Dierdre R. "Dede" Scozzafava (pronounced /skoʊzəˈfavə/,born April 28, 1960) is an American Republican politician in New York. She has represented District 122 in the New York State Assembly, which includes most of St. Lawrence and Lewis Counties in the North Country and a small portion of Oswego County since 1999.

She was the Republican nominee to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2009 special election in New York's 23rd congressional district, but suspended her campaign shortly before the election and threw her support to the eventual Democratic winner, Bill Owens.

Scozzafava was born in Buffalo, but has resided for most of her life in Gouverneur, a small village located halfway between Canton and Watertown. She holds a B.S. degree from the Boston University School of Management, as well as an M.B.A. from the Clarkson University Graduate School of Management.
