Thank you to all who voted in the 2017 Kiawah Island Community Association Election. You have elected Cathy Pumphrey and Ben Cheatham to three year terms on the KICA Board of Directors. They will replace Marilyn Olson and John Connolly, whose terms end at the conclusion of tomorrow’s annual meeting (Friday, March 3).
The results of the election are as follows:
Cathy Pumphrey: 40.5%
Ben Cheatham: 39.9%
Chris Dahlstrom (write-in): 17.86%
49 Others (write-in): 1.71%
The proposed covenant change to allow KICA additional authority regarding the enforcement of covenants was supported with nearly 80% of voters approving the recommendation, well over the 75% majority needed to pass. However, a covenant change has a larger quorum requirement than a director election. Unfortunately only 56.3% quorum was reached and 60% was needed to pass the amendment.
Voting closed on Friday, Feb. 24 at 5 p.m. and was tabulated by Vote-Now.com. View a recording and materials from Friday’s annual meeting on this page after Tuesday, March 7.
