Fair Council wanted
Some members of the City Council want to take away your property rights. In November, just six short months ago, the voters of Alameda voted for L1 which is fair rent control. Now some members of City Council want to change the ordinance so it would be more like the radical rent control proposed in Measure M1, which Alameda voters voted against by a 2 to 1 margin.
There have been very few no-cause evictions. About one-half of the no-cause evictions have been because owners of single-family homes, condos and townhomes just don’t want to go through the hassle of dealing with bureaucracy. They have sold to people wanting to buy homes.
Should this pass there will be more owners selling out, which will reduce the housing stock for renters.
Please take note how these Councilmembers vote on this, as well as other important decisions coming before them during the next one-and-a-half years.
We want a fair, open-minded City Council that listens to all the people, and not just the ones who they think might advance their political careers.
