TKC MUST SEE!!! KC TENANTS SHOW UP AT CITY HALL IN FULL FORCE TO SUPPORT 'BILL OF RIGHTS' ORDINANCE!!!
Our blog community covered the response from "Home Providers" otherwise known as landlords to this rent revolution . . . Today, KC activists showed up in full force at City Hall.
There was some sketpicism about the legislation from committee but the activists were mostly welcomed . . .
The response from KC Tentants today responding to criticism that their efforts would endanger public safety:
LANDLORDS SAY: "Guess you are a lowly tenant that wants everything free."
LANDLORDS SAY: "Buy a house and you don't have to worry about it."
LANDLORDS SAY: "Great lets reward bad behavior. Everyone is a victim I guess."
This is not a drill. The opposition is organizing against our KC Tenants Bill of Rights. They are doing so how we might expect: By spreading lies and nastiness. They think their profits matter more than our lives . . . Somehow these people still get meetings with Councilmembers, and some Councilmembers still take them seriously. (We know why: landlords have money.)
Even their substantive arguments are wrong. Landlords are basing their arguments on an outdated summary, not what was introduced to Council last week.
Don't expect this ordinance to go through right away . . . Clearly council is getting pressure from property owners.
Meanwhile, we thank citizen media and protesters for sharing their side of the story again.
