Born and raised in Roselle Park, Joe has been the Mayor of his hometown since 2018. In his pledge to Rebuild Roselle Park, Joe has reigned in wasteful spending, overhauled local infrastructure, and injected life into his hometown. Joe has Roselle Park on the right track by getting the basics right, investing in infrastructure, being fiscally responsible, and supporting his local schools – he’s running to get us back to those fundamentals in New Jersey.

A graduate of Roselle Park High school, Joe then went on to complete his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Seton Hall University. In his professional career, Joe works in venture capital to help seed and grow early stage start-ups.

TAXES


We need to be smarter about how we spend your tax dollars, where we spend those tax dollars, and how our taxes impact you. To stay competitive in a global economy, we need to cut the waste in Trenton’s spending and make the hard decisions to reign in property taxes that are stifling home values and driving our families and friends out of the state to retire.

NEW JOBS


At one time, Menlo Park was the Silicon Valley of the U.S., now our talent is being outsourced to CA, TX, and other areas on the rise. Our state ranks first in education, but last in retention of college graduates. We need to double down on investing in retaining and attracting firms that are on the cutting edge of science and technology - this starts with embracing new technologies, helping our small businesses grow, and making sure our state is as business friendly as it can be. I work to help build companies - I know what it takes to create jobs here in NJ.

INFRASTRUCTURE


One stop ride to NYC, anything else is unacceptable. Our connections to both New York City and Philadelphia help drive our local economy. Our riders deserve a fast, clean, and reliable way to get to work, and home at night. For those of us who drive to work - our roads are an embarrassment. We need Trenton to step up and increase municipal support to fix the damn potholes in this state.

TAKING ON CORRUPTION


Too often the folks representing us in Trenton aren’t looking out for the average voter - they’re looking out to increase their own profile. We all pay for the cost of insider politics. I’m not a lifelong politician, I don’t have a career in politics, and I hate seeing lifelong politicians waste taxpayer time, and money - I’ll fight to clean the house at the state level - because I’m not part of the machine.
