“For the last year, I have stood side by side with our neighbors in the West 90’s as we fought against a policy that was wrong for our Upper West Side community, the homeless, and the City. I am proud today has finally come. I applaud Comptroller Liu’s decision to reject the contract between Aguila, Inc and the Department of Homeless Services to operate homeless shelters on West 95th St. If elected to the City Council, I will continue to fight to bring new energy and attention to the issues that impact the lives of all Upper West Siders. I want to commend Aaron Biller and Neighborhood in 90’s for their hard work over the last year to keep this issue at the forefront," stated Ken Biberaj.
Ken has been on the forefront of this issue, urging the Comptroller to reject the contract after uncovering the abusive policies and lack of transparency in this deal.
