Cuca: What possessed you to agree to become the head of the homeowners’ association?
Emiliano: I’m just tired of all of the waste and not having a say. Our dues keep going up and there seems to be special assessments every year. I’m not even sure the association is following the bylaws anymore. I just felt I had to step up.
Cuca: That’s really admirable, but I hope you know what you’re getting into. There’s been a lot of mismanagement, and you’ll have to do battle with some entrenched members. They’re not going to look kindly on the tough questions you’ll be asking.
Emiliano: Believe me, I’m not looking forward to it, but it’s got to be done.
Cuca: Talk about a thankless job.
Emiliano: Don’t I know it. I guess I’m just a glutton for punishment!
