We have owned on Marco for three years now (home, not condo) and are still confused about why we need an organization of well-meaning neighbors to take care of our interests when we have an elected city council.
We read comments in this discussion that sound like "don't expect council to look after our interests." Huh? They're elected ... presumably by a majority of us. If we don't like their decisions we should change the makeup of council. Something we can't do with MICA. The dialog that suggests elected councillors won't look out for our interests mirrors the one we hear from our Republican friends who find it utterly incomprehensible that a Democrat is sitting in the White House. They seem to feel that we need something better than democracy to protect our interests.
Well, we don't. Democracy ain't perfect but it's a whole lot better than the alternatives. Which include unelected, unknown neighbors who want to tell me what my house should look like and mandate me to pay for the privilege.
