2022 Berkeley Rent Board Convention Announces Final Slate Member
by Berkeley Rent Board Convention (berkeleytenantsconvention [at] gmail.com)
Berkeleyans select Nathan Mizell to join Negeene Mosaed, Soli Alpert, Ida Martinac, and Vanessa Danielle Marrero on the progressive, pro-tenant Rent Board slate
Berkeley, CA - On Tuesday, the 2022 Berkeley Rent Board Convention Planning Committee announced that Berkeleyans had voted to select Nathan Mizell as the final member of the progressive, pro-tenant slate for Berkeley's Rent Board. Mizell, who graduated from UC Berkeley in May, is the Chair of the City’s Reimagining Public Safety Task Force, Vice-Chair of the City’s Police Accountability Board, and a former Executive Vice President of the Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC).

On Sunday, July 31, the Convention Planning Committee and its member organizations put out a call for candidates. Mr. Mizell and Carolyn Moore, a Berkeley artist, responded to the call to run for the slate. On Saturday, August 6, representatives of the Convention’s 12 sponsoring organizations interviewed the candidates and then submitted their evaluations of the candidates. A ballot was then sent out to voters from the first round of the Convention, along with the candidates’ questionnaire responses and evaluation. (Paper ballots were once again brought to voters without internet access.) Voters had through Monday, August 8 to cast their ballot, and ultimately selected Mizell as the final candidate.

Mr. Mizell joins Negeene Mosaed, Soli Alpert, Ida Martinac, and Vanessa Danielle Marrero on the progressive, pro-tenant Rent Board slate. “I’m honored to join these four remarkable individuals on the slate,” said Mizell. “Together, we will fight to protect tenants and affordable housing.”

Voting in the Berkeley Rent Board Convention 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. Hundreds of Berkeleyans voted in this year’s Convention.
