GWEN WILL FIGHT TO GET:

  • Tenant Protection for Nursing Home, Senior, Disabled and other Special-Needs Housing Residents.
  • Rent Regulation for NYCHA Residents.
  • To Preserve Our Historic Buildings and Landsites.
  • Citywide Rent Regulation for all Rental Residential Housing.
  • Accommodation of autistics, particularly outer ID, so as to prevent overreaction and panic by Police and others, when they act out (Gwen is familiar with problems of autism among relatives).

Gwen has proven, time after time, that...


Gwen is the ONE
to get the job DONE!

CAMPAIGN 2013 IS ON!




GWEN SPEAKS OUT AGAINST "INFILL"!
Gwen Goodwin raises awareness to the INFILL issue at the "Our City, Our Homes" Mayoral Candidates Forum on Affordable Housing at Calvary-St. George's Episcopal Church. Gwen is standing with her husband Peter Anderson in the middle, and CommunityVoices Heard member Flenoy Withers III.

On March 14, 2013, a meeting was called by the New York City Housing Authority to advertize and promote "InFill". The "InFill" would build luxury high-rises in Public Housing projects, burying park-like spaces between buildings and creating enormous congestion, while the whole population balance shifts to accelerate gentrification. Public Housing land would be leased to developers for 99 years, locking NYCHA in for the rest of the residents' lives, and creating pressure for the City to take additional measures to "improve property values", which generally means reinforcing racial bias and ultimately driving out poor and working class people. The proposed high-rises will be 80% of units for those who can pay market rate (the top 1%) and set aside only 20% as "affordable" to "low income" people (the 99%), but further, in the real world, cronies of the developers, investors, real estate bankers, politicians and bureaucrats will move to the head of the list for that portion, and crowd out all others. The Bloomberg administration spokespeople from the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), pushing for the plan, say it is necessary to raise funds after devastating Federal budget cuts created a $60,000,000 deficit. But as one audience member pointed out, that whole problem could be solved by eliminating the $75 million that NYCHA donates to the Police Department. Another solution would be to raise tax rates on the super-rich, even slightly, or a 1% transaction tax on Wall Street (small compared to current broker fees), could easily raise the $60,000,000. Bloomberg wants "InFill" to break ground before he leaves office this year, and his Big Real Estate friends not only hunger for profits, but want to obliterate the very example of Public Housing. Gwen Goodwin asked the approximately 200 people in the room how many support "InFill". Less than a half dozen political Clubhouse types and bureaucratic hangers-on raised their hands.
