Carl Heastie’s net worth

Carl Edward Heastie was born on September 25, 1967 (age 55 years) in New York City, United States. He is the son of the Late Helene Heastie. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from Stony Brook University in Suffolk County, New York, and an M.B.A. in Finance from Baruch College in New York City.


Carl Heastie worked as a budget analyst for the New York City Comptroller prior to his election to the Assembly. Heastie has also worked as an adjunct professor at Monroe College. He was first elected to the New York State Assembly in 2000 and represents the 83rd District, which covers the Williamsbridge, Wakefield, Edenwald, Eastchester, and Baychester sections of the Northeast Bronx.

Heastie became one of the lead negotiators for the construction of a new K-8 school in his district since joining the Assembly. He has also sponsored legislation to require mandatory reporting of alleged child abuse of students in New York City. He became Chair of the Assembly Labor Committee in 2013. He became Chair of the Bronx Democratic Party in 2008, a post that he relinquished after becoming Assembly Speaker in 2015.

In January 2015, Heastie’s Assembly colleagues considered him a frontrunner to be elected Speaker, following the arrest of Sheldon Silver on federal corruption charges led by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. On February 2, Assembly Democrats voted unanimously for Heastie to become the new Speaker. The full Assembly elected him Speaker of the Assembly the next day.

Heastie is the first African-American to serve in the position. One of his first New York City appearances after becoming speaker was at Al Sharpton’s rally in Harlem, where he told the crowd, “This is a tremendous opportunity for our community, for the first time, to have one of us sit at the table,” and added, “All of you are going to be sitting at that table with me for the first time”.

In April 2015, it was reported that contrary to a judge’s instructions, Heastie had neglected to sell a home that his mother, Helene Heastie, according to prosecutors bought with money embezzled from a nonprofit charity. After his mother’s death, Heastie ceased attempts to sell the home, having been advised by his lawyer that he was no longer obligated to do so, and later sold it for a profit of $200,000.

An independent forfeiture law expert consulted by the New York Times agreed, explaining that the judge’s order was “probably legally unenforceable without a formal forfeiture agreement,” which prosecutors had not obtained. In addition, prosecutors did not follow the judge’s instructions to file a civil judgement against Heastie’s mother.

When asked in 2015 why no civil judgement was sought, the District Attorney’s office was unable to explain why this routine filing had not occurred. In 2015, Heastie’s office issued a statement about the incident, saying that “the lessons imparted to the speaker [Heastie]… included owning up to mistakes and taking responsibility.”

His remarkable achievements have earned him some luxurious lifestyles and some fancy car trips. He is one of the richest and most influential politicians in New York, United States. He stands at an appealing height of 1.71m and has a good body weight which suits his personality.

Heastie represents the 83rd A.D. in the northeast Bronx and was first elected to the Assembly in 2000. Prior to becoming Assembly Speaker, he scored a victory for public health when he championed the passage of a law that prohibited the sale of water containing nicotine to children under 18 years old.

Carl Heastie also authored a law to help victims of domestic violence by releasing them from lease obligations if it is found that remaining in the residence would keep the victim in a dangerous environment. He has been one of the state legislature’s leading advocates for the construction of new schools and his vigilance led to the development of several new schools in his district.

He secured significant funding for housing, education, after-school programming, health and human services, job readiness, and computer training for constituents. As a result of his decades-long mission to secure a safe, modern place for families and residents of the Bronx to enjoy.

Heastie was instrumental in efforts that led to the New York City Economic Development Corporation’s 2016 announcement that a new state-of-the-art YMCA facility would be constructed in the Edenwald neighborhood of the Bronx.

In August 2018, the project officially broke ground and is expected to open in early 2020. The facility has brought 100 new construction jobs, with a 35 percent MWBE contracting goal for design and construction, and will deliver 100 new permanent jobs. Once completed, the new YMCA will provide a wide array of family-friendly activities and recreational space for youth.


As of August 2023, Carl Heastie is single and not married. However, Heastie has a daughter from a previous marriage.
