Attached on the right is a Facebook post made by Mr. Steve Hord. Mr. Hord, among other things, is the Vice President of the Bay Point West Board of Directors. In that role he represents the owners within Bay Point West who trust he will work and act to the betterment of that organization and the community as a whole. Read the Facebook post from Mr. Hord. The purpose behind the posting is unclear, appears to be random, and is obviously crude and very uncomplimentary. I hope that’s not the standard for a Vice President of a large community board.
What is also interesting is that Mr. Hord is seeking the support of BPCA to help fine and punish the Bay Point West homeowners who put up 6 ft. fences along the Meadows golf course since Hurricane Michael. The two BPCA BOD officers Mr. Hord reached out to for support with his initiative are William Wanner and Carl Selph, the same two individuals he mocks in his Facebook post. At Steve’s request, a meeting to discuss his proposal to fine and lien BPW homeowners is set for Friday with the BPCA attorney present.
On Monday, BPCA received a letter from Attorney Brian Hess regarding the 6 foot fence issue in Bay Point West. Apparently several BPW homeowners have hired Mr. Hess to fight Mr. Hord’s intentions to fine them and lien their property. Mr. Hess is asking the support of the BPCA BOD to counter the efforts of Mr. Hord and the BPW board. Now there is a twist, as Mr. Hess was formerly a legal advisor to Walt Rankin and the BPW board.
So here we are: Mr. Hord sent out a demeaning post, embarrassing himself and his position within the community. He is trying to solicit help from the BPCA BOD (in particular the people he intentionally demeans in his Facebook post) to issue fines and liens on BPW homeowners, while the same homeowners of BPW that he seeks to fine and lien their property seek legal help to prevent Mr. Hord from fining them and placing liens on their property.
You have to ask if Mr. Hord should be on the BPW board, or any Board at all? His actions certainly bring that question into focus.
