Dear Mister Condo,
Mister Condo replies:
M.N., I am sorry that your community association has found it necessary to hold a special unit owners meeting to recall a Board member. It is important that you follow proper protocol when doing so. I asked one of my attorney pals who specializes in Connecticut community association law for his opinion. Here’s what the attorney had to offer:
“Unless your bylaws say otherwise, no one person can hold more than 15% of the total votes in the association by undirected proxies – that is, proxies which give the person discretion in how to vote them or say nothing about how to vote them – but there is no limit on the number of proxies a person can hold which direct that person how to vote on a particular issue.”
That sounds like good advice to me, M.N.. All the best!
