The Idiots in Brighton Lakes HOA!

guest blog by Nila Ridings

Homeowner Carol Dietrick is handicapped but gets around great on her mobility scooter.
Now, her HOA claims her husband’s truck which is equipped with a wheelchair lift is a commercial vehicle! And they’re threatening to fine Carol’s landlord.

WFTV-TV in Central Florida reports that the HOA could be in violation of federal law. Talk about understatements!

Carol…take your camera and get some pix of the rear ends of every board member’s car. Betcha you’ll see lots of commercial logos like…. Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, Honda, Toyota, Subaru, and maybe even Cadillac. That’s all advertising. 

You’ll see stickers for places like Bob’s Buy Here Pay Here, One Minute Motors, or Kick Me To Kissimmee Auto Plaza. Those photos will be proof positive that every board member’s car is a commercial vehicle. See if those same board members wear Tommy Hilfiger shirts or New Balance shoes…. more advertising. And don’t miss the bonus shot of Florida dealer tags on license plates. Again, blatant advertising. 

Your lawsuit could be a humdinger!

I’m convinced we need a 12 Step program for HOA board members. They constantly prove they can’t help themselves when it comes to lust for power, and addiction to stupidity.
