I think we said enough about the problems of MASTER ASSOCIATIONS: Itís always very problematic to serve two masters.


I have a different topic that is very important to me and millions of Floridaís homeowners and condo-owners: The UPCOMING LEGISLATIVE SESSION.


We have published our wish list for this session at: www.hoareformbill.net .


These are mostly HOA reforms, but two important bills for condos have already been filed.


Florida's legislative session will convene on March 2, 2021 and will (if on schedule) adjourn on April 30, 2021. This week was so-called committee week. So far two community association bills have been filed: S 56 (Senator Ana Maria Rodriguez R-Miami) and SB 630 (Senator Dennis Baxley R-Ocala). For details go to our website. We are busy talking with "friendly" legislators about our Reform Bill Wish-List.


Main issues: Elections, Liens for Fines, Mandatory Education and Political Signs.


Fair Elections should be in the interest of anybody in this country, considering that there are still lots of investigations and lawsuits pending looking into election fraud. With our momentary election laws in place for HOAs a sitting board can legally win the election, because it's possible to eliminate any competition without them even having the chance to really challenge the sitting board members. And if all fails they can always blackmail any opposition by levying fines and filing liens, stopping opposing owners from even being able to be a candidate.


Just read the bill proposals on our HOA/CONDO REFORM BILL WEBSITE.


If you want to help pushing these important bills for homeowners, please contact me by e-mail at: jan@ccfj.net. We all need to talk to our local legislators in order to help to push this bill. Next week is a great time because all legislators and their legislative assistants are back home from Tallahassee.

Jan Bergemann Jan Bergemann is president of Cyber Citizens For Justice, Florida 's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group. CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in community  

associations. He moved to Florida 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 Tallahassee - 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 Florida 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 in Florida !
