Statewide Webinar Friday January 27th: Rent Control and Rent Stabilization Lived Experience

View Calendar
01/27/2023 12:00 PM - 01/27/2023 1:00 PM

This presentation will share the lived experience of one landlord who went through the rent control years and kept detailed records of what it was like. We will learn about:

  • What it was like to attend a rent control hearing,
  • How rent control and its repeal changed Cambridge,
  • Which lessons the public needs to remember today as "rent stabilization" threatens to return,
  • And more.

Attendees will leave with additional tools to advocate against a return to rent control and rent stabilization in Massachusetts.

Part of this event will be presented by Linda Levine. Linda is a Cambridge landlord and has been since the rent control years. Linda's volunteering was instrumental in defeating rent control in the 1994 ballot initiative. She is now the MassLandlords Record Scanner reviewing archives held by the city.
