Your Call Election Special: Rent control measures in the Bay Area

Every Thursday through Election Day, Rose Aguilar will host a special second hour of Your Call at 11am focused on local and state elections, the voting system, and the democratic process in California.

This week, we’ll discuss rent control measures on the ballot in Burlingame, San Mateo, Mountain View, Oakland, Alameda, and Richmond. We'll also go over some of the 789 bills on California Governor Jerry Brown's desk. He has until September 30th to sign or veto them.
