Rent stabilization is at risk!
City Council is quickly moving towards a vote on Ordinance 22-37, which would weaken rent stabilization protections across the city, targeting renters living in affordable housing and newly constructed apartments (many of which are rented by people with disabilities who benefit from ADA accessibility in newer buildings).
“Excluding affordable housing from rent stabilization would remove protections for nearly 20,000 St. Paul renters, including myself and my neighbors, who are disproportionately low-income, BIPOC, disabled, immigrant and elderly — the people who need protections most. The council should reject these proposals when they make their final vote on Ordinance 22-37.” – Saint Paul renter Katherine Banbury in the Minnesota Reformer
Take action: contact our City Councilmember Rebecca Noecker at 651-266-8620 or [email protected] and let her know why it is important to you that she oppose Ordinance 22-37, and stand with her constituents who voted to keep rent stabilization strong for everyone.
