Op-Ed | On housing, Ron Kim is all talk, no action

Housing affordability is the biggest issue in our state. In Flushing and the surrounding parts of Queens comprising  Assembly District 40, over half of renters are drowning in high rents, yet our current representative, Ron Kim, has done little to alleviate this burden. 

According to a Cornell University study, 56.5% of renters in our district are cost-burdened, spending more than 30% of their income on rent. Even 36% of homeowners face similar struggles. The solution to this housing crisis is clear: we need more supply. Unfortunately, my opponent, Ron Kim, has been in office for a decade and seems to oppose every housing proposal that doesn’t require a revolution to happen first.
