Reaching Out to Mayor de Blasio on Housing Plan Op-Ed: Real Estate’s Attempt to Co-opt the Affordable Housing Discussion

Gotham Gazette recently published an op-ed by GVSHP about the Real Estate Board of New York’s attempts to influence public policy and discourse about affordable housing and preservation measures, though their words often contradict the considerable money and resources they have put into influencing legislation and elections affecting these issues – read the op-ed here.

The op-ed comes on the heels of GVSHP’s publication of its report “Check the Facts and Consider the Source: Campaign Cash and REBNY’s Real Record on Affordable Housing.”  The issues are made especially relevant by recent revelations regarding REBNY’s possible connection to recent corruption scandals in Albany, as reported by the New York Times and other media outlets.
