In these tough economic times, Barry believes that the City must create a fairer property tax system for co-op and condo owners who are currently taxed at a much higher rate than single family homes. City Hall’s irrational disparity in the law has led to co-op and condo owners seeing tax increases that are nearly double that of single family homeowners this year. As our council member, Barry will work to bring fairness and parity to this system to protect many of the middle class families in our neighborhood.
Barry will also be a strong advocate for working and middle class families in rent regulated homes. Barry will work to strengthen our rent stabilization laws to preserve our affordable housing for future generations.
