no "member service" doctrine in HOAs equivalent to "public service"

On Jan 21, Pres. Obama returned to the doctrine that government employees must adopt and abide by a belief in public service.

In the realm of authoritarian HOAs, there is no equivalent “member service” doctrine because there is no provision for such within the duties, obligations and responsibilities set forth between the parties in the binding agreement known as the CC&Rs. There is also no requirement to:

* be compassionate,
* be fair and just,
* provide due process protections for members,
* adopt the US Bill of Rights as part of the CC&Rs,
* provide for a truly democratic form of government with a separation of powers and checks and balances upon the Board, or
* provide for fair elections that include free political speech and equal access to resources to contact the membership, such as with community centers, newsletters, member mailing lists, etc.


President Obama must address the 20% of Americans living under authoritarian, undemocratic private HOA regimes, not subject to the Bill of Rights!
