Reminder: Help stop rent control, just-cause eviction in Richmond
In just four days, the Richmond City Council will again take up a proposal to institute rent control and a just-cause eviction ordinance.
CAA is calling on its members with property in Richmond to attend the Tuesday, July 21, meeting and argue against these flawed policies.
As they have in recent meetings, tenant advocates Tuesday will likely make impassioned pleas for rent control and a just-cause eviction ordinance, while arguing against the creation of a rent mediation board, the most sensible option under consideration.
It’s imperative that CAA and its members continue to dispell the myths surrounding rent control and explain why it’s bad policy both for property owners and tenants.
On Tuesday, in a show of solidarity, please wear red and gather at 5 p.m. in the plaza outside council chambers at City Hall, (Community Services Building) 440 Civic Center Plaza, Richmond, CA 94804.
