I’ll think we’ll see this Labor Day weekend if all the talk about “BEING PREPARED” really works. The warnings about hurricane Dorian are out and it seems to be aiming right at Central Florida. We can only hope that the news casters predicting this serious storm are about as wrong as they are normally with their political news.


But nevertheless: Everybody here in Florida should be prepared, because it really looks like some of us are getting hit really hard.


As you have seen on Eric’s blog on Monday, even the Florida legislature did its share [FS 718.1265(Condo Act) and FS 720.316 (HOA Act)].


Have a list of good contractors – just in case – and enough water and food. And remember: Our electrical supply system is about 50 years behind modern technology – meaning: Be prepared to lose electricity for quite a while if your area gets hit. Believe me, nothing has changed in the last few years. Even if your electrical power-lines are underground on your private property, the big supply lines are not.


GET READY and DUCK – and let’s pray that all goes well and Florida doesn’t suffer too much damage. STAY SAFE!

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:

Educational Website:

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 !
