Meet Mike

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

As an Assemblyman, Mike has fought one-party control in Albany to reduce the state’s onerous tax burden, bring fiscal discipline to its budget, secure additional funding for law enforcement and first responders, craft legislation to improve public safety, encourage economic growth, and fully fund our schools.

Prior to being elected to the Assembly, Mike served as Deputy Town Supervisor in Orangetown and previously worked in the Westchester County Executive’s Office as a top advisor to Rob Astorino. In those roles he gained invaluable experience on issues ranging from crafting a fiscally responsible budget to maintaining public safety, consistently delivering key services to the communities he served.

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 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.

Mike and his wife, Doina, live in Pearl River with their daughter Julianna.
