Mr. Max Rose

An army veteran and former non-profit healthcare executive, Congressman Max Rose proudly serves New York’s 11th Congressional District, representing Staten Island and South Brooklyn. Upon being sworn in, Max pledged to fight for Staten Island and South Brooklyn and focus on the transportation needs of his district, fighting the opioid epidemic, and rooting out corruption in Washington. Max currently serves on the House Committee on Homeland Security and the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. Serving in Afghanistan, and now as a veteran himself, Max has seen firsthand how our service members and veterans struggle when they return home. Max served as an active duty officer in Afghanistan from 2012-2013 and earned a Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and Combat Infantry Badge. He is Ranger-qualified and continues to serve in the National Guard and is the first post-9/11 combat veteran to represent New York City. Prior to being elected to Congress, Max was the Chief of Staff for Brightpoint Health, a non-profit healthcare organization that has effectively provided care and responded to the needs of underserved New Yorkers for more than 25 years. Max received a B.A. in history from Wesleyan University and M.S.C. in Philosophy and Public Policy from the London School of Economics.
