Landlords in Santa Cruz Step Up Their Misinformation Campaign Against Measure M
by YES on M: Santa Cruz for Rent Control
Our opposition has now raised over three quarters of a million dollars, which they are using to spread fear and misinformation about rent control. While most of this money comes from out of the area real estate interests like the National Association of Realtors and the California Apartment Association, local landlords in Santa Cruz are also part of the problem. Over the last week, a number of banners have appeared on buildings owned by Darius Mohsenin, a landlord with dozens of properties from Santa Cruz to Salinas, San Leandro, and Vacaville. One banner on a small apartment building on lower Pacific claims that under Measure M, 146 people would be allowed to live there. This is a wild exaggeration; there are federal and state guidelines to protect against overcrowding, which would not be changed by Measure M.
