Eva Moskowitz

Eva Moskowitz (born March 4, 1964) is a former City Council member in New York City. She graduated from Stuyvesant High School [cite web |url=http://gothamist.com/2005/07/26/eva_moskowitz_city_council_member.php |title=Eva Moskowitz, City Council Member |date=2005-07-26 |publisher=Gothamist |first=Jen |last=Chung |accessdate=2007-11-02] and the University of Pennsylvania and received a Ph.D. in history from Johns Hopkins University. She married Eric Grannis, a classmate at Stuyvesant, and they have three children: Culver, Dillon, and Hannah. In 1999, she was elected as council member for the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Since 2002 she has served as Chairwoman of the Council Education Committee. She gained wide coverage for her positions on education, some of which antagonized the teachers' unions. She has held several hearings on issues relating to the teachers' contract. She is known as an aggressive advocate for educational issues and has ruffled the feathers of both the teacher's union and the New York City Department of Education.

In 2005, Moskowitz entered the race for Manhattan Borough President to succeed C. Virginia Fields, emphasizing educational and environmental issues. She raised the most money of any Democratic candidate, but finished second to Scott Stringer. The teacher's union campaigned heavily for Stringer and against Moskowitz, based on Moskowitz' hearings about the teachers' contract and on other education issues.

Moskowitz gave up her Council seat to make the run for borough president. She has announced that she will become executive director of a charter school in Harlem. In addition she announced plans to seek political office in the future, hinting that she may run for Mayor of New York.
