Washington is all full of surprises – wouldn’t you say?

Now the Democrats want to remove a president from office who no longer is in office, costing taxpayers millions of dollars for another impeachment scam. It’s just a stupid propaganda campaign to smear our President’s name.


It’s a little different in community associations. Even if the board can remove a president from office by simple majority vote, the president is still a board member with one vote on the board.


Only the membership who elected this now former president to the board, can remove him/her from the board. But in community associations it doesn’t require lengthy speeches – many words, no facts and false accusations – to remove the board member, it just takes a recall petition signed by 50% + 1 of the voting membership. It’s as easy as 1, 2 , 3 if all the necessary steps required by the statutes are followed to the dot [see: FS 718.112(2)(j), FS 719.106(f) + FS 720.303(10)].


In community associations it may take two steps to remove a president from power, and it’s up to the membership to take the necessary steps, not some voting machines and/or foreign powers.


If you live in a community association in Florida, make sure that your board president – and the board members -- are making the right decisions and follow the laws and the governing documents.


NEVER FORGET: A bad president supported by a useless board (in Washington called House of Representatives) can ruin your private finances in a heart-beat. Make sure to remove them from office while in office – the legal way!

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!

The organization has two websites to inform interested Florida homeowners and condo owners:

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 !
