WHAT A JOKE!
Published January 10, 2020
John Cortes, in his last year as a state representative, filed
three HOA bills (
235 ) – none of them makes any sense. Giving these bills
any committee hearings would just be a waste of time. The
provisions in these bills are so ridiculous that they could be
used for Saturday Night Live, but not for a
serious legislative session.
Cortes has shown in his 6 years as state representative that he
has absolutely no clue what he is doing. Now he wants to be
elected as the Clerk of Court in Osceola County. His bills are
nothing more than a campaign gimmick to impress the Osceola
County voters, who he obviously hopes will not understand what
kind of nonsense his bill would create.
It is just a shame
that we elect such incompetent people to represent our interest.
But if you are

filed that make sense, please go to:
SUMMARY ANALYSIS OF BILLS
Starting next week
we will see where these bills are going. To the Governor’s
desk or to the trashcan?
||Jan Bergemann is president of Cyber Citizens For Justice,
's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group.
CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in
associations. He moved to
in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the
developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues
for his own purposes. End of retirement!
CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in
- finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a
member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.
The organization has two websites to inform interested
homeowners and condo owners:
News Website: http://www.ccfj.net/.
Educational Website: http://www.ccfjfoundation.net/.
We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all
service providers surely have a different interest! We are
trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are
useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking
