Meet Alex

Working in the New York State Legislature over the last five years, Alex knows what effective and responsible government looks like and how it should work for our area's residents.


Through his work as a Legislative Analyst and Communications Director in the New York State Senate and Assembly, Alex understands the critical role that our state, county, and local governments play now more than ever amidst a devastating global pandemic, working to effectively communicate key public health information to the public and helping craft policies that help ordinary people and their families weather this crisis.

Alex grew up in the Village of Castleton attending Schodack Central Schools K-12, and as a lifelong resident of the Town of Schodack, he knows how our area is connected by its people, schools, farms, and rural character that defines our sense of community. Alex went on to receive a Bachelor's Degree in History, as well as Public Policy, from the University at Albany, SUNY.

A proud product of our public schools, Alex is also the son of proud public servants. His mother, Valerie Flood, a retired public school teacher for more than 30 years at Maple Hill Middle School, and his father Kenneth Flood, a civil servant who worked for various local governments and New York State, contributing to his appreciation for real accountability and transparency.

Currently, Alex resides in the Village of Castleton on its historic Main Street, and he can usually be found hiking, frequenting many of the historic sites, nature preserves, and parks our communities and southern Rensselaer County has to offer.
