We are about you

Chairman’s Welcome


Welcome to the Union County GOP’s website.

The Union County Republican Party is proud to have among its members NJ Senate Republican Jon Bramnick. They are joined by their colleague Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz and Michele Matsikoudis in Trenton. In addition thirteen of our towns are part of the 5th Congressal District.

On March 30th we held our annual convention to select our candidates. We have endorsed Tom Kean Jr. for election in the 7th Congressional District. Congressman Lance has done an outstanding job of representing our 13 of our 21 Union County towns. David Pinckney (10th district) and Darious Mayfield (12th district) have received our endorsements as well. The Convention nominated three extremely qualified candidates for Commissioner: Carmen Bucco of Kenilworth, Vincent Rettino of Westfield, and Carlos Santos of Mountainside.

If you are interested in getting involved with the Union County GOP please contact us.
