l would strongly support efforts to form an association of mobile food vendors and to improve their safety on public streets.
I want to thank Chavez for moving forward with this action. I ask that you consider ways for the street vendors to have a say in all steps of the formation of the association, including ensuring they are getting the information they need to be represented and participate, especially those who may have less access to the internet and in person meetings.
Mobile street vendors have long suffered mistreatment on our city streets, and they would significantly benefit from the establishment of such an association. Thank you for moving forward in their protection.
I am asking the City Council to oppose the Resolution creating a Rental Mediation Program (RMP). Instead, I want the City Council to support the comprehensive Right To Counsel Community Program which is now called Eviction Diversion Program (RTC/EDP). The process by which the Rental Mediation Program was developed did not have any community input. There is no documentation of any research having been done to support the RMP being proposed.
