Silicon Valley DSA is once again organizing to protect rent control from Mountain View City Council. We need your help.
After Mountain View tenants won rent control in 2016, City Council worked to undermine it by appointing people to the Rental Housing Committee who fundamentally opposed the policy they were supposed to implement, and who twice voted to deny rent control to more than 1100 mobile home households. Earlier this year, City Council tried to gut our rent control law by putting the disastrous Measure D on the ballot.
Now City Council is trying to undermine rent control again. Councilmember McAlister wants to pack the Rental Housing Committee with appointees during the lame duck council session instead of leaving appointments to the new council. The Rental Housing Committee has the power to suspend rent control if the vacancy rate rises above 5%. It is now at 7%. Rent control itself is at stake!
Join us tonight at 7:00 pm to organize for renter protections:
