Another political episode in my comic strip, Average Man. This strip is based on true stories of campaigning over the years in New York. I won't do a political strip every week, but since this Thursday is Primary Day in New York State, I thought another political strip was appropriate.
As a believer in the power of government, I have worked to improve it from both the inside and the outside. As senior advisor to current Council Member David Yassky for nearly five years, I worked on a wide range of local issues in the 33rd District, as well as many citywide initiatives at City Hall—guiding winning coalitions on affordable housing, education, environment and government reform policy. Today I serve as the Environment Chair of Community Board 1, and as a consultant to some of ’s largest non-profit advocacy groups—fighting for better working conditions for blue-collar workers, clean up of the country’s largest terrestrial oil spill in Brooklyn, and against irresponsible development throughout the City.
