ONLY DISHONEST DIRECTORS ARE IN THE CROSSHAIRS
Published March 1, 2019
honest director should support this bill. The only ones who have
to fear this bill are the ones who are not “serving” the
community, but abuse their elected office for personal gain.
I have said it many
times: Every person robbing a bank here in Florida is a total
idiot. He may get $20.000 or $30.000, but that’s it! Most banks
don’t have much cash at their branches nowadays. And if you do,
the FBI is after you and if you get caught you go to jail for a
long time. Just get elected to a board and it’s easy to embezzle
huge amounts of money, or to get “green” kickbacks from a
contractor, because there is barely any oversight. Even if you
get caught, you most likely will end up with a slap on the
wrist. Remember the
THE PARKER PLAZA SCAM?
Not one of the guilty guys went to jail!
This bill is
supposed to make serious changes to the way criminals are
treated in condominiums. The author of the bill obviously forgot
about the fact that more than 2.5 million homeowners (also
called the stepchildren of the Florida legislature)
in HOAs (FS 720) are dealing with exactly the same problems as
the condo owners
Let’s make it very
clear: This bill targets the scumbags, the folks who use an
elected office to enrich themselves at the expense of their
neighbors, often elderly people who came to Florida to enjoy
their retirement, not in order to be scammed by some scumbags!
||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
