This guy is complaining about "two ten dollar" increases over a two year period!?! We all know many who live in trailer parks have modest incomes but a $10 increase doesn't sound unreasonable. Don't trailer park operators have a right to make a profit and do we really want local govt to get into the rent control business? Rent control invariably leads to to lower reinvestment and a decline in the housing stock as the incentive to invest decreases... Something to think about.

Greed is also something to think about. I know one person who has a dream of owning a trailer park in Redwood Valley, a dream that she is close to realizing. She plans on raising the rents (to get rid of the trash in her words) and allowing only new trailers to stay there once she buys it. She doesn't care who will be hurt by her actions. Not in the least. That's one sick dream in my book. Rent control might slow her down a little bit and I feel that that's a good thing. Nuff said.

America is based on capitalism not communism. If you want government controlling everything you do in life move to either China or North Korea. This is the United States and you have the freedom to start out poor and work hard all your life to become wealthy enough to own properties. If government gets to be where it provides everything for you then who's to say they can't take it away from you. Quote from Thomas Jefferson.

trailer parks are not trailer parks, the new ones are mobile homes and when you are in the south bay like San Jose , Hayward , Sunnyvale , San Leandro, your rents can be from $ 650 a month if you been at the same place for 30 / 35 years to the new rents up to $ 950 a mouth and up . this is just the ground space .

We donít live in a capitalist society anymore, we live in a plutocracy where we serve at the whim of the rich and powerful.

Liberals don't understand that without people that have money to buy property such as this to rent to the liberals that they would be sleeping under the bridge
