The 21st Senate District is primarily a residential community with a significant number of large apartment complexes. Thus, the issue of affordable housing is one that is especially worrisome to me. Therefore I have tackled the issue in Albany by:

* Advocating for affordable housing throughout the state

* Co-sponsored legislation that manages the transition of the Mitchell-Lama Housing

* Proposed legislation that would increase the Housing Trust Fund to a $100 million

* Drafted legislation that creates penalties for landlords who refuse to make accommodations for disabled tenants

* Introduced legislation that increases the Homestead Exemption to $500,000

* Voted to increase the penalties and set restrictions on predatory lending

* Drafted legislation requiring counties to develop plans and task force to address homelessness
