To whom it may concern

This will show what I received from a COLA from SSD

From 2010-2019. I was enrolled in SSD in 2010 and never

Received a COLA until Jan.2019. The COLA was only $45 in

A 9 year period while my rent skyrocketed.

I STARTEd paying $575 for rent in 2010 and by
2016 the cost was $800 and that year I moved in with my

daughter because I couldn't afford that apartment. My

Daughter was also struggling. And every year SS would write

And say I didn't get a COLA because the cost of living

Didn't go up. I wondered how stupid they thought people

On SSD were.

Anyways something has to be done about these
Out of control rents. Middle income people can't even

Afford them and people like me that are on a fixed

Income have an even harder time. They want 60%-65% of

My income.,

As Bernie says, there is a huge disparity

Between the classes and it just keeps getting wider.

So, this is my reason for not being able to afford rent

and supporting rent control. Something has to be done

Before Denver forces the people to move from here.
