CASA HOSTS THE PEOPLES' RGB

New Settlement Community Center | 1501 Jerome Ave @ 172 St, the Bronx
Getting there: 4 or D train to 170th St

The Rent Guidelines Board (RGB) - a nine member body appointed by Mayor Bloomberg responsible for regulating rents for nearly 2.5 million tenants - has refused to host public hearings outside of Manhattan.

Given Bloomberg's less-than-stellar record on housing, this still comes as a shock - so tenants from all over the city are encouraged to join CASA (Community Action for Safe Apartments) to be heard.  


It's important to keep up the energy and go to the "official" Rent Guidelines Board (RGB) events":
