While this blogger continues to be hypercritical of uninformed reporters, sometimes they actually do get it right when it comes to rogue HOAs.
At the links listed below, reporters and anchors with the ABC affiliate in Mesa, Arizona, knew how to ask the right questions and expose the contemptible HOA president of the Superstition Lakes Condos.
Seems that president Michael Cassady has asked his treasurer for lots of unusual ‘reimbursements’ supposedly for HOA board meetings. Things like vodka. Laundry detergents. Big restaurant bills. More liquor. In two years, $38,000 worth.
Then there’s the reimbursement for nearly six hundred dollars for ‘gate repairs’. But officials with the company listed on the receipt says they never repaired any gates for Cassady or the Homeowners Association.
This kind of thing goes on in HOAs across the country. And HOA board officers continue to insist that homeowners do not have the right to see the books and discover how their mandatory dues are being spent.
That’s what’s so beautiful about a society with a free press. Once in a while it can pry open some secrets.
