Gravino serving as treasurer of former Randolph Township mayor’s CD 3 exploratory committee

Gov. Chris Christie’s two-time campaign treasurer is set to serve as the treasurer of former Randolph Township Mayor Tom MacArthur’s CD 3 exploratory committee.

Ron Gravino, who served as Christie’s treasurer for his 2008 and 2013 gubernatorial runs, is taking the reins as treasurer of MacArthur’s new exploratory committee, the former mayor confirmed.

“I’m thrilled to have Ron’s help and support,” MacArthur said. “Nobody knows election law and could be more helpful at this stage.”

MacArthur, a Republican, stepped down as mayor Wednesday during Randolph Township’s reorganization ceremony. He plans to resign from the council in the coming days to focus his attention on a CD 3 run to fill the seat soon to be vacated by U.S. Rep. Jon Runyan (R-3).

Gravino also serves as Runyan’s treasurer.

MacArthur is also in the process of moving to a new home in Toms River. He announced in November his plans to pursue a CD 3 run.

State Assemblyman David Wolfe (R-10) and Berkeley Township Council President James Byrnes are also considering a run for the position.
