Notice of Intent with short Background Information


I, Mary J. Dickinson, hereby place my name in nomination as a candidate for the Board of Directors.

I am retired and have the time and interest to serve.

I am an owner since 1991 with my son Dennis.

I have run my own business for 47 years which has given me a lot of common sense.

I can be available most of the time.

I live in Florida (St. Pete) from October to May or June.

Also, I am willing to do any task.


Mary J. Dickinson, #801


(Webmaster's note:

The Candidate has listed her phone number as well but for obvious reasons I have not posted it here.

You can either email me at to obtain it or call any of the Interim Board members).





Background Information


I have submitted my name as a nominee for election to the Starlight Tower Board of Directors scheduled for the Annual Meeting, April 17, 2007.

I would like to se the record straight!

It has been rumored around Starlight Tower that I am opposed to Starlight's restoration project.

Nothing could be farther from the truth!

Besides being out of City compliance, it is obvious that Starlight needs more than a facelift, that restoration to deal with our chloride/corrosion problem is in order.

My husband, Dan, and I asked many questions throughout the process, but that was because so many facets of the project were vague, options hadn't been thoroughly researched, nor recommendations explained.

The bottom line is that we always wanted what is best for Starlight, and best for our investment, even though it might turn out to be the most expensive solution.

I seeking answers to our many questions, and solutions to the many problems that had surfaced, we constantly assured other Starlighters that knowledge and information should not be threatening, but enlightening, and that we needed to make sure we didn't end up being "penny-wise and pound foolish". 

After much correspondence, and many hours (and expense) spent on long-distance inquiries seeking additional info, we now have had our questions answered.

I approve of the present interim Board's efforts to move forward with the project in the immediate future.

There have been kinks, and insufficient information, in the proposed contracts.

Negotiations demanding and time-consuming as the Board endeavors to make certain all concerns have been addressed , and discrepancies resolved, before signing contracts.

The obvious goal is to get Starlight restored and brought into City compliance as soon as possible.

Building on that groundwork, I would work to continue and complete the process the present Board has begun.

For other information about my experience and background please refer to the sheet I submitted in January when I announced my nomination at that time.

If you have questions, please call me at *xxx-xxx-xxxx.

I ask for your vote!

Thank you!


Marlene Reid #201 & #202


(Webmaster's note:

For obvious reasons I have not posted Mrs. Reid's phone number either but you can obtain it from the shareholders list).
