Replacements for the two vacant spots on the Continental Ranch home-owners association is expected to occur this month, according to the Continental Ranch Community Association officials.

As per a judge’s order, all ballots in the recall election of the Continental Ranch HOA board were recounted late-May, which resulted in removing Nicole Glasner and Tom Litch from the board.

When a recall petition was filed against the board late last year, five of the seven board members resigned before the recall election was held. Only Glasner and Litch were left to face the voters.

Glasner and Litch were removed by 53 and 60 percentage votes, respectively. The two were president and vice president of the organization, and the June 24 board meeting should find their replacements.

The original Jan. 31 recall election was thrown out because only 697 of the 1,444 submitted ballots were counted, falling below the 1,000-vote quorum. The other 747 ballots were tossed out for not meeting all of the election requirements.

On May 6, Judge Charles V. Harrington ruled in Pima County Superior Court that all the ballots must be counted.

The recall effort sprang from dissatisfaction over the board’s new trash deal and enforcement of violations perceived as frivolous by some residents. More than 4,000 houses are included in Continental Ranch, making it the largest homeowners association in Marana.

Marana Town Councilman and Continental Ranch resident Russell Clanagan had filed a lawsuit against the homeowners association in December, arguing for a straight election of the HOA’s board members.

The lawsuit also challenged the validity of appointing the remaining members to the HOA board, but under the ruling, the five replacements are allowed to stay in their positions.

While the order to recount all the votes was given, several other points raised in Clanagan’s lawsuit were thrown out, such as getting rid of all the newly appointed HOA board members.

Had the 697 votes counted the first time around in January, Glasner and Licht would’ve been removed by votes of 57 and 62 percent, respectively.
