Republican Candidate Enters Race as Write-In
By Barbara A. Preston | July 6, 2020
Jeffrey Grant, a Belle Mead resident, is running as a write-in candidate in the July 7 primary election. If he receives 30 write-in votes, his name will appear on the November general election ballot.
"As a 15-year resident of Montgomery Township, I am at the ready to pitch in and return the goodwill to our town that our town has provided to me and my family," says Grant.
While raising his children, he served on the Somerset County Energy Council, where in addition to other contributions, he supported the chairman and others in helping guide Somerset Country freeholders in meaningful energy policies and actions. In particular, he says he assisted Somerset County towns and school districts develop energy efficiency projects by managing energy audits for more than 80 buildings, resulting in proposed projects totaling $32 million. He is in his twelfth year of service on the Somerset County Energy Council.
"New Jersey and America’s experience with career politicians occupying elected office gives citizens status quo government. Not anymore," according to Grant's campaign literature, which has a campaign slogan, “Make New Jersey Great Again.”
"We are offering New Jersey the opportunity to break the bonds of the old-guard and bring in fearless patriots that will fight to finally make government work for us.
Grant's website states he "is a non-establishment patriot, born in Trenton, raised in Titusville who spent his career working in New Jersey. For the past 10 years he has led and continues to lead the Central Jersey Conservative Union educating and networking with citizens that believe in our Constitution and in improving our government by protecting our freedom."
Jeff is employed as an energy and engineering expert in the commercial real estate industry and is a professional engineer.
