Candidate to challenge Metzger

Posted

ORANGE COUNTY, NY — A Republican candidate has emerged to run against Democratic Sen. Jen Metzger this year. He is Mike Martucci who grew up on the Town of Minisink. Martucci began a school bus company that eventually grew to include more than 350 buses and 500 hundred employees. He sold the company in 2018.

During his years as the owner of Quality Bus Service, Martucci became active in school transportation safety and innovation by becoming a member of the New York Association for Pupil Transportation and the New York School Bus Contractors Association—two New York school transportation organizations. As a member of both associations, Martucci was very active in promoting school transportation safety, training and education initiatives.

Martucci is a member of the board of directors and treasurer for the SUNY Orange Foundation, which provides scholarships for individuals seeking to attain a college education. He also chairs the annual SUNY Orange Golfing for Scholarships event to raise money for the college’s athletic scholarship fund.
Martucci, his wife Erin, son Mike Jr., and daughters Elizabeth and Catherine live in the Town of Wawayanda.
