NEW HAMPTON – Businessman and farmer Michael Martucci of New Hampton has announced he is running as a Republican for the 42nd State Senate District seat representing Western Orange County and the Catskills.
The post is currently held by Democrat Jennifer Metzger of Rosendale, a freshman lawmaker.
“As I travel around the 42nd State Senate District listening to what’s on the minds of our friends and neighbors, I see that same sense of hope and anxiety about the things we all want for ourselves and our children – good-paying jobs, affordable quality healthcare, a brighter future,” Martucci said. “Should I be fortunate to serve as state senator, you can be sure I’ll do that job with the same care and concern for you, our community and state.”
Martucci started his own transportation business, Quality Bus Service, at age 22 and sold it in 2018 with over 500 employees and 350 school buses.
