Council Member Ben Kallos Commends Mayor's Choices for City Rent Guidelines Board

 

New York, New York -- The following statement can be attributed to NYC Council Member Ben Kallos (District Five, Manhattan):

 

"I commend Mayor de Blasio for appointing pro-tenant voices with strong expertise to the city’s Rent Guidelines Board. For the millions of renters in New York City, these choices provide hope and comfort. In 2011, nearly a third of all New Yorkers spent more than half of their income on rent. With unsustainable numbers like these, I call on the Board to institute a rent freeze to allow tenants the time they need to get back on their feet."
