Former councilmember Stephen Levin to step into new CEO role at Solar One


Days after the end of his term, former North Brooklyn councilmember Stephen Levin has announced that he’s starting a new gig as Chief Operating Officer at the Manhattan-based sustainability nonprofit Solar One next week.

A former nonprofit employee and state Assembly staffer, Levin was elected to the Council in 2009 and spent 12 years representing District 33 at City Hall, where he chaired the Committee on General Welfare and sat on the committees for Environmental Protection and Land Use. He became a vocal advocate for homeless New Yorkers, standing up for the construction of new shelters in the district and introducing legislation to ease restrictions for homeless youth seeking rental assistance.
