Violence in HOA’s

Opinion

Lola Lauri

From an article in the Seattle Times:

Who would want to subject themselves to such friction by being part of a homeowners’ board? Some are genuinely drawn by the opportunity to volunteer, McKenzie said. But others relish the chance to wield influence over the neighborhood.

“Associations are seen as the bad guys,” Feingold said. “They’ve got a rap for being overreaching and overbearing. In America, we have `My home is my castle.’ You’re really challenging that proposition.”

Read the whole article here.  Also, another HOA tragedy, here

We have had members threaten violence at the annual meeting, and at the monthly open meetings.  Most times they are simply asked to leave and escorted out.  I have often expressed my concerns over our Association not taking these things seriously enough.  Let’s not wait for a tragedy here before we take action when someone threatens violence in our community.

A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can. Why compare one against the other? Each one is different. Each one is special. Each one is beautiful.
