"Throw the bums out". After all, HOAs, we are always told, are the closest and purest form of democracy there is. We are also asked to believe that people choose to live in an HOA because it gives them more control over their immediate surroundings. And, if those in charge, do not honor their commitments of being the leaders that a well run, open and friendly development purports to be, the answer is to vote them out of office. What could be simpler? No need for laws, oversight, proper police protection or any other nonsense that keeps the real world on an even keel. Just toss the bums out. But what is wrong with that concept? And just how well does it work in the real world?

On The Commons with us this week is Valmore R. Lucier. Val, author of Condo Board Election Revolt: How Florida's First Condo Ombudsman Became the 500 pound Gorilla. has the distinct honor of being the first volunteer, and to date the only licensed, election monitor for Florida condos. As a monitor he ensured that the elections in condos were carried out properly and that the laws regulating elections were strictly adhered to. He served in this position for a little over a year. Please join us On The Commons. We'll talk about his experiences as an election monitor and find out whether democracy really is alive and well and thriving in Florida's many condominiums.
