Alexander Flood

Rensselaer County Legislature, District 4, NY

Working in the New York State Legislature over the last five years, Alex knows what effective and the responsible government looks like. Alex is running to uplift working families and residents in his district with publicly-owned high-speed broadband and energy, rebuilding local infrastructure including expanded child care and support for local small businesses, and preservation of local farmland and open space.

Through his work as a Legislative Analyst and Communications Director in the New York State Senate and Assembly, Alex understands the critical role that our state, county, and local governments play now more than ever amidst a devastating global pandemic, working to effectively communicate key public health information to the public and helping craft policies that help ordinary people and their families weather this crisis.

Alex grew up in the Village of Castleton attending Schodack Central Schools K-12, and as a lifelong resident of the Town of Schodack, he knows how our area is connected by its people, schools, farms, and rural character that defines our sense of community. Alex went on to receive a Bachelor's Degree in History, as well as Public Policy, from the University at Albany, SUNY.
