InfoNY State Assemblyman, 1985-1996; NY State Senator, 1996-2000, City Councilman since 2002.

In 2001, New York City Councilman Larry B. Seabrook made history as the first African American to hold office in three legislative branches: New York State Assembly (first minority candidate to be elected from the 83rd Assembly District), New York State Senate, and in his current position as a member of the New York City Council.

Seabrook continues to build on his pro-taxpayer, community service, public safety, education, job training, economic development, workplace equality, youth services, increased senior benefits record.

An outspoken advocate for equal opportunity during his tenure with the New York State Assembly, Seabrook launched an investigation into hiring practices by employment agencies that resulted in significant legislation barring employment discrimination and increasing penalties for civil rights violations. He created the Drug Trader Arrests and Conviction Program (DTAC) that led to over a thousand drug-related arrests and liberated Bronx neighborhoods from the scourge of drugs and drug-related crimes and violence. This model program won strong bi-partisan support and recognition and earned editorial praise from the Daily News, which declared, "If ever there was a gold medal in the war against drugs, Assemblyman Larry Seabrook should be considered."

As a New York State Senator, Seabrook served on a number of committees: Housing; Construction and Community Development; Cities; Veterans and Military Affairs; Civil Service and Pension; Codes; Social Services; and Higher Education. He was the Ranking Minority Member of the Judiciary Committee (1988-89) and the Assistant Minority Whip for the Democratic Conference.

Seabrook is currently an Adjunct Professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and holds a B.A. Degree in History and Urban Studies from John Jay College, an M.A. Degree in Political Science and International Affairs from Long Island University and a J.D. Degree from CUNY Law School in Queens. He was a recipient of a graduate certificate from the United Nations, the John Jay College Distinguished Service Award and the President Medal.

Seabrook resides in Co-Op City in the Northeast Bronx.
