HOA “Government” 
    HOA Owner Rights
The HOA “movement” began in the late 1960’s as a way to get around civil-rights laws. Now, HOA member discrimination is “hidden in plain sight.” HOA’s promise environmental-controls, security & amenities. But, HOA laws are a set-up for abuse-of power & rule-by-a-few.

 How should we measure progress in HVLA?  The old standard = list projects accomplished. These are relevant and important. But, what about “improvements” to how HVLA interacts with and how it serves members? What about “improvements” in “Best HOA Practices”, representing the “best interests” of members and creating a greater sense of “Community?”  Do any of our “Leaders” think in these terms? It’s nice-to-know about dam repair and new sirens. But aren’t those things that should have been done in-any-event? Simply because we paid for them?  HVLA’s record is dismal when it comes to meeting members’ needs for a greater sense of effectiveness/efficiency in governance, and, in creating a more engaging sense-of-community. Members are STILL coerced: (1) To pay for the losses of a PUBLIC, FOR-PROFIT Golf Ops.; (2) To accept conflicts-of-interest from Directors who clearly represent a specific small group; (3) To tolerate the bad behaviors of a small clique of other members who want their way and will threaten our membership as a whole; and, Most Of All, (4) To accept a governance process that allows all of this to continue.  New and existing Directors who also want these changes…..Here’s Your Mandate!
