Biography: Ruben Diaz Jr. was 23 when he was elected to the Assembly to represent the Bronx in 1997 — making him the youngest person elected to the body since Theodore Roosevelt. Diaz served on the Assembly’s education committee and sponsored bills on transparency and the environment. He then helped launch a group of progressive Democrats called the Rainbow Rebels, who challenged the power structure in the Bronx and supported their own slate of candidates. On February 18, 2009, President Barack Obama appointed Diaz to serve as director of the White House Office of Urban Affairs. In 2009, Diaz ran and won in a special election for Bronx Borough President, easily defeating his Republican opponent. Diaz abandoned a bid for public advocate in 2013 to run for reelection.
