Pauls will appear along with Governor Christie and the party’s other endorsed candidates.on the official Republican line in the June Primary.
“I couldn’t be prouder to run on a ticket with Governor Chris Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, Frank Balles for Senate, John Amodeo and Chris Brown for Assembly, and John Bettis and Rich Dase for Freeholder.” said Pauls. “This is a critical and defining moment for our region and as such we must elect the very best leaders at every level of government.”
Since wrapping up the party’s nomination, Pauls has continued to secure endorsements from numerous Atlantic County elected officials including Freeholder Chairman Frank Formica.
“Will Pauls worked hard to earn our party’s nomination in a fair and open convention process,” said Formica. “He will work just as hard for Atlantic County, continuing the fiscally conservative policies that have made our county government the best run in the State of New Jersey. I’m looking forward to sitting next to Will Pauls on our Board because he won’t be afraid to take on the tough issues we face as a region.”
In addition to serving on the Atlantic County Republican Committee, Pauls is the current President of the South Jersey Building Trades Council and the Ironworkers Local 350. He is also a member of the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, Atlantic County Planning Board, Regional Development Authority of Atlantic County, and the Atlantic County Community Development Corporation.
“We’ve all watched South Jersey struggle these last few years and our region continues to face some of the highest unemployment in New Jersey,” said Pauls. “We’re fighting for the American Dream so our children and grandchildren can have the same opportunities we had. Atlantic County can absolutely still offer that. I believe in our region, its people, and its promise for the future.”
