— Email to MHI VP and General Counsel, Rick Robinson —
Subject Line: Rick, on or off the record, your thoughts for publication on this MH issue please
Rick, if you have 15 minutes?
MHI was no where to be found in this matter. Nor were the state execs. We asked, locals answered. The facts are what they are.
In about 2 days of mostly electronic efforts, the city went from banning manufactured homes, to reversing themselves.
On or off the record, I’d like your reaction. Email for our accuracy in handling.
Please note that there are several BCCs, including MHI members. We plan to do a write up, perhaps as soon as midafternoon, so a prompt reply is welcome.
If you can’t reply by then, and we publish first, you or MHI are welcome to provide a reaction to our reports, for the record.

To our professional readers, investors and those Cavco Industries (CVCO) pursuing plaintiff’s attorneys. Ponder this question. MHI purportedly postures action, but where is the evidence of their results?
Read this local media report first, then read the article which outlines some of the motivations that sparked the dramatic reversal of the city officials. That tells a tale that should remind manufactured home industry pros a similar reveal to what occurred in Washington, IN last year. The city officials are quoted on-the-record in the linked article above.
If MHProNews’ publisher – in concert with aligned nonprofits – could accomplish a dramatic reversal in two days of mostly electronic communications, why can’t MHI routinely do the same?

Democrats, Republicans Agree – “Manufactured Homes Can Play a Vital Role in Easing” the Affordable Housing Shortage – manufacturedhomelivingnews.com
For years here on MHLivingNews and our professional sister site, MHProNews, we’ve worked with a simple premise. Affordable quality living is a non-partisan issue. Rephrased, that means it should be a bipartisan effort to understand and promote the most proven kind of affordable housing that America has ever known.
