Zellnor Myrie represents District 20 in the New York State Senate, which includes the neighborhoods of East Flatbush, Brownsville, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Sunset Park, Park Slope , South Slope and Gowanus. During his first legislative session, Senator Myrie served in leadership roles on several major legislative victories. Having grown up in a rent-stabilized apartment at the epicenter of the affordable housing crisis, Senator Myrie was honored to co-lead the Senate’s Housing Reform Working Group, which produced New York’s strongest affordable housing and tenant protection laws in generations. During the legislature’s budget negotiations, Myrie also served on the Senate’s Criminal Justice Reform Working Group, resulting in sweeping reforms to cash bail, discovery, and speedy trial laws. As Chair of the Elections Committee, Senator Myrie led hearings on Public Financing of Elections and Automatic Voter Registration, and presided over historic election reforms including Early Voting, closing the LLC loophole, and many other crucial reforms to protect and expand our democracy.
