The Jackson Institute for Global Affairs presents:
David Buchwald, New York State Assembly: “Career Conversation with Assemblyman David Buchwald.”
David Buchwald was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 6, 2012, and has quickly established himself as a strong advocate for job growth, lowering taxes, and fighting for our values in Westchester. He has achieved notable increases in state aid to local school districts, helping both students and property taxpayers, and he has pushed, with significant success, for the repeal of the 18-a utility tax that especially burdens small businesses and seniors.
Prior to joining the State Assembly, David was a member of the White Plains Common Council where he represented 57,000 residents of the City of White Plains. He also served as Chairman of the White Plains Traffic Commission where he worked to promote efficient traffic rules, pedestrian safety, bicycle access and sensible on-street parking rules.
He graduated from Yale University in 2000 with a BS in Physics and Harvard in 2007 with an MPP and a JD.Career
