Opportunity to Vote Electronically and by Telephone

The Annual Meeting of the Members of
Savannah Lakes Village POA, Inc. (SLVPOA)
will be held at 6 p.m. November 16, 2017 at the Recreation Center.

There will be three Board of Directors’ positions seated at this meeting with each having
a three-year term.

The SLV Nominating Committee for the 2017 Board of Directors election has determined that the five candidates that submitted
applications for the three vacating positions on the SLV Board of Directors in November are qualified with the necessary
experience and their names will appear on the ballot:
Charles H. (Chuck) Cook • Russell (Russ) Dickinson • William (Bill) Hartz • Pete Nico • Ray Tarnosky

In reviewing these applicants, the Nominating Committee considered
the following qualification criteria:

• An indicated interest by the applicant in serving the best interest of all SLVPOA Members regardless of personal interests
or agenda.

• Previous experience, training, etc. that relate to Board duties or prior service through committee work, volunteer efforts,
and similar contributions.

• A stated commitment by the applicant to devote the necessary time required to serve the duties as a member of the Board.
• An understanding and acceptance by the applicant of the responsibilities and authorities of the Board, the SLVPOA

management, and the various committees of the SLVPOA.
The SLV Election Committee is pleased to offer eligible voters the opportunity again this year to vote electronically or by
telephone. More information on the voting process will be communicated to all eligible voters prior to the voting period that

begins on October 9, 2017.

Candidate Bios

We encourage you to learn all you can about the five BOD candidates before casting your vote.
Therefore, the following is a brief bio, candidacy statement and conflict of interest disclosure

information provided by each candidate.

Charles H. (Chuck) Cook

Chuck was elected to the SLV Board of Directors in 2011 and has served as corporate secretary and
liaison to the Public Affairs Committee (PAC) for the past six years. He initiated the creation of the
PAC in 2011 and, at the board’s request, served as its first chair.

As a long-term public employee with the U.S. Department of Agriculture from 1970 to 2003,
Chuck has a special interest in governmental and public affairs, and has taken the lead in a number
of projects on behalf of SLV. These include completion of a thorough study of possible incorporation
of the village as a municipality; development of an annual property tax calculator for all home and lot
owners; issuance of registration and voting information preceding the 2012, 2014 and 2016 general
elections; identification of legal issues that are creating significant delays in the sale of properties from
the county’s Forfeited Land Commission, including the drafting of remedial legislation that was passed
by both houses of the state legislature and signed by the Governor during its 2014 session; preparation of board statements for the
public hearings before the county council on proposed budget and fee ordinances; and issuance of regular messages to property
owners and the board on the status of various public issues, and how they may affect village residents.

Candidate Bios

In addition, Chuck covers county school board meetings for the McCormick Messenger and has written more than 275 articles,
editorials and book reviews for the paper since 2006.

His professional and managerial work with USDA provided Chuck with an eclectic background that fully utilized his BA in
economics and graduate work in public administration. As Deputy Administrator for Management with the Office of International
Cooperation and Development, Chuck was responsible for all agency administrative activities. As Director of the joint USDA/
Department of the Interior Agriculture and Water Project in Saudi Arabia, Chuck was responsible for a variety of agricultural
research, and soil and water projects funded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Water. He also directed USDA staffs responsible
for planning and evaluation, information management, and labor-management relations.

Chuck and his wife, Ellen, have been SLV property owners since 1991 and residents since 2004. He is an avid golfer, although
his playing time and handicap have moved in opposite directions since his election to the board. He is a former SLV MGA
champion, and club and senior club champion at Patuxent Greens Country Club in Laurel, Maryland, where he also served as the
club’s first elected Chair of the Board of Governors.
• Statement of Candidacy: “I seek reelection to the board to continue and complete those projects and activities that are essential
to the growth and financial viability of SLV. This includes bringing a new developer to the village who will purchase the peninsula
properties and the 1950 properties in the county’s Forfeited Land Commission, and approval of realistic budgets and fees that will
meet our financial needs, and allow us to retain and attract new residents.”

Russell (Russ) Dickinson

Russ was born and raised in Canada. He graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1975 with a
Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering. Following graduation, he hired into Dow Canada as a process control
engineer and later as the corporate data center manager. Transferring in 1992 to The Dow Chemical
Company in Midland, Michigan where he led teams in developing business information technology
strategy for manufacturing operations across many business lines. Russ retired in 2009 after 34 years to
establish his own consulting business providing support for design of manufacturing operations systems
in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for Kellogg Brown and Root.

Russ was first elected to the SLV Board in 2014. Before that he served on the Strategic Planning
Committee in different capacities and is currently the Board’s liaison to that committee. He has also served on the Golf Committee
and was the Chairperson of the Ad Hoc Committee for Governing Documents, the committee responsible for updates to our By-
Laws and Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions.

Russ and Chris Dickinson have been married for 46 years with a son in Seattle and a daughter in Anchorage. They bought
Savannah Lakes Village property in 2006 and became permanent residents in 2011. His passion is boating, primarily on The Great
Lakes, whenever he can. He also pursues Bridge and golf.

His career in a large multi-national, exposure to a variety of cultures and breadth of business involvement, have afforded him
the opportunity to develop excellent people, leadership and business systems skills that would be an asset and compliment to SLV’s
leadership team.
• Statement of Candidacy: “Chris and I see SLV as a great place to live with potential for a very bright and prosperous future.
SLV’s success depends on growth but we must do so while maintaining the character and sense of community that we have all
come to appreciate. With my experience on the Board and various committees I have a very good understanding of the issues
and challenges SLV faces as well as the concerns and needs of our members. My career in business systems development for a
large multi-national has provided me with a breadth of business, technical, people and leadership skills. I know how to work with
people from many disciplines and persuasions. I want to continue serving as one of your SLV Board of Directors to continue in
shaping SLV’s future and help ensure that we become the premier adult community in the Southeast. I believe I have the breadth
and depth of skills, and a demonstrated commitment to help make that happen. I am committed to a constructive and purposeful
working relationship between the board, our POA leadership and SLV members. I believe in transparency, decisions based on
data, and active engagement with all our members. I know I have the experience, the skills and the commitment to see Savannah
Lakes Village become what it can be.”

William (Bill) Hartz

Bill grew up in South Jersey and then moved with his family in his sophomore year of high school to
Pittsburgh – 1973. That’s right, just before the Steelers went on a Super Bowl run of 4 titles in 6 years.
Helped make that adjustment easy! After graduating with a degree in Math from Allegheny College,
Bill worked his way through various types of insurance mediums, finally setting out on his own in 1999
forming an employee benefits consulting firm. Several of his colleagues joined Bill, culminating in a sale
of this start-up to a regional bank and its’ benefits division. A few years later Bill and 3 other teammates
acquired their firm back and built a large regional consulting firm. Fast forward to today, after the
subsequent sale to a larger regional bank. Bill is the Senior Vice President and Practice Leader of the
benefits division and manages the combined consulting team of 7 offices across PA, Upstate NY, and CT with $18MM in revenue,
2,200 clients and 70 teammates. While Bill travels between Pittsburgh and SLV, he has empowered several of his long-standing
and senior teammates to take over the governance role enabling Bill to enjoy the south more!
Bill and Susie (and their dog Stella of course!) were not the first of their family to move south. They followed Susie’s sister -
Carol Wieboldt (& Bob), and their eldest daughter Kimmy (living in Atlanta with Rob and our 2 granddaughters). Julie, their
youngest, had a brief stint in Atlanta but now resides in Denver. They encouraged both of their mothers to join them here –
Brandon Wilde and Wesley Commons, and we are now firmly entrenched in the south.
Bill and Susie purchased property in SLV in 1998 but didn’t build until 2007. Susie has firmly integrated herself into the
community while Bill enjoys his increasing time at home. Bill has a wide range of activities including maintaining a garden plot
(1st year harvest went well!), bike riding, cooking, golfing, boating, wine club, singing, hiking and sitting on the back deck
watching golfers navigate #2 at Monticello. Of course, they do love to travel too, hence the RV!
• Statement of Candidacy: “I am a candidate for the Board of Directors because I believe we are at a critical time in crafting
our future development. I bring a considerable amount of experience in the business world that was created and sustained on
building a fiscally responsible and viable operation, providing clear and concise direction through effective management and
communication, engaging and supporting teammates by considering alternate views and delegating roles and responsibility, and
defining success through accountability and satisfaction of our clients and teammates. I bring a fresh look to our community as I
haven’t had the pleasure of engaging in past decisions. We need to continue to expand the opportunities for everyone in the Village
– the newbies (Susie and me), the youngsters (Bob and Carol), and the youngest-at-heart (our pioneers).”

852-4722 are thinking in a broader sense about all the people of God who have died. For
me, Revelation 7:9-10 paints this vivid picture, “9 After this I looked, and there
was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, from all tribes
and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. 10 They cried out in a loud
voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne, and to
the Lamb!”
The final use of saint is even more expansive in its scope and is used over sixty
times in the New Testament. It refers to all believers as saints. Paul greets the
church in Roman by saying, “To all God’s beloved in Rome, who are called to be
saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Over and over again the word saint in the New Testament does not mean a “super
Christian,” but a committed Christian.
I think this is good news for all who strive to live faithfully, but sometimes fall
short. God’s holy KISS is this, “Keep It Simple Saints.” God’s love is sufficient
for you, share that love.•

MY NAME IS Breaker and I am a 53 pound lap dog. I love to love and with a birthday of 1/9/16
I have lots of years ahead for snuggling and sloppy kisses. I am a high energy doggie and
would make the perfect companion should you get a hankering to take up jogging. And if
you want to pack a few treats for our run even better!

I am neutered, have all my shots and have a microchip just in case we get separated. I am
told I am pretty smart and look forward to learning new tricks and games. All I need is the
right teacher to love and learn with!


THEY CALL ME “Kakes” as in “babykakes” – probably because I am the sweetest little kitty
you’d ever want to call your own. To be honest, I guess I am a bit shy but once we are properly
introduced let the petting and purring begin! I am still just a youngster with a birthday of
5/8/17 but I am already neutered (that was NOT fun!) and up to date with my shots. I love to
play and would be very happy to keep another kitty company and share a few adventures.
But if you want to keep me all to yourself we can go cutting up just the two of us. If you take
me home now, we can plan the holidays together!•

Please leave a message at 864-391-2349 or email us at if you are interested in learning more about our available dogs and cats.
