2022 Berkeley Rent Board Convention Results Announced
by Berkeley Rent Board Convention (berkeleytenantsconvention [at] gmail.com)
Berkeleyans select Negeene Mosaed, Soli Alpert, Ida Martinac, Della Moran, and Vanessa Danielle Marrero as the progressive, pro-tenant slate for Rent Board
News Release No. 1: 2022-01
Date: July 18, 2022

Berkeley, CA - On Monday, the 2022 Berkeley Rent Board Convention Planning Committee announced that Berkeleyans have chosen Negeene Mosaed, Soli Alpert, Ida Martinac, Della Moran, and Vanessa Danielle Marrero* as the progressive, pro-tenant slate for Berkeley's Rent Board.

“Electing these five candidates in November is crucial to protecting and expanding Berkeley's Rent Stabilization and Eviction for Good Cause Ordinance, which is the biggest factor in working-class peoples' ability to afford to stay in Berkeley.” said Planning Committee Co-Chair Paola Laverde. “The next Board will be in charge of implementing what could likely be the first expansion of local rent control and eviction protections in Berkeley in over 40 years.”

“We'd like to thank all the candidates, the Convention organizers, and the hundreds of voters who participated in this year's Convention,” said Planning Committee Co-Chair Matthew Lewis. “We couldn't have done this without them.”

The 2022 Convention took place the evening of Wednesday, June 29. Voting then took place from Sunday, July 3 through Saturday, July 17. Voting was primarily conducted online using OpaVote to anonymously collect ballots; paper ballots were also made available to Berkeley residents without internet access or who had difficulty casting an electronic ballot. Voting was open to all Berkeley residents at least thirteen years old - including college/university students gone for the summer, undocumented residents and other non-citizens, and unhoused residents - who fully support tenants' rights and affordable housing.

* Candidates are listed in a random order
