Great News! California Voters Reject Proposition 15

WMA is pleased to report that the most significant threat to our industry was defeated. Proposition 15, which would have removed protections afforded to commercial properties from reassessment, was defeated by California voters by a significant margin.

The WMA PAC’s substantial, financial support of the “No on Prop. 15” campaign played an instrumental role in defeating Proposition 15.

Again, this is a significant victory and welcome news.

People who live in mobile home parks are in a precarious position: They own the homes they live in, but rent the space underneath them. And few receive the protections that other types of renters enjoy.

In El Dorado County, where a new mobile park owner is offering decades-long leases, residents fearing displacement are hoping elected officials step in. While dozens of California counties and cities have passed protections of their own, few statewide rules exist. 


$50 Million Spent On Campaigns For And Against Proposition 21

The California Apartment Association representing landlords oppose Prop. 21, claiming it will make the crisis worse because investors won’t want to build new apartments.

“Opponents say the very fact that you do rent control will actually reduce the number of rental units and reduce the investment in rental housing and affordable housing,” says Fernando Guerra, a Political Science Professor at Loyola Marymount University. “While the intention is good, the reality is that it’ll make the rental environment even much worse and actually end up increasing rent.
