Property Owners and Contractors Hold Press Conference at City Hall

Group Calls for Fair Rent Reforms Ahead of Assembly Hearing 

Prior to the State Assembly Standing Committee on Housing hearing on May 2nd, over a dozen small rental property owners and contractors gathered in City Hall Park to call out the Assembly Members for their radical proposals to the State rent laws.

The group, led by RSA members Chris Athineos and Stephanie Kirnon, criticized the pro-tenant members of the State Legislature for their lack of consideration of rent-stabilized property owners and the local businesses that perform the work that improves and maintains aging buildings.

Rather than amend the rent laws to protect tenants only, the group called on State Legislators to consider responsible rent reform that will protect both tenants and owners of rent-stabilized apartments. Additionally, Richard Martinez, a local contractor, said that without major capital improvement (MCI) and individual apartment improvement (IAI) work, local businesses, who employ thousands of City residents, would lose an incredible amount of work.

Immediately following the press conference, the building owners and contractors in attendance made their way to 250 Broadway for the hearing and either testified before the Assembly Members or sat in attendance to support the rental housing industry.

The press conference was part of the ongoing effort by RSA’s joint-public relations campaign along with REBNY, CHIP and SPONY. For more information about the campaign, visit www.responsiblerentreform.org
