Dedication and Appreciation
OSTA and all of its accomplishments in the name of tenant rights would not be possible without the 20+ year leadership legacy of Pat and Fred Schwoch. Pat and Fred built OSTA into the successful, well-respected, statewide organization that it is today and their work has enabled Oregon’s manufactured home park homeowners to count on expanded services and advocacy even as they retired. During their tenure, Pat and Fred assisted all of Oregon’s manufactured home park homeowners by spearheading legislative changes that protected homeowners’ rights, while serving thousands of park homeowners on an individual basis, providing resources, referrals, and advice themselves or throughout the volunteer network they designed and led.
We owe a debt of gratitude to Pat and Fred Schwock.
