Ann Marie Buerkle (b. May 8, 1951) is a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from New York. Buerkle was elected by voters from New York's 25th congressional district. Due to New York's 2012 redistricting, Buerkle is running in the newly redrawn 24th district.

She is running for re-election in 2012. David Wasserman of the Cook Political Report has said Buerkle is one of the most vulnerable New York incumbents.[1]
