In 2009, Yassky ran for the office of New York City Comptroller. He was endorsed by much of the press, Ed Koch and his former boss, Sen. Charles Schumer. The New York Times on August 23, 2009, attributed its endorsement to his “skill, intelligence, and independence.” In the Democratic primary held on September 15, 2009, Yassky was the runner-up with 107,474 votes, or approximately 30% of the votes cast. He lost in the run-off with 44.4% of the vote to John Liu, who had more support among union members and minority groups.


In 2006, Yassky ran for the Democratic Party’s nomination for the 11th Congressional District seat, an open seat held by the retiring Congressman Major Owens. He was part of a four-way race which also included New York State Senator Carl Andrews, New York City Council member Yvette D. Clarke and Major Owens’s son Chris Owens.

On August 30, 2006, The New York Times endorsed Yassky, citing his “stellar record on the Council” and criticizing his rivals for not making a substantial case for their election, and the Democratic leadership within Brooklyn for failing to find qualified black candidates for this seat.

Yassky was one of 29 councilmembers who voted in 2008 to extend term limits for themselves effectively ignoring two previous public votes imposing a limit of two terms.
