Lower East Side Assemblyman Sheldon Silver has a lot on his plate these days.  This week, Speaker Silver is in the middle of intensive budget negotiations with Governor Andrew Cuomo and legislative colleagues. But nevertheless, he managed to make it down from Albany last night for a big event in Chinatown.

Silver presented awards to several honorees, including Oakland Mayor Jean Quan, at Asian Americans for Equality’s Lunar New Year celebration, at the Jing Fong restaurant on Elizabeth Street (more on the event later).

Silver did not talk much about the budget negotiations. But, in the presence of many of the neighborhood’s affordable housing activists, he repeated the Assembly’s commitment to renewing and extending rent protection laws.

  1. I live in a rent-stabilized apartment in the Alphabets and I hope the State continues this. I voted for Cuomo based on the fact I thought he would continue to support these types of housing, which is essential to NYC! Thanks Mr. Silver for your support!
