It’s not often that I post blogs from lawyers or law firms in the HOA industry. But when one of them truly ‘gets it’, they deserve praise. Jean Winters, an attorney who frequently blogs and answers questions in Florida’s Sun Central, occasionally shows a spark of brilliance. I’d be dishonest if I didn’t pass such material along.
Please, please consider signing the petition to restore Constitutional law to our private neighborhoods, HOAs, CIDs, POAs. This is not a radical petition. It’s only a request that our federal government allow homeowners access to Constitutional rights that they inadvertantly signed away while signing their mortgage papers.
As stated before in the blog, George Staropoli’s petition is not radical, it’s only common sense. Protect your rights. Restore your rights. Please read George’s letter COPIED below.

From George Staropoli:
To the national advocate leadership:
Thanks for your efforts, now and in the past. This petition is for all of us!
We need only 150 signatures in order to have the petition appear on the We the People website for all to see. The turnout is dismal. Once we get on the site we can then expect a large response from those truly concerned about the state of our Constitution.
I need your help to get to those 150 petitions. Please urge the people on your lists to get busy and sign the petition. Tell them in your own words why we must get the FEDS’ attention. This is not democrat/republican or conservative/liberal! This our American system of constitutional government created by the Founding Fathers without reference to any political party! This support from Washington is a legitimate function of our Federal government, especially since the long history of state legislative failures to uphold the Constitution demands federal intervention.
We only have 30 days to get to 25,000 petitions, otherwise we have lost a very important inroad to Washington and the national scene. And CAI will be laughing its ass off if we fail. It is extremely important that you, the national leadership, urge support for the petition.
BTW, most of you know, but my new book, “Neighbors At War,” has been out for two weeks and sales have already started! I duplicate this blog over on my website, NeighborsAtWar.com Just click on the HOA HELL button to reach all these same blog posts. You can purchase my book from the webpage, or buy it on Amazon. Just run “Ward Lucas” in the book section and it should pop up.
LOL! Forgive me, but I’m corrupt enough to use any kind of inflammatory headline to get you to read deeper. And no, of course you are not dummies…UNLESS you refuse to consider signing the petition to the White House composed by George Staropoli, a man who is a giant in the world of HOA reason and Constitutionalism.
The left is all abuzz about a few on the right who are proposing seceeding from the Republic because of the results of the last election. First, those well-meaning people have an absolute right to propose secession to express their opinion. Second, secession won’t work, that’s what national elections are all about. If you don’t like it, vote for someone new in the next election. Just change it.
The HOA world is buzzing about a multimillion dollar lawsuit filed against the Henderson, Nevada Police Department. It’s a lawsuit that could throw a massive punch in the face of the American HOA movement, especially those which use coersive tactics to intimidate HOA critics.
This really is a wild case. Two elderly residents of Sun City Anthem HOA in Nevada, tried to warn other homeowners that the board was illegally stashing millions of dollars of excess dues instead of returning them to residents. Any organization that doesn’t report such excess collections can face heavy IRS fines.
