Progressive New York City Member seeks Legislative Director to oversee and support the Member’s legislative priorities. Responsibilities include providing the Member with vote recommendations, setting legislative priorities and managing staff to achieve them, planning dynamic events to raise awareness of the Member’s actions, writing talking points, liaising with community leaders, and spearheading legislative initiatives within their own portfolio. Ideal candidates will have a strong understanding of housing and immigration policy, an advanced degree, and 3-5 years of legislative experience on Capitol Hill. Strong written and verbal skills are essential as is the ability to work collaboratively in a fast-paced, dynamic environment. This is not an entry-level position and New York City ties are a plus.
