Take Action For Tenants
Change IS Possible

The only thing standing between tenants and laws that could actually better their lives are three votes. Two members of the village board are supportive, we just need ONE MORE.

We need tenants to put pressure on two holdout votes to get this law passed.

1) Tim Rogers - Mayor
Tim Rogers ran on a liberal platform, and was a supporter of Bernie Sanders and Zephyr Teachout. He got elected because everyone thought he was a great liberal. He fooled us all. Tim has done everything in his power to keep tenant rights off the table. If there was one single person to blame for why there is still tenant abuse in New Paltz, it's Tim Rogers.

2) Dennis Young - Board Member
Dennis Young is a board member with the power to advance this legislation. Even though 75% of his constituents are tenants, he remains unsupportive of our tenant legislation.

Our village only has 7,070 people in it. Your voice matters.
