Krueger Weighs in On Landlords' Love for Espada
March 24th, 2011

I cant help but wonder what kind of trade association chooses a man currently under Federal indictment for embezzling millions of dollars as their beacon of leadership? If I were a member of the RSA, I would be mortified by the notion that a criminal is given such reverence for the past successes of my trade organization,” Sen. Liz Krueger said in a just-released statement responding to comments made by Rent Stabilizatiion Association president Joe Strasburg. Strasburg recently told landlords that indicted former Sen. Pedro Espada saved the industry. The backlash against those comments is rolling in.

In 1997 and 2003 Joe Bruno, Dean Skelos and the Republican Majority were able to weaken rent regulation laws that affect millions of people, outside of their own districts, because they didnt have a strong Democratic Governor to standing up for the best interests of New Yorks middle class citizens,” Krueger’s statement continues. “Well, now the RSA has the right to be worried. They picked their leadership to be Pedro Espada, and we picked Andrew Cuomo. I’ll stand with my strong Democratic Governor; they can stand with Pedro.

    Liz Krueger voted to make Espada majority leader and chair of the housing committee. One can only assume she did it because she thought it best for her and her district. For her to now point the finger at others makes her an outsized, self righteous, holier than thou, hippocrite.
