Apparently, Hilary Mosher and the Humboldt Mobilehome Owners Coalition have a bone to pick with the Board of Supervisors.
We think it has something to with the fact that the Supervisors denied their support to a misguided, unnecessary and frankly stupid push to institute rent control for mobile homes in Humboldt County.
Of course, it could also be because the Supervisors recently passed an ordinance that will make it tough for groups like Mosher’s HMOC to harass innocent people in public for not agreeing with their opinions. We’d call it sour grapes, since HMOC already gathered the required number of signatures, but old folks sure know how to hold a grudge.
In any case, since the Supervisor’s didn’t support adopting the ordinance and will send it to voters, Mosher had this to say in a recent Times-Standard article:
“We intend to make the Board of Supervisors feel as guilty as possible if they don’t pass it.”
And they’ll be sent to bed early without any of granny’s signature cookies, too!
The Times-Standard goes on to say:
“Mosher said if the ordinance gets voted down by the board, as she expects, she will have the support of various groups who feel near and dear to the issue, such as the Save Our Seniors group.
“Everyone in the county might be able to vote on it. We’re going to gather lots of support,” Mosher said.”
