“When the New Jersey state director position opened up, we knew that we would need someone with an unwavering dedication to excellence and an indomitable will to tear down barriers to success, and that’s why Tony is the clear choice to lead the chapter,” said Beth Anne Mumford, who serves as AFP Regional Director and oversees operations in New Jersey. “During his tenure as grassroots director, Tony grew grassroots engagement and helped to advance our vision across the state and throughout the wider community. I am confident that with Tony leading our efforts in New Jersey, our activists’ success will continue to grow.”


Tony Howley is a lifelong resident of Monmouth County and has devoted his professional life to advancing sound policy, commonsense government and building the business community.
