InfoRobert J. Rodriguez was elected to the New York State Assembly in November 2010. As an Assemblyman, Robert will focus on protecting and creating affordable housing, bringing good jobs into our community and ensuring our children get the quality education they deserve.

Robert was born, raised, and educated in East Harlem. He attended P.S. 112, River East, Isaac Newton, and Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx. He most recently served as Chairman of Community Board 11, representing the neighborhoods of East Harlem.
