Sustainable housing policy creates a healthy community when all voices have an opportunity to be heard. Policy that only considers the immediate gains of one segment fails to serve the well-being of the community as a whole. We are running to provide balance to the currently all-tenant Rent Board. Homeowners should have a voice in rental housing policy!
The rent is too damn high! We have an affordable and mid-range housing crisis in Berkeley. Our diverse community is in danger when housing is out of reach for so many. We are committed to policies that increase housing supply, without sacrificing the character of Berkeley.
The current Berkeley Rent Board is comprised almost wholly of tenants. Sustainable policy creates a healthy community when all voices have an opportunity to be heard. Policy that only considers the immediate gains of one segment fail to serve the well-being of the community as a whole. We seek to bring balance to rental housing policy decision-making.
Current rental housing policy is being made in the absence of real data, and instead using presumptions and innuendo. Let's start to make real difference based on facts, not anecdotes. We need homeowner representation for policy making.
There is little transparency in how the Rent Board operates and spends its $6m. We seek to advocate for more clarity so that all stakeholders can be confident in the role the Rent Board plays in their community.
