Today, we sent a letter to New York Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal – sponsor of recent anti-home sharing legislation – that asks for her to voluntarily release all communications with relevant hotel lobby players.
They include New York Hotel and Motel Trades Council (HTC) President Peter Ward or any other representatives of HTC; Neil Kwatra, Austin Shafran, and any other employees of Metropolitan Public Strategies; any member of the Hotel Association of New York; and any member of the American Hotel & Lodging Association.
