RE: Gary Shiffman / Sun Communities Inc

Thu, Jun 1, 2023 – Brian Benderoff Claims he and Dr. Billy Gonte involved in insurance scam with Gary Shiffman, CEO of Sun Communities, per Detroit News – additional info beyond report. In this evidence packed article are the following elements.

Part I of this article will be a flashback to 2016, with a report on the local Detroit Patch article that doesn’t mention Shiffman by name, but alludes to an “unnamed” person and two “associates” of Benderoff and Gonte involved in a federal legal controversy. There are similarities and differences between the facts mentioned in the Patch and what’s cited in The Detroit News.

Part II of this article will feature the roughly 2376-word text of The Detroit News article by Donnelly involving Gary A. Shiffman. Shiffman is mentioned by name dozens of times in that report. So too are actors Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, and basketball player Kevin Durant. Note that MHProNews reached out to Shiffman for comment on Tuesday, May 30. As of 6.1.2023 at 2:20 AM ET, no apparent reply has been received from Shiffman or an attorney acting on his behalf.

Part III will be additional information which includes court filings and pages of various documents, plus MHProNews analysis and commentary in brief.

RE: CalMatters / California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD)

Thu, May 18, 2023 – California officials depend largely on residents filing complaints to find out about health and safety problems at mobile home parks. Here’s how to file a complaint.

A five-month CalMatters investigation found most park residents don’t know how to file a complaint or fear what could happen if they do. We took the most common questions we heard from park residents about the complaint system and put together a guide for you.

  1. If management at my mobile home park doesn’t fix a problem, who can I turn to for help?
  2. What can I file a complaint about?
  3. How do I file a complaint?
  4. How do I avoid retaliation?
  5. What can I expect after filing a complaint?
