To our town, Thank You!




Those two words don’t really seem to be a sufficient acknowledgment for the support you have given us throughout this Primary.  This Primary victory would not have been possible without the help of so many people; it was a community wide effort.  An effort that we did not take for granted.  From the voters who took time out of their day to fill out mail-in ballots or vote in person, to the people who had displayed our signs , we say, Thank You!  From the people who attended our meet-and-greets, to the people that made calls and walked door to door on our behalf, we say, Thank You!  To the people whose days and evenings we interrupted with phone calls, we say Thank You! for taking the time to talk to us.

 This is just the beginning. There remains much work to be done between now and November 5th. To those of you that voted for us, our job over the next 5 months is to affirm your decision in supporting us.  If you are not already a supporter, our job is to convince you that we are the two best qualified candidates to serve New Providence on Borough Council.  We as a community share a sense of pride in New Providence. The common purpose that we share is a sincere desire to make New Providence a better place for us and our children to live. This is our pledge to you as we move towards the general election.  We promise you that we will continue to work hard to earn your trust and your vote.

To all our family, friends, volunteers, supporters and our trusted advisor Dominick  Fiorilli, we say in heartfelt appreciation, THANK YOU!



A Message of Thanks and a Call for Unity

Thank you so much for all of your love and support. I have never felt more connected to our community than I do right now. This campaign has been a wonderful journey. We made new friends, shared some really great ideas, and came together for the betterment of our community. I feel so blessed for this opportunity, and am so honored by the support and encouragement I received during the campaign, and, the warm reception we received last night. Thank you!

We congratulate my running mate, Michele Matsikoudis, and Councilman Rob Muñoz. Please join me now in coming together and working together, combing forces and sharing our vision for New Providence as one united party. We are neighbors and friends who all want the best for our community. Together we will accomplish great things for New Providence. Thank you for your support and trust in me.

I support John Everitt for Borough Council

Dear Resident,

     I am honored and excited to support John Everitt as a candidate for the New Providence Borough Council. I feel that New Providence is extremely fortunate to have a person of such high-quality seeking election in our town. John possesses all the personal characteristics and innate abilities that those that seek public office should possess…. but unfortunately, in today’s time, many do not!


     John has demonstrated a keen sense of business acuity which can be seen in his two successful local businesses. I am sure that he will bring this business acumen to our Council and use it to help guide sound business and financial practices in all town affairs. 

     What you see with John is what you will get! He will not say one thing and then do another. He is one of the most integrable and straightforward people that you will meet. If he gives you his word, it is “as good as gold”. I watched John transform and vastly improve the NP Lions communications systems. He personally developed and maintains our entire website voluntarily. During John’s recent tenure as President, I personally worked with John, on our Fundraising Committee increasing our fundraising results by 80% over two years.

     It should also be noted, that John is not one to pontificate from on high and then shy away from the work that is necessary to back the idea. John can certainly think creatively and “outside of the box”, but once an idea is embraced, he is not afraid to apply his own “blood, sweat, and tears” to make it happen. He is a man of creative ideas and he in turn works hard to make those ideas reach fruition. 

     We in town, are at a series of crossroads as to what the future holds for all of us. The decisions that our Borough Council will make are more important than ever and will impact upon future generations. It is now of the utmost importance that the “right individuals” are elected to serve our town. Please join me in making the “right” decision by supporting John Everitt for New Providence Borough Council. Be sure to cast your vote for John Everitt for Borough Council on June 4th.

Former New Providence Councilman Armand Galluccio Supports John Everitt for New Providence Borough Council

It is my distinct honor and pleasure to support John Everitt for New Providence Borough Council. As a former councilman having served 9 years, I can fully attest to the qualifications and experience that would best serve the people of New Providence.

John is a successful businessman in New Providence. He owns two local businesses here in New Providence and also owns commercial real estate in town. His business and technical expertise would add an invaluable and unique perspective not currently represented on council. In addition to his outstanding resume and qualifications, John is a proven leader. He has served as President of the New Providence Lions Club, where I am an active member serving under his leadership. John has also served as President of the Heritage Village Home Owners Association, and Vice Chair of the New Providence Republican Committee. John has a genuine commitment to community service. John is engaged and doesn’t just sign up for stuff. He is the one to roll up his sleeves and get things done. Above all of this, and more importantly, John has genuine integrity and “Honesty”. His word is his bond. He is not deceptive, or a “behind closed doors” kind of guy. John is open, honest, a straight shooter, direct and transparent. You can count on him to do his homework, due diligence, be decisive and inclusive. John behaves responsibly in all that he says and does. John always represents himself and the offices he holds with dignity, which I truly respect him for.

Please join me in supporting John Everitt for New Providence Borough Council. Please vote for John Everitt this June 4th in the Republican Primary.

In your service,

Former Councilman Armand Galluccio

Why I support Michele Matsikoudis for Borough Council

Michele Matsikoudis has my vote for New Providence Borough Council.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Michele for the past 10 years.  When we met, she was the PTA President, running events and donating her time to raise much needed funds at Salt Brook School.  

After Salt Brook, Michele became the PTA President at NP Middle School and a volunteer with the NP Education Foundation, where she used her years of business experience to create programs, generate funding, and examine the needs of our school’s students and families.  She also volunteered with the New Providence Community Activities Board, the Board of Health and the Economic Development Committee where she is still actively volunteering to this day.

In addition to volunteering, Michele somehow managed to have a career and raise three great kids. She is the type of person who is happy to jump in and help whenever you need her.  She is intuitive, hard-working, and considerate.  

As members of the New Providence community, we should participate in our town by volunteering in our schools, town committees or local non-profits.  Michele is an extraordinary example of a resident who has given back and helped shape New Providence.

I am proud to have worked with Michele on many volunteer opportunities over the last decade, and I know she will immediately add value on Borough Council.  Please join me in supporting Michele Matsikoudis for Borough Council in the upcoming election.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Candidates for New Providence Borough Council, John Everitt and Michele Matsikoudis, Receive Endorsement of the Union County Republican Committee (UCGOP)

The New Providence Republican Committee (NPRC) proudly announce the endorsement of the Union County Republican Committee (UCGOP) for candidates John Everitt and Michele Matsikoudis to the New Providence Borough Council.

The NPRC is the only legal and official Republican Committee for the Borough of New Providence in accordance with state statute and New Jersey State Law. NPRC is a Union County GOP Municipal Republican Organization comprised of elected committee members and associates. The NPRC has 22 elected Republican Committee Members: 1 male and 1 female from each of New Providence's 11 voting districts. Each Committee Member is elected for a 2-year term on the republican primary ballot within their residing voting district in even years, or by appointment to fill a vacancy with majority committee consent. 

The NPRC also has associate members who are nominated and voted onto the NPRC by a majority of the committee for a one-year term at the annual re-organizational meeting held immediately after the primary according to state statute or can be voted in as needed any time during the year mid-term. The NPRC also has a Young Republican Group (NPYRs).

The NPRC has a responsibility and a process to put forth the best possible candidates that are in our community's best interest, and most exemplify our party’s mission, goals, values, and standards. Anyone seeking our endorsement is given equal, ample, and fair opportunity to present to the committee their resume, service record, experience, and a presentation through a very thorough screening process. Candidates endorsed are not chosen arbitrarily or solely because they may have or currently serve, although service to our community is very much weighed and considered in the process. We are entrusted by our party and by our community to ensure accountability and that we are putting forth the best possible candidates to represent the Borough of New Providence. 


Many very qualified and outstanding candidates screen before our committee and seek our endorsement. Not being selected in no way diminishes anyone's good work or their service record. As part of the process, each applicant is asked if they will support the candidate(s) selected. The NPRC carefully evaluated all applicants this recent election cycle according to our process and by-laws, which were thoroughly explained to each applicant. All of the applicants gave their word that they would support the candidate(s) selected. By a majority vote, the NPRC selected John Everitt and Michele Matsikoudis as our candidates for New Providence Borough Council. 

The NPRC is very proud to endorse and fully support John Everitt and Michele Matsikoudis. We are excited and proud to have the full support and endorsement of our Union County GOP.
