Growing up in Bergen County, Jason Sarnoski learned the value of hard work from a young age. His father was a police officer and volunteer firefighter, and his mother was a Catholic school teacher – but it often wasn’t enough, so Jason’s father worked side jobs as a carpenter to provide for his family.
Today, Jason and his wife Tammi are providing for their own family in Independence, and he’s instilling in them that same appreciation for hard work and the pursuit of the American Dream.
Jason graduated from Lyndhurst High School and attended Stevens Institute of Technology where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master’s in Technology Management. Today Jason helps maintain New Jersey’s electrical grid and leads major capital projects for JCP&L.
Jason was elected to the Warren County Freeholder Board in 2010 on a promise of voter-approved bonding and more open, honest government. He has kept both promises.
As a Warren County Freeholder, Jason has balanced the budget, reduced county debt to almost zero, and lowered taxes. He’s also reduced the county budget to its lowest overall level in more than a decade and cut the size of county government.
As an engineer, Jason is used to taking on tough challenges. When things stagnate, Jason makes them move. When others gave up, he created the Warren County Economic Development Committee to drive business and jobs to northwest New Jersey. When the opioid epidemic hit our communities, he founded the Warren County Heroin and Opioid Awareness Task Force to fight addiction and clean up our communities.
Jason fights for better infrastructure on the Board of the New Jersey Transportation Planning Authority, and he fights for children as an appointed member of the Governor’s Task Force on Child Abuse and Neglect.
As an elected member of the Republican State Committee, Jason is working to elect more Republicans across New Jersey. His parents are doing the same as active members of the Bergen County Republican Organization.
Jason is running for Congress to replicate in Washington what he’s done in Warren: reduce taxes, cut spending, and get to a balanced budget for the sake of New Jersey families.
