Ian Riley-Associate

Ian Riley has been at TLM Associates since 2008. During that period he has developed a comprehensive understanding of the NYC Council. Ian utilizes this expertise to help clients devise and execute strategies to achieve their budgetary and policy objectives. Ian possesses a thorough understanding of the City Council’s legislative, policy, and budgetary processes, as well as knowledge about the political dynamics of the NYC Council.

Ian’s responsibilities include monitoring all city council legislation, hearings, budget deadlines, and press events, creating and implementing strategic plans on behalf of TLM’s clients, advancing TLM clients’ budget requests and legislative/policy agenda, and managing clients’ compliance with all NYC Clerk lobbying regulations.

Ian’s educational background in history provides him with the capability and perspective to discern, and develop strategies that capitalize upon the deeper long term trends in City politics that are not readily apparent to most people. This insight allowed Ian to anticipate, and thus to prepare for, the progressive caucus’ ascension to the leadership of the NYC Council by developing relationships with key progressive candidates who are now influential Council Members with important committee chairmanships.

Before joining TLM Associates, Ian was in Graduate School at Queens College studing history. Prior to Graduate school, Ian was an intern in the Westchester County Executive’s office while he was completing his undergraduate studies at SUNY Purchase.
