Quote Title Goes Here

"Prop. 21 provides no protections for seniors and would hurt senior renters and homeowners alike. For those seniors relying on their single-family home for their retirement nest eggs or to help fund their care later in life, Prop 21 pulls the rug out from under them … And for senior renters on fixed incomes, Prop 21 would result in less affordable rental housing options. Seniors should vote No on 21."
Gary Passmore
President, Congress of California Seniors

Hundreds of thousands of California seniors rely on rental properties to fund their retirements, pay for health care, and fund nursing care as they age.

These seniors are part of the over 2/3rds of California landlords who are small mom and pop operations. Prop 21 will be hard on these seniors.

Prop 21 repeals protections for homeowners and could reduce home values by up to 20%. Prop 21 would put as many as 539 rental boards in charge of housing, with bureaucrats deciding what people can or cannot do with their properties, and would give these rent boards unlimited power to add fees on housing, which will ultimately be passed on to tenants in the form of higher rents.

And Prop 21 contains no protections for seniors or the disabled and no provisions to build more affordable housing for seniors or to help combat homelessness. Vote No on Prop 21.
