KC Star: problem with HOA? Don’t go to CAI

KC Star HOA articles by Judy Thomas, Aug. 3, 2016

Please read these articles that do not hide the facts about HOA-Land.  Buyers have been misled about HOAs for years.  The truth is out there!

In “Group shifts its mission” below,

“If you’re looking for help because your homeowners association is pushing you around, there’s one place you may not want to go:

The Community Associations Institute.

“Although the organization says it works to promote harmony in HOAs, it actually sides almost exclusively with HOA boards, critics say.”

 See also comments and website links of HOA reform advocates.  I am quoted: 

Citizens for Constitutional Local Government

Founded by George Staropoli, a Phoenix homeowners’ rights activist. Website is http://pvtgov.org/pvtgov/.

Homeowners associations have established a “New America contrary to that of The Founding Fathers, and one that has not only changed the physical landscape across America, but the cultural, social and political landscapes as well.”

  1. […] KC Star: problem with HOA? Don’t go to CAI (2016).  Excellent series, but failing to address substantive  constitutional […]

  2. Thanks for the link to KC star. I just sent off my story.
    Lets hope some light can be shed on the issue.
    I have gone through a great deal of hardship due to our HOA.

  3. We must defend our champions like Judy!

    We must continue to do battle against all CAI opposition using evidence and legal authority to discredit them and to make them answer even more questions. Judy gave us a platform for a dialogue. Let’s “milk it!” Let’s use it to our benefit and not waste it. Don’t know when we’ll get another opportunity.

    Put them on the spot with leading questions, like,

    So you agree that HOA boards must strictly enforce CC&Rs because you, CAI, don’t trust the HOA membership? Oh, you believe disorder and standards will fall apart and chaos will result if not? Isn’t that the modus operandi of all dictatorships, strict, harsh and unfair punishments? Of course HOA boards are unfair. Do you really think the kangaroo courts are fair and just?

    Get the dialogues going. Tweak CAI! Press its hot buttons! Force them to answer our questions.

  4. Great, George! Keep spreading the word….the truth is FINALLY being told in the media!

    Thank you, Judy Thomas!
