The GOP Assembly race in the 23rd District continues, as Warren County Freeholder John DiMaio today secured the endorsement of three-term Warren County Sheriff Sal Simonetti.
“I have always known John to be a steward of the taxpayers monies and in Trenton, I have 100% confidence that he will be just as vigilant in his work to reduce the size of government while returning more money to the local entities,” Simonetti said in a statement.
“As a law enforcement officer, I recognize the need for dedicated and ethical elected officials who truly understand what it means to be a public servant,” the sheriff added. “In John, the residents of the 23rd District can be assured they are getting a man of character, integrity and who possesses the acumen necessary to be a leader in the State Legislature.”
DiMaio is competing for the support of the joint Warren and Hunterdon County GOP Committee in a contest with Hunterdon County Freeholder Matt Holt and Hunterdon County Freeholder Erik Peterson.
A special convention is scheduled for Feb. 21st.
