Morristown, New Jersey – The Morris County Republican Committee (MCRC) headquartered in Morristown, New Jersey is excited to announce that the former Chair of the NJ Election Law Enforcement Commission, Ron DeFilippis, has been affirmed as Finance Chair effective immediately. Ron’s political and fundraising experience is unmatched and it comes to MCRC at a critical time when the Morris County Democratic machine is attempting to turn Morris County, a longtime Republican stronghold, into a battleground area.
“I am very happy at Ron joining our team” said Patti Page, Chair of MCRC. “His successful experience and breadth of relationships through the country will make this a game changing year for all Morris County republicans”. Ron’s fundraising experience includes chairing campaign finance committees at the presidential, congressional and state levels. His political experience spans decades at both the local and national levels and his relationships with Republican elected officials past and present is too vast to mention.
“I am committed to making Morris County politics fun, successful and very lucrative so that candidates who choose to throw their hats in the ring, will have the financial backing necessary to win tough elections”, said DeFilippis.
In 2010, Governor Chris Christie appointed Ron DeFilippis to serve as commissioner on the Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC) where he served until July of 2017. Professionally Ron is a CPA in the states of New Jersey, New York and Florida. He has an MBA in Finance from Rutgers University Graduate School of Business and was also a former Federal Agent with the Internal Revenue Service. He is a senior partner in the CPA firm Mills and DeFilippis CPAs LLP which he founded in 1978, with offices in Randolph and Sparta. Ron has been married for 42 years to his wife Patti. They have two sons, Attorney Chris DeFilippis along with his wife Brie and Attorney Kevin DeFilippis along with his wife Rosemary. They have three grandchildren and a fourth due in January.
