Game Changer: Maureen Koetz

Maureen Koetz


As a moderate, pro-choice, Republican woman, voices like Maureen Koetz’s have become all too rare in politics. WCF is incredibly proud to support this first-time candidate, Navy veteran, single mother, and Queens native. In addition to being a champion for all New York women, Maureen will restore the integrity of the office currently held by the New York Assembly Speaker.


New York State Assembly – New York’s 65th District – Challenger. Maureen is challenging Sheldon Silver, the sitting New York Assembly Speaker plagued by numerous scandals.


Maureen was the first in her family to attend college, earning her BA from American University and a law degree from the Washington College of Law at American University.

She then entered the Judge Advocate General Corps of the United States Navy.

After the Navy, Maureen served in a series of legal and management positions, and was eventually appointed acting Assistant Secretary for Installations, Environment and Logistics for the U.S. Air Force.

Additionally, she served with distinction as Counsel to the EPA and to U.S. Senator Peter Domenici, as Environmental Counsel to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and as Environmental Policy Director at the Nuclear Energy Institute.

Maureen has also taught graduate courses in Environmental Finance at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University.

She currently owns a small consulting firm that specializes in sustainability of both built and natural infrastructure assets.

  • ★ 50/50 Representation

    Why should good government depend on only half of the nation’s human capital? WCF commits to 50/50 representation of women and men in elected office by 2028.

  • ★ Common Ground

    Common ground just means problems get solved more collaboratively, for the good of more people. It’s the bedrock of our leadership at home and abroad.

  • ★ Viability for Election

    It takes more than money to make a candidate worth electing. WCF looks for guts, street sense, situational awareness, resilience -- the full range of gifts a woman brings to the race.

  • ★ Non-Partisan

    A woman’s place is in every party, every elected office, at every level. Period.
