Suggested email message to Councilmember (please personalize to include your name and address):

Please vote YES on August 1 at 2nd reading of STVR/STRO regulations
Good morning, Councilmember,
Thank you so much for voting to protect our San Diego neighborhoods and to prevent them from becoming commercial districts full of mini hotels. I support your vote to prioritize San Diegans and our neighborhoods over investors; and the primary-residence-only solution to protect our housing stock from investors and to respect the original spirit of the sharing economy. It’s a huge win for all of us in San Diego.
Thank you for your vote and please continue to protect our neighborhoods by voting YES for the amended proposal at the 2nd reading on August 1.
