I’m excited to advocate for our teachers, students, small businesses, infrastructure, and environment.”

“Lukac and Panico are a strong and dynamic ticket,” said Somerset County Republican Chairman Tim Howes. “They are in touch with Somerset County values and I am confident that they will represent us well.”
