Bernards Township, NJ - On March 31, 2022, John Carpenter was selected to serve as the Bernards Township Republican Committee’s Vice Chair. John has been a proud member of the BTRMC for nearly 20 years and is fully committed to all Republicans winning. John noted in his remarks to the group that he would work tirelessly to ensure:
Janice Fields winning a second term on our Township Committee
Amber Murad winning a seat on the Somerset County Board of Commissioners
Suzanne Maeder winning the office of Somerset County Clerk
John Sheridan winning the office of Somerset County Sheriff
Tom Kean jr. winning a seat in the United States House of Representatives, and
Jack Ciattarrelli winning the Governorship of our great state
John understands that winning takes teamwork, experience and persistence.
Over the past 20 years John has helped win 30 seats on the Bernards Township Committee, managing 5 campaigns and raising over $400k for local candidates. John served 5 terms and 15 years on the Bernards Township Committee including 3 terms as mayor. He is the consummate team player, working closely with former Mayor Fields and other Township Committee members.
John believes that our beloved Republican party is the party of America, the party of the future that’s built on the bedrock principles of liberty, equality, opportunity and prosperity for all.

His extensive experience with every facet of local government and his strong relationships with leaders at all levels of the Republican Party will serve us well in his new leadership role.
