Stan Lundine (born February 4, 1939) is a politician from Jamestown, New York who has been Mayor of Jamestown, a United States Representative, and lieutenant governor of New York. A Democrat, he was Mayor from 1970 to 1976; in the latter year he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives after the resignation of James F. Hasings in the district representing the Southern Tier of New York State. As a Congressman, Lundine focused on finance, banking and economic development policy, and also served on the Science Committee.
In 1986, Lundine declined to seek reelection to Congress in order to be Mario Cuomo's running mate for Lieutenant Governor of New York. The pair was elected in 1986 and 1990. As lieutenant governor, Lundine worked on housing, technology, economic development, and job training programs and policies. He was an advocate for the creation of a high speed rail link connecting New York State cities together. He was a frequent surrogate speaker for Cuomo around the state. He also used his position as President of the State Senate to handle legislative liaision for Cuomo.
There were reports that Lundine accepted the lieutenant governorship under the belief that Cuomo would be elected President and he would succeed to the governorship, a belief which did not pan out. In 1993, Lundine came the closest to the governorship, when Cuomo was considered for a Supreme Court appointment.
In 1994, Cuomo and Lundine were defeated for reelection by George Pataki and Betsy McCaughey Ross. Lundine retired for elective politics at this point, though he briefly considered a bid for governor in 1998. In 2002 he was an early supporter of Carl McCall for governor.
