Dear Mayor Ohtaki and Menlo Park Councilmembers,

My name is Saira Bates. I’m a resident of Redwood City and work in Menlo Park.  I am writing to express my support for tenantrelocation assistance in the event of no-fault evictions and price gouging. Thispolicy is about making sure that tenants who get a large rent increase don'tend up sleeping in their cars, on the streets, or on the waitlist for one ofour shelters. This is about fairness. No one should become homeless through nofault of their own.

I own a home now, but as a young person I have experienced first-handwhat it’s like not having a place to live. As a mature adult now, I’m still beingaffected by the housing issues in the community. All of my grown children havemoved away after college because they could not afford to live here.  The housing crisis that we have in the BayArea is bad enough; let’s do everything we can to institute a fair housingpolicy to make our community stronger.   

Respectfully submitted,

Saira Bates
