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.
Much like a bunch of dominoes artfully set up in neat, precise rows, our entire economy is failing.  Knock one domino over and you have a chain reaction and they all fall, one after the other.  Pull the rug out from under one industry and they all come tumbling down.  It is no surprise that times are tough all around.  And in time past, when things got bad families, friends and communities rallied around and endured the bad times together.  But times they are a changing.  Communities, once the glue that  kept everything together, appear now to be exacerbating some of the problems. 
On The Commons this week we are joined by Jan Bergemann.  Jan, President of the Florida based Cyber Citizens for Justice, is the “go – to” person in Florida when people have problems with their associations.  He maintains a couple of web pages, www.ccfj.net and ccfjedu.net and is a wealth of knowledge about all things related to association issues.  Please join us On The Commons.  We will talk about the problems that seem to arise right from the very beginning when a developer gets into trouble to the problems that arise as foreclosed properties grow in number and the remaining homeowners decide they can no longer shoulder all the “common” expenses.
