Committee assignments



Campaign themes

In an interview with the Gloucester County Times, Gilbert listed his top priorities:

  • "New Jersey’s unemployment rate is 9.4 percent, our residents are paying the highest property taxes in the nation, and throughout our region families are struggling to make ends meet. With that said, my top three priorities are attracting good paying jobs to our region, ensuring that our residents keep more of what they earn, and providing the police and fire services that will keep them safe in their homes and communities." [2]
