MEET OUR SENATOR
A PROVEN FIGHTER
Since being elected to serve in the State Legislature, Mark Walczyk has been a voice of reason in Albany. He is a Republican fighter with conservative principles who fights for families, calls out corruption, promotes the economy as well as the future of our region and defends the Constitution.
A DEVOTED PUBLIC SERVANT
Soon after graduating from the University of Albany, Mark began a career in public service with a focus on statewide policy and desire to improve life for residents of Upstate New York. Mark joined the staff of state Senator Patty Ritchie in 2011 where his passion for constituent services first emerged. In 2015, Mark was elected to the Watertown City Council, a nonpartisan council.
As an assemblyman, Mark has helped to cultivate an environment for job creation in Northern New York. He has proven to be committed to investing in aging infrastructure all while protecting our precious rivers and lakes. He remains a strong proponent of policy that empowers teachers and gives students the opportunity to be successful in job preparation training at the secondary and collegiate levels.

Mark is a member of the following: Committee on Agriculture, Committee on Cities 2, Committee on Energy and Telecommunications, Committee on Internet and Technology, and Committee on Legislative Commision on Rural Resources.

A PROVEN FIGHTER
Against NYC Political Control
Like you, and many other New Yorkers, Mark believes local government is closer to the people and so serves the people best. You should have a choice when it comes to vaccines. Furthermore, businesses, schools, and local governments should be making decisions about how they want to operate, not Albany or DC political appointees.
No more mandates. Our constitutional republic was never meant for a Governor to crown
themselves king or queen, ruling through executive order and bureaucratic fiat. Mark Walczyk led a campaign to strip Andrew Cuomo of his power.
