A native of Washington County, Tarantino is a graduate of St. Mary’s Academy, Siena College and Albany Law School. Tarantino is presently the owner of Maple Abstract & Realty Corp. and the sole proprietor of the Kenneally & Tarantino law firm.

I intend to use my experience and my professional skills to bring jobs, to retain jobs, and to encourage the growth of small business.”
Tarantino said he intends to adopt a platform featuring cooperation with Governor Cuomo’s “New York is Open for Business” campaign, as well as boosting funding of distressed school districts, examining the status of unfunded mandates and creating an open dialogue with all stakeholders in the district, starting with elected officials, small and large business owners, and individuals frustrated with the bureaucracy of state government.
