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.
On November 4, 2020, prisons in the State of New Jersey started releasing over two thousand (2,000) inmates nearing the end of their sentences as part of New Jersey’s effort to address coronavirus transmissions in crowded prison facilities. The early release of eligible prisoners is in line with Senate Bill No. 2519 (S2519) which was enacted and signed into law on October 19, 2020.

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.
Over 700 healthcare workers in Monmouth County received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine during the holiday break as public health officials scrambled to ramp up their infrastructure to widely administer the shots as they become available.
The race for the Republican nomination for Governor of New Jersey kicked off in December with dueling videos, social media posts, press releases and endorsements announced by the campaigns for Jack Ciatarelli and Doug Steinhardt.
Ciattarelli won the month and is a superior position going into the pre-nominating conventions, pre-primary season of January, February and March.
