These rent increases are being fueled by relentless speculation, often by out of state corporations, which come in, buy up properties, jack up the prices, and kick out tenants.
It is shameful that City officials have neglected this growing crisis for so long. We need to public investment in quality affordable housing, real renter’s rights, and rent control. We also have to stand up and fight the rent hikes and evictions that are happening in the here and now.
In some apartment buildings, tenants have starting organizing to fight back. They have won extra time, and thousands of dollars relocation assistance. If your rent is going up, please share your story and let me know if you would like to fight back. Call my office at (206) 684-8016 and share this link with your friends.
