Mayoral Candidate Bill de Blasio Wants A Rent Freeze

In keeping with his pro-tenant, pro-affordable housing policies, Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio says that if he's elected, he will push hard for a rent freeze on stabilized apartments. According to the Journal, he also pledged to appoint new pro-tenant members to the Rent Guidelines Board, which convenes every June to vote on rent increases. De Blasio's stance should come as no surprise considering that during this year's circus meeting, he, along with former mayoral hopefuls Christine Quinn and John Liu, advocated for a freeze.
