Lori Brown Candidate Statement

Rent control has allowed me to live in our diverse beach community for 40 years. In our ever-changing city there are many challenges that face renters, homeowners and building owners. Hard decisions lie ahead for the rent control board due to undermining of tenant rights, rising rents, loss of housing stock to developers, and proposed state legislation.

As Vice Chair of the Santa Monica Recreation & Parks Commission, I’ve listened to residents and worked closely with city staff, public safety personnel, business owners and community leaders. This has taught me the importance of strong leadership and decision-making in times of crisis.

I lived in a Santa Monica rent-controlled building for 27 years. The opportunity to participate in the city's TORCA program enabled me to purchase my apartment. Today I am an apartment building owner in Santa Monica. As a housing provider, I have attended almost every Rent Control Board meeting for the past five years.

I strongly believe in the goals of the Rent Control Board: controlling residential rents, limiting grounds for eviction, preserving rental housing, encouraging maintenance and ensuring rental-property owners a fair return.
