RESUMES OF THE CANDIDATES FOR THE 2021 BOARD OF DIRECTORS ELECTIONS
Edward Jordan Jr.
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.
Hello fellow Lake Wallenpaupack Estates Property Owners. My name is Ben Robitzer. I am new to the area I just purchased a property along with my brother and father last year. My Aunt and Uncle live in the community and I have been visiting since I was a teenager but I'm finally happy to say I have a property of my own. I live in Berks County working full time for Penske Truck Leasing. One of my favorite things to do is volunteer my time towards the things I love. I am a Lions Club member serving as Vice President in Spring Township and I am also on the board of trustees for my local library serving as secretary. I really enjoy spending time in this area and would love to serve as one of your board members. I feel my experience serving my community in Berks county would help me in serving on our board. I would appreciate your vote and I hope to see you out when walking around the area with my wife Alysson and our one year old son Alec.

Hello WLE Residents! My name is Jamie Toth and I am seeking election to the Board of Directors for the POA of WLE. Spring has sprung and I am enjoying this time in WLE! Especially 'the big melt'! I think that mound of snow at the bottom of my driveway will be there till June! I am new to the WLE community since last July 2020 and am considered a half-timer as I spend half the week in WLE and the other half at my home in New Jersey. I am a pharmaceutical professional and work 100% remotely.
My husband Rich and I have been married for almost 27 years and have two sons, Richie (25) and Michael (11). My youngest son, Michael, has spent endless days fishing, swimming, riding his bike, and snow tubing at WLE. Both he and his brother have many plans for their time in WLE with friends and activities. Michael is also an avid fisherman and joined forces with his neighbors to create a fishing YouTube Channel; with the proximity to Montage, Michael was also able to learn how to snowboard and enjoyed going there every other week and becoming a season pass holder. As a family, we have found peace in WLE, and have made many new friends and made a lifetime of memories in a short amount of time.
While my time in WLE has not been long, I can offer WLE POA the voice of a newcomer, and the experience I bring from global industry Boards as well as my vast business knowledge and experience. I can also offer a fresh, new perspective, as well as a female voice!
Below is a summary of my professional skills over my pharma career at Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. (present), Covance/Labcorp, and Bristol Myers Squibb:
Results oriented pharmaceutical professional with expertise in electronic Trial Masters File (eTMF), Records Management, Six Sigma, Business Process Improvement and Continuous Process Improvement, Information Technology, Project Management, Service Delivery Management, Relationship Management, and Knowledge Management. Proven background in delivering clinical solutions and services to pharmaceutical clients, negotiating, and managing vendor contracts, and performance measurements. Industry subject matter expert, chairwoman, presenter, at numerous industry conferences. Exceptional communication and problem-solving skills.
I was the Recording Secretary on my church Administrative Board for 6 years (2006-2012) and currently serve on three pharmaceutical industry boards with membership across industry and the globe: Steering Committee Member, Drug Information Association (DIA) Trial Master File (TMF) Reference Model Working Group, 2014 - present (re-elected April 2020); HSRAA Operations Committee Member and Recording Secretary, 2016 - present (re-elected 2020); Director of Board, Scientific Archivist Group (SAG), Ltd. which oversees Health Sciences Records and Archive Association (HSRAA), 2017 - present (re-elected 2020).
I have a Master of Science in Clinical Research and Organizational Management from Drexel University, College of Medicine; a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Technology from Fairleigh Dickinson University; and an Associates of Science in Computer Systems and Technology from Mercer Country Community College.
I hope you will consider me for your Board of Director's and would be willing to serve in any capacity available. Enjoy these spring months and the warm weather ahead!
Hello WLE property owners. My name is Kathleen Maynes. My husband Bob and I purchased our home in WLE in 1997. My husband, two sons, Robert and Ryan, and I immediately began enjoying all that this wonderful community had to offer. Both sons participated in the Swim Team and the Recreation Program. My younger son was employed as a lifeguard for three years. Our family has developed strong bonds of friendship within the community, enjoyed many of the planned activities, and appreciated the incredible amenities.
Although my primary residence is New Jersey, I have spent a good amount of time at WLE throughout the years. As an educator, I had the summers off and was able to enjoy staying here during that time period. Due to my retirement, my husband and I have spent more time over the past year at WLE than in New Jersey. Therefore, I would like to take a more active role in the Community. I also want to note that despite the difficulties with the pandemic throughout 2020, I am proud to see how WLE has responded to the needs of the POA.
Currently, I am the Chairperson of the Marina Committee. Over the past year the committee has planned for new upgrades and services for the 2021 boating season, which include new lighting, dead tree removal, new steps, additional safety signage, and docks and walkway replacements. Diligent about the budget of this amenity, the committee was able to accomplish these items without the necessity to raise dock fees. Conducting a meeting with officers from the PA Waterways and Conservation Department may open the way for educational and boating programs at WLE. I also previously served as secretary on the CDC Committee.
In addition to my instructional duties as an educator for 39 years, I also was the advisor for the Unity Club. The student members and I completed many hours of service assisting needy individuals and families. We volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, Coalition for the Homeless, Covenant House, and Camp Acorn. In 2015, I was proud to receive the certificate for "Educational Specialist of the Year" from the State of New Jersey. My fellow teachers in the district nominated me for this award. I feel this demonstrates that I am a team player that worked hard in my professional career. I would continue to be a team player and work hard to support the needs of the property owners of WLE.
Increasing communication, providing transparency, properly maintaining and updating amenities, and continuing a positive community experience would be my goals as a Board Member. Safety and fiscal responsibility would always be a priority. I believe I am very approachable and will always listen to your concerns.
I appreciate this opportunity to present myself as a candidate for the Board of Directors. If elected, I look forward to the chance to serve you.
To be reelected to serve on the Board of Directors for the property owners of Wallenpaupack Lake Estates. Presently retired and living here full time. I am looking forward to using my experience to help better the community.

• I would like to see the maintenance, operations, sewage & water and safety personal workloads and their equipment looked at to find better ways of recording work done and equipment used. I would like a record of
jobs that need to be done by maintenance and sewage & water entered in a back log of jobs that need to be done to help in future decisions and equipment needed to keep W.L.E. a thriving community.

Dear Board of Directors and WLE Property Owners,
My name is Rebecca Assenheimer and I am applying to be a candidate for the Board of Directors.
My husband, Robert, and I purchased our property in 2002 and became full time residents 15 years ago in 2006. I have a daughter Joanna and her husband Tom, a son Robert and his wife Melissa, and four grandsons, Tommy, Matt, Landon and Parker.
My professional career spanned 25 years in the medical field. I graduated from St. Joseph's school of Radiological Technology, earned my American Registry Radiologic Technologists+M and became licensed in several states. My professional experience honed my communication skills to be able to understand people's wants and needs which would help me work for the property owners as a board member.
Since settling in WLE, I have worked to become an active member of the community and contribute to the betterment of the community by volunteering my time and energy for various organizations and activities:
" I have been a member of the Woman's Luncheon Club for fourteen years during which I served four years as President, four years as Program Chairperson and one year as Public Relations Co-Chair.
" I served on the CDC committee for 5 1/2 years, including 1 year as Chairperson.
" I served as a member of Neighborhood Watch for one year.
" I have chaired 4 recreation parties, a New Year's Eve party, 2 St. Patrick's Day parties and a 60's party.
" I volunteered for 12 years at other recreation functions.
" I have been a judge for the cardboard boat races for seven years.
" I have been "Mrs. Santa" for the children's Christmas party for six years.
For these reasons, I feel I have the experience and knowledge to be an effective member on the Board of Directors. I respectfully seek your support and vote in the upcoming Board of Directors election in June 2021.
My name is Gino Dall'Aste. I am running for the WLE Board of Directors, and asking for your support.
My wife, Dolores, and I have been WLE property owners since 1997 and full-time
residents since 2005.
I was previously on WLE's Board of Directors from 2013 to 2019, serving as Vice-President for two years. Other committees I served on were Maintenance, Public Safety, and Beautification.
I believe members of the Board of Directors should live full-time in our community and be active within WLE. We need more "hands on" directors, as I was during the six years of my term (to which John Carney can attest).
Other examples of how I was "hands on" was with the many residents that helped me do various projects around WLE, such as:
• Putting up the green 911 house number signs for each house
• Deer Beach and Main Clubhouse rear renovations
• Upgrading electric to Kasper Lodge and WLE's office grounds.
• Painting all the steps and railings down by the Marina over an entire summer.
The efforts of the many volunteers who do so much for our community are greatly appreciated.
I have also been a volunteer fireman in the Lakeville Volunteer Fire Department since February 1998, and actively worked on getting our WLE Lakeville sub-station.
Again, I am asking for your support in the upcoming election.
This has been a tough year for all of us, and I hope you are all healthy and safe.
