Omy Maldonado is a lifelong resident of the Lehigh Valley and a proud member of his community. He is a neighbor who has seen and shared the struggles working families face every day. Omy grew up in poverty on the southside of Bethlehem where he witnessed firsthand how his mother had to decide every month between feeding her children or paying the bills. Omy never allowed his humble beginnings stop him from wanting more for himself and his community.
In 2009, Omy joined the Marine Corps. He served in an artillery unit reaching the rank of Staff Sergeant. He served honorably and through hard work, honor, and integrity his military service was able to put him on a different path. Omy left the Marine Corps in 2017 and returned home to Pennsylvania with his family. Omy works as a consultant helping companies figure out ways to improve their businesses. Today, he is a husband, a father and a Marine Corps veteran who was deployed twice. Omy is a first-generation college graduate and was able to turn growing up poor into earning an MBA.
Omy has lived through the past two years and saw how the priorities of his community were not the priority of Harrisburg. Now he is running for the Pennsylvania State Senate because our community deserves someone who lives through the same issues as we all do. He believes it’s time we have someone new representing us. Someone who shares the everyday struggles of today. Someone who has the same concerns for our future. And someone who will fight for every person left behind, every child in need of a better education, and who will always put our community first.
