After reviewing the recent vote count, I am confident in declaring victory today and want to thank the citizens of Morris County for putting their faith in me. Only in America can someone go from an immigrant who pumped gas to make ends meet 24 years ago to an elected official representing nearly a half million people today. I’m honored and humbled and look forward to making Morris County an even better place to live over the next three years.”
