Personal Details

Gerard Lewis was an At-Large Committee Member of the Libertarian Party of New York.

Lewis was a longtime Howard Stern listener who would frequently attend Stern's live events when Lewis lived on Long Island (he moved to Buffalo in 1989).[1] When Howard Stern announced on March 21, 1994 that he would be seeking the Libertarian Party of New York's nomination for Governor, Lewis joined the party to attend the annual state convention.[1]

Between joining the party and attending the state convention, Lewis signed up new state party members under his own initiative, and attended the local Niagara Frontier chapter's convention on March 30, 1994 to speak on Stern's behalf. [1]

Lewis drove to the New York Convention 1994 in Albany and attended both days, including the banquet on Saturday night. Lewis voted for Howard Stern for the governor nomination on day one.[1] He was one of only a handful of Stern fans who stayed for the business meeting on day two, where Lewis was elected as an At-Large Representative to the party.[1]

Lewis left the state committee after Howard Stern dropped out in August of 1994.[1]
