Strengthen and Renew Rent Stabilization
As a resident of Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village, and as one of New York State’s 2.5 million rent-regulated tenants, I am calling on you not only to renew, but also to strengthen the rent-regulation laws this year.
Renters -- like property owners --need to know what our monthly expenses will be. For many of us, a rent-stabilized apartment makes it possible for our families to continue living here.
I ask that you support strengthening of rent regulations by ending vacancy decontrol. I also ask you to reject any proposal that jeopardizes hard-fought tenant legal victories— like Roberts v. Tishman Speyer. We understand the strength and power of the landlord lobby and we need you to stand up in defense of the many renters who need your help this year.
