Sisolak vs. Lombardo: Their plans for affordable housing

LVRJ   ·   Link to Article

Henderson resident Carlos Padilla’s rent increased by $400 a month several months ago. When he protested, his landlord said there is no law in Nevada that says property owners cannot raise the rent as high as they want.

Padilla, a Culinary Union member, got involved in the union’s push to implement rental controls in North Las Vegas through the Neighborhood Stability initiative, which failed to get on the ballot in November. He hopes Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, who showed support for the initiative, will win re-election and work to implement rent control across the state.

Padilla joined a few Democratic organizations Thursday for a press conference comparing Sisolak’s record and goals with Clark County sheriff and Republican gubernatorial hopeful Joe Lombardo’s plans to solve the housing crisis.
