In Mountain View, where nearly 60% of residents are renters, the average monthly rent jumped more than 50% from 2011 to 2015. In response, advocates in many small Bay Area cities, including Mountain View, Burlingame and San Mateo, have put rent control measures on November's ballot. Forum debates these measures and discusses what it means that campaigns for rent control -- normally found in large urban areas -- are migrating to the suburbs.
