Glendale tenants routinely face steep rent increases on the basis of 30- or 60-day notices—sometimes as often as two and three times in the course of one year. Households on limited and fixed incomes find themselves unable to plan for such dramatic hits to their budgets.

And some landlords have been evicting tenants on as little as a 30-day notice, requiring children to change schools mid-semester. This inability of renters to control their household costs or other circumstances of their housing is coupled with a severe lack of affordable rental housing in the City. Evicted renters are often displaced permanently from Glendale.

rent control panelAdvocates for housing stability for Glendale tenants promote rent control as one tool to deal with unexpected rent spikes, displacement of vulnerable populations and the loss of economic and racial/ethnic diversity.

This forum will explore the arguments for and against rent control.

Frank Broccolo is a lawyer with substantial liberal credentials who, nonetheless, has serious concerns about rent control and its implications for housing productivity.

Walter Senterfitt is a seasoned tenant organizer working on the efforts to have the LA County Supervisors adopt a rent control/just cause eviction ordinance that would cover the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. He will report on these efforts, as well as the progress towards repealing the State's the anti-rent control law that was enacted in 1995.

Mike Van Gorder is one of the petitioner for rent control in Glendale and a mainstay to the movement. He will alert the audience as to the status of the campaign.

Michelle White, Chair of the ACLU SoCal Pasadena/Foothills Chapter's Economic Justice Committee, moderator
