Bergen County Clerk Kathleen Donovan and former Assemblywoman Lisa Randall have endorsed attorney Robert Ortiz for Bergen County GOP Chairman.
Ortiz, a 35-year-old Republican fundraiser from Ridgewood, is running in a special election to succeed Guy Talarico, who resigned the day after the primary.
“We must be able to move forward with optimism for the
future and a vision to revitalize and strengthen the Bergen County Republican Organization with new initiatives for fundraising, candidate recruitment, inclusion, and building Party unity,” Donovan and Randall wrote in a letter to County Committee members.
Ortiz has already won the backing of Assemblymen Kevin O’Toole and David Russo, and former Bergen County Executive Pat Schuber.
