Sam was born and raised in Vineland where his family has resided for over 100 years. He attended Sacred Heart Grammar school in Vineland and went to St Augustine Preparatory School in nearby Richland, NJ.
After being accepted to Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania to pursue a business degree, he was compelled to leave school to help run his family’s faltering farm equipment business. Together with his partner and brother Lee, they turned the fortunes of their business around. Under the leadership of Sam and Lee they expanded from a small local firm that grew to conduct business throughout the northeast region of the United States and internationally.
After a successful business career, where he created jobs for nearly four decades, Sam wanted to give back to his community by serving the public as an elected official. He first served a term as a Freeholder in Cumberland County, fighting to keep taxes in check and helping to promote a pro-business agenda. After serving a term as Freeholder, he won an election for a seat in the 1st Legislative District in the New Jersey General Assembly. Sam fought against the liberal policy agenda put forth by the Democrats in Trenton. An ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment Sam fought and voted against policies that chip away at our 2nd Amendment Rights, policies similar to those recently passed by the Assembly and, conveniently for Jeff Van Drew, not coming for a vote in the state Senate until after his congressional primary election, giving him the opportunity to continue to pretend to be a “conservative” Democrat.
Sam is currently running for the House of Representatives in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional to keep fighting for New Jersey and support President Trump’s agenda, to help drain the swamp and Make America Great Again!
