NY-11: Max Rose (D)
Max Rose is the Representative for New York’s 11th Congressional District, representing Staten Island and South Brooklyn. He is the first post-9/11 combat veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to seek and hold office in New York City. A Staten Island resident, he lives in St. George with his wife, Leigh.
Rose is the former chief of staff for Brightpoint Health, a non-profit health care organization. Brightpoint operates a health clinic, food pantries, and substance abuse programs (including a 24-hour recovery center).
Rose is a veteran of the U.S. Army. He served as an active duty officer in Afghanistan from 2012-2013, and earned a Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Combat Infantryman Badge. He continues his service today in the National Guard, and is also Ranger-qualified.
After his military service, Rose worked as director of public engagement and special assistant to the late Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson. There, he helped lead in the development of several nationally recognized programs. One such program, Begin Again, has allowed thousands of New Yorkers the chance to resolve outstanding low-level offenses without fear of arrest.
Rose received a B.A. in History from Wesleyan University and M.S.C. in Philosophy and Public Policy from the London School of Economics, and has spent time studying at Oxford University.
