Ann Boon elected president of Rancho Santa Fe Association Board of Directors



New officers were elected for the Rancho Santa Fe Association Board of Directors at the board’s June 20 meeting. Ann Boon was elected president, Rochelle Putnam is vice president and Larry Spitcaufsky will take a second spin as treasurer of the board.

New board members Heather Slosar, Jerry Yahr and Philip Wilkinson joined the board for the officers’ vote. They will take their seats on the board July 1.

Last week’s meeting also marked the last meeting for outgoing board president Roxanna Foxx, vice president Anne Feighner and member Eamon Callahan.

Foxx thanked board member Craig McAllister for his enthusiasm and communication skills; Feighner for her “institutional memory”; Boon for her analytical and research-based approach to the board; Spitcaufsky for his leadership and “legendary” financial expertise; Putnam for her commitment to preserving and maintaining the community’s trail system; and Callahan for being thoughtful and even-handed.

Feighner thanked Foxx for her “fabulous” leadership as president over the last year.

In his parting words, Callahan spoke of the stalled proposed farmers market, saying it was proposed as a way to try and bring more business for the village merchants as the village has become mostly banks and investment firms.

“I hope the board continues to look into ways of bringing more life into the village because I think the merchants need it,” Callahan said.
