Landlords Praise Espada
March 24th, 2011

The Times Union posted a YouTube video earlier today of Rent Stabilization Association president Joe Strasburg telling landlords: “The guy who saved this industry was Pedro Espada. The Working Families Party issued a quick response to Strasburg’s comments.

It’s no surprise that the landlords’ association has been relying on backroom deals with legislators in order to stomp on tenants, kill affordable housing, and raise rent. We just didn’t expect them to be so forthright about their connection to criminal enterprise. We applaud their newfound transparency,” said Dan Cantor executive director of the Working Families Party.

Governor Cuomo and the Assembly who Joe Strasburg is apparently no fan of are right to stand up to the landlord lobby. Two million tenants in New York are counting on the Governor and the Speaker to strengthen and extend the rent laws now.

    16 million market-rate tenants, home, condo, and co-op owners are hoping that this idiotic and corrupting set of laws sunsets and gives us the choice of where to live without government interference.

    If you are a free market tenant, please join me at [email protected] so that we can deregulate NYC housing and make housing fairer.
