JP Marzullo (born 20th century) is an American politician. He has served at the Vice Chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party since January 2013.[1] On "Tax Day"[when?], Marzullo announced that he would be running for the New Hampshire Senate in District 8.[2]

"I am a Republican because I believe in our Constitution and the opportunities we have in our country," says Marzullo, "I come from an immigrant family who always said that 'you can be anything you want to be in America'; the American Dream! Liberty and Freedom is what we stand for not Government invasion of our rights and entitlements." [3]

Personal life[edit]

Marzullo was born in Greenwich, Connecticut, the son of a carpenter and World War II veteran. Marzullo was the first member of his large family to go to college. His mother died of breast cancer. This inspired Marzullo to pursue a career fighting Medicaid/Obamacare expansion in New Hampshire.[2]

Marzullo, a resident of Deering, New Hampshire, is married to Donna Marzullo and has one son.[2]

Political stance[edit]

Marzullo considers himself a fiscal conservative and liberty Republican. He stands against Obamacare's Medicaid expansion avidly and is for less taxes and federal government control. He also stands up for gay rights in New Hampshire, citing his gay son as his inspiration for doing so.[4] "If you knew your child was gay," asked Marzullo, "would you disown him or her?"[4]

Marzullo considers this his calling since his mother's death from breast cancer at a very early age.[2]

"One of the adult members of the Ecumenical Youth Council was the CEO of Pfizer," says Marzullo, "I did not know what he did when he offered to hire me for a position with his company. I went to see him in the Pfizer World Headquarters in NYC and Jack Powers, who I only knew as Jack, offered me a job. A year after working in Pharmaceuticals as a representative Jack called me to tell me he had purchase a small X-ray company that made mammography equipment and would I be interested in working in that division. My mother died in part because the technology did not exist to do breast cancer screening. This had happened for a reason and everything in my life now made sense to me. What was a very difficult event in my life, had a reason for happening. I finally knew why I was here and what I could do to honor my mom. I took the job, worked with several countries including Sweden to help develop equipment that could be used to screen woman for breast cancer and save lives. I spent 39 years in the Radiology field and retired in July of 2009."[2]
