• Vote NO on Prop F on June 8th Municipal Ballot

    Proposition F (“Renters’ Financial Hardship Applications”) on the June 8 municipal ballot in San Francisco, if passed by the voters, will allow tenants to allege a single condition (unemployment or a specified reduction in income) to be able to file an application for financial hardship under the city’s rent ordinance. If the status is granted, the tenant will be able to avoid paying any increase in rent until the tenant’s financial circumstances improve.

    The Committee to Preserve Rental Housing is working to defeat Proposition F because of the likelihood that passage of the proposition will prompt rental property owners to use the Ellis Act to remove their properties from the rental market, thereby diminishing the supply of rental housing in the city. The committee is joined in its opposition to Proposition F by such diverse organizations as the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association (SPUR), Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club and the San Francisco Chronicle.
