Press Conf for Campaign Finance Reform & Better Rent Laws - Monday, 10/28 at 4 PM

PRESS CONFERENCE AT 4 PM (Moreland Commission at 5 PM) 

OCT 28 AT JAVITS CENTER ENTRANCE
(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 
Hearing

Monday, October 28th, ***4pm***

Jacob Javits Center Entrance
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 
Albany.

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.)
