ALL RESUMES ARE LISTED IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY WERE RECEIVED & DATED IN THE OFFICE
RESUMES OF THE CANDIDATES FOR THE 2018 BOARD OF DIRECTORS ELECTIONS
My name is Edward Jordan. I am currently seeking reelection to the Board of Directors for the Property Owners Association of Wallenpaupack Lake Estates. I have been a member of WLE since 1975 when my parents purchased their lot in section 1 and built their home. In 2005 my wife and I purchased our own home in WLE. I enjoy spending time with my children and grandchildren at WLE using the many amenities it offers. With over 40 years vested in WLE plus my father's service on the first Board of Directors helping to pull the association from bankruptcy when the developer abandoned the community, I believe it is time for me to step up and do my part to help continue the work that the original board envisioned. A quality community while keeping costs in mind.
I am a retired Detective from the New York City Police Department, of which 15 of my years in service I was assigned to the Organized Crime Control Bureau. Since retirement I have worked for the Whitehall Coplay School District.
My community involvement includes serving as a member of the Board of Directors, former Secretary for the Marina Committee, where we have managed to upgrade our facilities without increasing the costs and I also served on the Citation Review Committee.
I am presently Financial Secretary for the Ancient Order of Herbinians Lehigh County where we promote Irish Heritage and raise funds for local children's charities, and Secretary for the Columbian Home of Allentown. In addition, I previously served as the President of the NYPD Holy Name Society.
As you can see my history with our community goes back a long way. I remember the struggles that the property owners went through to make WLE the place it is today. My goal for WLE is to continue making this the premier Community in the Poconos at a cost we all can afford. Thank you for your consideration.
Fellow Property Owners,
My name is Robert Assenheimer. My wife Rebecca ("Becky") and I made Wallenpaupack Lake Estates (WLE) our full-time home in 2006. Approximately three years ago, I asked for and received your support for election to the Board of Directors (BOD). Thank you. For this year the board elected me to serve as President. Now I am asking for your support for reelection to the BOD.
For those of you who are new to the community or don't know me, before retirement I was a licensed professional engineer. I believe my education which includes BS and MS degrees, along with my experience as an engineer, manager and director, help me make some valuable contributions to various community projects such as the Marina Drive well, Rockledge Pool rebuilding and Sewer and Water systems.
As residents, Rebecca and I have worked on various community projects and events including Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Kentucky Derby celebration and Saint Patrick's Day. Before being elected to the BOD, I was chairman of the Building Compliance Committee.
While serving on the board, I have tried to make sure our entire family, both property owners and employees, were treated fairly. I do not have a personal agenda but, instead I have worked to have the BOD do what the property owners want done and that all property owners are heard. I believe in openness, communication and truthfulness and for these reasons I am asking for your vote again.

My family and I have been participating members of W.L.E. and have enjoyed the community since 1973, on a part time basis. In 2011, after 40 years in the Energy Business, my wife Eileen and I decided to make W.L.E. our permanent residence. In January of 2012, we became full time residents and are enjoying all the development has to offer with our family. Eileen and I have been very involved with our community since becoming full time residents by joining and volunteering for community events and committees. In addition, for the past five years I have served as an active member on our Lakeville Fire Company.
For the past four years, I have served on the W.L.E. Board of Directors with two of my years being President. During this time, we have achieved significant changes to improve our community and set many more in motion. Most noteworthy, have been the establishment of a Marina Committee and a total replacement plan for our marina. We have also achieved a total review of our financial budget, which lead to minimal increasing of dues for the past four years.
Our community has two major projects under development this year that I have been very involved in; the construction of the Marina Drive well and the replacement of our Rockledge Pool. For this reason, I have decided to run again for a position on the W.L.E. Board of Directors. I believe my experience will be very helpful in controlling costs and improving all our wonderful amenities, in regards to operations and maintenance.
