Tim Roberts joins us from the sharp-elbowed world of New York City politics. He was the Chief of Staff for Senator Squadron, and before him Councilmembers Van Bramer and Yassky. Tim has represented large swaths of the City – from Lower Manhattan to Western Queens to Brownstone Brooklyn. He’s very confused about whether to root for the Yankees or the Mets, but that’s okay, he’s more of a US Open guy anyway.
Additionally, Tim was an integral part of two city-wide campaigns and runoffs, Yassky for Comptroller and Squadron for Public Advocate. Prior to working in government, Tim learned his organizing chops from two non-profits: The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and People For the American Way.
When not geeking-out on politics and policy, you may find Tim running in Central Park with his Labrador Retriever, Maggie, and his new husband, Chris.
