Manufactured housing has become an important issue in a second house of representatives district in Delaware. The first pits challenger Beth McGinn against incumbent Briggs King for Seat 37 is south Delaware, as we last reported Oct. 17,2012. DelawareNewsZap tells MHProNews Democrat Theodore Yacucci is running to represent District 34 just outside Dover. When responding to “what would most help the people in his district,” he stated his priority is to pass legislation protecting manufactured housing homeowners, and remove MH from the jurisdiction of the Department of Motor Vehicles. He says the incumbent, Donald Blakey, did not advocate on behalf of the 600 MHC residents in the district when Senate Bill 205, passed by the Senate, was rejected by the House. The measure would have tied rent increases to cost of living increases. Yacucci claims Blakey did not vote for the legislation until he realized it would not pass anyhow.
