Group's voice is heard in new book release

In the newly released book by Nelson, Private Neighborhoods, Nelson quotes Citizens Against Private Government HOAs (former name of this organization), pp. 342-3, Ch. 16, “The Executive Office”.

The material used (dated from 2003) reads, in part:

“According to this group, the lack of rights protection reflects in part the fact that ‘the HOA lacks a separation of powers doctrine as found in every level of American government’ . . . .”

“[W]hile members may vote for board members as if they were electing councilmen or legislators, the HOA is not a real democratic institution.”

The pattern of these chapters is to introduce prevalent problems and then the author presents his solutions.
