MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
I want to begin by expressing my thanks to all of you homeowners who voted in the latest Board of Directors election. It is one of the most important acts you can perform, as your Board makes decisions that aﬀect every resident of Sun City Aliante.
As you know, it is expected that our assessments will go up by $30/quarter ($10/month). This increase is due primarily to inﬂation which is causing us to spend more money than previously spent on the same service. We see this daily in the costs of goods and services for our family budget and this translates as well to running a large association.
In addition, as Sun City Aliante ages, replacement costs for large items becomes necessary such as A/C, exercise equipment, rooﬁng, etc. which have high price tags.
To keep us as a ﬁscally sound HOA, we are putting more money into our Reserve Budget than the current ﬁscal year to accomplish the replacement of aging items. Although any increase in assessments is not pleasurable, I think an increase of 14% is not too much in light of how much the cost of everything else is going up in comparison.
June is a busy commemorative month. We remember the WWII D-Day anniversary, Flag day, U.S. Army birthday, Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness Month, the celebration of the end of slavery, and the oﬃcial beginning of summer
Stay well and enjoy all we have to be thankful for.
Warren M. Geller President, Sun City Aliante Board of Directors

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
JUNE – STATE OF THE INDUSTRY IN 2023
Recently, the Nevada Chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI) was honored to have Dawn M. Bauman, Sr Vice President of Government Aﬀairs for Community Associations Institute (CAI) National, speak at the monthly meeting in Las Vegas. Her presentation was titled “State of the Industry,” regarding Common Interest Communities (CIC)/ Homeowners Associations (HOA) industry Her presentation highlighted 6 areas of focus:
Nationwide 29% of the U.S. population or 72.4 million people live in a
ry and 8,000 – 9,000 community association management companies.
MENTAL HEALTH & THREATS OF VIOLENCE
The focus on mental health and violence is not limited to just our own communities. Reports of violent acts have been reported across the country A survey of CAI members conducted in early 2023 indicates 45% of respondents are greatly concerned or moderately concerned about their safety This is a signiﬁcant increase from a similar survey conducted in 2019 which indicated 29% of respondents were greatly concerned or moderately concerned. As concerns about personal safety grow, we all need to be prepared to identify personal safety measures that we can take.
COMMON ELEMENTS SAFETY
After the collapse of the Champlain Towers South condominium in Florida, associations are focusing more on safety of common elements of a HOA. Reserve Studies are being scrutinized to ensure funds are available for needed maintenance and repairs to avoid unsafe conditions.
In Nevada, professionally compiled Reserve Studies and liability insurance are required by state statute (NRS116). A reserve study identiﬁes the adequacy of funds to suﬃciently maintain common elements without using funds from the operating account and without special assessments. An association's budget MUST include a budget for the reserves. The funds in a reserve account may not be used for operating expenses. Nevada law also requires a reserve study to be conducted at least every 5 years with annual adjustments to the funding plan for required reserves. As common elements and buildings age, the Reserve Study becomes more important to ensure the safety of all common elements.
In a recent survey conducted by CAI, nearly 90% of all community associations reported increases in expenses, primarily in landscape services, management services and daily operational expenses, including utilities. These increases will lead to increases in budgets which will primarily be covered by increased assessments.

This year we had three open positions on the Board of Directors to be ﬁlled by the election process By the end of business day, on Monday, February 6, 2023, ﬁve qualiﬁed candidates had completed and submitted the Candidate Interest Forms and Disclosure Statements and formally entered the race. They were incumbents Warren Geller, Nancy Prince and Mark Towers as well as newcomers Joe Caggiano
and Larry Cory
This set the election process in motion putting your Sun City Aliante Election Committee to work. Articles referring to the election would be found in multiple issues of The Breeze leading up to the election as well as numerous eBlasts to inform residents.
A very successful Candidate's Forum, attended by over 60 interested residents, was held on March 11, 2023. At this time, candidates introduced themselves and presented their qualiﬁcations. Moderator Mr Steve Vitale asked the candidates pertinent questions to help residents understand the candidate's positions.
The oﬃcial ballots were mailed to all qualiﬁed residential households by the end of March, a n e w b a l l o t b o x w a s p u r c h a s e d , a n d t h e completed ballots were either hand delivered or by USPS by the May 10, 2023 deadline.
And then it was May 10. Election Day had ﬁnally arrived and the Election Committee was well prepared. With the help of 25 veteran election residents, the process ran ﬂawlessly Early that afternoon the Annual Meeting was r e c o n v e n e d , t h e e l e c t i o n r e s u l t s w e r e announced and the three incumbents, Warren Geller, Nancy Prince and Mark Towers, were re-elected and oﬃcially seated on the Board.
I wanted to share with you the oﬃcial results of the 2023 Board of Directors Election. The total number of ballots received was 646 with 36 ballot being invalid because they were not properly ﬁ lled out or they could not be identiﬁed. The ﬁnal vote count was Nancy Prince – 527; Warren Geller – 421; Mark Towers – 376; Joe Caggiano – 309; and Larry Cory - 124.
It is often said, “It takes a village.” It could not
have been a success without the help of the 25 resident volunteers, too numerous to thank individually in this article, but you know who you are. My Election Committee, consisting of its able secretary Chris Wickliﬀ and Linda E g g e , K a y D r e w l o , S y l v i e C o u r t e m a r s h , Renee Snodgrass and Mady Shapiro were indispensable. They made my job so much easier. A hardy thank you to our General Manager, Damian Carrasco, and his able a s s i s t a n t , N e l e n i e H e r n a n d e z , f o r t h e i r invaluable input. And last but certainly not least to our staﬀ Debbie Kent, Lifestyle D i r e c t o r, f o r t h e g r e a t b r e a k f a s t , Tr i s h Williamson, The Breeze Editor/Publisher for getting the word out, Facilities Manager, Juan Macias, and his staﬀ for all their work in setting up the room and Oﬃce Manager, Lori Daniels, who never said no to my numerous requests.

THANK YOU TO THE ELECTION COMMITTEE FOR A JOB WELL DONE
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the Election Committee for t h e i r w o r k o n a m y r i a d o f t a s k s t h a t culminated in the election of our new Board of Directors (BOD) for 2023-2024.
The Election Committee is responsible for overseeing the Board of Directors Election process, including the counting of the ballots and the certiﬁcation of election r e s u l t s A s p e c i a l t h a n k y o u t o t h e f o l l o w i n g C o m m i t t e e m e m b e r s : Chairperson, Larry Rothstein; Secretary, Chris Wickliﬀ; Linda Egge; Kay Drewlo; Sylvie Courtemarsh; Renee Snodgrass; and Mady Shapiro.
The election process began with the publication of a Candidate Interest Form and Disclosure Statement as inserts in the January 2023 issue of The Breeze. We informed interested residents the forms must be completed and submitted to the Front Desk no later than 5 p.m. on Monday, February 6, 2023.
This year we had three open positions on the Board of Directors for twoyear terms to be ﬁlled. As of the 5 p.m. deadline, ﬁve (5) qualiﬁed candidates had submitted Candidate Interest Forms and Disclosure Statements to the Front Desk and entered the race for election to the 2023 Board of Directors.
The candidates were incumbents Warren Geller, Nancy Prince and Mark Towers and residents, Joe Caggiano and Larry Cory As we received more qualiﬁed entrants than open Board positions, we needed to have a formal election.
This set the Election process in motion, and the Election Committee swung into action. The Committee's ﬁrst order of business was to ensure the candidate bios and photographs were as widely disseminated as possible.
To that end, the Committee placed a poster with photos of the candidates and their bios in a prominent location in the Community Center The Chairperson, Larry Rothstein, also ensured that all the pertinent information related to the election and the candidate bios and photographs were published in The Breeze and eBlast and posted on the Sun City Aliante website.
All of the candidates were on hand for an informative Candidate Forum hosted by the Election Committee on March 11. The event was well received by residents who had an opportunity to learn more about each candidate during the question and answer discussion led by the Forum Moderator, Mr Steve Vitali. Following the Forum, residents enjoyed a light lunch.
The Election Committee also arranged to have a video of the Candidate Forum, created and edited by Richard Lawhead, posted on the Sun City Aliante website for interested residents who were not able to attend to view the entire event online.
The next step was mailing oﬃcial ballots to all qualiﬁed homeowners in late March. Completed ballots were submitted by USPS or hand-delivered to the new ballot box in the Community Center by the deadline of Wednesday, May 10, 2023 at 8 a.m.
Election Day ﬁnally arrived. The Annual Meeting of the Sun City Aliante Homeowners Association was convened on Wednesday, May 10 at 8 a.m. and the meeting was recessed to count the ballots. The Election Committee's important task was to count a total of 646 ballots. With the help of their team of 25 volunteers, the vote counting process ran smoothly
The Election Chairperson reported the ﬁnal election results during the BOD meeting. The three incumbents, Warren Geller, Nancy Prince and Mark Towers, were re-elected and oﬃcially seated on the Board. (Please see the Election Committee article on page 8 of this issue of The Breeze for a detailed tally of the vote.)
After the BOD meeting, the new Board of Directors held an Organizational Meeting among themselves to determine the Board positions. The new Board voted to keep all members in their current positions: Warren Geller, President; Mark Smith, Vice President; Sonja Bankston-Cullen, Secretary; Nancy Prince, Treasurer; and Directors, Mark Towers, Debbie Matthews and Ed Ernest.
I want to emphasize how much we appreciate the work of the Election Committee, led by Election Chair, Larry Rothstein, in helping us maintain the highest standards possible in the election of our Board of Directors, the volunteer leaders of this amazing community We commend the Election Committee for executing a ﬂawless 2023 election from start to ﬁnish.
PLEASE JOIN US… I want to personally invite you to attend our exciting CAI Award Celebration on Thursday, June 15 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Vista Room of the Community Center.
We are proud of winning the Outstanding Southern Nevada Large Association of Year Award for 2022, and we want to celebrate with an event for the entire community This is the fourth time in the past ﬁve years that the Community Associations Institute (CAI) has presented this signiﬁcant award to Sun City Aliante. I believe we received this award because of the dedication of our Board of Directors, Team of Staﬀ, and Volunteer Residents who work hard every day to enhance the value of every property and lifestyle of every resident in our community
I hope to see you on June 15.

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR COUNCILMAN WARD 4 RICHARD CHERCHIO
The month of June brings with it many celebrations: graduations, weddings, proms, fun vacations, and even a nod to dear ole Dad on Father's Day, June 18. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to check out some interesting topics in our June seminar lineup.
For example, you may not realize that herds of Ice Age Columbian mammoths, lions, camelops, saber tooth cats, bison, llamas, horses, massive sloths and dire wolves once roamed the area known as Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument located RIGHT BEHIND Sun City Aliante. Join Sandy Croteau of the Protectors of Tule Springs on June 13 and learn more about this historic National Monument and how you can get involved.
Join Kelley Carr of Lumina Las Vegas on June 16 for an informative presentation, approved by UNR Medical School. Get all the facts you need to understand dementia and learn how to live with it. On June 21, join us for a presentation discussing free services for the visually impaired or blind. Learn there are diﬀerent levels of vision loss, and you do not have to be totally blind to be eligible for free services.
Should I enroll in Medicare when I turn age 65? This is one of the most common questions people ask. Medicare is confusing to say the least. When you turn 65, if you are still employed, there are other considerations. Andrea and Brandon Scott will give you all the answers you need on June 22.

As I have several college and high school graduates in my life right now, I wanted to share a few GRADUATION FUN FACTS with you.
• Tossing the graduation hat is a tradition signaling the end of the ceremonies and the ﬂight of graduates to whatever awaits them.
• Diplomas were originally made of sheepskin. The words were in ink on paper-thin sheepskin, allowed to dry, then rolled up and tied in a ribbon. Later, they were printed on parchment when printing techniques improved. They ditched the ribbons when graduates complained that curled up diplomas were diﬃcult to frame.
• “Pomp and Circumstance” was originally composed in 1901 by Sir Edward Elgar By 1918, many prominent colleges adapted it as their oﬃcial graduation accompaniment.
• The commencement cap is called a mortarboard because of its resemblance to a masonry tool of the same name. The tassel was added in the 19th century Protocol requires the tassel to be worn on the right side until a candidate graduates.
Enjoy the month of June and its celebrations.
I always welcome your comments and suggestions. If you have any questions, please call or text me at 702-429-1623 or email email@example.com.

Summer has ﬁnally arrived and I want to remind you to keep your dogs and pets safe by following our Ordinance No. 3053, which requires animals to be properly sheltered and cared for while being kept outdoors. This summer is going to be a hot one; so, make sure to keep your furry friends in mind!
I am honored to share that once again, Sun City Aliante has been named the Southern Nevada Outstanding Large Association for 2022! This is the 4th time that this award has been won in the past 5 years, which creates a pretty good track record in my book. This year, the competition included Red Rock Homeowner's Association, Sun City Anthem Community Association and Canyon Gate Master Association which are all very steep competition. Congratulations to everyone on the Sun City Aliante team, and congratulations to you, the residents!
Moving forward, I wanted to share a story that is dear to me. Joey Penney, a local fourth grader in the City of North Las Vegas wrote to me with some concerns he had about our city's water conservation eﬀorts. In his letter, he expressed some very thoughtful concerns he had about what our city is doing to help combat the situation of water shortages. I was so impressed that someone so young would take the initiative to reach out to his local government representative; so, I knew I needed to meet him in person and help educate him on what the city is currently doing for water conservation.
I presented Joey with a Good Citizen Award at his school, and visited his class to say how proud I was of Joey for caring about the environment and using his voice to make a diﬀerence. I shared with his class all that the city is doing and encouraged all of them to learn more about ways they can use their voices to make a diﬀerence, even if it isn't for water conservation. I am so proud to have Joey Penney in my ward and look forward to seeing what the future holds for him as he grows up.
Finally, I want to encourage all of you to keep an eye on all of the fun summer events we have planned for you, your family and friends in the City of North Las Vegas. From movie nights to indoor classes to pool parties, we know you'll ﬁnd something just right for you and your loved ones to get together and have fun.
I hope all our Mothers had a well-deserved Mother's Day on May 14, as well as respectfully celebrated Armed Forces day on May 20, and Memorial Day on May 29 in remembrance of all our Veterans who make all we have today possible.
In closing, Please remember Flag day on June 14th, which just happens to be my daughter's birthday too:), and I wish all my fellow Dads on June 18 the best Father's Day possible!
Thank you for all you do, and for supporting the City of North Las Vegas today and every day.
Yours in service,
Richard Cherchio Ward 4 Councilman

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH MONTHLY BULLETIN:
North Las Vegas is said to have one of the lowest crime rates in Las Vegas, especially our ward, Ward 4. With that said, we still need to be proactive in the security of our home and surroundings. The best thing for your home security is to get to know your neighbors. Take a walk or a drive and see what cars or trucks normally park on your street. When you leave your home, always look around to see if there is a vehicle you don't recognize, with someone sitting in the car or just driving slowly It could be someone watching you leave your house. It never hurts to drive around the block to make sure that the car isn't now stopped in front of your house. It's just better to be safe than sorry and the point is to watch for something that seems out of place.
All residents are welcome to join us at our next monthly Neighborhood Watch meeting which will be held on June 14 at 4pm in the Community Center.
For information regarding the Sun City Aliante Neighborhood Watch p r o g r a m , c o n t a c t o u r C o o r d i n a t o r , J i m B l o s s e y a t email@example.com or 775-530-5119.

EXCITING THINGS HAPPENING IN NLV
S u n C i t y A l i a n t e R e s i d e n t Eloise Turney recently joined the City of North Las Vegas Mayor Pamela Goynes-Brown and the City Council for a preview of all the exciting things taking shape in North Las Vegas!
M a y o r G o y n e s - B r o w n , a native of North Las Vegas and a resident for the past 60 years, delivered the 2023 State of the City address on March 23, 2023, at Aliante Resort, showcasing the City of North Las Vegas' historic achievements, unprecedented progress and innovative momentum.
During her address Mayor Goynes-Brown noted, her father, Theron Goynes, was the ﬁrst Black man on the North Las Vegas City Council, a position he held for 20 years. “My father ran for Mayor of North Las Vegas in 1997 and lost the election. It took another 15 years before another African-American tried for the Mayor's seat,” she said. “Today, I stand here proudly and humbly to say that history has been made!”
In outlining her goals, she said, “My focus as Mayor will be on the people of this City, ensuring they have a great quality of life with equal opportunities for success, good schools, a solid support system, top-notch parks and safe neighborhoods.”
Mayor Goynes-Brown also highlighted the City's ﬁnancial stability and stunning gains in economic development and job creation, with two of every three Southern Nevada companies incentivized by the state choosing to locate in North Las Vegas. The City's attractiveness to new industries has resulted in:
• 63,533 new jobs with an average hourly wage of $33.31
• $438 million dollars of capital investment
• $36 billion dollars in economic impact
• $5 billion healthcare campus in the City's Job Creation Zone
• Redevelopment of 19 acres in downtown Lake Mead/Las Vegas Boulevard corridor
The State of the City address also featured initiatives focused on improving the quality of life for the residents of the City of North Las Vegas. Among the quality-of-life initiatives highlighted were:
• Investment in new parks and revitalization of mature parks
• Programming to increase attendance and family engagement at public schools
• Cultivation of Restaurant Row, with 24 new dining options in the past three years
• I n c r e a s e d h o u s i n g s t o c k a n d p o l i c i e s d e s i g n e d t o k e e p homeownership attainable and aﬀordable
• New police and ﬁre stations, increased public safety through diverse recruiting and robust community policing
• Dedicated Veterans Resource Center and much more.
Eloise shared these comments about the State of City 2023. “I was energized by the wonderful turnout; some 700 people attend the Mayor's State of the City address and luncheon. I was excited about all the new projects she discussed including new Fortune 500 companies, new roads and community improvements. I left with the feeling that I am very proud to be a North Las Vegas resident,” said Eloise Turney
