California Apartment Association Lies About Government Agency Position in Anti-Rent Control Mailer, Tenants Protest

Tenants protest CAA’s deceptive campaign and will file complaint with the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC)


Representing big landlords and sending misleading mailers to voters, the California Apartment Association (CAA) is running a deceptive campaign against renter protection ballot measures in cities throughout the Bay Area. The CAA recently sent literature that falsely claims the State Legislative Analyst’s Office (LAO) has taken a position on the 5 ballot measures for new rent control. 


Tenants will hold a day of action in protest of the CAA’s deceptive campaign calling on the CAA to stop using renters’ money to subsidize lies, and will release its formal FPPC complaint against the CAA. 


WHAT: Tenants and allies, rally against deceptive campaign and delivery of formal FPPC complaints  


WHO: Campaigns from Alameda, Burlingame, Mountain View, Oakland, Richmond, and San Mateo.
