In 2004, she ran as the Democratic candidate in New York's 29th U.S. Congressional district race, holding her opponent to 50.8% of the vote and becoming one of the youngest women to run for federal office. She has also worked as the Statewide Neighborhood Program Director for Hillary Clinton's U.S. Senate campaign and as Upstate Director for the New York Democratic State Committee. Further, from 1996-2000 Ms. Barend spearheaded the successful effort to convert New York State's Route 17 into Interstate 86. This interstate campaign resulted in the passage of the Interstate 86 Act, a bill which she drafted for Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan that was included in the 1998 Federal Transportation Reauthorization. Ms. Barend graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and received her Master's Degree in Public Policy at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.
