Tourists Over Tenants

Poor Renters Hit Hard by Board Plan

One such pol is Council speaker Peter Vallone, who is also term-limited and on the bill for Warden's party. With years of pro-landlord legislation under his belt and a mayoral run in his head, Vallone has gone to pains to satisfy the landlord lobby while trying to strike a tenant-friendly posture. So you'd think Vallone would be more ginger about publicly palling around with Strasburg, who once served as his chief of staff. Even better, if Vallone wants to convince tenants that he's truly trustworthy, he could put an end to his campaign's reliance on landlord largesse. At last count, no Democratic mayoral campaign had received more real estate bucks than the speaker's.
