In a strange turn of events surely to provoke howls of protest, the Alameda Renters Coalition argument against Measure L1, the city-sponsored rent control measure, in favor of the coalition’s own, more strict, initiative, Measure M1, will not appear in the voter guide.

Alameda’s city clerk provided Action Alameda News this morning with three written arguments related to Measure L1.

One, an argument for the city’s measure, the drafting of which was lead by a committee of city councilmembers Marilyn Ashcraft and Jim Oddie, who had in fact voted against putting the measure on the ballot, will appear in the voter guide.

Two arguments against the measure were submitted; one signed by Jill Broadhurst, executive director for the East Bay Rental Housing association, will appear in the voter guide.

The second argument against the measure was signed by Eric Strimling on behalf of the Alameda Renters Coalition, urging voters to reject the city’s measure in favor of the coalition’s own measure; it won’t appear in the voter guide.

City clerk Lara Weisiger explained that Broadhurst’s argument was selected by random drawing to appear in the voter guide.

Election officials will revert to a random drawing to choose between competing arguments submitted by filers who appear to be of equal stature.

All three arguments are included below.
