Stuytown and Peter Cooper Tenants Need Stronger Rent Laws This June — Sign This Petition

The Real Rent Reform Campaign has launched this online petition. It thanks New York State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie for his recent declaration that stronger rent protection laws will be his No. 1 priority. It also tells him that he has tenants behind him in this fight.

A Republican-controlled State Senate and only lukewarm support from the Governor means we must have strong action by the Speaker to increase our chances of winning real pro-tenant reforms when the rent laws are renewed in June. Top priorities include MCI reform, repeal of vacancy destabilization, and for those who moved into our community after 2001, closing the preferential loophole for lower and more stable rent increases upon renewal.

Please SIGN, then SHARE it with friends in ST/PCV and elsewhere. We have a first-round target of 1,000 signatures, and we’d like as many of them as possible by this weekend.

Here is the full link:

Please sign the petition and forward to your friends, neighbors, colleagues, and members. This action is just the beginning of our fight. We’ll be asking you to do more soon.
