At the Baca Grande Property Owner’s Association Annual Membership Meeting Friday, Nov. 12 Treat Suomi and Joy Hill were elected to the board of directors to fill the two available seats.  Treat received 675 votes, Joy 500 votes. Incumbent board member Diane Dunlap, who was running for reelection, only received 400 votes.
The meeting was attended by over 60 people, many who requested that the POA board reinstate Kimberly Bryant as fire chief.  Bryant was recently fired, a week before the election, at an unannounced meeting of the POA board.  No reason was given for the dismissal of the popular fire chief.
The matter of her reinstatement will be on the agenda of the new board’s first meeting on Thursday, Nov. 18 at 7 pm at the POA Hall.
