As threatened, the Alameda landlord lobby — most likely financed by the anti-tenant California Apartment Association (CAA) — has began to circulate a petition to overturn the Just Cause protections we just won!
Don’t be fooled. On June 9, paid signature circulators began obtaining signatures to overturn just cause, all eviction controls, all relocation fees, and even the 5% rent increase trigger! They were using fear-mongering tactics such as yelling, “Help landlords evict drug dealers!” They also have deceptive signs that say, “reasonable rent control.”
Warning: Some petition circulators are lying and misrepresenting themselves, claiming to be Alameda Renters Coalition members. This is a violation of the CA Election Code §18600 and a criminal misdemeanor. If you were deceived, please contact us ASAP so we can help you nullify your signature and file a complaint with the proper authorities.
Here is form for you withdraw your signature. Please fill it out and mail it to Lara Weisiger, City of Alameda, 2263 Santa Clara Avenue Room 380, Alameda, CA 945014
