Correction to video – the WHOA does not operate under Section 720

By: Sharon Aron Baron

A resident was video taping the tumultuous WHOA meeting in May, thanks to the foresight of Carolyn Chin who didn’t tape the whole thing but was able to record a few parts of it.

As you may have read, I was served with a cease and desist notice telling me that I must take down the site immediately…that I am tarnishing the distinctive quality of the association’s trade name and injuring its reputation.

Since that time, I found out that this wasn’t the actions of our WHOA board as a whole, but of one person in particular: Our WHOA President.

Our WHOA President, who mistakenly believed our attorney at Becker & Poliakoff was on retainer and asked him to write this letter, didn’t know that each time she contacts our attorney for legal work, it costs you and I money.

Nevertheless,  the videos taken with a cellphone camera only shows some portions of the meeting.  That’s all that were recorded.

Its important to watch and remember how residents were not allowed to speak at this meeting.   On other meetings, residents have been allowed to speak.

  1. Sharon,Sharon,Sharon…to think I defended you at this meeting,demanded to allow to have Adam speak for you,received a warm thank you from your husband after the meeting and here we are 3 years later and you are still blaming me for your having been removed from the website.As you recall,if you choose to,Jack Talabisco and Bill Pressman were the people that posed the motion to have you removed.And although you would like to beleive I had that kind of power,lol,you know that it was all based on you not agreeing to running your postings for the Official WOODLANDS website through the Board & Bill. And not based on my issues but others that existed before me.I seem to remember several weeks ago outside City hall when you wanted to make peace and we joked about our”Love Hate” relationship,as you described it.And we hugged and moved on…….And here we are, you still dredging up old stuff about me. But that’s ok.Infuriated? No dear. Disappointed…wondering why I defended you if I am such a horrible person……

    Dear Alan, Just was setting the record straight…even if it that was the situation that brought us to the table where Bill removed me. Unfortunately, you were the driving force behind it, but please understand I’m not upset anymore, I honestly, wanted to clarify what was being said at the meeting. I believe we have both moved on you and I. And I appreciate you standing behind this site last month. Thank you.

  2. Thank you Sharon.And if I did have any influence in that decision please accept my apolgies to you and the Community.

  3. After receiving the minutes, or should I call them micro-seconds, from last month’s meeting, I had to chuckle at whoever takes the minutes and then publishes them. They are a joke, but not in the funny way. The minutes are so vague and talk about picking and choosing, the true essence of the meeting in May is clearly missing. Not only am I not mentioned once about all the points that I brought up and the most important one about Patti not consulting the rest of the board when she had the legal letter sent to Sharon, but the motion carreid out by us board members to allow Sharon and Adam to speak. This further proves to me why we need this website even more, because when minutes (mico-seconds) are being printed like the ones from the May meeting, they are not worth the paper they are printed on. Shame on the person who wrote the minutes, why did you skim over all the important facts that were discussed? Are you afraid to print the truth?
