Re: “Berkeley Landlord Tax Easily Passes

The final quote from Krista Gulbransen makes me feel uneasy; it almost sounds like a veiled threat. My assumption in voting for Measure U1 was that the tax was significant but not unsustainablethat profit margins would cover a large part of the cash going to taxes. Is there any way of measuring the real effect that this will have on landlords ability to make repairs and upgrades to old buildings? Aren't there laws on the books to ensure that necessary maintenance is done?

Sincerely, someone who lives in an old building in Berkeley.

P.S. it strikes me that 166% is a very misleading and alarmist way of explaining a tax hike from 1.08% to 2.88%.
