Marthone ran in the 2012 election for the U.S. House to represent New York's 5th District. He sought the nomination on the Democrat ticket and faced 6th District incumbent Gregory Meeks, Mike Scala, and Allan Jennings Jr. in the June 26 Democratic primary. He was defeated by Meeks.
Small-business owner Joseph Marthone said education is the way to solve the nation's problems.
At a forum in early June, the three challengers and a representative of Meeks discussed issues of importance. Jennings called for an end to the NYPD "stop and frisk" policy. Marthone pledged to fight hydrofracking and airplane noise pollution. Scala criticized Meeks for supporting the Budget Control Act, which took away subsidized loans for graduate students. Meeks was busy in Washington at the time of the forum, but his representative said that most of the issues brought up were city and state issues, not national ones -- indicating that the challengers were not prepared for federal politics.
