WE DODGED A BULLET!
Published September 6, 2019
Letís be honest: We dodged a serious bullet when DORIAN
failed to make landfall here in Florida.
I guess that most of you saw pictures of the devastating damages
Dorian created on the Bahamas. That are pictures of horror!
Letís face it: The power of hurricanes has increased in the last
few years Ė and itís not a matter of ďIFĒ, but a matter of when
such a category 5 hurricane actually hits Florida.
The question: Are you really prepared for a hurricane that might
hit you one day with such a force?
In my opinion Dorian was a serious warning about things that may
come in the future.
||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
