SOMERVILLE, NJ  - GOP gubernatorial hopeful Jack Ciattarelli, who has spent his entire life living and working in Somerset County and several decades representing the residents of central New Jersey towns, easily won the endorsement of the Somerset County Republican Organization at Tuesday night's county convention.

Ciattarelli, a state Assemblyman (R-16th) and resident of Hillsborough, won the endorsement with 170 votes; Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno received 16 votes and Hirsh Singh received 7 votes.

“We are thrilled to have our favorite son anchoring Somerset County’s Republican line in this year’s primary," said Somerset County GOP Chairman Al Gaburo. "Jack garnered a 170-16-7 vote margin and we couldn’t be prouder. A successful entreprenuer and Main Street business owner with a comprehensive five-point plan to fix our state, Jack is far and away our party’s best candidate for Governor.”

Ciattarelli served on the Borough Council in Raritan and as a Somerset County Freeholder before his election to the Assembly in 2012.

A licensed CPA and graduate of Seton Hall, Ciattarelli owns a medical publishing business on Main Street, Somerville.

"The faith, trust and confidence of the Somerset County Republican Organization is something for which I am forever grateful," Ciattarelli said. "I have every intention of providing them a new direction for our party and delivering them and all New Jerseyans the Governorship."
