Rent control measure in National City defeated by CAA-led campaign
A campaign led by the California Apartment Association has defeated a rent control and “just cause” eviction initiative in National City.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, 53.9 percent of voters had rejected Measure W, while 46.1 percent voted to approve it. A rent control measure also failed in Santa Cruz.
By defeating Measure W, CAA has protected National City’s rental housing industry from the imposition of rent control on pre-1995 multifamily housing.
