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, HOAlaws are a set-up for abuse-ofpower & rule-by-a-few.

-- For Critical-Thinkers and Deeper-Thinkers in HVLA
As we search for the “heart” of HVLA’s problems, up pops more info and there’s a different slant. Recent info suggests one of our observations is closest to reality: HVLA has been “run” by a small group since its inception. This group believes it has “ownership” over HVLA and is “entitled” to run it, regardless! Over 45 years, they have carved inroads-of-influence that impact every aspect of OUR Association. Among their “accomplishments”: Control of most Boards, funds diverted TO golf and AWAY from everything else, elimination of GM’s and other “undesirable” leaders, hiring “favorable” staff, insuring family/friends get jobs/contracts, ostracizing and harassing any challengers, rigging elections, creating an “idyllic” (false) image of HVLA and keeping most members in-the-dark about actual Assn. performance. There ARE other problems, but they flow-from this source. Like most “power groups” this one are neighborhood-bullies. They are “paper-tigers”, or growling chihuahuas. None-the-less, they still Reign. HVLA has become like a huge “dysfunctional family!” Members must regain control. How? See “Solutions.” Plus, more to come…..
