As long-time Daily Business News readers know, digital and actual protests by activist-minded resident groups have been taking place for several years in the manufactured housing industry, generally focused on the community sector.
For several years, Daily Business News has been virtually alone in reporting on such events by manufactured home industry media.
Examples of such protests have included, but aren’t limited to:
among dozens of others.
In a broader Masthead blog post, publisher L. A. ‘Tony’ Kovach notes word that the Manufactured Housing Institute’s (MHI) annual meeting in Orlando, FL has been mentioned by informed sources as a potential target for state and/or national resident groups to protest.
“Should organized protests take place, it won’t be the first or last time an industry event has been so targeted for organized protests,” Kovach said.
What could make this time different is if a more robust, Soros-style protest event is staged. One that could bring considerable – and more problematic exposure – to those companies that are caught up in it.
“Industry professionals may want to think carefully and weigh the question of if they – or their company – want to be associated with protesters on TV, digital, print, or social media news reports,” Kovach said.
