Personal life
Ackerman who sports a white carnation boutonnière each day lives on a houseboat named the Unsinkable II while in Washington D. Ackerman voted in favor of the Troubled Asset Relief Program. In addition the Congressman lobbied federal security officials — with the September 11 2001 attacks in mind — to use retired law enforcement officers as screeners at New York airports and he pressed President Bush to make good on his promise to provide New York with US$20 billion in additional 9/11 disaster aid.

On March 15 2012 Ackerman announced that he would retire at the end of the 112th Congress on January 3 2013 after fifteen terms and would not seek re-election in November 2012. Gary Leonard Ackerman (born November 19 1942) was a U. Representative from New York serving from 1983 to 2013.
