Three in the Running for AMSCD Board Seat

Three Ave Maria residents have qualified to run for the seat on the Ave Maria Stewardship Community District that will be chosen in the district's first election in which all residents have an opportunity to vote.
Kyle Armstrong and Jeff Fenuccio were the latest to file their paperwork by the March 31 deadline, joining Robb Klucik, who had filed papers a few weeks earlier, on the ballot.
The election April 25 will be the first popular-vote election in which all residents will have a chance to vote to elect one of the five members of the board. Since the founding of Ave Maria, all board members were chosen in a "landowners election" in which the developers determined who would be on the board.
Mr. Armstrong (right), a Florida native, has lived in Emerson Park with his wife, Leah, since 2013. He is a Senior Manufacturing Engineer for Arthrex and previously had worked as a Civil Engineer, working on both commercial and residential land development.
"Being on the board would allow me to work with the residents to get their voices heard," he said in response to an email from The Ave Herald. "As the town grows, expands and evolves, the infrastructure and amenities of the community need to be addressed, altered and/or expanded. With my background of years in Land Development and Civil Engineering, as well as being a resident of Ave Maria, I believe that I am more than capable of working with the Board of Supervisors as an equally qualified peer while having the community's residents' needs and wants addressed."
