East Palo Alto Council New Rent Board Next Week

Original post made by Pay Attention , East Palo Alto, on Jul 25, 2020

I’’m trying to pay more attention to local issues in my town so I listen to meetings and read lots of comments. I see the city council will be appointing rent control board members next week. Some of the aplicants are involved with the big landlord by being on some sort of committee with them. This makes me suspicious because it seems like a public relations thing or worse. I hope they don’t make it worse for renters by picking landlord buddies. We have too much corona virus cases here so this is no time for two faced commissioners.

Is Gail Dixon still on the rent board? She is a convicted tax felony and caused hundreds of EPA families big tax penalties. I was surprised to see her on the rent board with her history of fraud and theft.

James Brown maybe the city doesn’t know about her? I just checked and there’s Gail Wilkerson on that commission. Is that the same lady? Was she caught?
