Why Dick LaRue didn't want Ronald Reagan to buy at Hollister Ranch

As noted in an earlier blog, the founder of the Hollister Ranch Owners’ Association, Dick LaRue, the primary directive when developing the HROA CC&Rs with attorney George Allen was the preservation of Hollister Ranch as it had been and still was. That goal has been realized as a result of that initial idea and the perseverance of the ownership over the years.
