The (Former) Faces of Jade Winds

While employed by First Service Residential, Property Manager Donna Mantin, CAM 34445 and her security guard Jan Capote, (her minion and former MCORPS Security employee) denied unit owners access to attend committee meetings in violation of Florida Statute 718, The Condominium Act.

Revital Sharony is also the wife of Jade Winds Association former President Santiago Perez, seated on back table below.  

They now live in Boca Raton in a house valued at approximately $634,000 while Jade Winds is left in shambles under their control.    
Jesse Bergeman, former Treasurer of Jade Winds,(brown sweater) stands there and does nothing while Revital Sharony spits her venomous words.  

Jesse Bergeman has also recently resigned from the Board and he recently moved out of his unit here at the Jade Winds.    

The rest of the Board seated at the table DO NOTHING except watch.   

Santiago Perez, former President of Jade Winds (bald head, striped shirt) is a man who lies and does not keep his word.   In my opinion, his smirk says it all.  
Also in this pictures is Donna Mantin, CAM 34445 (black top, red hair conducting improper elections which were successfully challenged in Arbitration.)

It appears that she takes great pleasure in seeing others suffer for no good reason.

After years of systemic mismanagement, exploitation, and abuses Jade Winds has finally broken free.  

Donna Mantin, CAM34445 (who, surprisingly, NOW has a current license--it was just recently delinquent) has been FIRED from the Jade Winds and is considered a persona non grata! 

**FACT CHECK:  Donna Mantin was NOT arrested last week on the Jade Winds property. Donna Mantin was leaving the office with Association correspondence (mail) and the police seized and returned those items back to the office.  She was not arrested and was free to go, period.      

Santiago Perez, who was the President of the Board, resigned.

Jesse Bergeman, who was Treasurer of the Board, resigned.

There were some other Directors, who also resigned previously, but the community was never informed of such.    

With that said, the remaining Board members and unit owners are united and determined to maintain community control and act in the best interest of this Association

Jade Winds will conduct business. Jade Winds will comply with the law and it's obligations.  Jade Winds will move forward. 

The Board of Directors held an emergency meeting on Thursday, 30 October 2014 to begin the process of assessing the damages, rebuilding, and rectifying the wrongs from previous administration leaders. 

The picture below shows unit owners engaged  in the process of the meeting. The audience was given an opportunity to attend and speak and ideas were considered.

The meeting was open and orderly. The Board conducted business and the agenda items were discussed and resolved as needed.  

I can honestly say, that Thursday night's meeting was a great victory for the members of this Association. I think it sets the tone for things to come. 

Thank you to all who participated.  There will be many more meetings to come and each one will be better than the last. Your cooperation and assistance is requested during this transition.  

The office will reopen soon but please continue to mail your assessment payments to BB&T as usual.

Unit Owners pay attention, have fun, and are involved with the business of Jade Winds, the way it should be.
