Michael Joseph Stack III (born June 5, 1963) is an American politician serving as the 33rd and current lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania. A member of the Democratic Party, he was a member of the Pennsylvania State Senate, representing the 5th district, from 2001 to 2015.
In 2009, Stack was Democratic leader of Philadelphia's 58th ward.
He was the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor of Pennsylvania in the 2014 election, running with Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tom Wolf. The Wolf/Stack ticket defeated the Republican Tom Corbett/Jim Cawley ticket in the 2014 gubernatorial election. Stack took the oath of office January 20, 2015.
While serving as lieutenant governor, Stack had a high-profile falling out with governor Tom Wolf, owing in part to Stack's alleged mistreatment of staff and a difference in management styles with Wolf.
Stack's grandfather, the first Michael J. Stack, was a U.S congressman, from 1935 to 1939.
