Gary Lipson, a White Plains resident, veteran, entrepreneur and attorney, will challenge incumbent Democrat Chris Burdick for a seat in the New York State Assembly to represent the 93rd district.
“Run-away inflation, increasingly violent crime, excessive government spending, and failing public schools are challenges facing all New Yorkers,” Lipson said. “Our representatives in Albany are failing to successfully address these challenges and new leadership is needed to revive our once-sterling state economy and make living in New York affordable again.”
Since 2017, Lipson is a solo practitioner with an office in White Plains who focuses on intellectual property transactions. He earned a law degree from Western New England University, and subsequently an MBA from Columbia University. In 1999 he began 19 years in various roles for IBM, following earlier experience as a patent attorney and a computer analyst. After high school, he served three years active duty with the United States Army followed by three years in the US Army Reserves. He has been married for 32 years and has one son.
