Reform and re-balance the Oakland CA Rent Board

Re-balance the composition of the Oakland Rent Board to more fairly represent the tenants in Oakland CA.

Why is this important?

At present there are only 2 tenant representatives out of 7. The others are all landed representatives - landlords and homeowners who tend to vote with each other. Renters comprise over 58% of the population of Oakland and there needs to a fairer balance on the Rent Board. How many tenants over the years have been harmed by a Board that generally votes with landlord interests? How many more tenants will be harmed before the City Council reforms the makeup of the Board?
Please sign this petition to ask the Oakland CA City Council to reform and re-balance the Rent Board and stop harming the rights of tenants.
