"On Monday, January 25, before a packed chamber, on a 3-2 vote, the City Council voted to oppose Rent Control in Pacifica. After 4 hours of public comment and well after midnight, the Council wrapped-up a long debate over Rent Control with a motion from Councilman John Keener and a Second from Mayor Sue Digre to support rent control; voting against rent control were Mayor Pro Tem Mike O'Neill and Councilmembers Karen Ervin and Mary Ann Nihart. A second vote was taken supporting the creation of an advisory committee to help draft a 'Best Practices Advisory' that would provide guidelines for the rental housing market. The idea of an advisory came from a model used in Healdsburg, California. Councilman John Keener was the only member to oppose the Advisory."
