Bio

A lifelong Queens resident, David Weprin has devoted himself to making New York City a better place to live, work and raise a family. David Weprin is running for reelection to the State Assembly to ensure that everyone in the 24th District has an equal opportunity to thrive. Born and raised in Queens by his Cuban-immigrant mother Sylvia, and his Brooklyn born father, Saul, David was brought up in a household that cherished diversity and deeply appreciated the opportunities afforded to immigrants and hardworking families in New York City. David's mother, Sylvia, was a teacher who taught biology, chemistry and Spanish at public high schools in Queens. His father, Saul, was an attorney and World War II Coast Guard veteran, who after becoming involved in issues affecting their community, was elected to the State Assembly. Saul later became Speaker of the State Assembly, where he was an early opponent of the death penalty, vocal on women's reproductive rights and pushed the first LGBT rights bill through the State Assembly. David's parents instilled in him the key values which still define his life to this day- hard work, determination to do what is right, and respect for others. Growing up in a household with a teacher and a community leader, David was inspired to lead a life in public service at an early age, and after graduating from Jamaica High School and SUNY Albany, David received his law degree from Hofstra University.
