Meet Tony D'Urso

Before becoming an Assemblyman, Tony D’Urso built schoolhouse and orphanages in Haiti, Kenya; and Rural Nicaragua.  He remains active with three different non-profit organizations that do humanitarian work in developing countries.

Tony immigrated to the United States when he was twenty-one years old and with only eight years of formal schooling.  While working full time, he earned his high school, bachelors; masters degrees.

As a small boy, in Formia, Italy; Tony witnessed both of his parents risking their lives to hide a Jewish family from the German soldiers.  This experience shaped his identity and gave his life a sense of purpose.

Tony and his wife, Maria, lived in New Hyde Park for 35 years before moving to Port Washington. They have four children: Anthony Jr., Joseph, Peter, and Rosanna. Tony is also the proud grandfather of Aidan, Hannah, Luca, Matteo, Nicholas, and Ryan.
