Senator Gianaris Re-Appointed Senate Deputy Majority Leader

December 16, 2020

ALBANY – Greek-American Senator Michael Gianaris was re-appointed as State Senate Deputy Majority Leader by Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins. This will mark the Queens’ legislator’s second term as #2 ranking Senator in New York and the highest-ranking Senate member from New York City. He was also reappointed as Chair of the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee. 

“I am honored to continue serving in this role so we can continue the historic progress we’ve already enacted,” said Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris. “Working alongside Leader Stewart-Cousins and our unprecedented Democratic Majority, we will deliver policy solutions that ensure opportunity for everyone in our state.”

Senator Gianaris was first chosen as Deputy Majority Leader following the 2018 elections, when the 40-person conference first took the majority. This year, the Senate Democratic Majority is expanding to 43 members, a testament to Senator Gianaris’ efforts leading the Senate Democrats’ campaign arm by electing a super-majority and the largest majority of any party in the history of the New York State Senate.

Senator Gianaris serves as the highest-ranking member of the state Senate representing New York City and the second-highest ranking member of the chamber. Senator Gianaris has played a critical role in crafting policy in the Senate leadership, including landmark tenant protections, expanding access to voting rights, and funding improved public transit. He will continue managing the legislative agenda on the floor of the Senate.
