“As an industry, our business is under attack at every level of government.”

Thank you to the Board of Directors of the Apartment Association, California Southern Cities for your trust and confidence in me as I set out on this mission to advance the goals and objectives of this organization. For 97 years, AACSC has been on the front lines, successfully advocating for the rights of rental housing providers, providing outstanding member services and with our Board of Directors, Staff, and members like you, we will continue to be successful for many years to come.

I have had the pleasure of speaking directly with many of our members who are small property owners throughout Southern California. Most of the members have shared their journey of the many sacrifices, savings, risk-taking, and hard work to build a robust rental housing portfolio. It is not easy to manage a rental property business, particularly during COVID-19.

We face so many challenges from continued eviction moratorium, Senate bill 91, and substantial remodels regulations. As an industry, our business is under attack at every level of government. We will continue to fight every battle and never surrender! Now, more than ever, we need your support in both time and money.

In the coming weeks and months, I will call on you to help meet the needs of our organization, from maintaining and securing critical infrastructure to advancing our organization’s priorities and objectives. We will provide opportunities for you to speak out, write letters and make phone calls to help change the trajectory of local, state, and federal policy and laws to protect our rights to manage our buildings and receive a fair return on our investments.

We will continue to provide our member services with the best forms in the industry, counseling services, and much more. We will continue to innovate and deliver the best resources and tools.

I am honored and humbled with being part of theAACSC leadership team and look forward to getting to know all our members.

On to Victory!
