Please stop this rent control non sense package.
It has never helped any city too be in a better shape. Please look at SF and see what happens to this beautiful location. It is getting so disgusting that tourist loose their appetite when they visit it only once. People need to learn to work hard and improve their skills.Stop listening to sleazy politician on both side of the isle.
Have you ever heard that any politician rent their massive Gated houses to poor people for $ 1,500 rent a month or perhaps they can issue permit for RV's to park in front of their mansions for ever?
I have no problem with that.
Stop looking at surface and please pay attention to the depth of the issues.
Our city is getting flooded with this non-sense ideas and now we are floating between hundreds and soon thousands of RV's parked right in front of your home and changing the whole environment. Do you want to observe some one dumping their trash or feces in your front yard. When you rent a place, most LEGAL landlords run a soft back ground check to make sure you are a decent tenant. We do not even know who these people are with all due respect to RV Owners. They can work and park at RV park and have a clean water and sewage and there is no need to drop the RV's in our streets and we pay tax to clean the road after them. This is so stupid and even writing about it makes me angry.

If they want to fix the housing crisis, here is an idea .. BUILD MORE HOUSING!!
The bright brains in our city are all for rent control .. but not RENT REDUCTION.
If you want stable rents, support housing stock development.

There is simply no way around it.

As economic opportunities shift into Urban areas, people are compelled to seek these opportunities. Having people commute 1-2 hrs every day to seek a livelihood is economically unsound and morally reprehensible.

Yes, we understand you want to protect your $1M+ "nest-egg" of a home. But you need to understand this nest-egg was only possible because of economic development. And if you restrict development with the idea of controlling housing supply to inflate pricing, it will blow up in your face as you the nest-egg owner will eventually be denied of required economic opportunities to maintain an income level required to own and upkeep your nest-egg and thus will eventually be forced out as is currently happening to many people.

Being wealthy is nice. But you also better have the income to keep that wealth.
