Riverside County Homeowner In HOA Flap Over Trump Flag

EASTVALE (CBSLA.com)  — A Riverside County homeowner believes politics is playing into his home owners association’s decision to ban his ability to fly a flag.

The Eastvale man’s support of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may be the reason.

Frank Hernandez, a retired soldier and son of a Korean War veteran, has a flag pole and often flies the United States flag and then sometimes a Donald Trump flag. The highly visible flagpole, adjacent to a major artery, has been flying a Trump version on and off for the past eight months.

A recent letter from his HOA says Hernandez had been told in a previous letter to remove the flagpole. Hernandez denies ever getting such a letter.

Hernandez says his HOA is threatening fines if he doesn’t take it down. He has been asked to appear at next week’s HOA meeting. Hernandez says he will attend and tell the HOA it is wrong.

“We all have a right to express our beliefs, our likes,” Hernandez said. “They don’t have to be the same as our neighbors, but we should all respect each other’s choice to fly the American flag, or Donald Trump flag.”

Neighbor Timothy York said he will attend the HOA meeting in support of Hernandez.

In a late phone call to CBSLA’s Michele Gile, a representative from the HOA said there’s been a mistake and that they would never ask Hernandez to remove the flagpole. The HOA does want him to submit a design plan for the flagpole, the representative said.
