SOMERVILLE, NJ – State Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli (R-16th) who is seeking the GOP nomination to run for governor has released an extensive list of key Republican leaders that span six counties who have endorsed his candidacy for Governor.

The list includes all five members of the Hillsborough Township Committee - Mayor Carl Suraci; Deputy Mayor Gloria McCauley; Committeeman Frank DelCore; Committeeman Doug Tomson and Committeeman Greg Burchette. All are Republicans.

"New Jersey Republicans want an entirely new direction for our state and our party.  As an MBA/CPA, a successful entrepreneur and a Main Street business owner with a record of creating jobs, my campaign is about results, not rhetoric," said Ciattarelli, a Hillsborough resident.  "That positive and dynamic message is resonating loud and clear across the state, which is why our support continues to grow.
