Oppose TR ordinance

Dear Council Member,

 My immigrant grandparents realized their dream and bought a property in
Menlo Park in 1947. My grandfather remodeled the existing two structures
and made a beautiful home. Their goal was to provide economic security for
themselves, and for their only daughter, my mother, by creating some rental
property income. My mother is 94 years old, lives in Menlo Park and counts
on this rental income to support herself.

Your proposed ordinance will interfere with the right we deserve to use and
manage our property in the way we see fit to support my elderly mother at
the end of her life.

*Rent control is bad policy. * It will hurt us. We are not responsible
for the lack of housing stock in the area. Don’t penalize us small owners
who are good, reasonable landlords and want to use our property to support
the needs of our own family.

*I implore you to abandon enacting any form of rent control.* Extract the
remedy from all the corporate interests thriving in Menlo Park.

People work a lifetime to prepare for their economic security at the end of
their lives. Please allow us to use our assets in the way we need without
government hindrance, and economic constraint.
