Former Coney Councilmember Mark Treyger appointed to city schools position


Former Coney Island Councilmember Mark Treyger, who just recently finished up his last term in legislature on Dec. 31, has been appointed to serve as Director of Intergovernmental Affairs for NYC Schools. 

The two-term legislator, who represented Coney Island, Bensonhurst, Gravesend, and Sea Gate, has been involved in the city’s public school system for years; he served as chair of the City Council’s Education Committee, prior to which he worked as a teacher at New Utrecht High School in Bensonhurst for eight years. His mix of political and in-school experience made him a good fit for the job, Mayor Eric Adams said in a statement to Brooklyn Paper.
