Taxation w/o Representation

The situation at the P@P is that HOA and AOAO represent a minority interest in the resort. Steve's point is well taken that most of the deeded owners don't realize they are part owners of the resort. It has always frustrated me that people don't take an active interest in the care and feeding of this piece of paradise.

Hopefully this will be a wakeup call to the apathetic deeded owners to get involved and take an interest in what is going on.

Looking at some of the other sites that have threads on the subject (Facebook and Redweek.com) this has been a wake-up call for the Trust members as well. There are post from owners at KBR wondering why they are paying for repairs at P@P, they don't even go there. The reason is simple: you agreed to it when you surrendered your deed. I suspect that the Trustees are also going to get a dose of frustration as well.

The subtlies of the organizational relationships that Steve has pointed out (several times) is the way we should deal with this. It is difficult for people to appreciate this because the pervaiseness of DRI thoughout the VOA/AOAO, the Trustees, and the Management Company. IMHO it is the organizational equivalent of a Mobius Strip!

If you read the letter to the owners that accompanies the MF, the DRI is never mentioned.

The bottom line nothing is going to change until the VOA/AOAO represents the majority interest in the resort. That is never going to happen unless apathetic owners get off their duffs and get proactive. We can always hope!

They are still fighting Diamond over the Point at Poipu Special Assessment for water intrusion.
