Is it time to bring rent control back to New Bedford? A member of the New Bedford Facebook group thinks so:

“I think it’s time rent control makes a comeback. The house my sister lives in was just sold. The new landlord wants to go up $140 a month on her rent. She only gets social security. Even someone who works isn’t going to get a $140 a month raise to pay that kind of an increase.” -Pauline St.Don
