Roving camera 5-2-19: Do you think Boston voters would support a return to rent control?

Yes, they would. Bostonians are a savvy electorate. Housing costs are starting to hurt renters and homeowners alike. — Curtis Rollins, Staff Assistant, Roxbury
Yeah, we need to. There’s too many people who can’t afford market rents. — Llewyen Dingle-Ivy, Administrative Assistant, Dorchester
I don’t know. Rent is too high in Roxbury. It’s not affordable for working-class people. Up the street, they want $2,200 for a 1 bedroom apartment. — Walker Haynes, Retired, Mattapan
Yes, because the housing market is not affordable to buy or to rent. — Theresa Gaul, Retired, Roxbury
Yes. Right now, rents are astronomical. It’s why there are so many homeless families in Boston. $1,900 for a two-bedroom apartment in Roxbury is ridiculous. — Donald Turner, Kitchen Supervisor, Roxbury
No. Because the landlords wouldn’t back it. — Myrtha Clendinen, Homemaker, Boston
