Re: “Oakland Tenant Advocates File Ballot Initiative to Strengthen Rent Control and Eviction Protections

The Oakland Rent Board is composed of 2 tenant representatives, 2 landlord representatives and 3 supposedly independent representatives who are homeowners. Two renters as opposed to five landed people who tend to vote together on any issue that is slightly nuanced. The City of Oakland is composed of 60% renters and so the Board is very unbalanced. The Board needs to be reformed because of competency issues and re-balanced to reflect the 60% of Oakland citizens who are renters.

The Rent Board is currently undergoing a performance audit by the office of the City Auditor, an independent city agency.
