Meeting tonight

Well, I showed up to the meeting, and had my legal counsel with me. The heads turned when I walked through the double doors with a guy in a suit carrying a briefcase.

 The look on the board members faces, along with the community manager was PRICELESS.

 There were about 8 other homeowners there, and they all started asking if they thought "the flag guy" would show. That was my cue to introduce myself. We chatted side bar from the yet to start meeting, and every homeowner openly voiced their support for me.

 Meeting was called to order, and quickly ended due to no quorum. We did not meet the 35 homeowners. The board and management company cut out QUICK. A couple homeowners wanted to ask questions, and they were shot down.

 I have a feeling the HOA will have their counsel at the next meeting.

Interesting sidenote, seems they have updated my account on the association website. They have  closed the issue with the flag, and have opened up a architectural design request and stated I must submit a design request for the flag, please do so asap.

 Does THIS mean they have caved?

Hey guys

Well, tomorrow night is the annual meeting and election. I will be in attendance, but I am not sure if I am going to vote.

 The "secret ballot" the association mailed out CLEARLY had my name, and lot # on the envelope.

 Not REAL secret if you ask me.

 But, none the less, I will be attending the meeting. I will update as soon as its over if anything good happens.

The latest

Nothing new over the labor day weekend. My attorney was contacted by the HOA attorney late last week, and they stated "no action will be taken until after the annual board of directors meeting and election". What this means, I have no clue. Will they not fine me until the new board is in place? Will they re-present the issue to the new board to have them vote on it?  I know the annual meeting to elect board members is later this month.

I did notice on the association website, there was a executive meeting of the board of directors (meeting not open to the general homeowners) on Thursday of last week. That seems to been called out of the blue, because it wasnt on the calendar of events, then all of a sudden it was...Hmmmm??

The one thing I DO know is, according to the association website, I am set to start receiving fines for flying the Gadsden as of 9/5/10. The first seems to be $25.00. Will I actually receive a fine? We shall see

 So I think we are at a stand still. Do not think for a moment I have let up on my side of this fight. Everyday I get another person who says they stand behind me, another small donation to help with my attorney fee's, and great companies like DTOM.com, Phoenix Firearms, and FrontSight who donate time and items for raffles.

I have secured some nice donations from Dont Tread On Me clothing and Frontsight Training to use in a raffle. I cant express my thanks enough to these two fine companies who want to help.

Phoenix Firearms has also stepped up and set out a donation jar, so if you are local in Phoenix, and need anything firearm related, please see Mont over at Phoenix Firearms.

 If you would like to buy a raffle ticket, email me at andycmcdonel@aol.com. I have a third party involved to run the raffle. i will give you details

Legal Fund Donations

For those concerned about security issues (i know how some HATE paypal) you can also contact

Dessaules Law Group

and ask how to donate monetary contributions in my name.

 Jonathan Dessaules is a spectacular HOA law attorney in the Phoenix area, and is the man spearheading the legal side of this battle.

 You can also contact Darrell Hill, or anyone over at the Arizona ACLU if you would like to contribute to them for my fund. This great organization helps the people who find themselves in a fight for their God given, civil liberties. These same civil liberties the founding fathers stated we are entitled to.

 All funds will be funneled into one account and used for legal defense. No fines occurred during this process, no assessments, NOTHING will be paid with these donations.

 As I have stated before, ALL funds not used to win this fight will be handed over to the wounded warrior project. This GREAT organization helps our men and women wounded in battle adjust once they are back home.

Shock and Awe

I want to say hello to everyone from the Yahoo news link...

Thank you to Liz over on Yahoo.com for posting my story and making it front page news. For those who are still confused over the fight, read the previous blog posts. I am within Arizona Law and HOA guidelines in flying this flag, yet teh HOA doesn't want to recognize the law and their own rules.

 Anyway, my legal counsel sent off a very nice letter to the HOA attorney, I enturn sent it to all my media contacts. This letter picks apart the HOA's claims and points out all the contradictions they have on their own CC&R's, bylaws, and activities.

Thank you all that have supported me..
