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!!!
