HERE ARE SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR WHAT TO SAY TO YOUR COUNCILOR.
**Please call your District Councilor and the 4 At-Large Councilors**
My name is (your name) __________ and I am a member/concerned resident of (member group and/or neighborhood) __________. I’m calling to urge you (your city councilor’s name) ___________ to come out in favor of the proposed Jim Brooks Stabilization Act NOW, and to work with your colleagues to get this law introduced and passed.
No‐fault evictions by corporate landlords are displacing many families in my neighborhood, and City Council action is urgently needed to stop this. We also hope you urge the committee to hold a fast hearing. Will you please support the Jim Brooks Stabilization Act and encourage your fellow colleagues to do the same?
For Councilors Jackson, Pressley, Wu, and Campbell
My name is (your name) ____________, and I am a constituent of yours. I am calling to thank you for your support for The Jim Brooks Stabilization Act. I am also calling to ask that you continue your support by encouraging your colleagues who are less committed to support the stabilization act. As you know, displacement is an urgent matter that is affecting so many of your constituents and our neighborhoods. We need protections such as the Jim Brooks Stabilization Act to address this crisis now.
**If leaving a voicemail message: “You can reach me at (Your phone number) ___________ or email me at (your email address) ___________ (and spell it out). Thank you and I look forward to your call to discuss this further.”
