Is there any
restriction on a president from writing a monthly column in the
association's newsletter if he
is running for election? It
would seem if he stuck to general matters there should be no problem.
If the president sticks to
matters, he can continue writing the column. However, "if any candidate
member advocating a point of view is provided access to association . . .
newsletters . . . during a campaign, for purposes that are reasonably
that election, equal access shall be provided to all candidates and
advocating a point of view." (Civ. Code §5105(a)(1)
