I would like to thank the POA Board for serving the people of Diamondhead. As one who has been there, I am well aware of the sacrifice of time and effort required of you. It is certainly not easy to try to meet the demands of 8,000 or so people while being constrained by no less than eight various laws, agreements, rules, etc. ,.. spelled out in hundreds of pages of documents, while sometimes being the I target of “rock throwing” by people who, as often as not, do not have their story correct.
I pray that the Lord will someday allow the “side liners” to realize that using their God given talents to actively serve the people of Diamondhead is far more honorable and rewarding than sitting on the side lines and throwing rocks at the people who do.
Do we always agree with POA Boards? Absolutely not. However, on balance, Diamondhead is a great place to live, retire, work, and play precisely BECAUSE of the collective work of the many people who have in the past …and continue today … to care and to serve. While we are not perfect, our Diamondhead Community is way, way ahead of most other places we might live. A heartfelt thanks
May God Bless.
