Daniel Squadron is a lifelong New Yorker who lives with his wife, Liz, and their son in Brooklyn. Together, they understand the challenges facing families in our city today.
First elected to the State Senate in November 2008 at the age of 28, Daniel unseated a 30-year incumbent in a grassroots campaign for change, and has gotten results as a progressive reformer.
Daniel has a proven track record of getting results for everyday New Yorkers -- fighting corruption in Albany, writing landmark new gun laws, and advocating for affordable housing, parks, and public transportation. He has a plan to make the Public Advocate's office more effective for children, seniors, and regular families who need a voice in City Hall.
