Welcome to Rome, NY
Thank you for visiting the new and improved RomeNewYork.com website. After meeting and speaking with many of my constituents and Rome’s business leaders, it became clear that the City of Rome should be making every effort to market our community for the exciting economic opportunities coming to the Mohawk Valley. With the support of the Common Council, we have created a new city logo, new website, promotional video’s and marketing materials that will let the world know that Rome, New York is alive and thriving. It’s a great honor and privilege to serve as your Mayor. Please stayed tuned as we make improvements and regular updates to this website.
Onwards & Upwards,
– Mayor Fusco

Matt was a wonderful husband, father, son, teacher, mentor and a friend. He was a dance teacher at a local dance studio where his many students looked up to him. He was loved by the dance community as a mentor and friend.
Matt was diagnosed with glioblastoma with a PNET mutation on October 20, 2012 just 2 months after the birth of our second child Lilah. He was also father to our son Miles who was 2 ½ at the time. Matt underwent a biopsy that turned into an 8 hour surgery to remove the tumor and a lobe of his brain, spending the next week in the ICU of the hospital. About a month after surgery the travels to Boston began for his treatment. He received chemo and radiation Monday-Friday and came home on the weekends. He finished his treatment on January 8, 2013 at which time a scan showed no signs of cancer. We were beyond excited to hear this fabulous news. Just one month later on February 6, 2013 we were hit with another nightmare. Matt was not feeling well and his local neurosurgeon saw him in the ER. An MRI was done to see what was going on, it showed changes he didn’t like and wanted his oncologist in Boston to see him. He allowed Matt to go home for the night with the promise he would go to Boston the next day. The next morning we made the journey back to Boston. Matt was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital and a biopsy showed that Matt’s cancer had returned. The PNET mutation he had in his previous tumor had grown on the other side of his brain. He underwent a stronger chemo which did not prove to be successful. Matt fought hard but on March 20, 2013 just 5 months to the day of being diagnosed Matt took his last breath in the hospital room where he spent the last month and a half of life with his wife and mother by his side.
This walk is to help to bring awareness to this disease, funding to help find a cure or better treatment and assistance to those who do not have the money to travel for specialized care. Matt made his contribution to the cause. His brain and spinal cord were donated to Massachusetts General Hospital to help with research.Oct 10 @ 12:00 pm
