Treasurer – Harold V. Kane, Monroe Twp.]

The stated goal of the candidates is to reverse the decline of the party

and to move it toward its rightful place as the premier political party in

Middlesex County.

Arthur Haney, a former CEO, was a Middlesex County freeholder and

a mayor of Old Bridge. He is currently the Republican chairperson in

Old Bridge Twp.

April Bengivenga is the NJGOP State Committeewoman from

Middlesex County and the Republican chairperson in South Plainfield.

Lynda Woods Cleary, a certified financial planner, is a member of the

South Brunswick Republican committee and is a past chairperson of

the South Brunswick Republican party.

Harold Kane is a committee person from Monroe Township and is the

program director of the Monroe Republican Club. He is a member of

the American Legion and is the president of the USS Manley (DD940)


The four candidates understand the need for new, motivated, and

resourceful leadership. The current leadership has its methods mired

in the past and this will stop. New ideas and methods will be adapted.

The statement that “we’ve always done it that way” will no longer be

operative. A new emphasis on assistance to the local municipal

organizations will be implemented.
