Washington, D.C. — Maggie’s List, a federal political action committee (PAC) dedicated to electing fiscally conservative women to federal office and statewide executive office,is proud to announce the endorsement of Rosemary Becchi for New Jersey’s 7th Congressional district.

As a candidate for Congress, Rosemary brings valuable, first-hand experience in both public policy and the law. She has spent her career working on the front lines of policy and regulatory matters, developing collaborative relationships with key leaders in both chambers of Congress, the Treasury Department, the Securities Exchange Commission, the Federal Reserve Board and other federal and state agencies as well as industry and trade associations. Rosemary also has been a political advocate both on the national and local level. She has authored multiple commentary pieces on tax and financial services issues. She has served in a leadership role of the Tax Coalition, including serving as the chair. Most recently, Rosemary was Chairman of the Board of Running Start, an organization dedicated to getting more women elected to public office.

“Rosemary Becchi is a proven leader who has brought so much to Maggie’s List and New Jersey,” states Sandra B. Mortham, Chairman of Maggie’s List and former elected Florida Secretary of State. “Her service as our NJ state chair, coupled with her relentless leadership and desire to work on issues that directly impact citizens and businesses in the Garden State, makes her the right choice. We know that Rosemary will not only make an amazing representative, but will make a lasting, positive impact on New Jersey.”

“I’m deeply honored by this early and strong support from the conservative women behind Maggie’s List. My goal from the beginning, in founding Jersey First nearly two years ago and now as a declared candidate for New Jersey’s District 7 Congressional seat, has been to promote the same values of individual responsibility, smaller government, fiscal conservatism and strong national security that Maggie’s List has represented for nearly a decade,” states Rosemary.

“We have a very strong message in this campaign — that New Jersey families have been failed by career politicians for far too long. It’s time to send someone to Washington who wants to fix our problems with a broken immigration system, rising taxes, out-of-control spending, threats to our health care and soaring costs for education. I will go to Washington to do something, not be something,” continues Becchi.
