Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
I'm sorry to say that if the board has opted to impose the assessment, then you must pay. A condo association is a democracy, and apparently a majority of condo owners has determined that it is in the owners' best interests to use RCN for everybody. There is no legal action that you can take to challenge the assessment. Accordingly, your recourse is to either (1) convince the board to change it's mind (which may include simply voting out that board and voting in a new board), or (2) moving to a condo building that shares your beliefs with regard to the owners' individual choices for services like cable.
I am truly sorry that my answer is bad news for you, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than an honest response. However, if your concerns were not satisfactorily addressed, then please let me know, and I will be happy to clarify my answer.
