Barbara Lanuto, Vice Chairwoman of the Ocean County Republican Organization, endorsed Jack Ciattarelli for the Republican nomination for Governor of New Jersey.
“Jack Ciattarelli is far and away our best choice to take on and defeat Phil Murphy in November, and I urge all Ocean County Republicans –and Republicans around our state–to get behind his candidacy,” said Lanuto who is also Deputy County Clerk and served as Acting Chairwoman of the Party following the resignation of George Gilmore in 2019.
New jersey Republicans are beginning to rally around Jack Ciattarelli, the successful small businessman who retired early after selling his companies to dedicate himself to public service, as the Party standard bearer and candidate for Governor against Phil Murphy this year.
Jack Ciattarelli, the front runner for the Republican nomination to take on Governor Phil Murphy in November, issued the following statement to MMM on the news of former NJ GOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt’s withdrawal as a candidate for governor:

Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Steinhardt today likened his principal competitor for the GOP nomination, Jack Ciattarelli, to Hunter Biden, because Ciattarelli had investments in Chinese companies in 2016.
Municipal reorganizations are a big deal for New Jersey elected officials, especially during a gubernatorial election year. Newly elected and reelected mayors, council and committee members, and fire chiefs are celebrated and their families are thanked by their communities for their sacrifice. The new officials make optimistic speeches about the future of the communities and big shots from state and county government show up to issue the Oaths of Office and pose for pictures.
In 2009 former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie, not yet a declared candidate for Governor, was all over New Jersey swearing in mayors and council members on January 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. His first stop was Middletown where he issued the Oath of Office to newly elected Committeeman Tony Fiore as Mayor Gerry Scharfenberger looked on.
