Oppose the SF Realtors Greedy Attack on Affordable Housing

San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, San Francisco Board of Supervisors

San Francisco needs truly affordable housing. That’s why a ballot measure recently proposed by the San Francisco Association of Realtors is completely unacceptable.

The measure would double the income levels that qualify for “below market” rate units -- drastically reshaping who can apply for affordable housing.

The measure doesn’t create any new affordable housing. What it does is allow developers to charge higher rents and screen out lower income households.

It’s a dangerous step in the wrong direction. In the midst of an unprecedented affordable housing crisis, this measure would take away housing opportunities for working San Franciscans.

We need to expand the supply of affordable housing in San Francisco, not play politics with affordable development. Sign the petition, stand up for housing affordability and reject the Realtors' Association's misguided ballot measure.

I believe that San Francisco needs truly affordable housing. That’s why I’m demanding that you immediately speak out against a ballot measure recently proposed by the San Francisco Association of Realtors (the so-called "Middle Income Inclusionary Rental Housing Eligibility Ordinance").

In the midst of an unprecedented affordable housing crisis, this measure would take away housing opportunities for working San Franciscans. It’s an unacceptable step in the wrong direction.

I believe we need to expand the supply of affordable housing in San Francisco, not play politics with affordable housing development.

Please join me standing up for housing affordability and publicly rejecting the Association of Realtors misguided ballot measure.
