WOODBRIDGE, NJ. New Jersey citizens plan to gather next month at an event to promote a wide range of issues with the ultimate goal of boosting voter turnout.

The “Citizens 1st Rally”, as it has been dubbed, is being hosted by Anthony Gallo, Middlesex County Sheriff candidate. Frank G. Pelzman Park in Avenel, which is part of Woodbridge Township in Middlesex County, will be the site of the rally on October 19 at 3:00 pm.

According to the event’s planners, several issues including sanctuary policies, high taxes, and gun rights are set to be discussed to a crowd of potential voters anticipated to be in the hundreds.

Keynoting the free event will be Steven L. Rogers, president of America Winning Coalition and 2017 Republican hopeful for NJ Governor. Several candidates for statewide offices are expected to be in attendance, joining citizens from all over the state.

Never too early to garner some support, 2020 Senate hopeful Hirsh Singh is set to be present. Also, Middlesex County Freeholder candidates, Edna Cox-Rivers, Gregg Rubenstein, and Tom Coghan will visit in order to reach potential voters in the county.

One group hoping for continued success at the event is the Recall Phil Murphy Team, a grassroots movement that is quickly gaining momentum across New Jersey. Also slated to speak are Anthony Colandro, the host of the popular Gun For Hire Radio and National Rifle Association board director, as well as Gary Brenner, from the Convention of States organization.

Finally, members from the South Asian Republican Coalition (SARC), located nearby in Edison, will make an appearance. The hosts of this rally are hopeful a wide range of different citizens will come, as this bipartisan affair offers something for somebody of any background to enjoy.

Logistically, Mr. Gallo is doing all he can as to not overwhelm Pelzman Park, named after the late mayor of Woodbridge. Gallo shares, “I really am hoping for a big crowd and it’s looking more and more like we’re going to get it. The Woodbridge Parks Department and city clerk have known well in advance about the rally. I’m getting groups and people saying they want to come and many want to speak. I love it because there will be something that attracts everybody to the event. It’s our civic duty to vote and this rally encourages just that.”

Citizens 1st Rally will take place on October 19 at 3PM, at Frank G. Pelzman Park in Avenel. For more information about some of the organizations and candidates attending the event, see the links below.
