Biography

Assemblyman  Mike Lawler

Mike Lawler was elected to the New York State Assembly on November 3, 2020. His district is comprised of the southern portion of Rockland County.

As an Assemblyman, Mike will work to reduce the state’s onerous tax burden, bring fiscal discipline to its budget, provide law enforcement with the resources needed to do its work, and craft legislation to improve public safety.

Mike is a lifelong Rockland County resident and graduate of Suffern High School. In 2009, he earned a degree in Business Administration with a double major in Accounting and Finance from Manhattan College. His hard work earned him the distinction of Valedictorian of his graduating class.

Prior to being elected to the Assembly, Mike served as Deputy Town Supervisor in Orangetown under Supervisor Teresa Kenny, and previously worked in the Westchester County Executive’s Office as an advisor to Rob Astorino. In those roles, he gained invaluable experience dealing with issues ranging from crafting a disciplined budget to public policy and community outreach initiatives. 

Previously, Mike served as Executive Director of the State Republican Party and has helped secure the election of candidates at federal, state, and local levels.

In addition to his distinguished public service career, Mike is also a successful small-business owner. He will bring his experience and knowledge from the private sector – he previously founded his own government affairs and public relations firm – to best serve his constituents.

Mike and his wife, Doina, live in Pearl River.
