Meet Senator Monica Martinez
For the past two years Senator Monica Martinez has been working hard in the New York State Senate to enact groundbreaking reforms and pass important policies providing better opportunities to all New Yorkers and with your help she can continue to make great strides delivering for our families, our children, our environment and our most vulnerable populations.
Monica came to this country at the age of three from her native El Salvador and witnessed her parents sacrifice so much and fight so hard to give her the opportunity to succeed. Monica attended Binghamton University, New York University and Stony Brook University where she studied diligently to become an educator and a school administrator, giving back to her hometown. She had the desire to help more people outside the four walls of her classroom and office and decided to step up and serve as the legislator of the Ninth Legislative District in the Suffolk County Legislature. Monica’s desire to assist others grew and she knew she could help even more communities by running for the NYS Senate. It has been a true honor for her to serve the residents of the Third Senatorial District and she wants to continue to fight for them as Suffolk’s Senator.
