Welcome to the community of Oyster Harbor

On the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis, MD

Letter from Winston Dunkley, Chairman of the OHCA Board

Dear Oyster Harbor Neighbors,

First, I am humbled to have been selected by the community to serve once again on the Board and I am honored to have been selected by the members of the OHCA Board as its new Chairman, along with Sharon Merrick as Vice Chair and Nancy Plaxico as Board Secretary. On behalf of the Board and the Community, I would like to thank Calvin Kidd for his lengthy service as Board Chairman.

I am especially looking forward to working together with all of you for the benefit of our community Oyster Harbor. As the OHCA Constitution dictates, we have been organized “to dedicate ourselves in an effort to address problems as they arise in the best interest of the community and to accomplish these goals in a manner consistent with the laws of Anne Arundel County and the State of Maryland.”

It has become increasingly apparent that we need to focus on enhancing communication, transparency and sound expenditure of our financial resources. Protecting the best interests of our community is my guiding principle. I take very seriously the Board’s fiduciary duty to all of you to make sound and effective decisions and help assemble a budget that uses our special tax funds as efficiently as possible.

While I recognize that sometimes I become overly passionate regarding community issues, I would like us to try and reset the tone of our discussions in Board meetings to one that shows mutual respect for each other’s beliefs and positions. Let’s move forward and work more constructively for the betterment of our community. I would also like to ask for patience and understanding from the community as together we grapple with the issues facing us. You cannot turn the Queen Mary around on a dime, hence, change cannot happen overnight.

Our Board meetings will be advertised in advance and open to all who wish to attend. And while we welcome your interest in the work of the Board, these meetings are scheduled to discuss and vote on the issues at hand. The Community Association meetings, the first of which will be held on November 22, will provide an opportunity for asking questions or expressing your views.

Our community is filled with talented and dedicated individuals from all walks of life, and we hope to continue to benefit from tapping into those resources, whether through your participation on the various committees or through your suggestions.

I look forward to working together with all of you for an even better Community.

Winston Dunkley
Chairman, OHCA Board of Directors
