Recently a story ran in The Island Packet about a couple who were forced by developer Pulte Homes from their community, The Haven, in Bluffton, SC. Some of the comments to the on-line article are as enlightening as the article itself.

As the article points out, federal law, the Housing for Older Persons Act, allows PRIVATE developer, Pulte Homes, to rule over the community with tyrannical impunity. A majority of the Haven’s governing community association board of directors are Pulte employees.

Another Pulte community, Sun City Hilton Head, is located only a couple of miles from The Haven. Like the Haven, Sun City Hilton Head, which is going on 15 years old, and 7,000 homes, is governed by a community association board of directors, the majority of which are Pulte employees. http://peretired.blogspot.com/ documents the dishonest, reckless and arrogant actions of Pulte Homes at Sun City Hilton Head.

My question for you is this: Do you think that in a free United States of America, that a dishonest, reckless and arrogant PRIVATE company, Pulte Homes, should be able to exercise such tyrannical control over communities?

I don’t. I respectfully request that Congress investigate the matter of PRIVATE companies exercising tyrannical control over US citizens under the authority of the Housing for Older Persons Act. I look forward to your response.
