On September 20 GSMOL (Golden State Manufactured Home-Owners League) President, Jean Crowder, visited Santa Cruz. She attended SCCMMHA’s Community Meeting and then was welcomed with a luncheon hosted by SCCMMHA at Shoreline Estates. Jean spoke at both events and happily answered questions. She talked about the need to grow the membership in GSMOL so it can help meet the needs of manufactured homeowners throughout the state. Jean is committed to keeping GSMOL viable. It is our HOA (Home-Owners Association) at the state level. It employs a lobbyist in Sacramento to represent our interests and help protect the investment we have in our homes. She reminded us that GSMOL is a grassroots, volunteer organization. Volunteer Jean lives in the Central Valley and still works part-time. If you’re not a GSMOL member, consider becoming one. Membership costs less than a dime a day, in fact it’s a mere 7 cents per day. You can find a link to the GSMOL website by clicking the “Useful Resources” button on this page.

Jean Crowder, President of GSMOL will be “meeting and greeting” folks who attend this important meeting on Saturday, September 20 at 10:00 in the Capitola City Council Chambers. There is a city “pay” parking lot behind the Council Chambers.
More than 100 people showed up for the March 22 Roadshow. Those attending agreed that there was a lot to be learned at the event. GSMOL Corporate Counsel, Bruce Stanton headed the presentations, talking about California Mobilehome Residency Law (MRL) and answering attendees questions. He was followed by Carl Eric Leivo PH.D., author of MHP Living: Successful Living in California Manufactured Home Parks who replaced attorney, Henry Heater on the program. David Loop, GSMOL VP for ROP (Resident Owned Parks) concluded the presentations talking about how park residents can prepare themselves to purchase their park, should the opportunity present itself. A special guest, Ishbel Dickens, representing the National Manufactured Home Owners Association, spoke briefly about what the NMHOA is doing to support park residents nationwide (website: nmhoa.org). District One Supervisor, John Leopold attended the event and presented SCCMMHA with a Proclamation from the County Board of Supervisors recognizing its “efforts to inform and advocate for mobile and manufactured home residents.” SCCMMHA would like to thank GSMOL for sponsoring such a great event!
