Senator Mike Schnieder

Hosted and produced by Shu Bartholomew, On The Commons is a weekly radio show dedicated to discussing the many issues surrounding mandatory homeowner associations, the fastest growing form of residential housing in the nation.

The Founders of this country knew that without some restraints, a governing body could easily overstep their power and become abusive.   So with foresight and understanding they adopted The Bill of Rights.  These rights were designed to limit the powers of the government and protect the citizens from their governments.  Unfortunately these limits do not extend to what some now call, “private governments” or mandatory membership homeowner associations.  Over the years, homeowners in HOAs have asked for oversight.  Are they getting what they asked for? 
On The Commons with Shu this week is Senator Mike Schneider. Senator Schneider from Nevada was one of the first legislators to propose an ombudsman.  Over the years, the ombudsman’s office has seen many changes and has taken on several different forms.  Please join us On The Commons.  We’ll find out how well the program has worked and we’ll learn some surprising information about the hearing panel that has become a part of the overall oversight program in Nevada.  You won’t want to miss this one.
