Discriminatory repairs for some residents in a coopAug 15, 2021

I live in a coop that has a Superintendent who tends towards the corrupt. Historically, the hand many is allowed to perform repair jobs he is capable of on his own or when the Super is on vacation. However, now, due to the bias of this super towards certain residents, he is restricting the handyman. This is causing inequitably of treatment and discrimination among residents. The board enables this. what can be done?

He is corrupt but nice to the board members - DM Aug 18, 2021

He loves his free apartment and will not leave. and the board is not perceptive enough to see the harm he presents.

Discriminatory repairs for some residents in a coop - Steven424 Aug 18, 2021

Run a slate of your own candidates for the board at the next election meeting. The mere threat of being replaced may get the current board off their collective duffs. Or it might put you and your running mates in control.

Just be careful of what you wish for because you may get it.
