MEET ALEX

Alex Bores is a born and raised New Yorker who spent his whole life on the East Side. Alex is running to be your voice in the State Assembly.

 

An engineer with a master’s in computer science, Alex has spent his career improving government technology. In the past year, as COVID ravaged families’ budgets, he implemented software for local governments' relief programs that helped 50,000 families keep their homes warm and their water flowing.

 

He knows what it takes to make government deliver action, not rhetoric.

 

Alex attended our neighborhood’s public schools K-12 at P.S.6, Wagner, and Hunter. He also went to undergrad at Cornell and grad school at Georgia Tech, but the best education he received was on the picket line with his Dad when he was eight years old while his Dad’s union was locked out for fighting for better health care.

 

A community advocate, Alex has organized campaigns that have secured severance pay for fired workers, passed common sense rent regulation, and reformed government procurement. Alex is a Democratic District Leader who helps surface concerns to our East Side elected officials. In that capacity, he recently got the last form of mass transit in NYC to appear on Google Maps (the aerial tram which connects the East Side to Roosevelt Island).

 

Alex’s career has been about improving government policies and technologies from the outside. He is running for Assembly to fix a broken Albany from the inside.
