PRESS CONFERENCE AT 4 PM (Moreland Commission at 5 PM)
(35th St. / 11th Ave.)
There is a direct link between our broken campaign system
and the dismantling of rent regulation.* See the Oct. 27, 2013
NY Daily News.
This is why we must fight for real campaign finance reform,
including public financing and the closure of loopholes that
allow the real estate industry to outspend everyone else. COME:
Press Conference / Moreland Commission
Near 11th Ave / 35th St
*The Moreland Commission Investigating Corruption has changed dates,
locations, and times for the last public NYC hearing to investigate
corruption, as recently as after close of business on Friday.
What does the Moreland Commission
have to do with tenants and rents?
Before the hearing, tenants will host a press conference
to talk about what the Moreland Commission needs to do -
we have a large stake in how the Moreland Commission acts.
It would be a huge blow to the landlords if the LLC loophole
gets closed, hampering their ability to drown out our voice in
REGISTER TO ATTEND THE HEARING THAT FOLLOWS
THE PRESS CONFERENCE HERE.
Remember - this fight is tied to the renewal of the Rent Laws
in 2015; if real estate can continue to give unlimited amounts of
money to campaigns, strengthening and expanding the rent laws
will be nearly impossible. (And getting market rate tenants' rents
regulated won't stand a chance.)
