QUESTION: I had a temper tantrum and resigned last summer after a dispute with another director. At our annual election, homeowners voted for me as a write-in, so I was elected. I just received a letter from our management company that says the "nomination is considered invalid due to my resignation." Can they keep me off the board?
ANSWER: Your resignation from the board does not disqualify you from being elected to future boards. As provided for in Civil Code §5105(a)(3), qualified candidates may nominate themselves to serve on the board.
