2013 EMP Election Independent Analysis

Once again the ‘Pro’ Candidates win in a landslide. The ‘PRO’ candidates got 1,099 (74.4%) vs. 379 (25.6%) for ‘ANTI’ candidates (see following post for detailed results).

It would appear that this is a strong mandate for our newly minted Board to re-open the pursuit of privatization!

Jeanne Poindexter, the figurehead/spokesperson for the ANTI’s got 145 votes, lower than her average of 179 the last 6 times she has ran since 2006 and way below her high of 261 in 2006.

Great showing by newcomer Mala Mosher with 300 votes. Since 2005, the highest number of votes for any candidate was for Alan Rosof in 2008 with 373 followed closely by Jerry Fox, also in 2008 with 372.

EMPTCA Recommendations for December 2013 Vote

Email from EMP Tenant-Cooperator Association 12/1/2013

Dear EMP neighbor:

As we have every year, we will soon mail you a proxy . . . along with recommendations, instructions and an envelope for you to mail the proxy back to EMP. If you are away and would like us to email a proxy to you, please let us know.

Here’s a summary of the info you’ll receive:


 We have an exceptional Board of Directors:

  •  EMP is safe, secure and well-maintained.
  • We have new windows, new elevators and much, much more.
  • Roof replacement and plaza reconstruction programs are underway.
  • 10 of our 11 stores are rented — at very good rents.
  • If we attempt to go private again, these Board members will support it.

                  We urge you to re-elect ALL FIVE

  • Mark Andermanis
  • Steven Goldstein
  • Janice Kabel
  • Mala Mosher
  • Larry Weiner

One other issue: Vote FOR the resolution to increase the purchase price of our apartments. The increase will pay for major projects and help keep our maintenance low. This charge will only affect people buying new apartments.

Vote FOR the resolution. It’s really good for EMP.

 The 300+ members of the East Midtown Plaza Tenant-Cooperator Association
