Peter Vallone Sr

Peter Vallone, Sr. is a New Yorker that truly needs no introduction. As the New York Times stated, “there have always been intensely political families in New York City, like the Cuomos, the Wagners and the Vallones.” Peter F. Vallone served as Speaker of the New York City Council from 1986 through 2001 and represented the 22nd Councilmanic District in Queens since 1974. Peter was the Democratic nominee for Governor in 1998 and a candidate for Mayor in 2001. As Speaker, Peter was the City’s top legislator and was responsible for making the City Council an equal partner in New York City government. Peter’s ability to reach all levels of New York City, State and Federal government is unparalleled, and his vast experience results in the achievement of short and long term goals for C&V clients.

Through his leadership as Speaker, the Board of Estimate was eliminated, thereby bringing the budget, land use and zoning under City Council purview. Peter’s “Safe Streets — Safe City” rebuilt the police force from 26,000 to 41,000 officers and resulted in the lowest crime rates since the 1960’s. Peter is a graduate of Fordham University and Fordham Law School, where he received the George W. Bacon Award for Excellence. Peter lectured at Baruch School of Public Affairs and is the author of “Learning to Govern: My Life in New York Politics, From Hell Gate to City Hall” as well as “God Came Home with Me.”
