Under normal circumstances the bill sounds like it would be a good improvement, don’t berate, abuse, attack staff, board members or other residents. That is already in NRS116. However, Adam Clarkson, our board’s attorney, is known to twist, manipulate and interpret the law to fit what he wants it to say. He has added fines and penalties to the bill that would mean, for a person who speaks their mind, and maybe they are really angry at the time, they argue too loudly, or use words they should not, it “could” be used to charge assault. Don’t think it couldn’t because charges of assault have been raised here when, as I personally witnessed, was simply a tap on the shoulder.
Adam Clarkson, who is given the job by our board, of approving our candidates for the board by deeming if they qualify or not, uses manipulated “missteps” as reasons to say they don’t qualify. In the two cases I am aware of, the candidate challenged Clarkson and he immediately backed down.
The very idea of seeing “his” bill draft pass the legislature give me chills and we can all only hope it will not pass since it seems, without a resident friendly board majority we are stuck like mice in mud!
