LoBiondo is an active leader in Morris County politics and will manage the day-to-day organizational activities in selected Morris County municipalities. She will also serve as a direct liaison between the organization and the area's political leaders.

“Lisa is committed to advancing a pro-growth agenda and has a proven track record of getting things done. In the current political landscape we need people who will work for change in New Jersey, not people who talk about change," says Chairman Caruso.

Arakelian, also a Montville resident, is a successful New Jersey business owner who has been engaged in local and regional politics.

"Karen's business experience and her unbelievable energy and commitment will help OEG promote its pro-economic message and to rally support for candidates that support policies that further economic growth in New Jersey," said Caruso.

LoBiondo said she was glad to be working with a new organization dedicated to advancing a pro-growth, low tax message.

“As a taxpayer and lifelong New Jersey resident I am concerned about the future of our state. I am very pleased to have this opportunity to be working with people who are truly committed to changing the disastrous course that state politicians have charted for us," said LoBiondo.

"Regardless of political affiliation we need more people to join the fight against the policies that are killing jobs and hurting taxpayers," added LoBiondo.

Arakelian said she is attracted to the dedication that Caruso and NJOEG are bringing to the political scene.

"As a business owner I love the passion that Joe Caruso and the OEG are bringing to the vital issues of taxes and economic growth," said Arakelian.

"I speak with many business owners who are very concerned about the state's regulatory and tax policies and their impact on New Jersey's ability to attract capital investment and create well-paying jobs," said Arakelian. "I am concerned about the state's economic future and its impact on our young people - many of whom are fleeing this state because of its bad economics," added Arakelian.

“Karen is a great addition to our team and I believe she will be a terrific ambassador for our cause," said Caruso.
