Matt Funiciello was born in 1967 in Saratoga Springs, New York, which until a few years ago was in our Congressional District.
He was raised on a small subsistence farm about five miles away in Wilton (also in CD21). He spent his school years in Ottawa, Ontario, returning to live in the U.S. full time in 1988 to start a bakery with his brother.
He has owned and run Rock Hill Bakehouse in South Glens Falls since 1992 and opened Rock Hill Bakehouse Café in Glens Falls in 2002.
He still regularly bakes bread but is involved in his community and issues surrounding it on a daily basis as well. He is active in the peace movement and has worked on behalf of single-payer health care and against the ACA for a living wage ($15/hour), against corporate welfare, for reduction of military spending and fair taxation.
