Tenants’ Rights

Any real commitment to preserving the diversity and unique character of Silver Lake MUST start with protecting the rights of the 65% of residents who are renters.

I will fight for tenant’s rights by lobbying for the repeal of Costa-Hawkins and the Ellis act, liasing with LA Tenants union, establishing lines of communication between Silver Lake tenants re: rent actions, open lines of communication between tenants and landlords for equitable dispute resolution, encourage more TIC (tenants-in-common buildings), and aggressively opposing the illegal use of rent-controlled units as hotel rooms (eg, AirBnB).
