Ann Boon, ousted earlier this year as president of the Rancho Santa Fe homeowners association, has been re-elected to the board along with an ally, Kim Eggleston.
The pair ran together on a platform of transparency, after raising questions about compensation and other issues at the association.
The bested Dominick Addario and Susan Callahan, candidates who said they wanted to bring back civility that had been lost under Boon’s leadership earlier this year when she publicly questioned the manager’s contract and the HOA’s tax filing.
It was an unprecedented campaign season, with Eggleston, Boon and their supporters making extra efforts to campaign through websites, mailers, signs and a voter-registration drive.
Homeowners took notice, casting 1,544 ballots, more than any other election in recent history, according to association staff. Voter turnout reached nearly 75 percent.
