What Matters to You

Over the years, I have been involved in our party and helped many of our GOP candidates and elected officials from across the district with their campaigns. It would be an honor to represent you and our district in Trenton. As your Assemblyman, I would work closely with our local and county leaders to advocate for the priorities and solutions needed in our towns.

The two current Assembly members have been silent this past year when we needed their representation the most! Our area has been one of the hardest hit economies in the country. The cumulative impact of our high unemployment levels has resulted in a ripple effect with people unable to pay their mortgage or rent and engaging in a juggling act to keep up with the rest of their bills. The virus has been bad, yet state government’s response has made things even worse for us. We are not Hudson or Essex County, yet the blanket restrictions treat Atlantic County the same as those other areas of the state, which has been devastating for our area. Our district relies heavily on a hospitality industry that cannot just go virtual and work from home. We need to have a regional approach to the virus that is unique to us and our area, not the current one-size-fits-all-approach dictated by executive decree from Governor Murphy and supported by our current Assembly members.

With your support, our area can again have a voice in the State Assembly to advocate on behalf of you and your family as well as someone to stand up to executive overreach. I thank you for considering me as your candidate in the Second Legislative District and please feel free to call or email me with any thoughts or questions you may have.
