Mike Martucci, candidate for the 42nd State Senate District seat, today announced that he has received the endorsement of the Orange County District Attorney’s Investigators association in his effort to unseat incumbent state senator Metzger. The Investigators Association joined the Orange County Deputy Sheriff’s Police Benevolent Association (PBA), who endorsed Martucci in May.
Recognizing Martucci’s local advocacy, passion, and desire to be as informed as possible, the Orange County District Attorney’s Investigators Association President Thomas L. Reinle said, “In these uncertain times the importance of having a candidate as informed and dedicated to the issues facing the people of New York State cannot be understated. We believe that Mr. Martucci will bring all his passion and knowledge to the position and would be an outstanding member of the New York Senate. As a past successful business owner Mr. Martucci has shown his ability to lead and we know he would bring those qualities to his service in the Senate.”
The endorsement follows a similar one from the Orange County Deputy Sheriff’s Police Benevolent Association, which cited Senator Metzger’s disregard for public safety, and failure to consult the sheriffs of the district before championing her dangerous bail elimination law for criminals.
“The Orange County District Attorney’s Investigators Association is an outstanding group of men and women who are dedicated to doing everything they can to keep our communities safe and I’m honored to receive their endorsement,” said Mike Martucci. “To have yet another law enforcement association support me is a clear indication that the dangerous policies being championed by Senator Metzger are out of touch with our district. We all have a right to feel safe in our communities and putting the rights of felons over our families is the absolute wrong direction to go. I’m fighting for safe streets and I’m pleased to have the men and women who do so for a living join me in this effort.”
The Martucci campaign anticipates many more union endorsements given his reputation of being a principled businessman who has worked closely with unions to advocate for the rights of hardworking women and men across the state.
