HOA owners, advocates and activates still don’t understand that they are and remain a fragmented group of individuals with similar HOA issues and problems, up against a united opposition headed by CAI. They stand, as a group, in the same shoes as employees did at the turn of the 20th century until the Feds stepped in and legalized opposition groups of employees into unions.
Some still believe unions were and are bad, but that is beside the point. HOA owners need federally protected rights to oppose the HOA corporations. Let’s use the term, ”HOA Homeowners Community Association.” But, that won’t happen until owners can unite at least for the purpose of federal protection. Otherwise, the good efforts of the many who publicize are just spinning wheels – the decision makers are well aware of the many, many, common problems.
See my 2013 post, Organize, organize, organize, but organize your local HOA, on organizing at the local level – the HOA. Just expand that into a federally protected right to organize. See also, my 2014 post, Proposed US Constitution amendments will help HOA reforms on Supreme Court Justice Stevens’ proposed constitutional amendments.
