WSNA members and other tenant groups filled four buses to Albany last Tuesday for this year’s Tenant Lobby Day, where we pressed state legislators to support the tenant-friendly goals of the Real Rent Reform campaign.
We attended a rally with City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and our local State Senator Tom Duane and Assembly Member Linda Rosenthal, then trekked around the legislative office building meeting with legislators.
Our local elected officials are already supporting the Real Rent Reform goals, so we had friendly conversations with State Senator Liz Krueger and Assembly Members Dick Gottfried, Micah Kellner and Linda Rosenthal. It’s not every day that we sit around a conference room in Albany, scheming about how to pass new legislation!
