In January of this year the treasurer of our HOA discovered multiple ATM withdrawals made from casinos in the financial statements. He confronted the holder of the ATM card who is the president, Ed Swenson. Mr. Swenson refused to resign. the board at that time thought that Mr. Swenson had paid back the almost $2,000.00 because that is what the management company told them....yet no proof of repayment was offered. The board decided to not censure Mr. Swenson. The community then decided to recall Mr. Swenson. Mr. Swenson then hired Mr. Adams of Adams & Kessler. There was a secret meeting called at the management company office (Personalized Property Management). The attorney was there as well as the manager of PPM Mr. Shuey. Basically intimidation practices were used to try to silence myself and the treasurer. The treasurer was fired.
During the period of time since, Mr. Adams has aided Mr. Swenson in the use of financial intimidation against this elderly community. Mr. Swenson has gone door to door intimidating the elderly residents and threatening to sue them and take their homes away. Mr. Swenson has published the names of the people who signed the recall petition in a way that made them seem like a "small group of trouble makers". Mr. Swenson has issued restraining orders against the homeowners associated with the recall, and has issued strange non compliance with architectural variance rules against us as well. These homeowners then had to hire and pay for an attorney, find their way to court, find transportation, and go throught the stress of all of this. For sale signs started to appear.
Mr. Adams used the cumulative voting procedure to help Mr. Swenson beat the recall.
At this time Mr. Swenson still has that ATM card in his pocket and still has access to our funds. The homeowners have had to pay thousands of dollars to Mr. Adams. We are totally helpless in this.
