During my studies for a master in administrative science I was fortunate to have Christopher Christie, our present governor and Mr. Pat Schuber our former Bergen County Executive, as my professors, they motivated me to run for Governor in 2005.
As an independent in 2005 we were able to capture 4% of total New Jersey vote (including 15,000 votes in Passaic and 10,000 in Bergen County).

In 2008 I was a Paterson Republican Coordinator for John McCain for President.

In 2009 I was a Paterson Republican Coordinator for Christopher Christie for NJ Governor.

Happily married with seven children, my wife Mina and my children are the inspiration and happiness in my life.
