Silverman campaign website lists his legislative goals: "Larry is running for State Senate as a reformer, to use the same skills he used as a fighter for transit reforms to fight for reform in Albany. We can count on Larry to stand up and speak out on the need for campaign and ethics reform, for nonpartisan redistricting and hold to State agencies accountable for the neglect and mismanagement that wastes our tax dollars."[3]


"Larry a graduate of Stuyvesant High School, State University of New York at New Paltz and New York Law School, where he was an editor of the Law Review, President of the Student Government, President of the Alumni Association and a member of the Board of Trustees."[4]
