QUESTION: My building has a common room that is used daily by people playing cards, mah jongg, etc., and I do believe people who don’t live in the building participate in some of these games. We recently allowed a resident to have a meeting in the room as well. Afterward, another resident requested use of the room for a meeting that would possibly have a few people who don’t live in the building. They asked for an application. I denied this person’s request to use the room, and informed the individual that the association attorney was in the process of writing rules for the room’s use, and the board did not want residents using it for meetings about issues the board does not approve of. Prior to this, for a few years, this individual’s wife was on a committee, and a few weeks after this incident, the board president met with her to tell her that her committee was no longer needed and was being eliminated. That same week, the board president organized a group to do the same activity the individual’s wife’s committee was doing. The couple has sent us a formal letter stating they feel singled-out by the board, and discriminated against. Do we have an issue?
