Prop 21 Hurts Homeowners & Renters

As a homeowner, it’s easy to lose sleep in this economy. Prop 21 will make things even worse. It will reduce home values by up to 20% and eliminate legal rights of homeowners.

Prop 21 has no protections for seniors or veterans. And it even allows landlords to raise rents on the lowest income Californians by 15%.

That’s why homeowners and renters rejected this same bad idea two years ago.

For a better night’s sleep, vote No on 21.
