Biography - Martin G. D’Ambrose

As the fourth generation of my family to call East Rochester home it has given me a deeply personal and unique outlook on what it means to not only work for the Town/Village but to also serve the people that call East Rochester home today. Growing up whether it was playing sports or working to attain the rank of Eagle Scout with Troop 136, East Rochester was and will forever be where my heart is.

After graduating from the L.C. Obourn High School, I went on to obtain an Associates Degree at MCC and then my BA in Theater Arts from SUNY Fredonia. Some might say that my experience in theater and acting helps me in my job and in many ways, it does! Knowing and understanding what my role is and bringing it to life is key to the impact I hope to have every day in East Rochester.

Family continues to be important to me as my wife (Amy Stadler D’Ambrose) and I watch our three children as they transition into adult life. I have and continue to enjoy participating with a variety of volunteer organizations and giving back to the community. Over the past 30 years you might have found me coaching a sports team, mentoring a group of scouts, or serving on a board. Today I continue to be involved with so many wonderful organizations such as the East Rochester Chamber of Commerce, East Rochester Rotary, Sons & Daughters of Italy in America and the Knights of Columbus.

Prior to beginning my service as Village Administrator, I worked for the Otetiana Council, Boy Scouts of America for 18 years in a variety of positions. I believe the flexibility and challenges of those various roles prepared me for the diversity I enjoy every day when I get to the office.

While I may not reside in East Rochester today, this will always be a place I call home.

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve each of you and our entire community.

IT HAPPENED ONE SATURDAY NIGHT — 60 YEARS AGO Read more

According to a number of area sportscasters, it wasn’t supposed to happen that way—the East Rochester Bombers beating the Lyons Lions, 58-57.   While both basketball teams entered the game undefeated, Lyons was known as a powerhouse.  By looking at the history of the two teams, however, perhaps March 24, 1962, was destined to be different.  And what made the outcome of the contest all the more special was that it happened before a crowd estimated to be more than 10,000.
