Sue Susman and Council Member Helen Rosenthal and another Stellar tenant leader on MNN TV

Talking about affordable housing :

NYC Councilmember Helen Rosenthal, attorney Sue Susman, Tenant activist Khadijah Canns discuss the future of rent regulation.

Repeal vacancy deregulation (also known as vacancy decontrol) and re-regulate apartments deregulated under vacancy deregulation if rents are below a goodly amount.
Close the loopholes that make affordable apartments unaffordable (Major Capital Improvements, Individual Apartment Improvements, preferential rents, illegal fees, and more).
Keep illegal hotels - including AirBnB - from depleting our stock of affordable housing.
