LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Renters are being gouged

I am 78 and have lived in Las Vegas for over 28 years. I have occupied my current apartment for over 12 years and since I first moved in, the rent has gone up over 50%. I live on a small, fixed income and will soon be homeless unless rent control is enacted here.

I hear of increases from $200 to $300 when a lease is up. This is not only outrageous, but heartless.

Please tell Gov. Steve Sisolak that Las Vegas must have rent controls or thousands of needy seniors like me will be out on the street.
