Neighborhood News

     Floral Park has several ways of communicating news to the neighbors who call Historic Floral Park home. We have the Floral Park Neighborhood Gazette which is published and distributed to homes within the neighborhood and community (as well as online) four times yearly. But we also publish timely news through via email, news like important weather alerts, social events, and happenings within the neighborhood.
    We also maintain a Facebook page with news, photos and links. And our Instagram page posts a new and beautiful photo of Floral Park for every day of the year!  So get in the know! Subscribe below.

The Special Election Meeting was held on Tuesday, May 10, 2022. Pursuant to the FPNA Election Rules, any open board position receiving more than one nominee (i.e., any contested position) is required to be elected via mail-in ballot. Listed below (in alphabetical order) are the candidates for Parliamentarian, which is the sole contested position:

Patrick Johnson

Bev Schauwecker/Julie Humphreys

The candidate statements are listed below after the ballot instructions.

Ballots have been mailed to each residence in Floral Park. The mailed ballot contains the following detailed instructions on how to vote. Listed on the back of your ballot are the nominations for contested board positions. Each Floral Park residence is entitled to only one (1) vote per household. If more than one ballot per residence is received, all ballots from the residence will be void.

Your ballot must be returned in the envelope provided, and your Floral Park return address must be clearly printed on the outside of the return ballot envelope. Envelopes returned without a legible, Floral Park return address will be void. Ballot must be postmarked or in drop box no later than Thursday, June 9, 2022. Late postmarks will not be counted. Drop boxes are also available at the following locations:

2341 Bonnie Brae

2133 Greenleaf St.

2453 North Park

 

The Election Committee will hold a meeting on Thursday, June 16, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at 2133 Greenleaf St. to count the ballots and announce the candidates with the most votes. The meeting is open to all Floral Park residents who wish to observe the tallying of votes.

 

If you have not received a ballot by Monday, June 6, 2022 or need a replacement ballot, please contact the FPNA Election Chair at elections@floralpark.com. Remember, only one vote per household is permitted. If more than one ballot is received from the same household (which is verified via your Floral Park return address on the outside of the blue envelope), all ballots received from the household are void and will not be counted.

Thank you for your participation!

Candidate Statements:

Patrick Johnson

I’m currently the President & CEO of BioPhotas, Inc., a medical device company I co-founded in 2011.  Most of my professional career has been spent leading Orange County-based companies, public and private, for-profit and non-profit.  I’ve served on most of these Company’s Boards.  I attended Santa Ana College prior to earning undergraduate degrees in Legal Studies and Philosophy from UC Santa Cruz. I also earned a Master’s in Business Administration from Pepperdine University.  I am 3rd generation Orange Countian with deep roots in Floral Park, where my grandparents built their retirement home on Victoria in the late 40’s.   I’m deeply committed to historical preservation and safeguarding the integrity of our neighborhood and community.  I believe my experience and skills will be a valuable addition to the Floral Park Board in the role of Parliamentarian.  

 

Bev Schauwecker/Julie Humphreys

We are Bev Schauwecker and Julie Humphreys, longtime residents of Floral Park. We were each instrumental in the formation of FPNA and have been active on the Board in various capacities since then. We seek to continue serving FPNA as Co-Parliamentarians. Together, we provide a wealth of institutional knowledge and historic perspective to the Board which benefits the neighborhood and ensures continuity and conformity with the governing documents established to run the 501(c)(3) organization, suggesting changes as would be helpful. As recipients of the Neighborhood Legacy Award for our past participation, we will continue to work for the benefit of the Association and the neighborhood. Please support our attempt to serve the neighborhood and keep it the wonderful place we call home. Thank you!


Congratulations to the newly elected 2022 FPNA Board members, who were either unopposed or nominated and thus, elected at the Special Election Meeting on May 10, 2022.
