Our condo association
just held elections in which quorum was reached and all 5 board members were replaced. I am one of the new board members. I also have a copy of the election results with 2 witness signatures.
After the election was over, the 5 previous board members walked out of the room and allowed the newly elected board members to conduct the business of the association.
A few days later, a 15 year old corrected amendment was "found" stating that 2 of the ousted previous board members were entitled to another year on the board based on the election that happened the previous year and they didn't need to put their names on the ballot this year.
The 2 previous members have now claimed that they are still on the board and the property manager (and supposedly the association's lawyer that is not affiliated with the property manager) has sided with them and is not including me and the other newly elected board member on any communications to the board.
Can they get away with this if the 2 previous board members claim they didn't know about the corrected amendment with the 2 year terms? Isn't it the board member's job to know what the by-laws say? Both previous board members served on the board for over 5 years. There is no excuse for them not knowing about it.
If their names are XXXXX XXXXX ballot, they don't object to being on the ballot, they represent themselves as eligible for reelection to the residents at the time of the election, and if they allow the vote tally to take place, are their seats on the board fair game to get voted on by a quorum of the homeowners
