Vote “NO” on HOBOKEN PUBLIC QUESTION #1 on Election Day, November 5, 2013
URGENT VOTE COMING NOVEMBER 5TH, 2013 ON RENT CONTROL PROTECTIONS
If you are visiting this website for the first time, the most important thing you need to know is that there is a CRUCIAL VOTE coming up in Hoboken on November 5th, 2013.
Rent Control and your affordable apartment are under attack.
On November 5th, the day of the election, there will be an initiative on the ballot that calls for the COMPLETE and immediate destruction of Hobokens’s longstanding rent control protections.
You can read the actual Rent Control amendment proposed by a local landlords’ group here (pdf).
Rents could be doubled, even tripled.
Most CURRENT tenants will still be protected (until you move out of your apt.), but for current tenants, there is now a target on your back: think about it — you’re the only thing standing between your landlord and the enormous rents he wants and will be able to get if this passes.
THIS INITIATIVE MUST BE VOTED DOWN — AGAIN — JUST AS IT WAS VOTED DOWN LAST YEAR.
Hoboken is facing an emergency.
HFHA needs your help with getting this message out to EVERYONE in town, in our informational, membership and voter-registration drive.

We all must shed our naivite NOW about what’s happening to us and to our town.
We need to become an active CITYWIDE tenants group movement. There are more tenants than landlords in Hoboken. Let’s get the word out now. But we need YOUR help.
