Mary Anne Krupsak (b. March 26, 1932 Schenectady, New York) is an American lawyer and politician from New York. She was Lieutenant Governor of New York from 1975 to 1978.[1]

Life[edit]

She is the daughter of Ambrose M. Krupczak and Mamie (Wytrwal) Krupczak.[2] She grew up in Amsterdam, New York where her parents operated a pharmacy and her father served as a Democratic member of the Board of Supervisors of Montgomery County, New York, representing the City of Amsterdam's Fourth Ward. She is of Polish ancestry.[3]

Krupsak served two terms in the New York State Assembly and one term in the New York State Senate before running for Lieutenant Governor of New York in 1974.[1]

Elected with Hugh Carey, Krupsak became upset with how Carey treated her in office and felt she was not given enough to do. After committing to run for a second term with Carey in 1978, Krupsak decided to withdraw from the ticket and instead challenge Carey for the Democratic nomination for governor.[1] She lost the primary to Carey and after running unsuccessfully for Congress, retired from politics.

After her tenure as Lt. Governor, she was a senior partner at Krupsak and Mahoney, P.C., Attorneys at Law in Albany, New York[4] and was senior partner and co-founder of Krupsak, Wass de Czege and Associates, an Economic Development Consulting firm based in Buffalo, New York.
