I would like to continue to live in Culver City and for my daughter to attend school here. Any further increases in my rent will force me to move out of my home. Thank you for addressing this in the meeting tomorrow. I tried submitting my comment , but it did not accept my submission. Thank you

To have no rent control and then all of a sudden overnight to 3% is unfair. How about 8% , or let us raise our units to market value first. It’s tough for landlords to find affordable contractors but you don’t put a limit on what they can charge per hour.

We need permanent protection for renters. I have been a renter in Culver City for 26 years; the last 24 of them in my current residence. I raised my family here and am active in the community - I have been a senior level trainer for the CCFD's Community Emergency Response Team since 2002, and a CERT volunteer since 2001. I am a worker at a state university, and have a small psychotherapy practice in Culver City. At the CSU, we have born the brunt of economic recession, especially during and after 2008, when we were furloughed and had a 10% pay cut. I am an outstanding tenant, yet I experience the same anxieties regarding housing insecurity that so many people share. Culver City has in the past had NO renter protections. Having this one year protection has made a significant difference in my feelings of security, especially now that I am a senior. In these highly uncertain times, renters need even more protection. We can help protect small, responsible property owners by supporting measures that will provide them with state/federal voucher support so they don't feel compelled to raise the rents. The rents are already out of reach for many of us, and made far worse by the speculation and gouging we have seen in recent years. Protect our community - we need permanent rent control!

I have been a renter in Culver City for 20 years in abuilding built 1955. 2019 I have received 2 rent increases. The rent is expected to keep rising even with rent control. Currently, the rent is 50% of my income. I work from home as a teacher with reduced income during breaks.
