This was a post from back in 2015 that is very pertinent right now with the climate in Missouri – so we thought we would revisit.
This past weekend, Kim Tucker, founder of MAREI attended a leadership training conference hosted by Ohio Real Estate Investors Association.
One of the guest speakers was MAURICE A. THOMPSON – Executive Director of the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law.
Maurice is working with OREIA and the other smaller associations across the state of Ohio to protect property owners rights. Two issues he is championing include Landlord Licensing and Inspection Laws as being Federally Unconstitutional as well as the Assignment of Contract that has become a big issue in Ohio.
Why do I bring this to your attention. Because if he can win in Ohio, he can create case law for us to use in other states to protect our own rights.
Last year, Vena Jones-Cox interviewed him on her Real Life Real Estate Radio show and it was recorded. I urge all members of MAREI to take the time to listen to this interview. And stay current on the issues in your own city. As a single property owner, you probably can’t create change or do much about anything, but if you combine your voice with all the members of MAREI or with all the members of our National organization and sister organizations across the country, we can create change.
