Susan Molinari



Full Bio

Susan Molinari is a risk-taker and trailblazer for liberal Republicans and working mothers. A U.S. Representative from 1990 to 1997, Ms. Molinari quickly became “one of the most distinctive Members of the House” and “one of the most visible voices for her party” according to the authoritative Almanac of American Politics. As a result, after just four years in Washington, and just weeks after the election of the first GOP House majority in 40 years, Ms. Molinari was elected by her colleagues to the eight-person Republican Majority Leadership, making her the highest-ranking woman in the Congress.

Today Susan Molinari is a Senior Principal in the government relations, advocacy and strategy section of Bracewell & Giuliani LLP in Washington, D.C. As a former Member of Congress from New York, Ms. Molinari helps develop and implement legislative, regulatory and public affairs strategies in the complex federal environment. Known for her determination and bipartisan spirit, she brings to bear nearly two decades of experience in Washington on behalf of her clients.

In addition to her government and broadcast careers, Ms. Molinari has addressed hundreds of audiences on politics, government and the media in nearly every state. She has lectured before business and trade organizations, universities and civic groups from coast-to-coast and was selected as one of the Top Five Speakers of 1998 by the members of Toastmasters International.

Ms. Molinari is married to former New York Congressman Bill Paxon, now a senior advisor at the law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP.
