Rents in Manufactured Home Parks are going through the roof. Peter Ferris, Executive Director of Oregon Manufactured Homeowners United and lobbyist, is writing legislation to get much-needed rent control in the State of Oregon. Sponsoring the Senate Bill is State Representative, Peter Buckley (D) of Ashland.
A kickoff campaign to organize and energize the 100,000 homeowners living in mobile parks is Sept. 11 at the Medford Main Library at 9 a.m. Both Buckley and Ferris will be present to speak with park dwellers.
Residents from around the valley are encouraged to attend and voice their opinions. This is an opportunity for park homeowners to come together and help themselves get out from under the unfair practices of some mobile home park owners. Ferris and Buckley are offering a chance to get out from under the radar and be counted. For more information call Monika Sayre at 541-826-2139.
