Reform the Rent Guidelines Board.

Tenants & Neighbors reports that not one of the 5 Rent Guidelines Board members representing the "public"  participated in the RGB's discussion at the hearing two days ago. (There are also 2 members representing tenants and 2 members representing landlords.)

Last Year's Rally .  .  . 
All RGB members are appointed by the Mayor - and we need more accountability.
Let's Reform the RGB. 
Come to a press conference 

  • Monday, April 16 
  • at 11 AM 
  • at City Hall.  

Assembly Member Brian Kavanagh, State Senator Daniel Squadron and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn will be gathering on the steps of City Hall to host a press conference in support of our RGB reform bill, A06394/S0741.  The bill would give the City Council advice and consent powers in
RGB appointments, expand the qualifications for public members, and allow board members of tenant organizations to serve on the RGB.  Please join us, and bring your neighbors!
