It's strange behavior for a fat cat. Five mornings a week, Jim Smith rises at midnight to work the graveyard shift as a mail handler. When he gets off at 9:30 a.m., he begins his building maintenance chores. Smith had hoped to quit the Postal Service long ago, but he made one big mistake. He plowed his hard-earned money into rental housing in Berkeley, where he and many other working-class landlords were stuck with 1970s rents and no way to recoup investments in their own property.

A 300-member group of Berkeley landlords and homeowners has launched an effort that would crush one of California's strongest rent control laws. The initiative by the Black Property Owners Assn. would exempt from rent control at least 11,428 Berkeley dwellings, or more than 70% of the apartments and houses covered by the city's 10-year-old law, according to rent control officials. The measure could go before voters in November.
