About John Rajcic

DR. JOHN M. RAJCIC( Ragic like magic)

For SDCEA Board of Directors

My personal philosophy is anchored in optimism. I believe in collaboration but in being provocative at times. The result is better policy. I do not avoid, repress, or deny conflict, but rather see it as an opportunity.

The Estates is a great place to live for a variety of reasons, including; economic, recreational and social. Golf , tennis, equestrian, park and recreation activities are enjoyed by many and enhance property values. Timeshare ,lodging and the restaurant contribute to an appealing overall resort environment.

We must remember the silent majority not involved in these activities. They see their annual ,$1248.00, HOA dues as a tax.

The Estates is too bureaucratized . When people are meeting, they are not doing their job. The General Manager and Supervisors should be more hands-on and the General Manager must be more visible. Management should be “lite”, just enough to get the job done .

EDUCATION…BA-U of Minnesota, MS-University of Southern California, PhD-Claremont Graduate University. Graduated from the Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth ,KS and the Army War College, Carlisle`, PA.

EXPERIENCE…Hands-on experience as it relates to the Estates, includes ; extensive experience in budgeting and fund accounting, the hospitality industry and parks and recreation. My equestrian experience, other than dating back to my grandfather’s two gentle work horses is minimal. Connie and I have “saddled-up” on vacations , occasionally go to a horse show, the track and a rodeo . We also had a friend who was a dressage rider.
