Clarification on Voting Procedures for HOA Candidates 

It has come to our attention that many people who had  received the Candidate  Election Voting Instructions are having problems voting. 

To vote electronically simply hit REPLY to the E-mail that was sent to you. Type in the names of the two people you are voting for. Type in your name and address and hit SEND. That's it! 

If you prefer not to use this method, click the file that says ballot. Once loaded you must PRINT the ballot. Once printed, use a pen and circle the candidates name or write in someone else. Complete the form by adding your name and address on the bottom. Take this form to the Clubhouse and deposit it into the ballot box. 

Hope this clears up the confusion.

JERE BUCHTER   888 CAMBRIDGE DRIVE 
Born and lived in Lititz and graduated from Warwick High School 1961.  Worked for Hen & Dave’s Glass and Bike shop.  I also helped volunteer with the Lititz Fire Company with their service to the community.  Entered the United States Air Force in 1962 and after being Honorably discharged in 1966 I returned to a waiting job with Alcoa Corporation located then on the Fruitville Pike.  
Living back in Lititz I became very active with the Lititz Fire Company again.  Through the years I have attended many training schools for advanced firefighting and management of the fire service.    Having attended Lancaster County’s Fire school for training and assisted in helping to train other fireman I also advanced through the Lititz Fire Co. and in 1980 was elected Chief of the Company.  I have accumulated over 400 hours of fire service training at the Delaware Stare Fire School.  After 19 years of employment at the Lancaster Alcoa plant they closed the plant. 
 Fortunately Alcoa had another plant near Lebanon, Pa. and I was rehired there.  At the Lebanon Plant I was a Fire Brigade responder and advanced to Captain, in addition to being a Certified Haz-Mat Technician attained through the Delaware State Fire School.  The five member Haz-Mat team including myself spent a week at Texas AM University for advanced training.  Having been employed by Alcoa for a total of 33 years I retired in May of 2001.  
Having spent years with the Lancaster County Fireman’s  Assoc. as a member, Board member, past President and now just a Life Member.  I have also been active with the Rothsville Fire Co. and have been a firefighter, driver, trustee, Vice President and presently a Life Member.  I am also the past President of the Union Fire Company of Lancaster City and I am still a Board Member.   In 2009 my wife and I had our home built in Brookshire.  At present with the approval of the HOA Board and Nelson I help to maintain any items inside Brookshire’s Club House.  Lastly, I believe with my background in management and maintenance I would be an asset to the Board.

Jim Herbert
401 Rosewood Drive

     I am writing this letter to express my interest in joining the Brookshire Homeowner Association as a board member.
     My wife Lynn and I moved to Lititz, PA, after I retired from the Stamford (CT) Police Department in 2018 after a 38-year career. The move was closer to our daughter's family and five grandchildren. Also, Lynn's sister and her family live in the area. We also have a son still in CT with three more of our grandchildren.
     We moved to Traditions of America in Lititz in 2018 after my retirement. Then in 2021, we discovered Brookshire Community. We felt this was where we wanted to be and moved to 401 Rosewood Avenue in March 2021. 
    My career with the Stamford Police Department spanned over 38 years. During that time, I was a Patrol Officer, Hostage Negotiator, Crisis Intervention Officer, Acting Sergeant, Administrative Officer assigned to the Extra Duty Office, Administrative Officer assigned to the Jail and working with the Courts, and many other duties around the department.
    As a member of the Stamford Police Association (our union), I created the website and Facebook Page for the Police Union, which led me to be named Association Member of the Year in 2009.
    After retirement, I have kept myself busy. When we lived at Traditions of America in Lititz, I helped with the community website for our HOA.
     I have created and run the websites for Hershey Civil War Round Table, Central Pennsylvania Vietnam Round Table, Praise Unlimited, and Stamford Police Association Retired Members.
     Along with this, I just started a small business taking VCR tapes and transferring them to DVD's
     I also enjoy photography and also created a website for my amateur photographs.
     As a Brookshire Resident I am concerned about making this community more secure, peaceful and valuable for all the homeowners.
     Now that I have retired from my job and have plenty of time, I feel that it’s time to do something for the community. It will be a pleasure for me to serve the Brookshire Community Homeowners Association as a board member.
