A Staten Island resident for over ten years, Dave Narby originally hails from Cortland, NY. First introduced to Libertarianism at age 12 through his politically informed parents, he has been a registered Libertarian for a decade. His father is a business owner and peace activist in Cortland, NY. His mother is a retired NYS public (and international) high school teacher and full time horticulturist in Waterloo, NY.
After graduating from Homer High School in 1985, Dave spent a year in Peru as an exchange student. He graduated from SUNY Brockport with a BA in English in 1994, taking time off to travel the country by motorcycle. The assembly candidate has worked in several trades and professions, among them construction, commercial printing, advertising, business-to-business sales, and entertainment.
Dave lives on the north shore with his wife of 12 years, Jennifer DeSanctis-Narby, who is currently interning at the Staten Island LGBT center while finishing her degree in mental health counseling at Brooklyn college. His political stance is one of a moderately Libertarian Centrist, with an emphasis on honest and open communication, and practical solutions. He is eager to restore Constitutional, common sense, and truly representative government to New York State.
