Stafford Conservatives Republican Team
The Stafford Conservative Republican council candidates with Myhre are:
- Tom Steadman
- Dr. Anhony Quariglia
- Mike Pfancook
- George Williams
- Robert Henken-Siefken
- Paul Krier
The candidates are committed to the principles of limited government, trimming wasteful spending, and fighting for the taxpayer.
“Our team brings a broad range of experience to tackle new issues that Stafford faces with the onslaught of regulations raining down from the Murphy administration. We are listening to the concerns of residents from every neighborhood and a familiar theme rings through ‘hold the line on spending, treat us with respect, and do not allow us to become a sanctuary town,” said Greg Myhre.
"We are running to make Stafford Township a better place to raise a family and where individuals and businesses can thrive. The current mayor was first elected to the council in 1988 when our local population was less than half of what it is today. The town and our relationship with the state government has changed substantially since then. It is time for a new approach to deal with the reality of issues that we are facing today and in the future.”

Focus on Stafford Democratic Team:
Joe Mangino is the Democratic candidate for mayor. Mangino has been a member of the Stafford Board of Education and led a strong volunteer recovery effort after Hurricane Sandy. Mangino's council candidates are:
- Joanne Sitek
- Brian White
- Nicole Downs
- Kevin Teeple
- Denise Pobicki
- Chris Marzullo
Mangino has long been active in the Stafford community, according to the Focus on Stafford website, Focusonstafford.org
He was a co-founder of S.T.A.R.T. (Stafford Teachers and Residents Together), an organization of local residents who came together after Sandy to provide direct assistance to residents whose homes had been damaged.
Mangino is also the president of New Jersey Organizing Project, a citizen’s group formed to protect the rights of Sandy victims. For his work in the community, Mangino was named the Martin Truex Jr. Foundation Humanitarian of the Year in 2013.
Mangino said, “When Stafford residents have struggled, I’ve stepped up to make a difference, from gutting houses to helping write legislation to stop foreclosures on Sandy families. I didn’t expect to be involved in my community in this way, but after the primary, many people approached me and asked me to run for office. They wanted a candidate who would focus on Stafford, and has a record of getting things done.”
He continued, “I want to keep bringing residents together to build a better Stafford.”
