Speakers included Donna Simon, Republican Assembly candidate running with Somerset County Freeholder Mark Caliguire in Legislative District 16.

Quinn invited Sheila Montague, a candidate for at-large representation on the Newark Public School Advisory Board to discuss the state of education in New Jersey.  “As a Democrat, I'm supporting Robert because he is willing to put everything on the line for our children”, said Montague who faces an election April 25.  

Local committees were well represented with George Callan, Chairman of North Brunswick Republicans as a speaker and Rich Revolinsky, Chairman of Milltown Republicans acting as host of the program.

He will be coordinating with Nadine Wilkins, the other candidate for Assembly and Daryl Kipnis who is the candidate for the Senate. 

All are residents of Franklin Township.

Mr. Quinn closed the program with “What a great way to kick off my campaign, I'm ready to fight for the people of New Jersey, for the children and for you.”
