Max Rose is a U.S. Army veteran, a Bronze Star recipient, a Purple Heart recipient, and candidate for New York’s 11th Congressional district. Notably, he is the first post-9/11 combat veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to seek office in New York City. After his serving in Afghanistan, he worked as Director of Public Engagement and Special Assistant to the late Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson. As Director, Max helped develop several nationally recognized programs to restore trust between the criminal justice system and the community it serves.
A large part of his life has been dedicated to building relationships. By taking a no corporate PAC pledge, Max makes it clear that he is committed to his district and not outside interests. Once he gets to Washington, Max plans on fighting to reform the broken campaign finance system so it works for all Americans, not just the richest ones.
