David Storobin (born 1979) is a New York Attorney and a former New York State Senator who represented District 27 in the New York State Senate, which includes the neighborhoods of Borough Park, Midwood, Bensonhurst, Brighton Beach, Kensington, Bergen Beach, Mill Basin, Gravesend, Sheepshead Bay, and Manhattan Beach, among others.

Biography[edit]

Storobin was born to Jewish parents in 1979. He was raised by a single mother after his parents divorced when he was 3 years old. He graduated from Rutgers University School of Law and is a practicing attorney, specializing in criminal defense and family law. He has run his own law firm since 2004, now known as The Storobin Law Firm PLLC. In 2004, he founded Global Politician, an e-zine. Material posted there later caused a bitter row between Storobin and his political opponent Lewis Fidler.[1]

In the Senate race, Storobin promoted education reform and legislation to help small businesses. He defeated the incumbent City Councilman Fidler in a close race which came down to counting absentee ballots.[citation needed]

Storobin sponsored the repeal of the Blaine Amendment to help facilitate the introduction of school vouchers for religious schools. He sponsored bills to reduce bureaucracy and taxes on small businesses.[citation needed]

After his old district ceased to exist post-redistricting, Storobin ran in the nearby district which had somewhat different demographics in the November 2012 general election against former Democratic Councilman Simcha Felder in a newly created district. Storobin faced a 4:1 party registration disadvantage, leaving him an underdog.[2] On November 5, 2013, he ran for the New York City Council's 48th District, losing to Democrat Chaim Deutsch.
