RE: OPPOSE AB 2690 (Low) and AB 2895 (Quirk-Silva) – RENT CONTROL MEASURES
Dear Assemblymember [INSERT NAME]:
I am the owner/manager of ____mobilehome park in ______ (city). I strongly oppose AB 2690 (Low) and AB 2895 (Quirk-Silva) because they limit my ability to provide safe, secure, and affordable housing at a time when affordable housing stock is critical.
Mobilehome parks are an essential asset and opportunity to contribute towards a solution to our statewide housing crisis, and these restrictive and punitive measures prevent me and my colleagues from working to provide homes for people who need them at an affordable price in a time when people are struggling to find safe, secure and high-quality housing for their families.
Both of these bills, if passed, would create a great deal of uncertainty in how mobilehome parks operate in the future.
Please vote no on AB 2690 and AB 2895.
[YOUR NAME, PARK NAME]
