Comment from: “time for the good and honest people to win” to “Robert Wilt”
Bob, I don’t think it is too late, as you fear. You have a number of solid “aces” to work with. The existence of other properties that violate the law does not hurt our current fight because they serve to underline the kind of miscarriage of justice that cannot be allowed to happen yet again. As you say, bit by bit, the city and our board allowed wealthy developers to take advantage of us, and literally steal from us our property values. As these wealthy developers, like Hardial Sibia, get richer by breaking the law, we everday people get poorer because our property values are eroded. It is an unfair and illegal transfer of wealth. The Hardial Sibia hotel is the last straw—if his hotel is allowed to be put on Leisureville’s back, our community’s back WILL be broken this time. Bob, you are engaged in what is perhaps Leisureville’s greatest battle, and we must not even consider yielding—we cannot lose, and we will win—right is so very much on our side.

I would like to hear from other condo association presidents or board members.
I was told at a recent meeting that the master has nothing to do with us. The board has also abandoned my building as far as the hotel impact.
Can we meet and just share experiences and possibly help one another?

Why is it that so many Board members, in not only our Association, but Associations everywhere, once elected seem to set them selves apart from the people they are supposed to serve? This is, of course, a generalization, but this phenomenon does seem to prevail. I think that the homeowners should be the main event, and that those in service to the community need to remember just that: they are in service to the community.
