The MRA1441 Supports the idea of a rent freeze but opposes the county departments' suggestion to allow a 3% automatic rent increase, and requests to include remedies for residents with long term leases. Come and support Mobilehome residents and other vulnerable individuals on Tuesday, September 4, 2018, in the Kenneth Hahn hall of Administration at 10:00 PM.
