Statement from the Hamilton Township Republican Committee.
HAMILTON TOWNSHIP (MERCER)– Hamilton Township Republican Committee Chairwoman Ileana Schirmer announced their 2021 committee nominated council candidates.
“Republicans and I are excited about our newly nominated council candidates,” said Schirmer “We are proud to have Robert ‘Bob’ Diszler, Joe DeMarco, and James Boozan as our council candidates. Each candidate represents a segment out of our beautiful town and have spent their lives giving back tothe community.”
Bob Diszler is a life-long Hamiltonian and a proud father of two girls. Bob served 26 years as Hamilton Township Police Officer. During his 26 years of service, Bob has served as a patrol officer, swat team member, field training officer, detective in criminal investigations, and school resource officer at Steinert High School. Bob was also elected PBA local 66 president for 2 terms, and even awarded Police Officer of the Year. Bob retired in July of 2019 from the Hamilton Police Department, where he is now currently working towards his CPA exam.
Joe DeMarco has been a long-time Hamilton resident. He has been a Sports Performance Trainer for the past 25 years. He owns a sports performance training center in Hamilton with the main goal of providing kids with a place and avenue where they can succeed both academically and athletically. As a business owner, he knows first-hand the struggles that come with owning a small business in New Jersey and in Hamilton. Throughout his business ownership and career, Joe has worked with many Hamilton school children and has seen the overall benefits of children participating in sports. He has seen them become successful adults who contribute back to our community and many who, themselves, have opened their own small businesses. To Joe, giving back to the community he loves and restoring pride back in Hamilton is essential.
James Boozan is a life-long resident of Hamilton. He is a family man and a proud father of four girls. He is an Executive for several Behavioral Health facilities throughout the country, with one located in North Jersey. James also volunteers for various non-profits to help with the growing substance abuse and mental health issues in our society especially among children. James is getting involved with politics to help make a change in his local community. There are many pressing issues we face as a society, as well as Hamiltonians, but with the right people in office, James believes we can make a positive change and work to enhance Hamilton’s history of being a safe, small town, families gravitate to.
This year, Hamilton residents will have a choice to continue with the special interest, insider deals or a choice to return to traditional values, public safety andrecreation, the Hamilton we deserve.
