On August 9, 2017, Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh announced he was running for State Senate District 26 to represent Brooklyn neighborhoods including Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, the Columbia Waterfront, DUMBO, Downtown Brooklyn, Fulton Ferry, Greenpoint, the Navy Yard, Vinegar Hill, and Williamsburg, and the Manhattan neighborhoods of Battery Park City, Chinatown, the East and South Villages, the Financial District, Little Italy, the Lower East Side, SoHo, and Tribeca.

“I am running for State Senate to fight for our communities in Manhattan and Brooklyn and create the progressive, reform-minded Senate that New Yorkers deserve,” said Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh. “For 11 years in the Assembly, I have advocated for my constituents and stood up when government in Albany has failed to function as it should. As a State Senator, I will fight for the things that matter to New Yorkers: strengthening rent laws and preserving affordable housing, increasing access to quality schools, safeguarding the environment, promoting economic and social justice, preventing violence in our communities, and creating a fairer and more accessible political process.”





As State Senator, Brian Kavanagh will fight to strengthen rent laws and keep our neighborhoods affordable for the people who live here, increase access to quality schools, protect the environment and make our communities more resilient, promote economic and social justice, and prevent gun violence.

First elected to the Assembly in 2006, Brian Kavanagh has authored bills to strengthen rent laws and expand tax breaks to freeze rents and keep housing affordable for seniors and people with disabilities. He has chaired public hearings to hold State and City agencies and big business accountable, and he helped lead the successful effort to ban fracking.

One of New York’s leading champions of reform, Brian Kavanagh is an outspoken and effective advocate for changing the culture in Albany, fixing New York’s broken election and campaign finance systems, and standing up to special interests.
