- Create Jobs
- Excerpt: "We’ll use our combination of private sector experience in small business, marketing, tourism and agriculture, to revitalize the local economy and create the good-paying jobs our residents need and deserve. We’ll do it by reducing taxes and streamlining burdensome regulations that stop local businesses from growing and that discourage new ones from settling here."
- Lower Property Taxes
- Excerpt: "Governor Christie’s bi-partisan passage of the 2% property tax cap and pension-benefit reforms were an important first step to ending our standing as the highest taxed state in the nation. We credit people on both sides of the aisle who voted to pass it. We will work with Governor Christie to enact these reforms right away. Politics should no longer get in the way of providing comprehensive property tax relief to our residents."
- Combat Crime
- Excerpt: "We will work with members of the law enforcement community to put more police in our business districts, neighborhoods and schools. We will continue to oppose the expansion of the Cumberland County prison system, like the hastily arranged, backroom deal hatched by incumbent politicians to add to the 10,000 inmates already housed there – which will have an adverse affect on our crime rate and our communities."
- Improve Education
- Excerpt: "We support many of the reforms championed by Governor Christie and leading Democrats like opportunity scholarships, an expansion of charter schools, tenure reform and rewarding the very best teachers with higher pay. In addition, we support expanded educational opportunities for students who would prefer technical career training that readies them to enter the competitive job market of the 21st Century should they choose not to pursue college."
On their 2011 campaign site, the District 1 Republicans detailed their "7 Point Plan." The following is an overview of that plan:

- Impose a Hard Cap on State Spending and Pay As You Go.
- Direct Contact with Constituents.
- Provide Constituents with Accessible Information on Every Vote Cast.
- Empower Local Governments to Save Money.
- Return to a Part Time Legislature.
On Wednesday, October 21, the District 1 legislative candidates took part in a debate sponsored by the League of Women Voters.

Fiocchi won election in the 2013 election for New Jersey General Assembly District 1. Fiocchi was bracketed with Kristine Gabor. He was unopposed in the June 4 Republican primary. He and incumbent Bob Andrzejczak (D) defeated incumbent Nelson Albano (D) and Kristine Gabor (R) in the general election which took place on November 5, 2013. 
Samuel Fiocchi was a candidate for District 1 of the New Jersey General Assembly. He was bracketed with Suzanne Walters in the primary. Fiocchi and Walters defeated Peter Boyce and Paul Halley in the primary on June 7. Nelson Albano and Matthew Milam won the Democratic primary unopposed.
PolitickerNJ notes that District 1 appears to have Republican leanings--on paper. However, strong historical support for Senator Jeff Van Drew (D) calls the predictive power of these figures into question. However, NJSpotlight notes that Republicans seem to be focused on reclaiming the district's assembly seats. Nevertheless, redistricting weakened the Republican base in District 1.
