Former investment banker Frank Pallotta announced six endorsements from current and former New Milford Republican office holders Thursday.
“I am very proud of the support I have received from these distinguished former elected officials and Republican leaders, who have joined Councilwoman Kelly Greco-Langschultz in supporting my candidacy in New Milford,” Pallotta said. “Defeating Josh Gottheimer will be a team effort, and I am dedicated to building a dynamic and unified coalition to achieve victory in 2020.”
Thursday’s endorsements include former mayors James Battaglia, Roger Lane and Ann Subrizi, Municipal Republican Chairwoman Laure Schroeder and New Millford GOP Committee members Jeff Delvecchio and Malcom Sillars.
Pallotta was previously endorsed by New Milford Councilwoman Kelly Greco-Langschultz.
The former investment banker is one of three Republicans seeking the nod to take on Rep. Josh Gottheimer.
Also running are Montvale Mayor Mike Ghassali and former Cresskill Councilman John McCann, who mounted an unsuccessful bid against Gottheimer last year.
