Tenant Relocation Assistance

Dear City Council,

I am disappointed to learn that the Tenant Relocation Assistance draft
ordinance is not on your agenda 1/29/2019. This ordinance is an Urgent
matter. The more delay in addressing this problem, the more tenants are
harmed as they are displaced without a safety net.

As a 40 year Menlo Park resident and Menlo Park Business owner, I have seen
the housing crisis develop and negatively affect the residents of our
community. The forcing out of working class and low income tenants is
morally wrong. I am on the board of Foundation for a College Education in
East Palo Alto and work directly with students and families. Our students
and their families live in East Menlo Park and East Palo Alto. The stories
of displacement due to tremendous rent increases is heartbreaking. One
student says she and her family were given 2 weeks notice to leave their
home of 13 years. They were forced to sleep in friends' garages and
similar while they sought to find housing.

I urge you to put this ordinance on your agenda and support its passage as
soon as possible.
