From the Morning Memo:

A day after affordable housing advocates protested outside of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Albany office, a tenant-rights group plans to push Senate Majority Leader John Flanangan on the issue as well.

Housing advocates and demonstrators plan to demonstrate at Flanagan’s Long Island office later today and call for stronger rent-law protections as regulations are due to expire June 15.

The demonstrators will plan to “move in” to the office if they aren’t assured rent control regulations will be protected, according to one of the event’s organizers.

At the same time, the Alliance For Tenant Power plans to release a letter knocking Flanangan (and really the Senate GOP at large) for the power wielded by developers like Glenwood Management, which has played a role in the indictment of former Majority Leader Dean Skelos.

“Why do wealthy real estate developers from Manhattan matter more to you than the hard-working tenants of Long Island? We know why: it’s because of the more than $1 million in campaign contributions that the corrupt Glenwood Management real-estate firm has given to the Senate Republicans,” the group wrote in the letter. “And it’s clear that the $41,500 Glenwood has donated to you is why you are refusing to stand up for stronger rent laws.”

No one from Glenwood Management has been charged in the corruption scandal and was not named specifically in either the criminal complaint or the in the indictment of Skelos or his son, Adam Skelos.

But it is clear Glenwood has played a role in both the cases of Skelos and former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. A principle at the firm, Leonard Litwin, a prolific donor to state candidates, including Cuomo.

The elder Skelos is accused of using his official position to aid Adam Skelos’s business interests, as well as helping securing no-show jobs for his son.

State Police on Wednesday reported 55 people — including several state lawmakers and city Council members — were arrested protesting outside of the governor’s office.

Cuomo on Wednesday, meanwhile, reiterated his support for strengthening rent control in the city and the surrounding areas.

“We’re losing too many affordable housing units by the current rent regulations,” Cuomo told reporters following an event pushing for an extension of the state’s property tax cap. “We lose about 10,000 units per year.”

Cuomo says he wants to make changes to vacancy decontrol, but is doubtful an outright repeal as backed by Assembly Democrats will occur.
