An URGENT MESSAGE To ALL Cooperative Board Presidents, Officers,
Directors and Shareholders:

Your County Legislators are pushing legislation that will be the
END of Cooperative Governance, Stewardship and Fiduciary Responsibility
as you know it.

It will be the END of Cooperative Living as you know it.

The Board of Legislators, while deceptively calling this proposed legislation “Fairness in Cooperative Home Ownership”, seeks to change the fundamental nature of Cooperative Ownership
in two key ways:

1. It LIMITS Co-op Board action on applications to 45 days;

2. It FORCES the Co-op Board to detail the reasons for a rejection of an applicant,
otherwise known as “Mandatory Disclosure”.

We urge you to fill-out the form below completely and hit SEND.
Your comments will then be sent directly to your
Westchester Legislators
.
We have also provided the email addresses, phone numbers AND postal mailing address for your individual legislator at the bottom of this page.

We also urge you to contact your local municipal leader to express your displeasure at this legislation.
Please click HERE for a list of local Mayors and Supervisors of municipalities in Westchester County with a high concentration of Co-ops. If you don’t see your municipality listed, please contact the Cooperative and Condominium Advisory Council at (914) 273-0730 and we will help you get the right contact info.

Yours in Solidarity,
Diana Virrill, Chairperson, Cooperative & Condominium Council of Westchester (CCAC)
Albert A. Annunziata, Executive Director, CCAC
