Write a Letter to the Trustees!
free to cut and paste the following text in your own letter
to the Radburn Trustees demanding that they NOT waste our
money by fighting New Jersey state law that requires free
elections and open meetings in Radburn and all other communities
like ours! Your letter to the Trustees NOW could save Radburn
many thousands of dollars, and will acelerate democratic reform
in Radburn. Please feel free to draw on the ideas suggested
below, but your letters will be more even more effective if
you individualize them by adding your own thoughts.The Association
will meet with state officials in the next few weeks. Let
the Trustees know your opinion NOW, before they make a decision
that could lead to expensive litigation! See
the Trustees' addresses.
Dear [Trustee Name]:
As a Radburn resident, do not wish Radburn funds to be used
litigating against the New Jersey state government in an attempt
to delay granting the Radburn community our rights under New
Jersey's Planned Real Estate Development Full Disclosure Act
It is the duty of the Radburn Association to show respect
for the law as it has been explained to us by those New Jersey
state officials whose job it is to enforce PREDFA. Radburn's
money should be spent on Radburn's pools, parks, playgrounds,
and all the other features of Radburn that directly enhance
the life of our community. It should not be spent on fruitless
and needless litigation against the state government. Allowing
the Radburn community to enjoy our legal rights under PREDFA
would have no negative impact on our community. It would change
nothing about Radburn except to make Radburn self-governing.
I am also concerned that, once potential buyers of Radburn
homes become aware that a significant portion of the Radburn
assessment is being spent litigating with Trenton, and not
being spent on polls, parks, and playgrounds, people will
be less interested in buying homes here, and our property
values will be harmed.
Last but not least, any attempt by the Radburn Trustees
to spend Radburn's funds attempting to delay self-government
in Radburn will inevitably lead to further legal actions being
taken to limit such spending. There is no point in taking
a step that must inevitably escalate this issue into a crisis.
All that the Trustees need do is bring Radburn into compliance
with the law and this matter will be resolved without further
stress being placed on our community.
to the Board Members certified mail (and then mail or hand-deliver
a copy to Trustee June Meyerson at 15 Ballard Place) to let
them know you do not want them to litigate the state of NJ
regarding the PREDFA statute (Planned Real Estate Development
Full Disclosure Act).
