Samantha DeAlmeida will run for Assembly

Former Assembly Republican staffer wants to succeed Dave Wolfe

Former Assembly Republican staffer Samantha DeAlmeida will seek party support for the open 10th district State Assembly seat when the Ocean Republican organization meets to screen candidates in the next few weeks.

The 29-year-old Brick resident wants to succeed David Wolfe (R-Brick), who is retiring after 28 years in the legislature.

“Dave Wolfe is the gold standard of elected officials and I want to represent the 10th district in the same way,” DeAlmeida said.

The race to succeed Wolfe has already attracted three candidates: Brick Republican Club president John Catalano, former Brick councilwoman Ruthanne Scaturro, Point Pleasant Beach mayor Stephen Reid, and former D’Arcy Rohan Green.

After working as a policy analyst for Assembly Republicans, she joined the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Center as deputy director of government relations and policy.

DeAlmeida says her top priority as a legislator would be fair school funding, continued Sandy relief, affordable health care, and lower property taxes.
