A day after affordable housing advocates protested outside of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Albany office, a tenant-rights group plans to push Senate Majority Leader John Flanangan on the issue as well.
Housing advocates and demonstrators plan to demonstrate at Flanagan’s Long Island office later today and call for stronger rent-law protections as regulations are due to expire June 15.
The demonstrators will plan to “move in” to the office if they aren’t assured rent control regulations will be protected, according to one of the event’s organizers.
At the same time, the Alliance For Tenant Power plans to release a letter knocking Flanangan (and really the Senate GOP at large) for the power wielded by developers like Glenwood Management, which has played a role in the indictment of former Majority Leader Dean Skelos.
Here's a blueprint for targeting Flanagan on education issues as well.
