Amir is a lifelong resident of Queens; growing up in Richmond Hill and now living in Jamaica. He has served as a Community Liaison in the New York City Council for over two years assisting countless constituents with issues varying from foreclosure to street maintenance to public safety issues. He has also worked for just over a year with New York City 311, the call center for the City of New York, where he was part of one of the best customer service teams in the world according to CFI Group’s customer satisfaction survey. Since departing he has been working for the New York State Senate, moving from Community Liaison to Director of Constituent Services, where he is again serving the needs of the public as well as advising the Senator on the pressing policy issues of the day.
In addition to these experiences, Amir has gained considerable field experience assisting on political campaigns including Leroy Comrie for State Senate, Re-Elect Andrew Cuomo, Jeffries for Congress, and Obama 2012. This history of outreach in multiple communities has provided him with a unique perspective of the diverse needs of the City of New York. He recently used these experiences to also become Field Director for Re-Elect Alicia Hyndman for Assembly.
Amir now serves as Vice President of Diversity & Outreach for the Queens County Young Democrats and New York State Young Democrats’ Caucus Development Director, helping organize the numerous caucuses of both organizations. He hopes to use these positions to help diversify programming and grow membership.
