Thanks for open letter on rent rules

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for printing last week’s letter to the mayor and councilmembers from Kurt & Katie Braun (“Open Letter On Rent Rules,” May 16). That was a well-written letter with a lot of research behind it.

I only hope the mayor and councilmembers can put their political views aside and remain open minded to the hard facts and research that has been done over decades on rent control. It is very clear rent control doesn’t work and does more harm in the long run so I hope they do the right thing for our entire community.
