HOA REFORM BILL PART II IS DEAD

GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT WITH THE HELP OF SPEAKER WEATHERFORD UNCEREMONIOUSLY KILLED OUR HOA REFORM BILL. HE HAS DICTATORIAL POWERS -- MANY CALLS AND E-MAILS COULDN'T CHANGE HIS MIND. SCOTT HAD HIS SAY NOW -- WE HAVE OUR SAY ON NOVEMBER 4.

REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN WE HAD A GOVERNOR WHO WAS CONCERNED ABOUT THE WELFARE OF FLORIDA'S CITIZENS AND HELPED US TO PASS OWNER-FRIENDLY COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION BILLS?
