    Last night, Councilman David Greenfield convened a meeting of community leaders from throughout the 44th Council District of Boro Park, Bensonhurst, Midwood and Kensington. After a lengthy discussion of five possible candidates to replace Greenfield on the ballot this September, the group overwhelmingly chose to support Kalman Yeger for City Council. Leaders of the Bobov, Satmar, Ger, Belz, Sephardic, Ashkenaz & Catholic communities have all pledged their support to Kalman Yeger. This morning, the Committee on Vacancies met and voted to designate Kalman Yeger as Councilman Greenfield’s replacement for the Democratic nomination.

    “I’ve known Kalman Yeger for 20 years. He is one of the smartest, hardest-working and most honest people I know. He has worked for Borough Presidents, Senators and Council Members. Kalman understands the struggles of regular people: he rents an apartment, rides the subway, pays yeshiva tuition and works hard for his family. He’s the best candidate to replace me in City Hall and I wholeheartedly endorse him,” said Councilman David Greenfield.

    Kalman Yeger began his career in public service at the age of 19 as a community liaison and assistant to Councilman Lloyd Henry. Yeger currently serves as Counsel and the Executive Director of Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.’s election committee. Since 2010, he has also served as a Senior Advisor and is currently Counsel to New York City Councilman David Greenfield. He has advised countless public officials, including Councilman Alan Maisel, former Council Members Lew Fidler, David Yassky and Michael Nelson, Senator Simcha Felder, Borough Presidents Melinda Katz and Eric Adams, and former Borough President Fernando Ferrer.

    Yeger is a graduate of Touro College and New York Law School, where he was accepted with the distinction of a Dean Scholar. Yeger was listed on the Dean’s List four times during his studies at New York Law School, and was awarded the Public Service Certificate “in recognition of work devoted to the public good while a student.”

    A lifelong resident of Midwood, Kalman has been a member of Community Board 14 for the last 17 years, and has served on the Board of Directors of his local civic association.

    The Met Council on Jewish Poverty, New York’s premier Jewish charity, announced yesterday that it was hiring Greenfield as its next CEO, subject to regulatory approval. Greenfield will lead the $30 million tezedakah with a staff of nearly 200 beginning in January 2018, after completing his term in office.
