If Matranga’s name sounds familiar, this is because his father is Anthony Matranga—mayor of Hitchcock and grandson to Tony Matranga former Commissioner and First Marshall of Hitchcock. When I spoke to him, Matranga told me he was born in Texas City and grew up in La Marque and Hitchcock. “My parents are divorced, so I split my time between the two cities,” he told me. After graduating from La Marque High School in 1995, Matranga told me he decided he did not want to go to college. “I wanted to immediately go out and get a job, so my father had a master plan.”
