My goal is to balance the needs of tenants and property owners while looking out for Berkeley’s vulnerable citizens.

A West Berkeley rental property owner, I am running to return as a Commissioner on the Berkeley Rent Stabilization Board. Elected by city residents in 2012, I served a four year term as a Rent Board Commissioner. While Commissioner, I was a Chairperson of the Eviction Section 8 Foreclosure Committee. The rent board needs balanced representation of tenants, landlords and property owners. Reasonable policy development requires the input and viewpoints of various housing stakeholders.
