InfoAssemblymember Scott Stringer was elected from the 67th Assembly District (Upper West Side of Manhattan) in November of 1992 after 10 years of political and community involvement in the neighborhood. He was re-elected overwhelmingly in 1994, 1996 and 1998, 2000, and 2002.

Since his election in 1992, Assemblymember Stringer has been one of the leading advocates in the Assembly on a multitude of issues, including: domestic violence, affordable housing, fiscal fairness, AIDS, abortion rights, and consumer protection and safety. In 1994, his bill to mandate that police officers serve orders of protection for battered women was signed into law � a landmark step in recognizing the rights of domestic violence victims. He also authored the law banning insurance discrimination against domestic violence victims, which was signed by the Governor in 1996. Assemblymember Stringer additionally fought to pass the first anti-stalking legislation in New York State. After many years of hard work, his bill to allow battered women work release when their crimes were committed under abusive duress became law in 2002.

In addition to his legislative efforts, Stringer has released numerous reports on New York City issues. Most recent is his February 2003 analysis of the effects of Pataki�s budget plan on New York City�s middle- and working-class families. Assemblymember Stringer also released a November 2002 report titled �Total Collapse: How NYC Department of Buildings� Failed Policies Contribute to Crumbling Buildings�, a May 2002 report on tax assessor practices and assessment administration in New York City, and an April 2002 report addressing the textbook shortage in New York City's public schools.

Assemblymember Stringer has improved the quality of life in his community through numerous initiatives. He has consistently served as a leader in protecting tenants� rights by organizing rent regulation campaigns and public discussions, as well as speaking at numerous rallies and events over the last decade. He was instrumental in saving the New York Historical Society during State budget negotiations, and he has worked with numerous community groups on local issues. Throughout his tenure in the Assembly, he has been a voice for adequate funding to community projects in New York City.

Before being elected to the Assembly, Assemblymember Stringer spent eight years in the office of Assemblymember Jerry Nadler, where he helped hundreds of constituents and organized scores of tenant associations. He began his tenure with Assemblymember Nadler as a constituent worker and eventually became housing coordinator, then chief of staff. Assemblymember Stringer also held the position of District Leader, during which time he redefined the Leader�s usual role of party functionary into one of grass roots community organizer. He was particularly active in housing issues, most notably as a key spokesperson in the fight to save the Mitchell-Lama program, which creates and provides affordable housing for thousands of middle-income tenants across the state. Thanks to his lead on tax abatement equality for Mitchell Lama residents, the fiscal year 2003 budget extended STAR eligibility to Mitchell Lama tenants.

In 2003, Speaker Silver appointed Assemblymember Stringer the Chair of the Cities Committee. He is the former Chair of the Real Property Taxation Committee, the Oversight, Analysis, and Investigation Committee and the Assembly Task Force on Persons with Disabilities. Assemblymember Stringer is also a member of the Education, Higher Education, Housing, Health and Judiciary committees, as well as the Assembly Task Force on Women�s Issues.

Assemblymember Stringer was born in 1960 and was raised in Washington Heights in New York City. He attended public schools PS 152, JHS 52, and John F. Kennedy High School. He received a B.A. in Government Studies from John Jay College. He is single and resides on the Upper West Side.
