Great conference call with United Tenants of Albany

On April 20, 2016, SMART ALEC co-founder Matthew Charles Cardinale had the opportunity to participate in a conference call with the United Tenants of Albany and Albany City Councilman Kelly Kimbrough.

During this call, we discussed the potential benefits of Affordable Housing Impact Statements for stakeholders and decisionmakers in Albany; the unique and not-so-unique features of Albany’s affordable housing crisis; and strategy around working for the successful passage of the legislation in Albany. This included a successful media and public relations strategy, as well as a plan to educate other Councilmembers about Albany’s affordable housing needs.

Thank you so much – and we hope to continue to partner with you all on progressive public policy solutions.
