Can a HOA Management Co endorse a candidate?

Yes.


Owners who vote, however, make the decision about which candidate has earned the privilege of volunteering for election to board work.

A management company's endorsement may or may not influence owners, depending on how knowledgeable an individual owner might be.

Remember, the management company is a vendor to the association and may be most interested in retaining the income source that the association provides. Any endorsement could be viewed as a conflict of interest, therefore.
