With Primary 2016 in the books and Election 2017 right around the corner, Save Jerseyans, a new Super PAC dedicated to electing conservatives to local office in the Garden State is preparing to launch in a big way.
SolutionsNJ (solutionsnjpac.org) PAC’s inaugural event – a free networking social – is scheduled for June 16th.
The well-populated event committee for the June 16 kick-off event at Bell Works Complex in Holmdel (Monmouth County), located at 101 Crawfords Corner Road, includes Laura Ali, Tom Basta, Rob Bengivenga, Jerry Conaty, Lou Crescitelli, Christopher Dasti, M. Elaine Dasti, Mark DiPisa, Justin Flancbaum, Kate Gibbs, Ian M. Goldman, Jeanette Hoffman, Patrick Jeffrey, John Lanza, Gary LaSpisa, Frank Luna, Hank Lyon, Ryan Peters, Adam D. Pfeffer, Brent Pohlman, Don Povia, Steven Rich, Joe Sarno and Rob Zwigard.
Also featured on the host committee is South Jersey-based attorney Matt Rooney, the founder and editor-in-chief of Save Jersey.
Democrat-affiliated Super PACs have been credited with helping generate Democrat legislative gains in 2015. The founders of SolutionsNJ hope their efforts represents a concrete first step towards eventually leveling the playing field.
“Our organization is committed to electing common sense conservative candidates at the local level who will become the next generation of Republican leaders throughout the state,” said founders Chris Russell and Rick Rosenberg, Jr., both of whom are well-known New Jersey political consultants for Republican races, in a May statement announcing the PAC’s formation. “Our goal is growing the Republican Party for the long-term by supporting candidates that share our commitment to implementing policies that stress economic opportunity, individual freedom, educational empowerment and fiscal responsibility.”
As a Super PAC, SolutionsNJ is not associated with any candidate or candidate’s committee.
