Zeferetti in 1980

Leo C. Zeferetti (July 15, 1927 – March 21, 2018) was an American politician. He served as a member of the Democratic Party.

Zeferetti served as a member of the United States House of Representatives from New York from January 3, 1975 through January 3, 1983.[1]

Zeferetti was born in Brooklyn, New York. He studied at New York University in 1963, and Baruch College from 1964 until 1966.[2]

Zeferetti was a member of the New York State Crime Control Planning Board from 1972 until 1974 and a representative to President’s Conference on Correction, 1971.

In 1980, he was nearly defeated for reelection. In 1982, his district was eliminated in redistricting, and the bulk of its territory was merged with the Staten Island-based district of freshman Republican Guy Molinari, who defeated him in the general election that year.

Zeferetti died on March 21, 2018 in Davie, Florida at the age of 90.[3]
