The NJGOP/Christie for President political establishment is shifting personnel at the end of July, Save Jerseyans, another sign that the Governor’s inner circle led by Bill Palatucci remains fully in control of the state party apparatus.
On Monday, it was confirmed that State Committee Deputy Executive Director Pete Sheridan is assuming the role of Executive Director; he’ll replace Executive Director Amanda DePalma who is joining the presidential campaign.
“Amanda DePalma has dedicated her entire career to building our state party and helping Republicans at every level of government succeed in their endeavors,” said Chairman Sam Raia in a statement. “Her leadership has enabled us to win and retain control of the Governor’s seat as well as grow the ranks of Republican elected officials in Congress, county government and local offices. We congratulate her on her new role and thank her for her service to our party.”
Atlantic County Republican Chairman Keith Davis of the Egg Harbor-based Nehmad, Perillo & Davis is also stepping into a new role: Chief Counsel.
The Christie organization’s veteran talent is largely deployed or dispersed but a $2,500-per head Assembly GOP fundraiser starring Todd Christie, the governor’s brother, is scheduled for August 11th at Baltusrol Golf Course in Springfield.
