HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE

This is the old Sarge and it is time to LISTEN UP. Well it is a new year and new challenges await each and every one of us.  Whether it is a new grand child or trying to meet and keep your New Years Resolutions.  Well a resolution for me is to help UNITE, help ORGANIZE, help TRAIN and GET YOU FOLKS INVOLVED.  It will take a continued effort on ALL of us to keep ahead of those that are trying to make life difficult for those who reside in mobile home parks.  So, let’s GET INVOLVED with the issues that may and will  affect your lifestyles.  PLEASE do not sit back and think that someone else is going to look out for your own way of life because that is just not going to happen.. We ALL must take a stand, and we ALL must ask questions and we ALL must formulate ideas and maintain our documentation of WHO WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, HOW AND WHY?????  We as mobile home owners must bring about a UNITY that will be heard in the halls of our Capitol and the halls of Congress.  We have plenty of laws on the books, and the        MOBILEHOME RESIDENCY LAWS have many loop holes that are being identified and closed yearly.

However, WE do not have a very strong VOICE.  There are only a few that get involved. When there are literally hundreds of thousands that reside in mobile home parks throughout this state that sit back and  declare I DON’T NEED RENT CONTROL, or RENT STABLIIZATION and the PARK OWNER HAS every right to raise the rent beyond my cost of living.  Well, it must be nice to be so self sufficient. But when the chips are down and a Park Owner as swooped down with a hefty rent increase don’t say I did not warn you.

YOU MUST UNITE,  YOU MUST ORGANIZE AND PLEASE JOIN an ADVOCATE GROUP that thinks outside the box and brings to you the issues and verified news that YOU will need to make a comprehensive and correct decision.      REMEMBER – IT IS YOUR MONEY YOUR LIFE STYLE AND YOUR HOME.  YOU HAVE THE LARGEST INVESTMENT – WE CERTAINLY DO  NOT WANT TO LOOSE WHAT WE  ALL HAVE WORKED SO HARD FOR.  JOIN US SO WE CAN CONTINUE TO HELP YOU.    BROUGHT TO YOU BY CoMO-CAL THE FOLKS THAT CARE ABOUT YOU – THE MOBILE HOME OWNER.  THAT IS YOU STAND TALL, BE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE.

Thanks for reading

Hello Everyone: Well, on 8 December I took a road trip to West Sacramento and met with approximately 50 members of the West Sacramento area that reside in mobile home parks. They were a
delightful group of people and showed great interest in forming a HOA in their area. It will take some work but it can be done. Their park managers there are telling home owners that they must cut down the trees and fix their driveways. As usual the managers do not know what they are doing. Sad, but true. Through acts of intimidation and constant berating of the park residents. According to the Mobile Home Resident laws you do not have to cut down the trees or fix your drive ways. That is the responsibility of the park owner and his/her management team. Please if you do not have a copy of the MRL please obtain one, read it and be able to document the management’s errors.
We have to start fighting back and we have to get our heads out of the sand and be able to defend our homes. I sure would like to see some management team come into this park and try to take my home. I will give them a war they will not believe. SEMPER FI (ALWAYS FAITHFUL)                       .
