From the Rent Stabilization Association's website:
"The Rent Stabilization Association (RSA) is the largest trade association in New York City representing 25,000 property owners/agents responsible for approximately one million units of housing. RSA's members range from owners of one small building to large multi-family complexes, cooperatives & condominiums. Our broad representation has allowed us to develop a powerful base for our lobbying programs and the resources to provide a wide assortment of products and services to our members. RSA's goal is to revive free enterprise in New York City's housing market and to maintain its economic viability."
These people run the city. Their campaign contributions speak volumes. They know who to target in order to receive the best return on their investment.
