Progressive group wants Kingston panel to require rent reductions

For the Many has urged tenants to show up at a Tuesday, Oct. 25, hearing sponsored by the newly-created Kingston Rent Guidelines Board.

Aaron Narraph Fernando, a For the Many spokesman, said the group is hoping tenants show up at the City Hall hearing, which begins at 6 p.m.
“From passing a local “Good Cause” law to declaring a housing emergency, the Kingston Common Council and Mayor Steve Noble have consistently taken steps this year to protect Kingston’s tenants from rising rents and evictions,” Fernando said in a statement. “Now the city’s new Rent Guidelines Board has the opportunity to continue that work. We’re asking its members to adopt a historic rent reduction, the first of its kind in the state.”

Fernando said such a reduction would “help the residents of nearly 1,300 newly-rent stabilized units afford to live in Kingston and stay in their homes.”



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.
