Mayor Mueller and Council Members: I am writing not as a Redwood City city council member but as a housing advocate, who is very concerned about the displacement of thousands of families from our communities. I commend the City for taking steps to protect tenants in Menlo Park. On the other hand, I urge you not to use the Redwood City ordinance as a model. We are facing the closure of three schools due to the loss of families and the inability of the district to hire and retain teachers, who are also being displaced from our community. By means testing your ordinance at 80%, you will not be protecting teachers or members of your own staff. I urge you to adopt the ordinance originally proposed by your Housing Commission. It will actually protect tenants, and I applaud the commission members for their thoughtful proposal. Thank you for your consideration of protections for the most vulnerable in your community.Diana Reddy Sent on my Samsung Galaxy S7 edge.
