Some episodes of On the Commons are just too good to leave in the archives. On The Commons with me this week (November 6, 2004)is Tom Skiba. Tom is the Chief Executive Officer of the Alexandria, Virginia based Community Associations Institute, (CAI). Please join us On The Commons. We’ll find out why CAI condones the abuses and has opposed any reforms on the power to foreclose. We’ll talk about why they feel associations would collapse without the ability to wield so much power over their members and whether they have any plans to protect the homeowners they claim to represent.
