Richard believes that he is being targeted by his neighbors and the association because he supported Donald Trump in last year's presidential election. Signs he had posted in support of Trump were taken from his yard, according to Richard, KUSA reported.
An attorney representing the Alford Meadows Community Association sent a response to local media saying that the push to have their yard pruned to six items was not politically motivated and that the Stephens want "special treatment," KUSA reported. He added that the board won't fine the Stephens' for the decorations, but may file a lawsuit to get him to remove the sign.
Richard said he has had support from some neighbors, but others are upset with the sign saying that it is affecting their property values and have hurt home sales.
He said the sign will come down when violations are nullified and the HOA gives him an apology letter, KUSA reported.
