibly productive, knowledgeable, and dedicated. He is a
wizard with anything computer related. He researches each and every
issue thoroughly.
4. He will bring UCO finances up to Generally Accepted Accounting
Procedures and make finances transparent. He is economy minded and will
find state-of-the-art solutions.
5. He is efficient. He makes other people more productive, with no wasted
time or effort.
6. He will implement proper oversight of all UCO functions. There will be
no coverups out of misplaced loyalty.
7. He will implement proper following of bylaws. There will be REAL open
meetings and improved communications.
8. He will enforce ethics, obtain proper bids, no advertising or soliciting
for businesses. HE DOES NOT RUN ANY PERSONAL BUSINESSES ON THE
SIDE; AND THERE ARE NO POTENTIAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST.
9. He will keep professional and cordial relationships with our business
associates. He is a tough negotiator - not inclined to sue over everything.
10. He will bring progress in understanding that CV is much too big to be
advised and directed by amateurs.

making in the dark; My UCO Administration will say “YES” at every possible opportunity. It is my unalterable task to stop UCO interference
in Association affairs.
What operations would I change? Two are most urgent. We need to simplify the procedure for getting transponders. We need to install
transponders “on demand,” no more nonsense of making appointments weeks in advance; if you come in for a transponder, you will get it then,
not later; no more keeping people waiting inordinate lengths of time. We also need to make the procedure for getting prospective owners and
renters investigated and approved a smoother and faster process. A professional needs to be brought in to assist with our investigative procedures
so we do a much better job of it and avoid legal pitfalls.
Century Village is a medium-size town. With 14,000 in-season residents and a multi-million dollar budget, it is essential we do things right.
UCO is a servant to the 309 Village associations, not boss. It needs to be a thoroughly honest servant and a competent servant, but also a servant
that knows its bounds. Well-meaning people need to take care to not “play attorney.”
Insurance is an association’s biggest single expense. The cost of insurance far exceeds what is paid to our management companies. We need
something more than a “one trick pony,” as persuasive and able as he or she may be, controlling our overall insurance operation. We need the
entire Committee to understand it thoroughly, be able to explain the details of it to others, and be able to act as a check on one another. Too much
is at stake to not have this. UCO needs to adhere to the strict contractual requirement of the Bi-lateral Agreement-that is, to simply negotiate the
policies. UCO’s name should not be anywhere on an association’s insurance policies. UCO should not be involved in any way with arranging
for repairs or remediation contractors. The individual associations should file their claims, find and select their own contractors, and call in a
public adjuster if needed. The associations must deal directly with our Insurance Agent or Insurance Company, as required. We must learn the
names and telephone numbers of our agents working in the Plastridge Agency, or perhaps in another agency that might be more attuned to our
needs in CV. Finally, in accordance with Florida Statute FS-718, each association must have a copy of each of their insurance policies as a part
of the association records — not merely the declarations pages, but rather, the entire set of policies. These should be obtained, not from UCO, but
directly from the insurance agent(s) involved or the insurance companies — in the same way you get your automobile or homeowner’s policy.
No association should have to come to UCO to get its association policies. That some associations have done this and then been stalled and put
off is intolerable.
Blowing the whistle. On our Century Village Website (http://century-village-wpb.blogspot.com/) that some of you read, I and others have blown
the whistle on numerous occasions about questionable and improper Village goings-on. As president, I’ll be in a much better position to protect
your interests. Your Constitutional rights of free speech must be upheld without censorship. As your UCO president, I will serve you faithfully
and well — just as I served my country when I worked for the U.S. government for over 30 years, and in the United States Army for three years.

I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE YOUR VOTE
