Susan J. Serino (born September 8, 1961)[1] is member of the New York State Senate, representing the 41st district since 2015. The district encompasses portions of the Hudson Valley, including Poughkeepsie. Serino is a Republican.

Prior to her time in the Senate, Serino served as a member of the Dutchess County Legislature.


Serino was born and raised in Dutchess County, New York.[2] The daughter of immigrants, Serino worked waiting tables, and later started her own childcare business.[3]

In 1996, Serino joined the real estate industry, opening a realtors office in Poughkeepsie.[4] In 2003, she moved her office to Hyde Park, New York. Today, the office has over twenty sales associates.[5]

In 2010, Serino first won elected office as a member of the Hyde Park town board.[6] A year later, in 2011, Serino was elected to the Dutchess County Legislature, and would be re-elected in 2013, running unopposed.[7]

New York Senate[edit]

In 2014, Serino was recruited by Senate Republicans to run against one-term incumbent Terry Gipson.[8] While Gipson had won election in 2012, the district for years beforehand was reliably Republican.[9] In a very bruising race, Serino defeated Gipson, 52% to 48%.[10] Gipson would seek a rematch against Serino in 2016, this time losing 55% to 45%.[11]

In 2018, Serino narrowly won re-election to a third term against Democrat Karen Smythe, by only 688 votes.[12]
