As a lifelong homeowner in the district, Rafael Espinal knows the importance of affordable housing and the need for homeowners to have a stake in the local community. He will work with community based organizations and local elected officials to further expand affordable housing services.
Rafael also understands that homeowners are being hit hard with property taxes. Property taxes create an environment that is unfair to both owners and tenants. When in Albany, he will look to vote on legislation to put a tax cap on property taxes across the city.
