Goshen, NY, October 29, 2020) – Mike Martucci, candidate for the 42nd State Senate District seat, today announced that Orange County Clerk and longtime respected public servant Annie Rabbitt has endorsed his candidacy for the State Senate. County Clerk Rabbitt specifically noted Martucci’s Families First agenda, dedication to public safety, and his record of accomplishment as key reasons why she is supporting his candidacy.

“I have known and respected Mike Martucci for years. When I was in the Assembly, we successfully fought together to create new laws to protect children from sexual predators and as an active member of the community, he is always working to make our region a better place for families and children,” Rabbitt said. “Whether it was running a company that got thousands of children to school safely every day, speaking out against the irresponsible bail elimination laws that make our streets less safe, or giving back to the community through the creation of a local charity, Mike Martucci puts families first and that is why I urge everyone in the 42nd Senate District to vote for him on November 3rd

 County Clerk Rabbitt, known simply as Annie, has blazed a long career of public service and made her mark in the community by holding many leadership roles. A long-time local business owner, she served in the State Assembly from 2005 to 2013 and was then elected as Orange County Clerk, a position she currently holds.

“Annie Rabbitt is a trailblazer and a public servant that has always put the people and the families of our area first,” Martucci said. “She’s fought to make our streets safer, streamline government, create jobs, and make access to healthcare a priority and these are all issues I will fight hard for in the State Senate. Putting families first means safety, economic opportunity and clean sustainable communities. I am honored to have Annie’s support and endorsement this year.”
