Senator Savino and Mayor Adams morning in the
National Columbus Day Parade in October.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams has announced the appointment of Diane Savino, a highly regarded State Senator representing Staten Island and Brooklyn and a leader in the labor movement and the Italian American community.
Senator Savino is an outstanding choice to serve as Senior Advisor to the Mayor. During her legislative career spanning nearly two decades, Senator Savino sponsored more than 160 pieces of legislation covering a variety of essential issues.
Her special concern for those less fortunate from all backgrounds culminated in the passage of her “Domestic Workers Bill of Rights,” the capstone of her legislative career. “It is my proudest moment,” she told an interviewer recently. “The law made a profound change in the lives of people nobody cared about.”
In announcing the appointment, the Mayor said, “We’re thrilled to have Diane join the team as one of my senior advisors. Someone with her extraordinary relationships will be crucial in helping us move forward our agenda in our Aaron Judge year.”
We are proud of Senator Savino’s many accomplishments and record of achievements and commend Mayor Adams on her appointment.
