ORIGINAL STORY: Lantana has reached the point where a resident will be elected to the Lantana Community Association’s Board of Directors and 14 residents have stepped up to run for the first open seat.
The community association has posted biographies of the candidates and an online ballot on the HOA website, www.LantanaLive.com, and will be mailing notices of the election meeting, set for Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 6:30 p.m. at Harpool Middle School.
Candidates running for the board seat are:

Residents can vote online by 5 p.m. on February 22 or at the meeting.
To help insure a quorum is reached, proxies will also be provided to allow absentee voting. However, because nominations from the floor are permitted, residents are encouraged to attend the meeting in person.
Although the current Board of Directors is comprised of three employees of developer Forestar Group, one of the board members is 11-year Lantana resident, Tara Boswell, Lantana Sales Manager.
