Call to Defund NPR draws Manufactured Home Community Owner Richard Nodel, Nodel Parks, Reaction

February 18th, 2017 No comments

Negative coverage of our industry is something many media outlets are guilty of, but I am a patriot first.

Anything that is an abridgment of our constitutional rights is a greater threat to all of us than just a negative news article.

Let’s fight bad information with good information, and not have to resort to unAmerican activities like censorship of the media.

Just because we don’t like the report, do we try and shutter the source? ##

(Editor’s note: Richard Nodel’s Industry Voices guest comment came in response to the commentary on the Daily Signal, linked here, calling for NPR to be defunded.  Landy was cited in the article, linked below.

Manufactured Home Community Owner Pounds “Park Owner,” Corruption in Government and Media Bias

Tony, I agree with the Daily Business News article and the comments from other manufactured home industry professionals regarding Councilman David McCartney in Baytown. He should face criminal charges. However, we know that will not happen.

Once again, it’s the hypocrisy of our Government, this time, local government.

Properly operating a business is a full time job. Properly managing a MH Community is a full time job. There are many people who think they can own and manage a manufactured home community and keep their day job. I suppose you can, but the results are an absolute disaster.

Todd Lamb’s comment above is about the story, linked here.

Regarding the ABC News 13 report, also from the Houston metro. Crime occurs all over America. Apartments, houses, MHC’s, rich and poor communities – it strikes all over.

Sure, there is more crime in certain demographics, certain neighborhoods, certain sides of towns, etc.

But manufactured home communities that are well managed or in nicer sides of towns have little to no crime, while those that don’t get the proper attention may tend to have more criminal activity.

The attitude and practices of ownership and proper management of these communities is a major contributing factor to avoiding crime, but it’s not the catch all.

We work diligently to screen our people and have a no-nonsense attitude toward violating our community rules. This takes daily discipline and persistent dedication, usually not something that is going to happen while you are working another job.  But the results are a cleaner community, overall happy homeowners and less crime.

Thanks for all you do. ##

(Editor’s Notes: Todd Lamb is quite right about crime in manufactured home communities, as a study by independent researchers demonstrates, see article linked here. This post will be updated with a link to the story soon to be published that Lamb is commenting on, meanwhile, ICYMI, the Baytown story is linked here.)
