“Lease-signing proposal attacked: Landlords oppose mayorâ€™s ordinance to push back lease signing to December”, today’s Daily unloads on MSA members and associates (read linked article for snarkily-delivered details), but at least the article does show the near-hysteria of landlords, a mess of them talking about their putative violation of personal liberty under the proposed ordinance (re setting later deadlines for signing leases), as if they were so many Thomas Jeffersons of the real-estate world, in battle with the tyrannical couch-lounging students and their neo-Bolshevik minions infesting our City Council. Well.
I also heard chatter that the landlords at the meeting were denigratory to students. (Surprise!) —I don’t know how this’ll all end up, but is Daily snarkery towards the student side necessarily going to help students’ welfare? The D could have chosen to be a little acerbic to the landlords, too.
(Though the Daily is right to say that there should be maximum student participation and attendance at these meetings, of course, as opposed to student apathy.)
