Housing Fraud: what can the DA do?
Please join me on Tuesday, May 11th @ 5pm at my virtual forum for a conversation about housing fraud and the District Attorney’s role in protecting Manhattan tenants!
For New York City to thrive, its residents must have housing that is secure and safe. I’ve always believed that everybody deserves to be safe at home, that’s why I worked tirelessly on behalf of tenants. In 2019, I led the prosecution of one of the leading no-bid contractors at NYCHA for cheating workers, tenants, and taxpayers by skirting the prevailing wage law on multiple NYCHA jobs across the city. The District Attorney has the power to fight corrupt landlords and contractors who take advantage of loopholes in enforcement and the lack of government oversight, to line their pockets at the expense of tenants and landlords who follow the law.
When I speak with voters, I am constantly reminded of the affordable housing crisis and the troubling rise in homelessness in our city. Make no mistake about it, the criminal actions of corrupt landlords and others in the real estate industry have contributed to these problems. It is long overdue for the DA to stand up to those in power who continue to take advantage of everyday New Yorkers.
