Good turnout: good coverage on TV/radio

show up Thursday, even for just an hour!
can't show up? call Rudy! call any of your many politicians!
just don't sit there: do something!


Additionally, in years when owners’ costs did not rise, the RGB
increased rents anyway, based on projections that costs might
rise in the coming year. For example, in 1998, owners’ costs
rose only 0.1%, yet the board raised rents 2% for a one-year
lease and 4% for two years, based on projections that owners’
costs might rise sharply in 1999. They did not, rising a virtually
invisible 0.03%, yet the RGB last year voted the same increases
as in 1998.

So tenants have already paid for the somewhat higher costs
owners claim this year, based on a temporary spike in fuel
