Mayor Mike Spano serves as the 42nd Mayor of the City of Yonkers. Mayor Spano is a lifelong Yonkers resident, husband and father of three who has dedicated his life to standing up as a voice for Yonkers families and communities.
Spano was first elected to the State Assembly in 1992 as its youngest member. Due to the state’s reapportionment plan, his seat was eliminated later that same year. However, he ran again in 1994 and proudly served his constituents for nearly a decade until deciding to put his family first and not run for re-election, allowing him to spend more time with his wife and three young children.
In his time in the private sector, Spano worked at one of New York’s top governmental relations firms and served on the Board of Directors for the Leake and Watts Children’s Services. After his children became school-aged, he decided to return to public service and ran successfully once again for the State Assembly where he represented the people of Yonkers in the 93rd Assembly District.
Spano is also a member of numerous community organizations such as the Yonkers Chamber of Commerce, Access Westchester, Exchange Club of Yonkers, Sons of Italy, and an Honorary Member (non-veteran) of the Armando Rauso AMVETS Post. He is also is a former Board Member of the Westchester School for Special Children.
