Since the inception of HVLUnited and the Forum, the theme has been to divide the community of Hidden Valley Lake

 

They succeeded in making the golf course a wedge issue; they constantly cast doubt on the financial worthiness of the association; and make unfounded accusations to cast doubt on the past performance of any Director or employee of the Association. They have presented facts dishonestly, such as; by combining the costs of the golf operations and Food & Beverage into the same expense total and blaming it all on golf. They also present the Bad Debt issue as if it were not an accumulated debt that has compiled to this figure over the lifetime and they never bother to separate out how much was actually the base of the debt and how much is bookkeeping such as adding interest which is just a bookkeeping figure and allows for a greater tax write off. And they claim itís all about money, ďYOUR moneyĒ

 

On October 24th they wrote to their supporters:

        This simply cannot continue - HVLA has gone from horribly dysfunctional - to absolutely broken.

        Things are so broken in this Association that even a Board of Directors consisting of seven Abraham Lincolns would soon find themselves facing a recall.

        We need to transition to a more effective form of governance, and there are only three necessary steps needed to accomplish this surprisingly achievable goal:

 

Now Iíve read this and Iím looking at our HOA and saying to myself, wow, we are in pretty good shape considering we have been so mismanaged all of these years. How is it we are still solvent and no one is in jail? Our GC is still playable, and all of our other common areas and amenities are in reasonably good shape, at least none are red tagged, as far as I know, so I wonder how our operation would stand up to an incorporated municipality like Lakeport? We are similar in population size and both in Lake County so how do we compare with the County Seat?

 

What do they, the citizens of Lakeport, have we donít have and how much more efficiently do they operate their corporation?

 

If you believe HVLUnited then HVLA should show up as a complete and total embarrassment, right? We should appear as a bunch of buffoons, a place where the monkeys are running the zoo.

 

Letís start with the Budget.

So what do we at HVLA have?

 

We have an HOA, that is area-wise, 3 times the size of the city of Lakeport, that provides for its residents more services for less money for a fact!

 

So how HVLUnited or anyone else can arrive at the conclusion that HVLA has been mismanaged and broken is just not sincere.

 

It is fear mongering!

 

You can spin it however you want but the truth is the truth.

 

Just remember, in our HOA you have access to every aspect of the Association that your homeowners fees pay for; whether you take advantage of it is your personal choice.

 

Everyone who lives outside of our gates, their environment is being subsidized by us and every other American to some degree or another and they in general do not have access. The city of Lakeport could not survive without other peopleís money in the form of State and Federal monies and grants and thatís when they tell you how you will spend it too.

 

Many Cities have gone bankrupt but we are solvent and we should be proud of what we have accomplished.

 

We should not be being divided for some nefarious reason only the owners of HVLUnited know.

 

I feel comfortable in saying, as long as we stay the course and turn a deaf ear to those who seem to want to destroy this HOA we will be successful in our future endeavors.

 

We are living in one of the best places in the State of California, letís be proud of what we have.

 

All this talk about ďBrokenĒ is a load of you know what. We are not Broken and we have to spread the word. The truth is out and HVLUnited needs to go.

 

Yes we can.

 

Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukah
