PREPARED FOR HURRICANE SEASON?
Published May 29, 2020
We were clearly not prepared to deal with
COVID-19, so let's make sure we are prepared for the upcoming
Atlantic hurricane season starting Monday, June1.
That's according to the calendar, but the
weather clearly didn't care about the calendar. We already had
two named storms this year -- storms that missed Florida.
I assume that most of you are hurricane "veterans"
-- meaning you already experienced a few hurricanes.
A hurricane is bad enough and can do lots of
damage. But nothing is worse than not being prepared when the
hurricane closes in on your area.
Remember the empty shelves in the paper
aisles in your store at the beginning of the Pandemic? That's
exactly how the battery and water bottle shelves look like when
the hurricane advisory tells you that the storm will hit your
area within 24 hours.
Make sure you are prepared when the next
hurricane hits. It's not a matter of "IF", it's
just a matter of "WHEN".

'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
