Rent control

Raul R

Hello I have only been a resident of vallejo for 9 years, 7 at my present address. My present landlord purchased these apts. 2 years ago has raised the rent once, last Aug. by 10% but wants to raise it again in April. She has given me advance notice within legal limits but wants a 30% increase...$320 to be exact from my current rent of $880. What I find disconcerting is that no one else has received notice...I know because I talked to my neighbor nextdoor. Vallejo needs rent control for people like myself who only have their SSD to live on. I can afford another 10% but another 30?

Mayor Darrell Steinberg came out Thursday against an effort to put rent control on the ballot in Sacramento this November.

If successful, the campaign aimed at the November ballot would make Santa Ana the first city in Orange County to establish broad rent control regulations.
