InfoA New York City native, Stavisky began his career in public service in city government. Among other posts, he served as deputy to the President of the city Council and as Acting President of the council while serving on the Board of Estimate. Between 1972 and 1977, he was appointed Commissioner on the State Charter Revision Commission for New York City, the panel that drafted the City�s new constitution.

Dr. Stavisky was elected to the New York State Assembly in 1965, where he served until his election to the New York State Senate in 1983. A university professor by background, with more than 30 years of experience in teaching and administration, Stavisky quickly became known as one of the State�s leading experts and advocates on educational issues. While in the Assembly, he chaired the Education Committee for more than eight years.

Stavisky held three earned degrees: a bachelor of Science from CCNY, and a Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy from the Graduate Faculty of Political Science of Columbia University.

Husband of Toby Ann Stavisky.
