SUNNY HILL HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION needs to fill its community manager position. One of the applicants, Timothy Swanson, has several years of experience as a community association manager and is an attorney. On paper, Swanson looks like a great candidate. However, he's previously represented several owners in lawsuits filed against the association. Swanson insists that he no longer represents any Sunny Hill homeowners and his commitment would be solely to serve as community manager, but some of the board members believe his past legal work makes him unfit for the role.
Should the Sunny Hill board consider Timothy Swanson for the community manager position? Can he be a trusted manager despite his past?
