City & State Names Mike McKeon as One of the Most Powerful Players in Albany Politics

Michael McKeon is recognized on City & State’s 2014 Albany Power 100. Among the most powerful government relations experts in Albany, McKeon is tight with bigwigs across the political spectrum. He founded Republicans for Cuomo in 2010, was a senior communications adviser to Rudy Giuliani during his mayoralty and led the Pataki communications staff post-9/11. He continues to enjoy a strong relationship with the governor and has earned his stripes as an adviser and pundit both his colleagues and elected officials listen to closely.
