Our old buddies, the ethically-challenged Associa Companies are trying to bribe homeowners into ‘liking’ them on FaceBook. Associa is the massive HOA management company run by the infamous Texas state senator, John Carona. Billions of dollars flow through his fingers as he rams pro-HOA, anti-homeowner laws through his state legislature. But if a Georgia homeowner ‘likes’ his or her Associa-run neighborhood on FaceBook that homeowner just might win a 200 dollar prize.
Nah, I have to amend that: The neighborhood that racks up the most ‘likes’ can win a 200 dollar prize.
Oops! Let me amend that again: The neighborhood that wins, doesn’t get 200 dollars. It gets 200 dollars worth of ‘vendor services’. And it just so happens that Senator Carona and his Associa affiliates also own all the vendors which supply his own HOAs. It’s amazing the way this billionaire politician’s pockets are all connected with each other.
When a property manager offers something a board of directors will be making the decision on, I will assume the homeowners are going to get the short end of the stick. Obviously, this screams of an ulterior motive….sounds like bribery really. Has anybody checked to see if Facebook has some promotion for the most “Likes” for this time period? I’ve lived through such an HOA nightmare I am skeptical of every move they make. I don’t use the words “trust” and “homeowners association” in the same sentence.
