Meet Kingston’s New Rent Guidelines Board

Diana Lopez-Martinez is employed by For the Many, a progressive advocacy group that was a major force behind the city’s recently adopted Good Cause Eviction Law and advocated for the ETPA housing emergency declaration. In answering a question about qualifications to be a representative, Lopez-Martinez described herself as a homeowner who has rented to two people over the past three and a half years. Lopez-Martinez application also touts her fluency in Spanish and work on behalf of the city’s Latino immigrant community.

In addition to her work with For the Many, Lopez-Martinez listed affiliations with Planned Parenthood, the Ulster Immigrant Defense Network and the Worker Justice Center.

“I want to be part of this board because I would like to represent the communities I work with,” Lopez-Martinez wrote on her application. “I also have seen the drastic changes over the years which are concerning and want to help out by giving meaningful input.”



For too long, greedy corporations, billionaires, and political elites have used their wealth and power to rig our country against us. We’re fighting to put power back in our hands.
