Eileen Della Volle, kicked off her bid for the Democratic nomination for State Assembly in the 10th district last night, starting with a listening tour in Brick.
Della Volle, the vice president of business development at KS Engineers, wants the chance to challenge four-term incumbent Greg McGuckin (R-Toms River) and whomever the Republican pick to succeed David Wolfe (R-Brick). Wolfe is retiring after 28 years as an assemblyman.
“Hard-working Ocean County residents need a legislator to advocate for them. I will fight in Trenton to garner our fair share of state funding for economic development, infrastructure and schools. Lack of adequate funding directly impacts the quality of life of Ocean County residents every day,” Della Volle said.
Della Volle spoke at the Democratic Club of Brick.
A former program manager for the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, Della Volle was a vice president at Brinkerhoff Environmental Services and serves on the board of the Southern New Jersey Development Council.
Former Point Pleasant Beach mayor Vincent Barrella is also seeking Democratic party support for an Assembly bid in the 10th.
