Candidate Statement From Middlesex County Freeholder Incumbent Charlie Tomaro to Edison


Candidate statement submitted by Alise Roderer, Communications Director for Barrett and Tomaro for Freeholder, on Freeholder Tomaro’s behalf.

A full first-term Freeholder, former Edison Township Council President, Charlie Tomaro is running to represent working families on the Middlesex County Freeholder Board.  A salesman by trade, Freeholder Tomaro works to make Edison and Middlesex County a better place in his free time – volunteering with organizations like Hands of Hope Community Food Pantry and the Campaign to Save Edison Memorial Tower.

Charlie has spent his career in public service working to preserve and improve open space and public facilities, and if reelected, he will continue to do just that.  In the last three years alone, he has helped preserve more than 800 acres of open space and farmland, expanded county parks and enhanced the county’s Youth Conservation Corps to keep local kids engaged and off the streets.

When reelected, he will continue to fight for safer Middlesex County streets by continuing efforts to bring innovative programs to the county such as a gun buyback programs, which took 300 guns off the streets during its inaugural year, including dangerous assault-style weapons like the ones used in the Newtown school shooting. 

Charlie Tomaro has delivered real results for our families, our children and Middlesex County.
