Statement from 32BJ President Hector Figueroa on Passing of Mayor de Blasio’s Housing Plan

Posted 3/22/16 | Filed in

“We congratulate Mayor de Blasio and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito for passing a plan that will create more affordable housing for the city’s working families. This is a victory for hard-working New Yorkers, including our 70,000 NYC members, who want to continue to live in New York City, raise their families here and remain here as they get older. Affordable housing is an issue of paramount importance to a broad swath of New Yorkers, and the passionate advocacy that these groups showed during the legislative process helped make this plan even better. Now we have an effective blueprint to ensure that that working people need get more of the housing they desperately need.”
