Morris County Freeholder Doug Cabana announced today that he has selected two veteran operatives to help run his District 25 Assembly campaign, both of whom worked earlier this year on state Sen. Joseph Pennacchio’s (R-Morris) unsuccessful U.S. Senate campaign.
George Dredden of Parsippany will serve as Cabana’s campaign manager, and Dan Gallic will serve as political consultant.
Dredden is the former executive director of the National Black Republican Council of NJ, and former vice-president of the Parsippany-Troy Hills Republican Club.
Gallic served as a senior advisor on Doug Forrester’s 2002 Senate campaign, and is former executive director of the Monmouth County Republican Party. He recently spear-headed the committee to draft formr Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan for governor.
Perhaps most significantly in terms of this race,Gallicis a veteran campaign manager of state Sen. Anthony Bucco (R-Morris). Bucco’s son, Tony, is Cabana’s chief competition for the Assembly seat left vacant by the retirement of Assemblyman Richard Merkt (R-Mendham).
