“This was the best political event Joe D has ever had,” said Divincenzo Chief of Staff and event Organizer Philip Alagia.  “We had a huge crowd, with supporters from all over the State attending, the Infernos Band had people dancing, and McLoones and the setup made the evening perfect.”

Among those in attendance were Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), U.S. Rep. Donald Payne (D-10), and Speaker of the Assembly Sheila Oliver (D-34). DiVincenzo’s mentor, Steve Adubato, veteran political leader of the North Ward, and iconic figure in New Jersey politics called it “the best political event” he ever attended. 

Moreover, no one at McLoones appeared to have qualms about parting with thier money to DiVincenzo, who’s weathered ELEC criticism in the past about using campaign funds for luxurious trips to Puerto Rico and dining excursions.
