Burlington GOP Screening Committee backs MacArthur for CD3 seat

Burlington County Regular Republican Screening Committee Chairman Steve Solomon this evening chimed the Ocean County GOP Screening Committee’s weekend endorsement of former Randolph Mayor Tom MacArthur in the 3rd Congressional District.

“Our Screening Committee, as well as our Republican Municipal Chairs, are proud to enthusiastically endorse Tom MacArthur for Congress in the Third District and will forward our recommendation to the full County Committee for their consideration,” said Solomon, who is also the Moorestown GOP Municipal Chairman. 

“Not only were we deeply impressed by Tom’s experience of helping to create jobs and prosperity for his employees and their families, but also by his vision for the future of our party and our nation,” added Solomon.  “Tom’s compelling story as a self-made success and someone who has dedicated his life to giving back to those in need made him stand out among the candidates we interviewed.  We believe he will make an excellent Congressman for the people of Burlington County and the people of the Third District.”

A humbled MacArthur issued a statement. 

“I’m honored to receive support from both the Burlington County Republican Screening Committee, and the Republican Municipal Chairs,” said MacArthur.  “I am confident that my message of economic growth and letting hardworking people keep more of what they earn, delivering smaller government that still gives a hand up to those in need, and creating opportunity for all will resonate with Republicans, Independents and Democrats this fall who want to move our country in a more positive, productive direction.”
