Frank Skartados (/skɑrˈtædɵs/; January 3, 1956 – April 15, 2018) was an Greek-born American businessman and politician. He is the Assemblyman for the 104th district of the New York State Assembly after defeating 14-year incumbent Thomas Kirwan in 2008.

Skartados was the Assemblyman of the 100th district from 2008 – 2010. Skartados lost to Kirwan in a 2011 election, but Kirwan died shortly afterwards. In March 20, 2012, a special election was held for the vacant seat, which Skartados won with more than 60 percent of the vote. He was re-elected for a full term on November 6, 2012 and on November 4, 2014 by 60% of the vote.

On April 12, 2018, Skartados was hospitalized in Newburgh, New York with a "serious illness" and according his chief of staff is "not likely going to recover".[1] He died three days later of pancreatic cancer at the hospital at the age of 62.[2]
