Condo owner concerned for health over wall damage

I live on the bottom level of a three level condo building in Stafford ME. There was a leak in my second bathroom which required the condo plumber to cut a hole in the ceiling to stop the leak. A handyman repaired drywall days later. Before the hole was repaired there was a strong overpowering smell of mothballs emanating from the hole in the ceiling that over the next few days permeated unit. I stayed one night in a hotel and informed the condo management of the problem. I also called the EPA, the local Environmental Health Dept. in my area and a private air quality firm. I also conducted research on the internet and the EPA confirmed what I discovered that mothballs are made from a chemical called naphthalene which when exposed over time is a carcinogen. Even after the opening in the ceiling was closed there is still a slight odor of mothball in my home. I have asked condo management to find out the source and try to eliminate the odor but they have not responded. I am concerned for my health and don't know what to do. What are my options? A law suit? Please respond.

Husband and wife double their vote on Maine condo board

I am an owner in a 16 unit condominium in Maine. There are 5 board members. Both state law and our bylaws say that board members must be "unit owners or spouses of unit owners".  At the time of the last election of officers both owners of a single unit were elected to the board of directors. As a result, that one unit has two votes in all board decisions. How should the law and by-laws be interpreted? On one hand the word "or" can be interpreted as meaning one "or" the other but not both. On the other hand, it could mean both. I would be interested in knowing how board members are defined elsewhere.
