From an email from the ASPOA Board of Directors.

Dear Alta Sierra Resident,

The ASPOA Board has received many inquiries regarding confusion over the two upcoming elections. We hope to clarify the issue for you.

The official ASPOA election takes place on December 2nd, and ballots for that election will be mailed to members. There are a total of six candidates presented to fill 3 open director positions. There has not been a balloted election for many years; due to increased interest and participation this year, there are more candidates than vacant positions.

Here are the important official election dates for you to remember:

Monday, Nov. 4 The last day to join ASPOA to vote in the official election (visit to renew online)

Wednesday, Nov. 6 Ballots mailed to all ASPOA members

Saturday, Nov. 9 (9-11 AM) The “Meet Your Candidates” event at the Alta Sierra Country Club

Friday, Nov. 29 Mailed ballots must be received at: ASPOA, P.O. Box 2749 Grass Valley, CA 95945-2749

Monday, Dec. 2 Board Meeting / Election Day, Ballots must be dropped off by 10AM

We encourage you to participate in this official election, and to carefully review your list of candidates. The candidate statements will be available online next week at

Tomorrow’s (11/2) election sponsored by RecallASPOA, with 11 candidates on the slate, is unsanctioned by ASPOA and any results will not be valid unless a court order is issued in their favor. They are attempting to fill 8 board positions they believe were vacated with their recall efforts, despite the lack of a ruling in their favor by a judge. The hearing to resolve this matter has been postponed until November 21st, though we cannot be certain there will be a decision made until after the official election.

Thank you for your continued support and participation!

The ASPOA Board of Directors:

Paul Hoefler
