Is Rent Control Needed in Montgomery County? (Video)

“21 This Week” host Casey Aiken debates with Democratic activist Susan Heltemes and Republican activist Jerry Cave about County Council member Mark Erlich’s proposal for new regulations to prevent rent gouging. Aiken argues rent control does not encourage landlords to value long term relationships with tenants. While Heltemes argues the increasing numbers of elderly residents on fixed income who rent in the county need protection. Republican activist Jerry Cave weighs in and argues rent control does not work. You can watch the debate here.
