One of the early founders of our movement who’s perhaps one of the top three homeowners rights advocates in the country is Arizona’s George Staropoli. He has testified before legislatures, he’s a devout Constitutionalist, he’s perhaps one of the most articulate people standing up for downtrodden victims of the national HOA scam. To say he was a huge inspiration to me is putting it mildly.
His website, pvtgov.org, has tens of thousands of fans. In fact, his was the first site I discovered when I was trying to learn what was wrong with the basic nature and structure of American Homeowners Associations.
But his post linked below is exceptionally powerful, and should be spread to every legislator in the country. It should be a guest editorial in every newspaper. It’s not negative, but is actually a positive critique of HOAs because it points us to an escape route from the current HOA system.
Ward, with your extensive background I should have known you’d see right through me. Your last sentence, “It’s not negative, but is actually a positive critique of HOAs because it points us to an escape route from the current HOA system” is right on. I hope others, especially the policy makers, will join in your astute observation. I hope they take steps to make HOAs truly desirable communities and part of the American way of life.
