On December 21, 2012 my Petition to the White House to declare that the people living in HOAs are still citizens of this country and of their respective state (White House petition to defend US citizenship of people in HOAs) failed to receive the necessary submissions for a WH response. That petition failed miserably, evidencing a very narrow understanding of the actions necessary for HOA reform legislation. This lack of interest and concern denied reformers an opportunity to create a dialogue with Washington on a problem facing homeowners in all the states.
A petition related to citizenship and a united country (grant the State of Louisiana to withdraw from the United States of America ) did get the 25,000 submissions (just under 39,000 submissions) and received a response from the WH, Our States Remain United. Shame on all those advocates seeking reforms who failed to see an important opportunity to advance national awareness of and the need for HOA reforms across the country and in every state.
