RIVER VALE, NJ ... Today, Senator Holly Schepisi endorsed Dr. John Azzariti and Jonathan Kurpis in the Republican Primary for State Assembly in Legislative District 39.


"The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for all of our families -- with loved ones lost, businesses closed, and our children suffering. Sadly, these challenges have been made worse by Governor Murphy's disastrous executive orders and restrictions," said Senator Holly Schepisi. "With so much at stake this November, it's critical that we have a unified Republican ticket that will put New Jersey families first, advocate for Republican values, and restore common sense in Trenton."


"Having known Dr. John Azzariti and Jonathan Kurpis for many years, I believe they have the vision and experience we need to win in November and move our state in the right direction," declared Schepisi. "It's why I'm proud to endorse their candidacies for the State Assembly and encourage my fellow Republicans to support them in the June 8th Republican Primary."


In accepting the endorsement, Dr. John Azzariti and Jonathan Kurpis said, "We are grateful for Senator Schepisi's endorsement and excited by the prospects of working with her to fix our broken state. As our representative in Trenton, Senator Schepisi is the only one who has been standing up to Governor Murphy's abuse of power and fighting to reopen our businesses and schools. As members of the State Assembly, we will stand shoulder to shoulder with Senator Schepisi to put New Jersey families first, ensure the health and safety of our residents, and get our economy moving again."
