Frank Mazzilli (born December 7, 1962) is a former politician in Ontario, Canada. He was a Progressive Conservative member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1999 to 2003.

Background[edit]

Mazzilli has a diploma from the Ontario Police College, and worked as a member of the police force in London, Ontario from 1982 to 1999.

Politics[edit]

In the federal election of 1997 he ran as a Progressive Conservative candidate in the riding of London West, but lost to Liberal Sue Barnes by almost 14,000 votes.[1]

He was elected to the Ontario legislature for the riding of London—Fanshawe in the provincial election of 1999, defeating Liberal Peter Mancini and New Democrat Irene Mathyssen in a close three-way race.[2] In 2002, he served as a co-chair of the Ontario Crime Control Commission.

The Progressive Conservatives had lost much of their urban support by the time of the 2003 provincial election, and Mazzilli dropped to a third-place finish in London—Fanshawe against Mathyssen and the winner, Liberal Khalil Ramal.[3]

His younger brother John Mazzilli ran unsuccessfully for the Conservative Party of Canada in both the 2004 and 2006 federal elections.[4][5] Frank worked both times as his campaign co-chairman.
