Martucci to seek re-election in newly-drawn district

Posted

Senator Mike Martucci (R,C-New Hampton) Tuesday confirmed that he will be running for re-election in the newly drawn Orange County Senate District. The new district is wholly contained in Orange County and represents the vast majority of the county’s population and localities. The map was published by Dr. Jonathan Cervas, a court-appointed Special Master charged with re-drawing New York’s state Senate and congressional districts after the Court of Appeals ruled maps drawn by the state Legislature were unconstitutional.

“I am thrilled that the new Orange County Senate District includes my hometown, all of the communities I currently represent, and many that I have gotten to know well over the past several years,” said Senator Mike Martucci. “I am well-positioned to continue representing Orange County families in Albany and look forward to earning their support once again.”

Martucci seeks to be the first Senator to represent an exclusively Orange County district in the New York State Senate in over 30 years. The proposed senate district includes the cities of Middletown and Port Jervis and the towns of Blooming Grove, Chester, Cornwall, Crawford, Deerpark, Goshen, Greenville, Hamptonburgh, Highlands, Minisink, Monroe, Mount Hope, New Windsor, Palm Tree, Tuxedo, Wallkill, Warwick, Wawayanda and Woodbury.

New Windsor and Cornwall are currently represented by State Senator James Skoufis (D-Cornwall) whose district also includes the Town of Montgomery and the City of Newburgh.

Since the new map was published, many of Orange County’s top officials have thrown their support behind Martucci to be Orange County’s Senator.

“Senator Martucci has been a strong advocate for Orange County taxpayers. Having him represent more of Orange County in the state Senate to work for safer communities and better jobs will be good for all of us,” said Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus.
“No one is more passionate or hardworking than Senator Martucci. He truly cares about the residents and families of Orange County, and his work ethic will continue to serve us well in Albany,” said Orange County Clerk Kelly Eskew.

“While I have truly cherished my time representing communities in Sullivan, Delaware and Ulster counties, Orange County is my home. It’s where I was born and raised, it’s where I went to school and got my start in business, and it’s where I met my wife and we are raising our children. I have worked tirelessly to keep my promises, deliver results, and build bridges with anyone and everyone for the benefit of our communities. No matter the challenge or the issue, I will always put our Orange County families first in Albany,” concluded Martucci.

Martucci is the state Senator for New York’s 42nd senate district, serving since January 2021. Prior to elected office, he was a small businessman who employed hundreds of people locally at his former company, Quality Bus Service, which was responsible for safely transporting thousands of school children each day across the Hudson Valley. Mike and his wife Erin own a farm in the Town of Minisink, and they run a charitable foundation to support local women and children in need, education, job creation, and agriculture. They have three children and live in the Town of Wawayanda. Mike earned his MBA and BS at Marist College and graduated with honors from SUNY Orange, where he was also a Board member of the SUNY Orange Foundation.
