Don’t try to influence your association’s election by stating that if a certain person is elected, you or your management company will cancel its contract. While it’s not illegal to seek to influence association elections, generally it’s inappropriate for community association managers, whether they’re on-site employees or representatives of a management company, to try to sway an election.

In some cases, there may be some “history” between a board candidate and a manager. There are some people who simply will never be able to get along. If you feel that the election of one individual will prevent you from doing your job properly, then you should probably resign. Of course, you must follow the procedures in your contract.
