Andrew Stein shortened his name when he entered politics. He was a member of the New York State Assembly from 1969 to 1977, sitting in the 178th, 179th, 180th, 181st and 182nd New York State Legislatures.

In 1989, a decision by the United States Supreme Court declared the Board of Estimate was unconstitutional, in that it violated the principle of "one man, one vote", and a rewriting of the city charter called for the city council presidency to be abolished and the office of public advocate to be created as the presiding officer of the council and first in line of succession to the mayor.
In 1977, Stein was elected as borough president of Manhattan, defeating New York City Clerk David Dinkins in the Democratic primary.
