很多BAHN的members参加了1/27/2016 San Jose 的council meeting反对city把租金年增长率从8%调到2%，BAHN的队员也代表BAHN发了言，从数据上表示2%对房东的伤害有多大，比如，水费涨了10%，垃圾费7%，人工费10%+，等等来证明2%的不合理性，还有大部分的members述说了作为小房东的心酸，都是用业余、休息时间管理房子，收入微薄可怜，2%只能把小地主挤出租赁市场。成员们个个据理力争、有礼、有据、有节，得到所有与会者的一致赞扬和掌声！
A lot BAHN members participated the city council meeting in San Jose on Jan. 27, 2016 RE Rent Ordinance change, especially city’s discussion about adjusting annual rent increase from 8% to 2%. Most BAHN members gave speeches to express how much the 2% annual increase would impact to small housing providers and make their operation of rental properties much harder based on the much larger cost increase such as 10% utility fee increase, garbage 7%, labor 10%, etc. Their speeches got a lot of applause from audience. BAHN members showed our manner, reasons, respects to others when giving speeches. Hey Ray to all participated BAHN members!!!
