Hunterdon GOP taps Torpey to succeed Kuhl

By Max Pizarro | February 21st, 2014 - 12:37pm

Patrick Torpey and Rob Vollers have joined forces in pursuit of the leadership of the Hunterdon county GOP.

Owner of a public relations and government affairs firm, Torpey will run for chairman and entrepreneur Vollers will pursue the vice-chairmanship.

The pair has the support of retiring Hunterdon County GOP Chairman Henry Kuhl, who has served for 34 years in the county leadership position.

“I am very pleased that my efforts, and that of our search committee, have resulted in Pat and Rob coming together for the good of the party,” said Kuhl. “Unity will be a key factor in the continued success of our party here in Hunterdon County.”

WEST ORANGE - By acclamation, the Essex County Democratic Committee today picked Leroy Jones as chairman of the county organization.

The East Orange Democratic Committee chair, Jones is a former assemblyman and longtime party insider.

"This is going to be a unified party," said Jones, moments after accepting the chairmanship by voice vote. "I'm not a miracle worker, but we will do what we do best - elect good Democrats in the county and in the state."

Jones succeeds the late Chairman Phil Thigpen, who died last month at age 87.

NJ State Democratic Party Chairman, John Currie said, “Today as we honor the legacy of Philip Thigpen, I have confidence that Leroy Jones will carry the baton and help shape the next generation of leaders from this region."

Biography, as furnished by the Essex Democratic Committee

Jones joined 1868 Public Affairs after a career as a State Legislator, County Freeholder and municipal government administrator. He served four terms in the New Jersey General Assembly – including two years as Deputy Minority Leader – where he worked on the Appropriations, Regulatory Oversight, Solid Waste and Recycling, Financial Institutions and Local Government committees, as well as the Assembly Task Force on Foreign Banking and Task Force on Business Retention and Expansion. He also served on the State House Commission.

As a two-term Essex County Freeholder, Jones served as Chairman of the Budget Committee, on the Minority Affairs Committee and on the Essex County Planning Board.

He served as the City Administrator of East Orange for seven years where he was responsible for developing the city’s $100 million operating budget, served as the chief liaison between the Mayor and Council and managed the city’s ten department heads.

He also served in various positions at PSE&G in his professional career, including Business Development Manager, Director of Workforce Diversity and Public Affairs Manager. Prior to that he worked for AT&T Corp. as a Senior Accounting Specialist, Assistant Manager for Corporate Taxes and Internal Auditor.

Assembly Speaker Shelia Oliver (D-34) made Jones a Commissioner of the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority in 2012.

He is currently the East Orange Democratic Municipal Committee Chairman, a position to which he was elected in 2002 and has been re-elected to four times. Mr. Jones served as the Essex County Campaign Director for Governor Jon Corzine’s 2009 re-election campaign, and served as Co-Campaign Chairman for Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo in 2010.

Jones is a Trustee of the Essex County Democratic Committee, appointed by Essex County Democratic Chairman Philip Thigpen in 2002. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Seton Hall University, where he has taught Public Policy for the last six years.

A resident of East Orange, Jones holds a Master’s Degree in Business Management from the New Jersey Institute of Technology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Seton Hall University.

New Jersey Leadership Update
The Legislative re-organization votes have been completed today with some drama but little surprise. Assemblyman Vincent Prieto from Hudson County was elected the new Speaker of the General Assembly replacing Assemblywoman Seila Oliver of Essex County as expected. The transition of the Speakership is expected to be smooth and cordial. Lou Greenwald of Camden County remains the Majority Leader in the Assembly.

Senator Steve Sweeney of Gloucester County remains the Senate President and Senator Loretta Weinberg of Bergen County will remain the Senate Majority Leader.

The Assembly Republican Minority Leader will remain Jon Bramnick from Union County.

The drama of the day was the re-election of Senate Republican Minority Leader Tom Kean of Union County. He was re-elected as leader of the Republican Caucus by a vote of 10-6. He had waged an aggressive campaign to win 5 seats and control of the Senate but came up short, not picking up a seat. Senate President Sweeny's district was targeted and the relationship between Sweeney and Kean soured. Some felt the relationship was in such disrepair that a change in Leadership in the Caucus was warranted. It was reported that Senator Kevin O'Toole from Essex mounted a challenge with last minute support from the Governor but came up short.

Election Report
Governor Christie won re-election with over 60% of the vote in an historic outcome for a Republican Governor in New Jersey. As impressive was the Democrat Legislative efforts to keep a strong hold on both houses of the Legislature. There are no changes in the State Senate. The Democrats maintain control 24-16.

Currently in the Assembly the Republicans have picked up one seat in Legislative District 1. Incumbent Nelson Albano was defeated by Cumberland County Freeholder Sam Fiocchi.

Two other seats are still up for grabs with provisional ballots yet to be counted.

In District 2, Republican incumbent John Amodeo leads challenger Vincent Mazzeo by 379 votes.

In District 38 Democrat incumbent Tim Eustace trails challenger Joe Scarpa by 171 votes.

All other incumbents Assembly Members won.

All in all a status quo election as it relates to Trenton, with the size of the governor's victory certainly fuel to fire of speculation he will run for President.
