Join candidates Heidi Klyn, Matt Oliver, and Jerry Gladstone, as they hold an exclusive wine and chocolate Meet and Greet event with assistance from the Oakmont Grassroots Organization .  This event, taking place on February 15th at 6:00 PM at the East Rec Center, offers residents an opportunity to connect with the candidates and learn about their visions for Oakmont’s future.

At a recent Meet and Greet event held on February 5th, Heidi Klyn emphasized the importance of fiscal responsibility, advocating for prudent spending practices and maintaining affordability amidst rising living costs. With previous experience on the OVA Board of Directors and a record of volunteering with multiple organizations, Heidi brings a wealth of leadership experience to the table.

Matt Oliver, with forty years of constructive management and consulting experience, pledged to prioritize the financial stability of Oakmont. As a member of the Finance Ad Hoc Committee and chair of the Building Construction Committee, Matt is committed to collaborative solutions that respect diverse perspectives.

Jerry Gladstone, 4-term and current President of the Singing Brook Sub-association and an executive manager in the high-tech industry, emphasizes the importance of keeping budgets in line with affordable dues. Jerry’s hands-on approach to community involvement and plans for implementing professional management practices align with his vision for an affordable Oakmont.

The upcoming forum on February 15th will provide residents with an opportunity to voice their concerns and ideas directly to the candidates. The focus will be on listening to residents’ needs and providing specific plans for future policy and projects.

    I already know I am voting for Heidi, Matt and Jerry for obvious reasons. Will there be a ‘meet & greet’ for the incumbents who are eligible to be re-elected?

      There are also two OVA-scheduled Meet & Greet events for all 8 candidates, on March 1 and March 20. See https://oakmontvillage.com/article/2024-slate-of-candidates-announced/
