Buckle your seat belts. On tonight’s episode, TRD reporter Georgia Kromrei talks tenant and landlord issues with progressive powerhouse Sen. Julia Salazar, Time Equities CEO Francis Greenburger, Housing Justice for All’s Cea Weaver and Belkin Burden LLP’s Sherwin Belkin.
TRD senior managing editor Erik Engquist said it best in a tweet Saturday: “This panel is really something to behold. Sherwin Belkin is a top landlord attorney, with endless stories about tenants abusing the system. Cea Weaver of @4HousingJustice is a top tenant organizer, with endless stories about landlords abusing the system. If tenants weaponized a human and put her in office, they’d do no better than @SalazarSenate. Francis Greenburger is a major landlord who’d like peace — but Weaver just started a rent strike.”
On Friday, cancel-rent protestors crashed Gov. Cuomo’s press conference. With the May 1 rent strike, which landlords called disgusting, tensions between tenants and landlord groups have never been higher. You won’t want to miss our discussion tonight, as both sides sit down together.
