I am Jacci Vigilante and I am proud to serve as the Chair of the Gloucester County GOP for the 2018 to 2020 term. I have been a resident of Gloucester County since 2000, when I moved here from Pennsylvania with my husband and three sons. My husband, a retired paramedic, and I have been married 26 years. Our three sons, Christopher, Alexander and Daniel are all pursuing their college and post graduate degrees. While I have been a lifelong Republican, I have only recently become active in politics as a candidate and now as County Chair. In my view, raising my children was my most important role and now that they are older and on their adult paths I want to direct my energy and talents to the challenge of growing our party, making it stronger and electing good republicans in our municipalities and counties.
I have been a licensed attorney for thirty years and have been blessed with a career that I love. The Vigilante Law Firm in Mullica Hill is the law firm I founded more than 20 years ago. I am a Certified Civil Trial Attorney and I concentrate my practice in the areas of employment and civil rights litigation in the federal and state courts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I employ five attorneys plus support staff and we also offer legal representation in wills, estates, personal injury, and municipal court matters. For many years I have fought for, and continue to fight for, the rights of employees, including municipal employees who have fallen victim to South Jersey’s infamous political infighting. I have the privilege and honor to serve as a leader and lecturer in many professional associations, including the NJ Association for Justice and the National Employment Lawyers Association. I am a frequent panelist, planner and moderator on legal topics including ethics and litigation.
I am a proud 1988 graduate of Temple University School of Law and 1985 graduate of Cabrini College.
Gloucester County is ready for new Republican growth and I am excited to lead this organization for the next two years. I am honored to serve this organization with a great team, including Lisa, Carolyn and Steve. Our goal is to grow the Gloucester County GOP with new members, volunteers and most importantly local candidates who will bring back fiscal conservatism in our County. We have already implemented monthly happy hours and breakfasts to give our members an opportunity to meet their fellow Republicans and join forces to get our local and county candidates elected.
