What can we do to stop them from harrassing us?
Expert:  P. Simmons replied 1 year ago.

Thank you

You could notify the rest of the board of directors...if the president is not acting in the best interests of the association, the remaining board members may be able to take action to remove the president from the board.

And you can let others in your community know about this...public outcry on this may put pressure on the board/president to stop this silliness.

You can seek to have someone else elected when it comes time for election.

Finally, if the presidents harassment is harming you, you could consider a lawsuit against him for harassment
