Joseph E. Robach (born February 22, 1958) is an American politician from New York.

Biography[edit]

He was born on February 22, 1958, the son of Assemblyman Roger J. Robach (1934–1991) and Teresa Fallocco.

Robach entered politics as a Democrat, and was elected to the New York State Assembly (134th D.) in November 1991, to the seat vacated by the death of his father. He remained in the Assembly until 2002, sitting in the 189th, 190th, 191st, 192nd, 193rd and 194th New York State Legislature. As an Assemblyman, Robach often had the support of the Conservative Party of New York State.

In 2002, Robach became a Republican,[1] and was elected to the New York State Senate defeating the incumbent Democrat Richard A. Dollinger. He represents the 56th district. In 2011, Robach voted against the Marriage Equality Act, which the Senate passed 33-29.
