Biography of Marc Scaringi from Scaringi for Senate 2012
Marc was born and raised in Pittsburgh. He learned the value of hard work and personal responsibility from his father, who was a fully commissioned furniture salesman. Marc graduated from Georgetown University in Washington, working various part-time jobs to help pay for his schooling.
Following college, he returned to Pittsburgh and began working as a small business manager. In the early 90’s, Marc watched with great concern the leftward, Big Government direction the country was heading under Bill Clinton and the Democratic Congress and chose to join the fight to get the country back on track by volunteering on Rick Santorum’s campaign for the US Senate. Santorum beat the odds, defeating an incumbent Senator, becoming part of the Republican Revolution of 1994. Santorum asked Marc to join his Washington, D.C. staff, and Marc assisted the Senator in pushing for such initiatives as a balanced budget amendment and welfare reform.
In 1996, Marc came back to Pennsylvania to help lead Mike Fisher’s successful campaign to become Attorney General of Pennsylvania. Fisher appointed Marc to a senior staff position within his administration. During his time at the Attorney General’s Office, Marc attended law school at night at Widener University, earning his law degree in 2001.
Later that year, Marc left politics and went to work as a small town lawyer in Perry County. In 2005, Marc and his wife Melanie opened their own full-service law firm in Harrisburg, which has grown to three locations, employing 17 people.
Once again concerned about our nation’s abrupt move to the left, this time under Barack Obama, Bob Casey and the other liberals in Congress, Marc re-entered the political world late in 2010, announcing his candidacy for the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania. PoliticsPA reported that Marc has become known for “his dogged campaigning across the state,” and Harrisburg’s Patriot News described Marc as “articulate, polished, immensely engaging…small-town attorney turned capital-city legal entrepreneur — reads like the citizen-politician the Founding Fathers dreamed of running the government.”
Marc lives in Camp Hill with Melanie, his wife of more than 10 years, and their three children.
