Tenants, we need your voices at the council meetings as well as via emails - especially to VICE-MAYOR JUSTIN CUMMINGS. He says he will act on our behalf if he receives constant input and many emails from tenants. So better email him right now, let him know your expectations - what you want from him for your vote.

VM CUMMING WILL BE THE NEXT MAYOR!!! ....which means he will be able to SET THE AGENDA. We must exert any influence and pressure that we can - to get our votes' worth. TENANT INFLUENCE IS WIELDED BY SHOWING UP AND BY EMAILING COUNCIL.

What is VM Cummings' position on tenant protections and landlord accountability? He is a pivotal vote. Please ask him to clarify his position and tell him what you expect him to do for tenants.

Thanks for posting this. We need lots of RENTERS to keep showing up at city council meetings again and all the time. Because otherwise, the opposition will always be louder. Having a big presence as a tenant is essential at all city council meetings, or - ask a tenant friend if you can't come. Can their decisions affect you? Yes. Can their decisions make your rent raises even worse? Definitely!!! Can your presence and comments/emails eventually lower your rent? Absolutely!
How? Get involved and find out. It's complex and we are all cogs. Large groups of small non-rich people who commit to working together as a team CAN strategize to *encourage* change for our own benefit when working against small groups of big rich people who always work together in a team against the small, dispensable people.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
