By Joseph Morabito, Former member of the Coto de Caza board of directors.

November 16, 2006

Hello All: With the down turn in the real estate market, I will need to earn a few extra bucks to pay my 2005 and 2007 CZ dues increases that are the result of fiscal mismanagement. Given that the incompetent Varo/Mezger CZ Board has provided so much material, I have decided to write the hilarious book, HOA Management for Dummies. The chapters will be as follows: 

Chapter One – Bob & Jerry – Twiddle Dee and Twiddle DumbChapter

Two – Executive Director One – Grumpy Old Men – The Sequel

Chapter Three – Unless treated, VD can lead to insanity

Chapter Four – Laws, What Laws? Is there a shyster in the house?

Chapter Five – Property Management – Cards talk and numbers don’t lie unless they are never reported.

Chapter Six – FREE TREES - Such a deal!

Chapter Seven – Special Assessment – Just Kidding

Chapter Eight - Must be Arizona just over the hill – A case for global warming

Chapter Nine - Board Member Conflict of Interest – For Love and Money

Chapter Ten – Giving away HOA revenues to avoid “non-existent” taxes

Chapter Eleven – Legal Agreements – Poof - Now you see them, now you don’t

Chapter Twelve –  CHP – To be or not to be – Lawsuits on our streets

Chapter Thirteen – Firing the largest security company in the world and hiring the smallest. Nothing Universal about it.

Chapter Fourteen – Piggies at the trough – Subsidies and other give-aways

Chapter Fifteen – Conclusion - Rich people must be stupid.
With a little work, I may be able to turn HOA Management for Dummies into a best seller given all the master planned communities in the US . I like to write. So why shouldn’t I make a few bucks off all the fiascos we have experienced with Varo/Mezger? Joe Morabito
