Dan Quart serves as the Assemblymember for the seventy-third district of New York, an area which encompasses the Upper East Side, Midtown East, Turtle Bay and Sutton Place. Since being elected in 2011, Dan has been a staunch advocate for criminal justice reform and fighting for working families.
Dan grew up in Washington Heights, Manhattan. His dad, Irving, was a public school teacher for 41 years and his mother, Madeline, was a long-time teacher and now guidance counsellor at a Manhattan public school. Irving and Madeline instilled the value of service to others and giving back to the community in Dan from a young age.
After graduating from SUNY Binghamton and then St. John's School of Law, Dan dedicated his time to pro-bono advocacy.
