Eli Sabin

New Haven City Council, Ward 7, CT

Eli is a lifelong New Havener and community advocate who’s running for a second term on the Board of Alders, New Haven’s city council. The youngest person ever elected to the Board of Alders, Eli (now 21) is focused on building a New Haven where every resident has an affordable place to live, feels safe in every neighborhood, and has access to the good schools and job opportunities they need to support their families.

In his next term on the Board of Alders, Eli will continue the work he’s already done to create more affordable housing, fight gun violence, build safe streets for people who walk and bike, and invest in education and job training programs for New Haven’s youth. As an alder and as the Director of the Connecticut state legislature’s Progressive Caucus, Eli is committed to building and leading local and regional coalitions around progressive priorities including affordable housing reform, educational equity, and tax fairness.
