Don’t let Mike Giovanone turn affordable housing into boat storage! Residents of Saratoga Lakeview Mobile Home Park have been subject to an aggressive campaign of intimidation since Giovanone took ownership of the park in June 2021. His tactics have included weaponizing the police and using ableist language to alienate/discredit a community advocate. Starting Monday 11/22/2021, call Mike Giovanone at Boat N RV Storage 518 583-1600. Please be polite to people who answer the phone who may be Fellow Workers.

Suggested Script:

Hello, I heard on It’s Going Down (bit.ly/30OpARP) that Mike Giovanone has been moving forward with his plans to build luxury boat storage where low-income people are residing at Saratoga Lakeview Mobile Home Park. People need homes, boats don’t. I demand Mr. Giovanone stop harassing residents and commit to maintaining the park as affordable housing while reversing the environmental damage he has done.
