Scott Stringer (born 1960) is a New York Democratic politician and the current Borough President of Manhattan. His mother is a cousin of Bella Abzug. Stringer grew up in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Upper Manhattan, attended Manhattan public schools and graduated from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. In 1983, he became a legislative assistant to Assemblyman, and future Congressman, Jerrold Nadler. During these years, he supported Democratic candidates such as Governor Mario Cuomo. In 1992, Stringer ran for Nadler's Assembly seat representing the Upper West Side when Nadler replaced deceased Congressman Ted Weiss.

During his Assembly career, Stringer served as Chairman of the Cities Committee, Chairman of the Real Property Taxation Committee and Chairman of the Oversight, Analysis and Investigation Committee.

In 2001, Stringer ran unsuccessfully for Public Advocate of New York City. In 2005, he entered the race to succeed C. Virginia Fields as Manhattan Borough President. On September 13 2005, he won the Democratic primary against 9 other candidates and was later elected in the November general election. He took office as Borough President on January 1, 2006.

According to New York Democratic sources, Stringer is reportedly planning a run for Comptroller of New York in 2009.
