Happy New Year, NYC Tenants!

As we move into 2016, the tenant movement is gearing up for critical fights to defend our affordable housing against relentless attacks from landlords and the real estate industry. Met Council remains at the forefront of those efforts--and as always, we require your engagement and support.

To kick off the new year, Met Council is holding a Winter Fundraiser at the home of Bill Samuels, Chair of EffectiveNY and host of "Effective Radio with Bill Samuels." Bill and EffectiveNY have been waging a sustained battle against corruption in Albany, the kind of the corruption that lets real estate maintain its stranglehold over our elected officials. We are grateful to Bill for opening his home for this fundraiser that will allow us to continue doing the important work of organizing tenants to fight against the corrupting influence of landlords and big real estate on Albany, and we welcome him as a valuable ally to New York City tenants.

So join Bill and Met Council, enjoy some wine, and support the future of the tenant movement!

Thursday January 28, 6 - 8 PM
22 E. 18th St., NY, NY Apt. 4E
Suggested Donation: $100

Gov. Cuomo's State of the State

Governor Cuomo offered some good things in his 2016 State of the State  speech such as
and some less good things, like passing along to NY City between $500 million and $1 billion in additional costs for running the City University of NY, and for Medicaid. But he has now backpedaled from some of those costs.  From Gotham Gazette's Eye Opener: "In his interview on WNYC and interview on NY1 Cuomo presented the argument that measures were included in the budget so that the city and state could find cost savings in CUNY and Medicaid together. Both are dually administered and paid for already."
