HOLMDEL, NJ - As a Councilman, Freeholder and Assemblyman. Jack Ciattarelli is well familiar with running government. Now, after nearly succeeding in a prior run for Governor, he’s running again. The husband and father of four, with a background as a businessman and CPA, is full steam ahead.

While it is expected that he may soon have company from others running for the spot, today he runs alone on the Republican side. It's generally considered that Governor Murphy, who polls quote high during the ongoing pandemic, will run for re-election.

Crisscrossing the state, Ciattarelli is sharing his views of what he would do should he be elected New Jersey Governor. On Wednesday the 21st, he will be in Hazlet at the local Republican Organization meeting. The location is rhe Gramercy at Lakeside Manor- 410 Route 36, Hazlet - Time- 7:00 PM
 "We will wear masks and practice social distancing.
Cash bar and light refreshments will be available." Wrote the club in a news release."We have also invited Chairman Shaun Golden, and our County and Local Candidates to join us.  Hope to see you Wednesday."
