Congressman Marcus J. Molinaro was elected to serve New York’s 19th Congressional District in November 2022. The District includes Broome, Chenango, Columbia, Cortland, Delaware, Greene, Sullivan, Tioga, and Tompkins counties as well as part of Otsego County and Ulster County.

A native New Yorker, former Mayor, State Assemblyman, and County Executive, Marc is a career problem solver who ran for Congress to make Upstate New York a better place to live, work, and raise a family. 

In Congress, Marc serves on the House Committee on Agriculture, House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure, and the House Committee on Small Business. 

Marc began his career in public service in 1994 at the age of 18, when he was first elected to serve on the Village of Tivoli Board of Trustees. In 1995, he was elected Mayor of Tivoli, becoming the youngest mayor in America. Helping to revitalize his community, Marc was re-elected to this position five times. Concurrently, he served as a Dutchess County Legislator for four terms where he led efforts to strengthen his community’s response to child abuse and domestic violence. 

From 2006 to 2011, Marc continued his service in Albany, representing the 103rd District in the New York State Assembly. In 2011, Marc was elected to serve as Dutchess County Executive. Marc served three terms as County Executive and held a leadership role in the New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC) and served as President of the New York State County Executives Association. Marc resigned as Dutchess County Executive in 2023 to serve in Congress. 

Throughout his career, Marc has taken bold action to deliver results for Upstate New York. After identifying shortcomings in the Dutchess County criminal justice system, Marc revamped its programming and reprioritized prevention, intervention, diversion, and enforcement. As a lifelong champion for conservation, Marc advanced preservation efforts of farmlands, waterways, and local environmental treasures. 

Marc has also been known for developing innovative solutions to local issues. In 2015, Marc established “ThinkDIFFERENTLY”. The program challenged Dutchess County residents, businesses, and municipalities to break down barriers for those with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities. Additionally, Marc implemented a comprehensive approach to healthcare in Dutchess County, notably spearheading initiatives that expanded access to mental health services. 

Marc resides in Catskill with his wife Corinne and children Abigail, Jack, Elias, and Theo.

Marc remains active in the Upstate New York community and has received numerous awards from community and civic organizations for his service.
