Bio

STATE SENATE STAFF & VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTER- Anil began his life in public service as a volunteer firefighter at East Fishkill Fire District for over eight years. From there, he took on the role of Community Relations Specialist for Senator Sue Serino where he received insight into legislative affairs in Albany and had the opportunity to become deeply involved in the local area. TOWN COUNCILMAN- Anil's passion for public service, transparency, and accessible representation made an impression on voters who elected him East Fishkill Town Councilman in 2018. During his tenure, Anil helped countless residents with state and local issues while keeping his community informed with vital information. He even launched the #HometownHotspots tour to showcase small businesses and non-profits and to create an open dialogue on becoming better government partners. Dismayed by the media-driven national resentment of law enforcement during the pandemic, Anil also went on to launch the 'Hudson Valley Goes Blue in Support of Law Enforcement' initiative that spurred thousands of Hudson Valley residents to turn their porch lights blue as a sign of support and respect for police officers. COMMUNITY ADVOCATE- Anil proudly stands by his voting and advocacy record. His steadfast support for small businesses, law enforcement, fiscal conservatism, smart development, and most importantly, putting the needs of constituents first, helped improve and shine a light on key local issues. Throughout his tenure, Anil proudly defended small businesses and religious freedoms amidst the state's unconstitutional lockdowns and advocated for children and parents during times of uncertainty in schools. Furthermore, Beephan partnered directly with federal officials to pressure internet service providers for better service for those working or attending school from home. As a community advocate, Anil issued over 30 letters to make the voices of his constituents heard at higher levels of government when no one else would hear their pleas. CANDIDATE FOR NYS ASSEMBLY - 105- With a record that speaks for itself, Anil officially announced his candidacy for the 105th New York State Assembly District on October 27, 2021. If elected to the New York State Assembly, Anil pledges to continue putting his constituents first. Albany is in desperate need for common sense and stability, and Anil is here to deliver. He will keep fighting to rebuild New York into the safe, affordable, and inclusive home it once was. To help return New York to its heyday, Anil will constantly work to make a genuine bipartisan effort to pass sensible legislation while repealing unconstitutional and dangerous bills like Cashless Bail Reform. Anil vows to bring the same level of energy and compassion exhibited during his time as Councilman to Albany. He will continue advocating for the people by bringing home grant funding, acting as a liaison with state agencies, and always consulting with municipalities before voting on legislation.
