Sheldon Silver

Politician

Sheldon Silver is a lawyer, Democratic politician, and former Speaker of the New York State Assembly, an office he held from 1994 until February of 2015, when he submitted his resignation following his arrest on federal corruption charges. (Silver is fighting the charges and maintains his innocence.)

Silver served as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee before becoming speaker. He was key in reinstating the death penalty in New York in the mid-1990s and was also behind the repeal of the commuter tax. He similarly opposed Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s proposed traffic congestion fees.

A big supporter of the city’s real estate industry while speaker, Silver was criticized in 2013 for packing tax breaks for five major New York luxury developers into legislation regarding housing programs.
