Meet the real democrat

Lewis Kaminski


 

The son of a public school teacher and a videotape editor, Lewis Kaminski is a Bronx native, attorney, policy analyst, and activist. He is a progressive Democrat who has dedicated his professional life to fighting for our values.

Lewis worked with advance crews on John Kerry’s campaign, moved to Scranton for a month to knock on doors for Barack Obama, and helped run fundraising and field operations for worthwhile causes across New York City, including Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and the Sierra Club. He served for four years as Legislative Counsel to Congressman Eliot Engel, where he drafted laws and advised the Congressman on policy matters ranging from taxes and economics to criminal justice, gun safety, and civil rights. In 2017, he joined the Steering Committee of CD16 Indivisible’s IDC Action Group, a group of local activists dedicated to educating voters about the IDC turncoats in the New York Senate.

A graduate of P.S. 24, George Washington University, and Cornell Law School, he currently works as in-house counsel for a software company in New York City.

Lewis lives in the Spuyten Duyvil neighborhood of the Bronx with his Siberian Husky, Toby.
