InfoA common-sense progressive, Micah Z. Kellner was first elected to represent the people of New York State’s 65th Assembly District on June 5, 2007. A grass-roots community activist with an accomplished record in public service, Micah won nearly 65% of the vote in a Special Election to replace Alexander “Pete” Grannis, who vacated the seat after being named Commissioner of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation by Governor Eliot Spitzer.

Prior to his election to the Assembly, Micah served as an aide to several leading elected officials, including U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney and New York City Comptroller William C. Thompson, Jr. On the staff of Representative Maloney, he worked on issues involving affordable housing and tenants’ rights. Micah served both Maloney and Thompson as a community liaison to Manhattan’s East Side and Roosevelt Island, and became a dedicated activist on issues affecting the community and all New Yorkers. He worked side by side with leaders and members of neighborhood and citywide civic associations such as the East 79th Street Neighborhood Association, the East 86th Street Merchants and Residents Association, the Carl Schurz Park Association, the Disabilities Network of New York City, the Disabled Riders Coalition, and the Roosevelt Island Residents Association.

As an infant, Micah was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and underwent numerous operations and years of physical therapy. While earning his bachelor’s degree at New York University, he became politically active on behalf of the disabilities community, and has since become a powerful voice for the rights of persons with disabilities in the Empire State.

Micah Z. Kellner is a strong champion for affordable housing, fairer government funding formulas for New York City’s public schools, mass transit and a cleaner environment, reproductive freedom and stem cell research, marriage equality for same-sex couples, and the rights of persons with disabilities.
