Andrew D. Hevesi (born November 19, 1973) is a Democratic member of the New York State Assembly representing the 28th Assembly District, which includes Forest Hills, Rego Park, Richmond Hill, Glendale, Kew Gardens, Ridgewood, and Middle Village.
Hevesi is the son of former New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi, and the brother of former New York State Senator Daniel Hevesi.
Andrew Hevesi held several public service positions before being elected to the New York State Assembly, including a period in both the Queens District Attorney's office and as Director of Community Affairs for Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum. Hevesi also served as Chief of Staff for current New York State Senate President Pro Tempore Jeff Klein.
Hevesi has a BA degree in political science from Queens College. He and his wife Rachel, along with their daughter, reside in Forest Hills, New York.
On May 10, 2005 Hevesi won a special election to fill a seat left vacant by the resignation of former Assemblyman Michael Cohen, serving for the remainder of his term. He was re-elected in November 2006 and has been re-elected in all subsequent elections.
From June 2011 to February 2015 Assemblyman Hevesi served as Chairman of the Committee on Oversight, Analysis, and Investigation, a position previously held by both New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer and New York State Senate President Pro Tempore Jeff Klein. As Chair, Assemblyman Hevesi held hearings on numerous topics including healthcare, human trafficking, and technology infrastructure in New York State.
Hevesi has secured a total of $6 million for freight locomotive engine upgrades in the 2013–2014 and 2014–2015 New York State Budgets. The initiative was prompted by a constituency in his district that suffered from constant locomotive idling and emissions from outdated locomotive engines.
In February 2015 Assemblyman Hevesi was appointed Chairman of the Committee on Social Services. He continues to serve as a member of the committees on Health, Energy, Insurance, and Labor.May 2005 special election, NYS Assembly, 28th AD
