InsiderNJ 2019 Power List

Dale Florio

#19 Dale Florio

Florio possesses a calm, in-control and results-driven demeanor, which makes him stand out as a leader in a state so often conditioned by hyperactivity — and little progress.

He and his successor — Somerset County Republican Chairman Al Gaburo, who also works at the firm — didn’t have a good night in Somerset this year, but Florio and his team, Gaburo among them, wield tremendous, relationships-based power in Trenton. Watch this team as they undertake a more aggressive effort on behalf of former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli (R-16), already a 2021 candidate for governor.

Kevin Hagan

#30 Kevin Hagan

The veteran Princeton Public Affairs standout continues to aggressively and effectively represent Senate President Steve Sweeney’s (D-3) political interests statewide. One of the sharpest Democratic Party operators in the state, Hagan is a ruthless chess player most obviously bottling up the Murphy minions on the other side of the divide.

Bill Pascrell III

#75 Bill Pascrell III

The son of U.S. Representative Bill Pascrell (D-9) is a Princeton Public Affairs lobbyist and one of the premiere experts on gaming.

Sonia Delgado

#91 Sonia Delgado
