About me

I am a lifetime New Jersey resident, living in Passaic County for 39 years.  

I went to college at Fairleigh Dickinson University and attended the University of Notre Dame Intensive Professional Development Program.

I am the proud father of two children, who live in Passaic County with my four grandchildren.

I had the privilege to be married to my wonderful wife, who I lost too soon to ovarian cancer. 

I started my own business in Passaic County in 1982 and I have been pursuing business, leadership and civic service  in the county ever since.  

My proudest accomplishments are my beautiful family and my service to public interests and the needy, like at Eva's Kitchen, Paterson.  I am a passionate fundraiser for many causes including St. Jude's Children's Hospital, the American Heart Association, the Veterans Association, Lupus Foundation  and the Breast Cancer Awareness association.  I am an advocate for women's health and wellness.   I have served in the U.S. Army Reserve and I am dedicated to supporting our veterans.

I would be honored to continue my civic service representing you as a Passaic County Freeholder.  

my top issues


We all know that these are challenging times.  Why is it that Passaic County has the highest tax rate in the area?  Passaic County is a great place to live. But is it too expensive to live here?  Are residents moving to other counties?  

Let's get Passaic County going. We need to do more with less. We have to give our Passaic County residents a break.

I plan to look at our budget and focus on exactly what we are spending. It isn't enough to keep a flat budget.  We need to help you make ends meet.    

Together we can  focus on what matters most:  keeping our neighborhoods safe-free from drugs; electing leaders who despise corruption; promoting education in the community college and vocational school; supporting the men and women in our Sheriff's department; maintaining our parks; improving our roads; helping our seniors and the needy.            

As a businessman running my own business from start-up to success, I had to make sound decisions about budget, employment, spending and more. You can count on me to do the same for Passaic County! 

Vote for me for Passaic County Freeholder~!
