In 1973, he was the Libertarian Party's first candidate for Manhattan Borough President and in 1974, he was nominated as the Libertarian Party's first candidate for Lt. Governor, as Jerome Tuccille's running mate. He later served as Secretary of the Libertarian Party of New York from 1977 to 1978. He once again ran for Manhattan Borough President in 1977.
