Committee Assignments


Assemblymember Jeffrey Dinowitz has dedicated his entire life to supporting and strengthening his community in the Bronx. Born and raised in the borough, Jeffrey was organizing his neighbors to stand up for their rights as tenants before he was even old enough to vote. A graduate of the Bronx High School of Science, Herbert H. Lehman College of the City University of New York (CUNY), and Brooklyn Law School, Jeffrey spent the early years of his career making sure the people of the Bronx, and New York as a whole, got a fair shake. Even before stepping into electoral politics, Jeffrey has been fighting for the health and safety of his community and has pushed back on special interests looking to displace his neighbors. Today, Jeffrey continues to ensure every resident of the 81st AD has a chance to be heard and has used his district office to make an impact by helping thousands of people cut through government red tape with city, state and federal agencies. Before his election to the Assembly, Jeffrey served as an Administrative Law Judge for the State of New York. There he made sure that cases were adjudicated in a fair and just manner, and that all parties involved were able to make their case, not just those able to afford big legal teams. Jeffrey served as a State Committeeman in 1978 and as a District Leader from 1986 to 1994 -- as well as a delegate to the DNC an incredible 8 times. Along with his wife Sylvia Gottlieb, Jeffrey fought for Bronx families in every position he held, and never backed down from a fight. Running against the machine, the voters of the 81st AD chose to send Jeffrey to Albany in a historic vote, ensuring that they would have a real voice in their Assembly. From that moment on, Jeffrey has delivered win after win for his district and has become a champion for working families across the state. Jeffrey Dinowitz came into office as a reformer, striving to make the Democratic Party one that stands up for our values. In Albany, Jeffrey has fought against the inequities in school funding, worked to make our transit system fit the needs of an ever-changing city, and led the charge on addressing climate change. He has authored numerous bills, including the Anti-Human Trafficking Act and the COVID-19 Emergency Eviction and Foreclosure Prevention Act, and is looked to as a leader in the Assembly on protecting tenants' rights and supporting homeowners. Jeffrey has delivered for his district by spearheading the development of a new business district, bringing in funding for new schools, fighting off special interests looking to harm the health and safety of the 81st AD, and countless other victories over the years.
