Study Session on Anti-Slumlord Ordinance


This Monday at 5:30 is the City of San Mateo’s study session on its anti-slumlord ordinance. Unfortunately, the usual bad actors have been up to their dirty tricks to try to prevent anything that might help renters. But we’re not going to allow them to keep dragging the conversation into the gutter. And we’re not going to allow them to protect slumlords who bring unsafe and unsanitary housing into our community. So, if like us you believe that the San Mateo City Council has a duty to uphold basic standards of honesty and decency for our city, then write them to encourage them not to cave to the worst of the worst landlords. Here are the City Council’s emails:

dpapan@cityofsanmateo.org
mfreschet@cityofsanmateo.org
rbonilla@cityofsanmateo.org
jgoethals@cityofsanmateo.org
erodriguez@cityofsanmateo.org

Finally, make sure to come out Monday night to help us demonstrate to this City Council that no renter should have to live under conditions which are degrading to their humanity.

Congratulations to Pastor Penny Nixon on Being Named Assembly District 22’s Woman of the Year!


One San Mateo sends its heartfelt congratulations to Pastor Penny Nixon for being named Assembly District 22’s Woman of the Year! Those who know Pastor Nixon know how much she gives of herself to so many different causes, from immigration to housing. Indeed, Pastor Nixon has been a strong ally with One San Mateo in our efforts to shape a more just and equitable housing environment. We are ever grateful to her for having gifted us with some of her much in demand time and moral leadership. So we can tell you from firsthand experience that there could hardly be anyone more deserving of this recognition. Three cheers for Pastor Nixon!
