Advocacy group Pasadenans Organizing for Progress on Wednesday issued the results of a poll it said showed 69% of Pasadena voters would support a rent control ordinance in Pasadena.

At the same time, the group said its poll showed an even larger number of voters – 82% – would support a law preventing landlords from evicting tenants unless there is a valid reason, such as not paying rent, destruction of property, or exhibiting loud or violent behavior.

The group said the telephone survey of 700 Pasadenans was conducted by David Binder Research from January 30 through February 5, 2019 and has an error rate of +/- 3.7%.

The poll also reported that rent control had 81% support in District 5, Councilmember Victor Gordo’s district, with the lowest support, 61%, in Councilmember Andy Wilson’s District 7, according to the group.
