Committee Assignments


Kristen Gonzalez is the youngest woman to ever be elected to the NYS Senate. She is a Queens native, former tech worker, and community organizer who lives in Long Island City. She was raised in Elmhurst by a single mother from Puerto Rico. At age 12, she received a scholarship to a private high school on the Upper East Side. The experience of navigating between a working-class neighborhood in Queens and an upper-class neighborhood in Manhattan led her to fight for social justice and put her on a path to public service. Before being elected to the NYS Senate, Senator Gonzalez worked in the New York City Council, the Obama White House, and Senator Chuck Schumer's office. She has also organized in her community with the Western Queens Community Land Trust, served on her community board, and helped launch a citywide campaign for public internet.
