We are writing to request your support for our friend, former colleague and State Committeeman Senator John Bennett as the next Chair of the Monmouth County Republican Party.
Senator Bennett, as a member of the Monmouth County legislative delegation for over twenty-four years, has always put the interests of the people of Monmouth County first. Whether it was improving the environment, cutting taxes, bringing home State dollars or fighting for our seniors, John was in the forefront and got the job done.
Besides his excellent legislative record, Senator Bennett has time and time again demonstrated his leadership ability. For years he served as Chairman of the Assembly Environmental Committee and championed some of the most effective environmental legislation in the history of our State.
Upon being elected to the New Jersey Senate, Senator Bennett was soon selected by his legislative colleagues to become he Deputy Majority Leader and thereafter the Senate Majority Leader. In January 2002, Senator Bennett became the Senate President and was sworn in on the same day as Acting Governor of New Jersey.

He has also pledged that his law firm will not accept any County work or any County job during his tenure as County Chair to avoid any perceived conflict of interest.
Senator Bennett is a proven leader who unites factions and can maitain our party as a strong and inclusive one, his experience and leadership will serve our Coutny origanization well and we urge you to supoort him at the convention on Tuesday June 12 at 7:00 P.M. at the Colts Neck High School for Monmouth Republican Chair.
