Focused On United Effort To ‘Send Pallone Home’
PLAINFIELD, NJ – Small business owner and community leader Shannon Wright has announced that she will suspend her campaign for the Republican nomination in the Sixth Congressional District and offer her support to fellow businesswoman Diane Gooch.
“This campaign was never about me. It was about my family, my friends and neighbors throughout the district, and Frank Pallone’s stunning lack of effective representation in Washington. His unabashed and proud support in cosponsoring Speaker Pelosi’s takeover of nearly 1/5th of the US economy via the healthcare power grab is more evidence of his having lost touch with those he is supposed to represent.”
In her primary campaign to take on Pallone, Wright won the endorsement of the Union County Republican Committee and received votes at all four of the district’s county screening committees or conventions.
“Diane Gooch has run a successful business and created jobs in our local economy,” Wright said. “I’m confident she will bring common sense fiscal policies to Washington, DC. I’m proud to support her and look forward to working with her to help Frank Pallone find another line of work, because we can’t afford him anymore.”
Wright, who holds a degree in economics from Virginia State University, is a Certified Small Business Planner with the American Management Association. She is a Pastor with her church and a small business owner. She lives in Plainfield with her husband and four children.
