Driving Out Residents from Lakeview Mobile Home, a Follow Up with Angela Kaufman
Since our last conversation with Angela about Lakeview Mobile Home Park, one resident already left due to the stress at the park. The park has few trees left. Two trailers were demolished on site and debris still around making the park look like a dump site. The resident’s concern about the owner’s agenda to drive people out and build boat storage is becoming a true story. The retaliations against her by the Lakeview Mobile Home Park owner have escalated. It has gone from trying to claim Angela’s driveway, doubting her professional credentials, to calling her “psycho” to interrupting the visit of Yvonne Maldonado, an organizer from Manufactured Home Action. MH Action is a nonprofit consisting of peers who live in manufactured home parks, their focus is organizing and strengthening protections for residents via legislative protection. She went to the park to provide the residents with information about their rights as mobile home owners. Yvonne could not outreach the residents due to the manager following her around.
“This is a matter of environmental and housing justice and no matter what happens I will continue to challenge what he is doing” – Angela Kaufman
