Jack M. Ciattarelli, frontrunner candidate for the GOP selection to oppose Governor Murphy in November, will be the principal speaker at the Feb. 5 meeting of the Atlantic Highlands Republican Club.
“I’ve known Jack for some time, and I’m delighted to be able to have him address our group,” said Councilman Brian Boms, the local GOP Chairman. “He served in the NJ General Assembly in the 16th district for 17 years and is a forward thinking man with a lot of great ideas and vision for success.”
Ciattarelli, who lives in Hillsborough, was raised in Raritan Township where he also served on the Borough Council for five years, serving that time as council president. He served on the Somerset Board of Freeholders for four years until 2011 when he resigned to accept the position of Assemblyman.
A graduate of Seton Hall University with a degree in accounting, he also earned his maser’s degree in finance at the same university. While in the Assembly, he served on the financial institutions and insurance, and the Regulated Professions committees as well as Assistant Republican Whip. Monmouth County’s Kim Guadagno defeated him in his run for Governor in 2017.
In his private life, Ciattarelli is owner and publisher of Galen Publishing, L.L.C., a medical publishing company. He was co-founder of several medical journal publishing companies and is an adjunct professor at Seton Hall. Married, and the father of four children, Ciattarelli coaches children’s sports and is manager for the Hillsborough Township Recreation Department.
