Default POA or VHA

Can someone explain the goals and differences between the POA and VHA homeowner groups? I am trying to decide which group I should join. My husband and I are new homewowners in The Villages. Thanks in advance for all constructive and informative information.

The VHA has never sued the developer.

The VHA is on the side of the Developer, the POA is on the side of the homeowner

Yep.

Only one tries to educate, investigate and pull back the curtain to expose facts and the truth...in an effort to protect homeowners.

Hint: It's not the VHA.

Read a couple of recent news letters from each. You'll see the big difference.

One is a cheering section, the other is a nit picking league--neither will benefit the individual homeowner--just be happy we're not controlled by a real HOA/POA--or a bunch of condo commandoes

The POA is totally independent from the developers. The VHA is developer supported. Both groups have a place in the discussion, and offer positive thing to homeowners. I am a supporting member of the POA, as I believe that group is looking out for my best interest.

I don't like the POA.

I will have to give them another look. I also could be wrong about all the fracas about the taxes. Maybe I'll just jump off Morse Bridge....and skin my knees. sigh.

Neither one has put any money in my pocket or influenced me to buy or sell here. Each has its purpose. I tend to read the POA more so than the VHA.

The POA distribution by throwing it around the neighborhood bothers me. Very little litter in our neighborhood until the POA gets published. Mail it, distribute at stores, but cut the litter!
