so in November 29th 2018 after 9yrs of running i finally won a board spot....now mind u iv been also challenging the previous elections....so after getting confirmation from the electioneer that i wn with 4 votes....so after a few days i go to the management office to obtain a board member packet or what ever u get when u get this position....after a going to the office it was closed so i waited till after Xmas break finally when i decide to go in the first week of January which was on a monday...so

Monday i go in only the assisted manager is there...
so i requested a few items: board member packet
list of current board members an email
and a copy of the membership list


just those 3 things....now mind u agin previous there has been no board meetings there having them over the phone with no proper notifications....so after the request the assist said she will ask the manager for this info...so she said come back the next day....

so i return on Tuesday....still no manager just assistant....so she proceeds to tell me the manger dont want to give me nothing and that the other bored members didn't want to have there email addresses....so i told the assist wtf this is odd....so the assist said come back next day....so i did...

so now Wednesday is here i get to the office an nobody is there so i come back later.....well i return later in afternoon and no go...office is closed....so i wait till Thursday.....


so Thursday roll around and agin no go...office not open...nobody responding to email or text or phone....so trust an believe im frustrated....so i wait till friday.....

well fridays here and i go to the office early and wut do u kno the manager is there....now as i walk in to sign in she is in there with 3 ppl....
the camera guy...
2 older women who was caught opening the ballots early
and the manager

now mind u i came in recording on my phone....but everyone remains still an quiet...
so i say hi i come in to conduct some business and the office has been closed...so she yells out from her deck THE OFFICE IS CLOSED!!! So i said when will it be open? she didnt respond....so i stood there fr a moment the said ok and i left....yes very erry situation....so as i left there were guys outside talkin to me about football well when i left i yelled to them COWBOYS!!! then i drove off....well later that day early afternoon i had to go get blood drawn....well while i was there i get a call from my daughter tellin me there are 7 police cars at my home and severed me a pink paper....so it had said i was 602ed from a property thinking to myself wtf did i do......

so later that evening i get home and i find out my HOA manager had get me banned from her HOA property where she live,work,office for our HOA, is at.....
so as im sittin there talkin about this i get 4 police cars that pull up....the LT says to me that he had to come and hear my side because the 602 she requested was odd and she said i had threatened her...but he knew if was BS because the video did show me doing nothing but standing in one place....she would not let him listen to adio which was super odd....now after the police leave i go see when the next meeting is which was january 17th of this month....so as days are passing i, trying to contact the other board member....but none were responding....now mind u this...

1ST..ONE BOARD MEMBER DOSNT LIVE IN OUR CITY AND IS NOT A HOME OWNER BUT A PROXY HOLDER FOR ANOTHER BOARD MEMBER....WHICH IS ILLEGAL PER DAVIS STERLING....

I think you got a bit gung-ho. First I've never heard of a "Board member" package. Unless that is special to your specific HOA. Not sure why your even dealing with the MC directly. Your on the HOA board not theirs. The MC works for the HOA. So you need to take your issues up with your HOA directly. Which means doing your best to find those 5 people. Which I doubt is a made up person by the MC. It's probably a former HOA member whom they proabably used years ago to put some bills names in.


How did this election thing even happen? Are you Developer controlled? When are the meetings? Do you have a copy of your documents? CC&R's and Articles of Incorporation are PUBLIC documents. So should be able to find them.

Think your going to learn a few things about being a board member... It ain't easy...

Sounds kinda nutty.

Very difficult to read “texty” sort of writing.

To the OP - this situation is almost impossible to understand. Perhaps you could calmly restate what occurred, without the caps and accusations and inuendo?

I agree with George here. Very confusing post.

You start out saying you have been trying to get elected for 9 years and finally happened. That is a record I bet and even beats HC who some thing is a little crazy as well.

Then up talk about it like it just happened till you mention that it has been going on for a year or more. You then mention that after your first year you run again for election. In Ca. All terms are for 2 years in HOAs so you should not have been on the ballot.

I am by no means Pro Manager all of the time. If they are Bad I am the first to tell them and say so publicly. In this case if they have been looking at you from across a table for 9 years as a homeowner and a frustrated owner and then suddenly you are on the board. They may have some reasons for concern.

It seems like you also came in Hot and Fast. Somebody has a problem and it may not be them. Your HOA seems a mess I think it may be more than you can handle at this point. Some things will drive you crazy if you let them.

Here's some background:

(started May 2019) https://www.hoatalk.com/Forum/tabid/55/forumid/1/postid/263897/view/topic/Default.aspx


RonS15 indicates:

-- it is a 236 unit condominium

-- the city took control of 90 of the units when "it was a bad area."

-- IDR was supposed to have happened in May, 2019

RonS15, what was the outcome of the IDR?

Is the condominium attorney involved at all in your exchanges with the board and management?

RonS15, you seem to have awareness of some laws that are being broken. But I agree with George that one of the problems here is how you communicate. I know people often become frustrated when others are not courteous (like apparently your condo's manager) and are not following the law and condominium governing documents. But to be as effective as possible, I think a person has to write in short, complete sentences. No capital letter words. No ellipses (that is, no "..."). No run-on sentences. No emoting. Believe me, the facts speak plenty loudly here without the emoting.

If the IDR did not work in May, make a list of violations, that you allege, of your condo's governing documents and the Davis-Stirling Act and post them here. Then I for one can maybe parse them and help you get another IDR. The IDR is required before you can do anything else.

Melissa, regarding Board Member Packages: We reside in a 105 home sub-association of a 9,000+ master association in North Texas.

Upon election or appointment to the board of either, the management company prepares a Board Member Binder which contains copies of all governing documents and amendments, current year budget, previous year EOY financial statement, current year meeting minutes and agendas, and tabs for future financial reports and miscellaneous documents.

We have served on the boards of two associations here, I served on one in northern California. All three have provided a binder of information to each new director.

I posted my response on the second copy of this question - since everyone's posting here, I'll repeat what I said...

After 9 years of running for a spot, it would seem to me you would have already known what happens after the election – did you go back to this “electioneer” and ask what happens next, who to contact, is there a board member’s packet, etc.? Have you asked any of your neighbors if they know anything? Were you there when the election took place? If so, did you talk to the people who were there?

I don’t know why, but I get the feeling you weren’t elected at all – either someone’s pulling a fast one (which isn’t appropriate at all) or there’s a massive communication breakdown on several fronts, including you. Write to the property manager, with a copy to the board, asking for the results of the last election – names of candidates, total number of people casting votes and a breakdown of how many votes went to each candidate. If you don’t get a response from the property manager, you’ll have to go to the people you know are board members (even if you don’t think they should be there).

You’ll have to get documentation of whatever happened in November before you can file a formal complaint or go to an attorney. To be blunt, if you’ve run for 9 years without success, it may be people simply won’t vote for you for whatever reason (and that’s their right).

Mark until a MC is an actual HOA member, they are always going to be a contractor to the HOA. They are a HIRED contractor. Stop acting like the MC IS the HOA. They are NOT. Get over your past of being the bestest ever MC that ever existed on earth.

ok so im not the best in articulating my situation lol...
but what im going through is real...

the manger first sends out notification of the annual elections, and how many spots are open,and the document for home owners who want to run and the election rules...

next after about a month another paper comes in stating who running and why they want to run...
and any other matter to vote on....

also in this packet is the ballot an envelopes needed to submit ur vote....thats how elections start....


next its not developer controlled....its individually owned...


the meetings are held every other month....supposedly....

i have all my documents and know them by heart...i also have a lot of Davis sterling things that back up what im trying to fight....

and i know everything about being a board member please understand that.....

NEXT QUESTION PLEASE.....

Does your HOA have an IDR procedure? If so, did it comply with it? If not, did the HOA comply with Civil Code 5915(b). See https://www.davis-stirling.com/HOME/Internal-Dispute-Resolution.

This is just too jumbled .... Ron needs to work to be logical with this thread, break this into pieces based on each issue.

Hopefully, this is not how he presents to the Board, members and management.

I am very confused. Electioneer? No meetings but to be held every other month? Where and when? I do not think you know what being a board member realy means in practice. If so, then you would not be having the issues your having. Which sounds like no other board member talks to you.

Okay so if you truly understand what it is to be a board member, then you know you are now one of them your accusing of doing wrong. Yeah. Your now on the board who is responsible for all the wrong doings you are accusing the HOA of. So your no longer on that other side of the table. Your at the table. So you have to LISTEN to others complaining about how you and your fellow board members do business.

You really do not know anything about being a board member if you don't get that... I was President for 3 years. I assure you no one knows fully how to be a board member. If they did, would this website exist?

The board is NOT for making sure to collect dues. There is so much more to it beyond that. That is just a small portion of what a HOA does.

I can no longer respond. It's that I am just beaster than you and everyone. Glad you can fight me and win. I feel like met a real competitor. Hope you have fun at church tomorrow... You can hear more about how Jesus's struggles are just like yours.

-------------------
Dear HOA Board,

Please provide me with your response by March 1, 2020.

Thank you,
