Meeting at Daemen College-Rosary Hall at 6:15 pm on July 24, 2013.


 Erie County Comptroller Stefan Iwan Mychajliw is the son of Polish and Ukrainian immigrants, the youngest of seven children, who grew up in blue-collar beginnings near the corner of William and Fillmore on the East Side of Buffalo.

Comptroller Mychajliw’s father and paternal grandparents were born in Ukraine and came to America in 1965.  They settled in the Broadway-Fillmore section of the city.  The nucleus of the neighborhood was the Broadway Market and numerous Catholic churches, including Saint Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church at the corner of Fillmore and Oneida where Mychajliw was baptized.

His Great Uncle Frederic “Fritz” Garwol beamed with pride when sharing the family legend of Mychajliw’s Polish Great Grandfather on the maternal side of the family (Bogdan) being the “village strongman” that traveled to numerous villages near the Carpathian Mountains.

While attending Buffalo Public School Bilingual Academy #33 and the Buffalo Academy for Visual and Performing Arts High School, Mychajliw spent his youth at the Babcock Boys and Girls Club and Seneca-Babcock Community Center.

Erie County’s “independent watchdog” has a lengthy career protecting taxpayers following his education at Syracuse University, in his role as an investigative journalist at WKBW-TV and WGRZ-TV in Buffalo.

His award-winning investigative reports uncovered numerous cases of fraud, waste, and abuse in Erie County government that lead to good government reforms that better served taxpayers.

To lead by example Comptroller Mychajliw’s first hard hitting review was of his own department: the Office of Erie County Comptroller.  The top to bottom review revealed troubling inefficiencies.  Numerous reforms were implemented to clean up the department, and a CPA was hired to lead the Audit Division for the first time since 1986.

The people of Erie County elected 39-year-old Stefan I. Mychajliw Erie County Comptroller on November 6th, 2012.  He is the proud father of seven-year-old Mia Theresa Mychajliw, a second-grade student.
