Meet Mike

My family and I came to New Jersey in the 1980’s, following the election of Ronald Reagan, seeking the American Dream. I’m proud of my family. My mother and father are both tailors and made their own success. They taught me the value of hard work, which is how I put myself through school, grew a business, started a family, and became an American Citizen!

Ironically, as a bald man, some of the first businesses I built before selling them to my employees were hair salons! Since then, I’ve worked in Unilever in Englewood Cliffs for 15 years where I started my own supply chain solutions business. In 2011, I joined Feed the Children to combat child hunger in America, helping families and veterans across the country.

I served on the Montvale City Council, and in 2015 I was elected Mayor. I have a proven track record in reducing taxes, cutting unnecessary spending, and adding revenue. I’m business centric and understand economic development with over 25 years in corporate, government, and nonprofit organizations.

I have degrees in Biology and Sociology, and currently hold a Top-Secret Clearance to consult as a language analyst on human rights causes with refugees and child hunger. I currently live in Montvale with my wife Maryann, and my two sons, Ellie and Danny.

DELIVERING FOR NORTH JERSEY
We need a Congressman who will go down to Washington and deliver on the important issues we face here in New Jersey. Our current member has decided that partisan witch hunts and endless investigations are the way to go. I disagree. We need results, not more political rhetoric.

STOPPING SANTCUARY CITIES AND SECURING OUR BORDER
I support securing our borders and strong immigration policies. In 2017, I issued an executive order stating that we would not allow Montvale to become a sanctuary city. We need to protect our citizens and our law enforcement professionals by stopping the progressive open borders movement that has taken over New Jersey.

LOWERING TAXES ON SMALL BUSINESSES
I am a former small business owner and fiscal conservative. I know firsthand that more taxes don’t create more jobs. Americans create jobs. As Mayor, we’ve brought in over 4,000 new jobs by keeping our taxes low and working hands on with companies to attract more businesses to our town. We can do that in NJ-5.

FIGHTING FOR OUR MILITARY AND VETERANS
Our active duty service members and veterans deserve our support while they are overseas and when they return. We need to fully fund the Department of Defense and ensure our service members have the best technology to continue our fight against those who wish to bring us harm. We need a top to bottom change at the Veterans Administration, who has let too many veterans slip through the cracks and fail to provide adequate care to those who have given us so much.

BALANCING THE FEDERAL BUDGET
Our nation debt is over $21 trillion and continues to grow by the day. This debt burden will fall on our children and our grandchildren to pay and it is nothing more than generational theft. We owe to our taxpayers and our future generation to live within our means, just like our families are faced to do every day across New Jersey. I support a Balanced Budget Amendment and holding both parties accountable with the runaway spending.
