Adams Stirling PLC


QUESTION: Do homeowners have any rights when it comes to having their views published in the association's newsletter?

ANSWER: Not really. Just like your local newspaper, you cannot demand that your opinions be published in the newspaper. The editor can pick and choose which "letters to the editor" are published. Members have other avenues for making their views known. They can (i) speak during the open forum at board meetings, (ii) publish and distribute their own newsletter, and (iii) set up a website to publish their views.

Campaign Exception. If, however, any candidate or member is allowed to publish something in the association's newsletter during a campaign, then equal access must be given to all candidates and members advocating a point of view on the issue.

ASSISTANCE: Associations needing legal assistance can contact us. To stay current with issues affecting community associations, subscribe to the Davis-Stirling Newsletter.
