Tenants activists like tenantsTogether.org are targeting Long Beach and Santa Ana as spearheads into other areas of
OC Santa Ana
Rent controls don't work rent control programs lead to abuse and poor property maintenance when there is no incentive to keep them up
With housing providers unable to base rents on actual costs, many will be unable to properly maintain their buildings. Some will be COMPLETELY NEGLECTED and fall into DISREPAIR and abandonment
So if you own a home or are in any OC or LA neighborhood where they wish to increase rent controls please consider fighting it or writing to local city representatives!
This is a group of small property owners and workers fighting AGAINST Rent Control http://www.betterhousingforlongbeach.com/
I've been donating to them to fight it
