Thank you to everyone who voted. Please continue to be active in Kentwood Home Guardians.
**Quorum is the percentage of eligible voters needed to conduct the election, 169 required as per KHG Election Rules.
The Board also wishes to recognize and thank our Inspector of Elections, Linda Kokelaar for her tireless efforts behind the scenes for the last couple of months. Having to track and administrate ballots for a large community such as Kentwood is a huge, thankless task, and shouldn’t be taken for granted. It took Linda and her helper, Mandy Bell (a Big Thank You as well), over 7 hours to tally a final count.
