William Powers (politician)
Powers was an aide to Senator Al D'Amato. He was elected state chairman two months after the New York Republicans had suffered a crushing defeat in the 1990 gubernatorial election. At the time, the state committee was over $1 million in debt, and Republicans controlled only 19 of New York's 62 counties. Over the next four years, Powers led a rebirth of the party which saw the election of Rudy Giuliani as mayor of New York City in 1993 and the election of George Pataki as governor in 1994.
Powers and his wife, Judy have 3 sons, William, Jason, and Matthew as well as 10 grandchildren. The oldest grandchild, Chloe, is now 15 years old.
