During his recent campaign for the United States Senate, businessman Brian D. Goldberg encouraged growth of the Republican Party through outreach to traditionally underrepresented communities, including women, minorities and youth.

His plan to broaden the party base was focused on the positive message of “Empowerment, not Entitlement”. To advocate for party expansion and support candidates working to grow the Party, he founded The Empowerment PAC.

In addition to Goldberg, the Host Committee for the event includes Jose Arango, Chair of the NJ Republican Chairman’s Association; Senator Sam Thompson (R-12), Middlesex County Republican Chair; Al Barlas, Essex County Republican Chair; Donald Coughlan, NJ College Republicans Chair; Shaun Golden, Monmouth County Republican Chair; Vanessa LaFranco, NJ Federation of Republican Women Chair; Glenn Mortimer, Union County Republican Committee Chair; Michael Thulen, Jr., NJ Young Republican Federation Chair; and John Traier, Passaic County Republican Chair.

The Empowerment PAC is a federally registered, 527 political action committee focused on growing the Republican Party by spreading the message of “Empowerment, not Entitlement”. It was founded by Brian D. Goldberg, former U.S. Senate candidate and the owner of a small business in the decorative concrete industry.
