Congresswoman Elise Stefanik proudly represents New York’s 21st District in the House of Representatives where she is a Member of both the Armed Services Committee and the Committee on Education and the Workforce. She was elected by her freshman peers in the 114th Congress to serve as the Freshman Representative to the Policy Committee. Elise is proudly the youngest woman ever elected to Congress in United States history.

Prior to winning her election to Congress overwhelmingly by over 20 points, Elise worked at her family’s small business called Premium Plywood Products that was founded in Upstate New York over twenty years ago. Growing up in her family’s small business, Elise learned, lived and understands the values of hard work, perseverance, difficulties, and risk that go along with building, operating and growing small businesses that provide jobs in today’s challenging economy.

Congresswoman Stefanik’s policy focus includes:

  • Creating jobs and economic opportunities for small businesses to    grow in Upstate New York.
  • Reducing the out-of-control tax and regulatory burdens facing small businesses by reforming the tax code to be flatter and fairer and eliminating red tape.
  • Repealing Obamacare and replacing it with common sense solutions to lower health care costs and improve quality and access.
  • Fighting for fiscal responsibility by balancing the budget and protecting and preserving entitlements.
  • Supporting Upstate farmers – the backbone of our North Country communities.
  • Protecting Fort Drum and Advocating for Veterans and Military Families.
  • Pursuing Energy Policies that Help North Country Families and Businesses.
  • Finding solutions for hard working North Country families to help make education higher quality and more affordable.
  • Promoting and strengthening U.S.-Canadian trade relations.

Elise served as Director of Vice Presidential Debate Prep to Paul Ryan where she oversaw all debate preparations for the Republican Vice Presidential nominee. She served as Director of Communications for the Foreign Policy Initiative, which launched Defending Defense, a coalition of think tanks warning of the dangers of the sequester. Prior to her think tank work, she served as the Policy Director for Governor Pawlenty’s Presidential campaign.

From 2006 – 2009, Elise served in the West Wing of the White House as part of President George W. Bush’s Domestic Policy Council Staff and in the Chief of Staff’s office where she assisted in overseeing the policy development process on all economic and domestic policy issues.

As the first member of her immediate family to graduate from college, Elise graduated with Honors from Harvard University where she was only one of three women honored with the Women’s Leadership Award. She served on the Student Advisory Committee of Harvard’s Institute of Politics, the largest political undergraduate organization.

Elise was born and raised in Upstate New York. She graduated cum laude from Albany Academy for Girls, the oldest continuous all girls’ school in the country. She lives in Willsboro, NY where her family has had a home since she was 3.
