“I was up in the mountains. I left at 6:15 a.m. It was 48 degrees. It felt good,” Robert Martucci Jr., recently-retired Salisbury Township Ward One Commissioner, said Aug. 25, after his two-and-one-half-hour drive back to the Lehigh Valley.
The mountains are in Hillsgrove, Sullivan County, where Martucci and his wife Sue have a home. Martucci built the house 17 years ago.
The home will become their main residence when the Martuccis depart their Salisbury Township home, Martucci sells his longtime Lehigh Valley business and he concludes his commissioner duties.
