I just want to say to all the homeowners and renters that ever since the big companies have come to town, long time residences and renters are being booted out of their rent places.
Landlords are saying “We just want to sell our property, so we don’t have to pay taxes on them anymore.”
Don’t get me wrong. A person has all the right in the world to do whatever they choose to do with their property, but in the same sense, why not let long time residents have the option to rent to own?
Give them that chance.
When all the companies are long gone and they pick up their trailers, pack up their clothes, and are gone, where will it leave Karnes City then?
To me all this hot mess going on now is just here for a New York minute, but it is turning friends against neighbor and friendship for dollar signs.
A lot of people I know are getting out of places they have rented for years. As is my brother, Stanley Hopkins, a hard worker also, who can and was paying his rent on time just like the bigwigs.
