Giancarlo Ghione, a former executive director of the Bergen County Republicans, will be out of politics for at least a little while.
He’s accepted a job as a judicial clerk for New Jersey Superior Court Judge Joseph Turula, the presiding judge of the civil division in Hudson County. That post bars him from political activity once he starts in August.
He’s a recent graduate of New York Law School and a former New Jersey Young Republicans chairman.
“The late Paul Fader said to me, ‘Learn your craft,’ and encouraged me to stay out of politics during law school – which I obviously had difficulty doing,” Ghione said. “Although I didn’t do so then, I’m eager to start this next chapter while dedicating all my focus and energy into learning how to be a lawyer.”
