Mike Balsamo is a seasoned writer, reporter, and politico. Born and raised in Bayside, Queens, Mike is a true New Yorker. After moving to Port Jefferson, Long Island, Mike attended Comsewogue HS, where he served as editor-in-chief of “The Warrior” – both are known best for Mike’s investigative report unveiling a recycling scandal, plaguing the school district. It was then that Mike found his true passion for journalism. Since then, Mike’s work has been featured in multiple regional newspapers and award-winning political blogs. Mike, who returned to Queens to attend St. John’s University, currently holds a position as a Partner at a New York City Political Communications Firm, bringing a unique perspective with experience in both small community and large government not-for-profit organizations. Mike really understands just how to cut through the bureaucratic red tape. Working on several political campaigns for local and state offices, Mike has developed strong relationships with the leaders of New York City’s government and continues to work closely with a variety of state and city agencies, elected officials, and community organizations.
Always happy to chat about local issues and of course, politics.
