No on K nonsense

Editor:
For those against Measure K, claiming it would make simple changes more difficult, I am reminded of how the tentant activists in the 2016 election treated Measure M1. The activists set up M1 to go immediately into the City Charter. The title of M1 was “The Alameda Renter Protection and Community Stabilization Charter Amendment.”

At the end of the M1 text a paragraph states, “This charter amendement shall supersede any ordinance passed by the Alameda City Council covering the area of rents or evictions.” 

In between the title and the quoted paragraph there are 17 places where “charter” is used. The tenant activists meant to put their measure into the Charter. So, for the tenant activists to now complain about Measure K entering the Charter is nonsense.
