The NY Times reports that Mayor de Blasio is being pressured by progressive

<http://met.server278.com/sites/all/modules/civicrm/extern/url.php?u=23393&qid=230940>The 

things the mayor ran on... need to happen,"

said the Met Council on Housing's Jaron Benjamin.

The Real Affordability for All coalition - coodinated by the Met Council on
Housing - sounded off in a NY Daily News article

relationships
<http://met.server278.com/sites/all/modules/civicrm/extern/url.php?u=23395&qid=230940> 
between
labor unions and affordable housing activists.
