Mark C. Poloncarz (born November 7, 1967) is an American politician and lawyer. Poloncarz is the county executive of Erie County, New York. Poloncarz, a Democrat, was elected county executive on November 8, 2011 after defeating the incumbent county executive Chris Collins a Republican by a 53 - 47 percentage point margin. Poloncarz was re-elected on November 3, 2015 with 66% of the vote when he easily defeated the Republican candidate Raymond Walter (33% of the vote) and Green Party candidate Eric Jones (1% of the vote). Poloncarz is only the 2nd Democrat to be elected to the position of county executive in the 51-year history of the position.
Entering 2015 Poloncarz was heavily favored to be re-elected county executive; however it was expected he would face a Republican challenge from one of three candidates: incumbent county clerk and former New York Secretary of State Christopher Jacobs, incumbent county comptroller Stefan Mychajliw, or legislator Ed Rath, the grandson of the first Erie County Executive Edward Rath.

In 2018, Poloncarz was named Vice-Chair of the National Association of Counties Large Urban County Caucus. Also in 2018, Poloncarz was named Chairman of the New York State Association of Counties Climate Resiliency Committee.
In direct response to President Donald Trump's order withdrawing the United States from the Paris Agreement, on June 2, 2017 Poloncarz issued his seventeenth Executive Order in response to the federal decision, directing county departments to prepare a report to implement a plan of action for Erie County, New York to meet the goals set out in the Paris Agreement by 2025. On January 25, 2018, Poloncarz released the results of the Report prepared by Erie County departments showing that compared to the baseline year of 2005, Erie County as a government had already reduced its greenhouse gas emission usage by 26% in 2014, thereby meaning Erie County has met the goal of a 26-28% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions usage as required by the Paris Agreement.
Also in 2017, Poloncarz released "Initiatives for a Smart Economy 2.0," his administration’s most recent economic development plan to stimulate new growth, while at the same time promote inclusivity in economic development. The plan shares the goal of its predecessor - strengthening the local economy and promotion of job growth - and included 71 initiatives.
