Voters in Pasadena, Long Beach, and Inglewood won’t get a chance to vote in November on whether to adopt rent control policies in those cities.
Supporters of ballot initiatives calling for rent control in all three cities did not garner enough valid signatures to qualify the measures for the fall election.
Rent control advocates in Long Beach and Pasadena missed deadlines to turn in petition signatures for the November ballot. A coalition of activists in Inglewood did turn in nearly 14,000 signatures—but more than half were found to be invalid, according to Inglewood City Clerk Yvonne Horton.
