Housing Council for Aborn

Manhattan district attorney candidate Richard Aborn picked up the endorsement of the Metropolitan Council on Housing, an umbrella organization working on affordable housing issues.

“Richard Aborn has the vision and experience to tackle violent crime while at the same time standing up against abusive landlords who resort to criminal measures,” the group’s president, Scott Sommer said.

The endorsement isn’t new ground for Aborn, but fits neatly into his push for a base of support among minorities and the most socially liberal whites. Housing Council for Aborn
