Tampa subdivision is accusing its former leadership of lying and falsifying
evidence to overturn a recall vote and stay in power, after an expensive
Camden Woods is a subdivision in southeast Tampa with 115 voting homeowners.
Records suggest it is managed by Avid Management of Tampa.
Camden Woods’ current Homeowner’s Association president is 58-year-old Julie
Former HOA staff includes Terry Jolly Henry, 44, who previously served as
president and is also a licensed real estate agent; John Clay Jenkins, 65, was
vice president. Lanette Nicole Stevens, 43, was former secretary.
In 2016, homeowners at the Camden Woods subdivision narrowly approved a petition
to recall the subdivision’s three-member board — led by then-president Henry.
A few days later, the board asked the Florida Department of Business and
Professional Regulation to intercede, saying 10 of the homeowners had rescinded
their votes to recall.
Arbitrator Terri Leigh Jones later ruled against Henry, Jenkins and Stevens, but
not before the Homeowner’s Association spent over $18,000 on legal fees. Jones
upheld the recall vote after concluding that the three had lied about discussing
each of the 10 allegedly rescinded votes during a public meeting Sept. 6, 2016.
In a 104-page filing in Hillsborough County Circuit Court dated April 5, the HOA
is claiming breach of fiduciary duty, accusing the ousted board members of
fabricating evidence of rescinded votes to attempt to stay in power.
According to the complaint: “Defendants … fabricated events, fabricated motions,
fabricated votes, fabricated revocations, fabricated signatures, and drafted
four pages of falsified minutes, creating sham motions that did not occur.”
In addition, the three are accused of “intentionally and knowingly misled the
Association’s attorney, provided the Association’s attorney with the fabricated
evidence and fictitious minutes of the meeting, and through a series of motions
and pleadings continue to improperly waste Association funds on events and
evidence defendants knew were completely falsified.”
Current President McDaniel is the person allegedly leading the effort to oust
the three former leaders.
Interestingly, Henry’s Facebook page has the introduction: “No Weapons formed
against me shall prosper!”
