Other Comments:

Jerome Anthony Ambro, Jr. (June 27, 1928 – March 4, 1993) was a member of the United States House of Representatives from 1975 - 1981.


Born in Brooklyn, New York, he attended Brooklyn public elementary schools and graduated from Grover Cleveland High School, Queens, New York in 1946. Ambro earned a B.A. from New York University in 1955.


He served in the United States Army as a member of the Military Police from 1951-1953 where he attained the rank of sergeant. He served the town of Huntington as a budget office and purchasing and personnel director from 1960 - 1967. Later, served on the Suffolk County, New York Board of Supervisors from 1968 - 1969. From 1968-1974 he was served four terms as Supervisor for the town of Huntington, New York. He was simultaneously chairman of Huntington's Urban Renewal Agency, as well as president of Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town of Huntington, New York.


In 1970, he challenged Basil Paterson for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor of New York, but was defeated in the primary election.


He was elected as a Democrat to the 94th, 95th and 96th United States Congresses, and served from January 3, 1975, to January 3, 1981. After leaving Congress, Ambro worked as a lobbyist.


Ambro led the Democratic Party to its first sweep of Huntington elections in 35 years. While Ambro was in office, the town of Huntington became the first municipality to ban the use of the pesticide DDT.


During his first term in the House, Ambro was elected president of his 82-member freshman class. Ambro served on the Public Works and Transportation Committee, and was elected chairman of the House Science and Technology Committee Subcommittee on Natural Resources and the Environment. Ambro played a major role in winning the preservation of wetlands in Massapequa, New York, and having Brookhaven National Laboratory designated as the site of a high-energy reactor.


In 1980, Ambro authored an amendment to the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act (Section 106(f)) to require that the disposal of dredged material into Long Island Sound from any federal project, or from any non-federal project exceeding 25,000 cubic yards (19,000 m³), comply with the environmental criteria for ocean dumping under the MPRSA, in addition to the requirements of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act.


Ambro died at Alexandria, Virginia on March 4, 1993. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.


The East Northport, New York post office building was renamed the Jerome Anthony Ambro, Jr. Post Office Building in 1998. The Town of Huntington named the Jerome Ambro Memorial Wetlands Preserve in honor of Ambro's conservation efforts.
