We Need Rent Control Join Me For An Official Council Discussion On My Rent Control Resolution says
Sisters and Brothers,

We need your help and support this Thursday, September 17 at 9:00AM at City Hall.

Thursday morning, the City Council's Housing Committee will discuss the Rent Control Resolution introduced by Councilmember Nick Licata and me.

Seattle is facing an affordable housing crisis. To solve it, we need a comprehensive set of bold housing policies - an expansion of tenant rights, robust linkage fees to make developers pay more for affordable housing, and a program to build thousands of City-owned affordable housing units.

Seattleites should also be able to have a meaningful debate on rent control for our city. Passing the Rent Control Resolution would make it official policy that Seattle wants Washington State to lift its undemocratic ban on rent control. It would be an important victory helping us to build our city’s affordable housing movement.

Getting five votes to pass the Rent Control Resolution will not be easy!

We need to pack Council Chambers at City Hall on Thursday, September 17 at 9:00AM to show the enormous community support that exists for rent control. The meeting will begin at 9:30AM, but please arrive at 9:00AM to sign up for public comment.

Please contact Adam Ziemkowski in my office with any questions: adam.ziemkowsk@seattle.gov; 206-684-8016.

Solidarity,
Kshama
