Rent Control Falls Short of the Ballot in Multiple California Cities
"Voters in Pasadena, Long Beach, and Inglewood won’t get a chance to vote in November on whether to adopt rent control policies in those cities," reports Elijah Chiland. "Supporters of ballot initiatives calling for rent control in all three cities did not garner enough valid signatures to qualify the measures for the fall election."
Advocates in Pasadena and Long Beach didn't collect enough signatures in time to qualify for the ballot. The organization Uplift Inglewood did turn in the required number of 14,000 signatures, "but more than half were found to be invalid, according to Inglewood City Clerk Yvonne Horton."
