A Powerful Partnership – People and Political Will

April, 1986

Resident Anne-Marie Dennis moved up in leadership of the Northgate-Greenfield Tenants’ Association to become Vice President and eventually President.  It was on Mayor Sanders’ agenda to keep Northgate affordable, and in 1986 Dennis, with help from CEDO, crafted a survey to understand the demographics of the people of Northgate to see if they wanted to act on preserving Northgate as affordable housing.  Dennis first met with Bernie Sanders on behalf of the NGTA in a Northgate kitchen. The City and Mayor continued to provide critical support and resources after the survey results were in and a Save Northgate effort started.
