Melissa Sklarz for NY State Assembly

A life-long progressive New Yorker and fierce advocate for equality, Melissa Sklarz is now running to represent New York State’s 30th Assembly District in Queens, which is made up of Woodside and Maspeth, as well as parts of Middle Village, Astoria, and Sunnyside.  


Melissa has dedicated her life to fighting for civil rights protections and justice in New York State, breaking down barriers in critical issues including housing, civil rights, women's reproductive health, and policing. Her pioneering role advocating for New Yorkers started in 1999, after she was elected to serve as a judicial delegate in Manhattan’s 66th Assembly District, becoming the first trans person elected to office in New York State. For the last 11 years, Melissa has represented her neighbors in the Democratic party, as a local party official in helping to select judges.


With our transportation network in crisis, the assault on New Yorkers with the Trump budget and women still lacking proper representation in all sectors, Melissa is confident that she will be able to make sure all voices are heard in Albany and use her many years of experience to bring about real change.


Melissa is hoping to once again be elected by the people of community, this time to serve in the New York State Assembly.
