This site is a light-hearted look at Phil Steck, mainly related to his political activities. He apparently does not like this website, but you can judge that for yourself by reading his letters on my blog post about this: Phil Steck letters.
On that funny side, you have to wonder about the local news media publishing this picture of Phil (below):
Mr. Steck won the Democratic primary for New York State Assembly on September 13, 2012. We congratulate him on his victory. At this writing he will have a tough race in the general election against Jennifer Whalen. She will be on the Republican and Independence party lines.
If you are looking for him as an attorney, Mr. Steck works at Cooper Erving & Savage LLP.
In the 2008 primary for Congress he came in third or so in a Democratic primary, behind Paul Tonko (who went on to win the seat) and Tracey Brooks.
The seat was held by Mike McNulty for 20 years, and by Sam Stratton for a long time before that.
As an Albany County legislator, Steck was known for his opposition to the rights of lawful gun owners.
This site was his campaign website for the congressional race.
There was quite a hubbub when Brooks’ campaign registered some domain names that included Phil Steck’s name in them, though she never seemed to use them.
In a wonderful piece of irony (if that’s the right term), both of them allowed their domain names to expire.
The domain names were acquired at an auction by another former candidate for Congress in Albany.
That would be me: Albany Lawyer Warren Redlich.
