Former Middlesex County Republican Chairman Joe Leo has died, county Republicans told PolitickerNJ.
Leo, who took over the post in 2002 after a stint as Old Bridge Republican chairman, was a stalwart in county politics.
“Joe was a wonderful Republican and was involved for many years,” said Assemblyman Sam Thompson. “If Republicans were involved, Joe was there.”
A wake for Leo will be held Thursday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Michael Hegarty funeral home in Old Bridge. Funeral services will be held Friday at 10 a.m. at the Most Holy Redeemer church in Old Bridge.
