The Laguna Woods Village’s GRF is not the boss of you!


What legal rights and options does the United and Third Mutual Board restructuring plan have in declaring financial independence from GRF?

All the residents are part of two non-profit 528 corporations Third and United 528 Corporations. GRF is nothing more than our janitor or watch dog over our property.
GRF answers to us only - not PCM.

Past history tells us that maybe we don't need either PCM or GRF. Why can't we be like all the other (millions)  non-profit corporations and handle our own corporate business. We could save approximately $200 dollars a month on our assessments. See attachment and decide if it worth the effort and risk.

The U.S.Cost of Living Index has barely changed in the last ten years but our assessment have skyrocketed to $1,920 a year more for United and Third is $2,640 more than in 2003.

Don't forget they gave away somewhere around $50 million (being investigated) in illegal land sales, $9,400 million in Bonus Incentive Programs, $1 million in PCM credit card debt, and destroyed our Globe Icon worth $300 thousand and millions in PCM contractor compensation packages.

I don't know where this " Don't forget they gave away somewheres around $50 million (being investigated)  "  came from but my understanding is the Investigation is over.  Remember both Third and United declined to further investigate and accepted a secret deal with PCM. That said there is no doubt we were ripped off by PCM. When Milt Johns sued PCM and vis versa some of the transcripts were available on the OC Superior court web site. Milt as well as Bob Hatch and another board president ( can't remember his name ) under oath said the boards did not know about the bonus plan. When it came out in the press that the head of PCM and Milt went to New Orleans and paid for hookers on the credit cards charged to us, I thought for sure people would now rise up but not a word. We do not need PCM and GRF has become an arm of PCM. Rise up people. We as share holders are supposed to have power over the boards. Our homes are our investments and LWV is supposed to be run for our benefit not PCMs or members of GRF. GRF is a prime example of cronyism.
