To Menlo Park Council members

I am a longtime resident of Menlo Park and moved from my first home in Menlo Park to another house in Menlo Park. I chose to rent that first house rather than sell it. That was 37 years ago.

It is not always easy to be a landlord but I have been blessed with some wonderful tenants. We call my rental home "Happy House"because so many children have been born there.

I maintain my property - inside and out - and tenants tend to stay until their situation changes. I raise the rent to cover rising costs and make improvements to keep my tenants, rather than have short-term turnovers.

I am not in favor of rent control for Menlo Park.

One of my family members owns a rental building in San Francisco and rent control has created the worst problems for them. Renters know the law is on their side!

Restrictions, legal demands and actions favoring tenants over landlords would influence my decisions on whether to sell or continue to rent my property. A sale of course lowers the number of rentals available in Menlo Park. And buyers are eager to buy in Menlo Park!

Yours most sincerely,
Mrs. Jean Clansky
