Vincent Solomeno campaigning for Senate (13th District)

MIDDLETOWN – The New Jersey Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) has endorsed Vincent Solomeno in his race to represent Monmouth County’s Thirteenth Legislative District in the New Jersey State Senate.

“As State Senator, I will stand with those who dedicate their lives to keeping our communities safe,” said Solomeno, a thirty-six year old U.S. Army Veteran. “When I was deployed overseas, I saw firsthand the selfless service and integrity Americans bring to the fight. That belief in mission first, people always is what’s sorely lacking in public service today.”

NJ FOP President Robert W. Fox explained that the state’s second largest police union selected a bipartisan slate of candidates after careful review. He said, “Prior to my Board meeting, thirteen members of my Legislative Committee worked tirelessly reviewing all the candidates and their responses to our questionnaires. The full Board of Directors met Tuesday, September 14 and voted unanimously to endorse the following candidates for the New Jersey State Senate and State Assembly.”

“I am committed to improving the working conditions of law enforcement officers and in doing so the security of the people they serve,” added Solomeno, one of only two Senate challengers endorsed statewide.

If elected, Solomeno – who still serves in the Army National Guard – intends to eliminate annual property tax assessments, fight for full funding for Monmouth County public schools, and support small businesses in the wake of COVID-19.
