Councilman Mark Treyger – Legislator Of The Year

Mark Treyger, one of two children, was born in Brooklyn, NY on April 15, 1982, making him the first in his family to be born in the United States. His parents, Naum and Tatyana, and his sister, Elina, were born in Mogilev-Podolskiy, Ukraine. He grew up and was raised in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.

He attended and graduated from P.S. 226, Edward R. Murrow High School, and Brooklyn College (B.A. in Political Science and M.A. in Social Studies Education). Mark went on to earn a second Masters Degree from Brooklyn College in School Leadership in 2012. Treyger taught history at New Utrecht High School. He also worked part-time as Assistant to NYS Assemblyman Bill Colton.

In 2013, Mark Treyger was elected to New York City Council with overwhelming support from voters in 47 District. He became a Chairman of Recovery and Resiliency Committee making it one of the most influential and important committees. For the first time in NYC history, his City Council Committee hosted a public hearing about Sandy recovery right in a heart of Coney Island community.

Mark Treyger – together with his colleagues in government - was instrumental in bringing enormous city, state and federal funds (more than $900 mln.) to the Coney Island Hospital devastated by SuperStorm Sandy.

Mark is one of the most active, effective, hard working, outspoken and respected Council Members. Treyger was elected by his colleagues to the important position of Co-Chairman of Brooklyn delegation in NYC Council.
