Mike Spano (born April 22, 1964) a former Republican member of the New York State Assembly, currently serves as the Democratic 42nd Mayor of Yonkers, New York. A lifelong Yonkers resident, Spano is married to newscaster Mary Calvi and has three children.
Born and raised in Yonkers, New York, Spano is the ninth of sixteen children. Spano was first elected to the State Assembly in 1992 as the assembly's youngest member. Due to the state’s reapportionment plan, his seat was eliminated later that same year. However, he ran again in 1994 and continued to serve in the Assembly for nearly a decade until he chose not run for re-election.
Within the private sector, Spano worked for a New York governmental relations firm and served on the Board of Directors for the Leake and Watts Children’s Services. After his children became school-aged, he decided to return to public service and ran successfully once again for the State Assembly where he represented the people of Yonkers in the 93rd Assembly District.
In 2011, Spano was elected as Mayor of the City of Yonkers. During his tenure, Spano has passed two consecutive bi-partisan budgets that included historic investment in education and kept taxes within the New York State property tax cap.
Spano is also a member of numerous community organizations such as the Yonkers Chamber of Commerce, Access Westchester, Exchange Club of Yonkers, Sons of Italy, and an Honorary Member (non-veteran) of the Armando Rauso AMVETS Post. He is also a former Board Member of the Westchester School for Special Children.
