Assemblymember Carl E. Heastie 83rd Assembly District
Biography

Carl E. Heastie, Assemblyman for the 83rd A.D. in the Bronx, is one of the youngest African-American New York State legislators. Assemblyman Heastie, who was elected in 2000, has been called one of the most active Assembly members by his colleagues.
He has secured funds for his district in the areas of housing, education, after school programming, health and human services, job readiness and computer training. Carl E. Heastie is the Co-Chairman of the Legislative Taskforce on Demographic Research and Reapportionment and Chairman of the Labor Sub-Committee on Emerging Workforce.

Since taking office, Assemblyman Heastie has become one of the lead negotiators for the construction of new schools in his district. To add to his list of accomplishments, Assemblyman Heastie was the author of a law that prohibited the sale of Nico-water to children under 18 years old. Nico-water is Nicotine laced water. This product was designed to be a supplement to help people quit smoking but was not covered under existing law or regulations to sufficiently protect young children.

Prior to taking office, Assemblyman Heastie was employed as a budget analyst in the New York City comptroller’s office where he researched, prepared and authored reports on the City’s spending patterns. This experience in budget analysis is one of the strongest skills Assemblyman Heastie brings to the New York State Legislature.

Assemblyman Heastie is second to none when it comes to his ability to evaluate numbers. This skill was learned at the State University of New York at Stony Brook where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics.
Assemblyman Heastie earned his MBA in Finance from the Bernard M. Baruch College (CUNY) in May of 2007. Even as a child growing up in the New York City public school system, he has always had a love for math.

Assemblyman Heastie continues his community involvement as a member of the Williamsbridge Branch NAACP and the National Council of Negro Women. His involvement is not just limited to memberships, though. On any given weekend, you will find him making his rounds to support block parties and street fairs, giving monetary donations and helping out wherever he can.
Assemblyman Heastie will continue to push his agenda; addressing education, economic development and furthering the interests of the elderly.

Dominic Carter "Inside City Hall" Host and Senior Political Reporter Veteran interviewed on the Arlene McLaren Show on Friday, February 29, 2008


The Arlene McLaren Show appears every Friday 1460 AM and live online at http://www.wvox.com/ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm.

About: Dominic Carter "Inside City Hall" Host and Senior Political Reporter Veteran newsman Dominic Carter has been described as the best political reporter working in New York television today. A fixture at NY1 since the newschannel launched in 1992, Carter in 2007 released a book on his life, titled No Momma's Boy, in which he chronicles his triumphant struggle to overcome his mother's mental illness while growing up in a Bronx housing project.

As the host of NY1's nightly political show, "Inside City Hall," Carter has handled some of the station's most challenging assignments and has interviewed every major political player in the state, as well as many national and international leaders.

In 2006 he received widespread acclaim for his role as the moderator of series of state-wide debates for governor, U.S. Senator and state attorney general. During the first debate with Senator Hillary Clinton, he made international headlines when Clinton said for the first time that she was thinking about running for president.

His numerous exclusive interviews include former President Bill Clinton, the late John Cardinal O'Conner and the parents of police-brutality victim Amadou Diallo. As a radio reporter he conducted an exclusive interview with Nelson Mandela during Mandela’s historic visit to the United States – an interview he conducted as thousands of journalists from around the country pursued the South African president.

The NY1 stalwart has also reported extensively from abroad. In 1993 he was the only television journalist in Japan with then-Mayor David Dinkins at the time of the first World Trade Center terrorist bombing, and his interview with the mayor made headlines back in New York. He twice traveled to Israel to cover visits to the region by then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani; he has reported on the famine from Somalia; and he has spent time in the Persian Gulf.

No Mamma's Boy, his self-published memoir, was released in May 2007 to critical acclaim. Newsday said, "No TV anchor has ever produced a memoir as grippingly honest as this." The book is available at Barnes and Noble stores and online at barnesandnoble.com.

Dominic Carter was featured author at the 2008 I Love to Read Book Fair (http://Ilovetoreadbookfair.blogspot.com)
